“Hidden Gem! Delicious, friendly, inexpensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2011

We've been going to Buon Gusto since it opened.
The owners are warm and welcoming. Basic Italian menu with lots of specials-from fresh seafood to veal chop to steak. Everything comes with a house salad. Some dishes I love -linguini with white clam sauce and small Manila clams, lots of them, huge veal chop on an arugula salad, steak with brandy peppercorn sauce. If you go before 6, the second meal is half price. AND... you can bring your own wine, a great savings. Delicious food,great prices.You can't miss. Make a reservation, it's small.

“A nice family place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2011

This is our favorite neighborhood restaurant. The food is reliably good, if not fancy. The portions are a nice size, it's reasonably priced, and you can bring your own wine. The owner is a nice guy who frequently checks on the floor chats with the patrons, and actually listens. The wait staff can be clueless, though I've never found them rude, so it's pretty much what I expect of a family place. The restaurant itself is kind of "Italian suburban homey". The other restaurants in town are fancier, and more expensive. Buon Gusto is a relaxed place where you go on a Tuesday night when you just want a nice break from the kitchen.

“Great neighborhood Italian -BYOB is a nice bonus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2011

I question the sanity of the reviewer who had a terrible experience. We've been going since they opened. We average once every week or so. They serve solid Italian red sauce type dishes. Some are better than others, some are very very good. They are much better than the average quality of typical westchester restaurants. They staff has always been great with us. They know our kids by name and treat us like family. It's a relaxed evening whenever we dine there. It's not a 5 star restaurant, but that's not what they are trying to be. They are our faviority neighborhood Italian in southern westchester.

“Horrible experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2010

Service was extremely poor underscored by rude waitstaff. In addition the food was of sub-par quality. Other restaurants in Irvington are far superior.

“Wonderful Italian food that doesn't break the bank”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2009

The food was terrific and the prices surprisingly reasonable. The owners made sure we were happy with everything we ordered and even offered a sample of a wine that was being featured that we inquired about. As residents of Irvington, we will definitely return and have also begun to tell friends about this gem of a restaurant.
