Great dinner option

This is the first time we've been to Buon Gusto in a few years. We're definitely glad we returned! We arrived at about 4:30 on a Saturday, and had our choice of seating. We sat at a prime table location on the patio. By the time we left barely an hour later, the restaurant was crowded, with... read more

I love this place and go here when I can. The owners make just about everything themselves and the food is delicious. I eat organic at home and going out can be iffy, but this place is all natural and everything I've tried is first rate. The inside is kind of small, but friendly, and the service is personal. If...

I live close to downtown and have been here many many times! So I wanted to bring my clients in for "real" Italian food, of course I ordered the butternut squash ravioli (which is to die for) and my clients ordered the eggplant Parmesan, and the chicken pesto thin crust pizza, They were blown away with the food. This was... More

Great Italian food. They use fresh ingredients, and change things up a bit every once in a while. This is a very small restaurant, so not great for a big group. Although, they may rent out for a larger group. We've made reservations for 8 or so with no problem.

Pretty good. Very quaint place, but sound does travel, especially with children. The butternut squash was delicious, not too sweet. It was just a nice, overall experience. I would return again.

Our family ate dinner at this restaurant on April 3, 2015. We had a reservation at 6pm and did not have to wait for a table - we were seated immediately upon arrival. For beverages, two members of our family had wine - one had a Moscato and one had a Chianti. The third family member had an Italian beer... More

Really tasty food with reasonable prices and great gluten free options. Parking is a bit of an issue, but otherwise, we loved it.

Always love, love the food. Soups, pastas and subs. The owners are very nice and always make sure we're happy with our meals. And LOVE the chocolate mousse especially with whip cream.

Homemade Italian food that is served in a cafe style atmosphere. Even the gluten free menu is fantastic.
