“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

My extended family of six arrived in San Francisco exhausted and frazzled after a day of traveling. We made reservations on OpenTable slightly ahead of time, and by the time we arrived the staff at Buon Gusto were awaiting us with open arms. We were greeted warmly, joked with the service staff, and were shown to our choice of table in the intimate dining room. We had contact with several different staff members during our visit, all of whom were welcoming, friendly, witty, and all made us feel right at home. Food was delicious - not your typical Americanized Italian fare, to say that dishes were not over-sized or over-salted - and we all appreciated that. Wine list was versatile enough that we were able to find a couple of bottles that everybody enjoyed at reasonable prices. When returning to the area, I will be back, and will recommend this restaurant to any family or friends who plan to visit San Francisco. Buon Gusto is a neighborhood gem and will be remembered fondly by our family. Thank you so much!

“Birthday Dinner Party”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

After reading the rave reviews of the restaurant, we decided to have our birthday dinner party there. We also were celebrating our nephew appointment to the Superior Court Bench too. The food and the service were outstanding. The wine selection was also fabulous. We love the decor. Our party were twelve, everyone had a different dish. Everyone were very pleased with their selection. I personally had a filet mignon, It melted in my mouth. The hostess who greeted us visited our party multiple times to make sure we had a good time. This was very impressive. I will recommend this restaurant to all my family and friends. We definitely be back. We were told by other dinner guests that the restaurant lunches are also very enjoyable.

“Good Service. Good Food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

We ate here based on a hotel recommendation and glad we did. The house red wine is very good for the price and the food was very good as well. We are going to go back - we want to try the lasagna.
