Restaurant looks nice. Our server is friendly and helpful. Food tasted great, I had the pasta with clams and mussels.

The food was delicious. The server was very helpful and friendly but the place appeared short staffed and the food came out very slow. I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt that they had more diners than they anticipated on a Monday night.

Went for lunch with a friend and this was my first time. Had the Bolognese spaghetti and it was delicious. The server was very attentive and gracious. Asked for blue cheese, got house dressing but error was easily corrected. May be a little bit pricey...for lunch but depends on what you’re looking for or expecting. Nice, clean, ambience and food is good.More

Looking for a classy restaurant/bar at 430 in the afternoon on a weekday? This is the place - hands down! Empty when we got there as they just opened. Sat at the full bar with brother and ordered drinks. Jose, the bartender made awesome martinis...and was cordial and friendly. Ordered the calamari which was fresh and prepared perfectly! The warm bread given to us by the owner was to die for. Had great conversations with others that sat at the bar and all of a sudden turned around and the place was packed! On a Tuesday evening! Will absolutely return if ever staying by the airport and hoping to have a meal here next time! I would say it’s pretty authentic since we met and conversed with the owner from Italy. Try it!More

The greater was friendly the seating was comfy the service was too notch. Sadly the food fell short. I has seafood pasta and the shrimp clams and mussels tasted off their prime which ruins the dish. The sauce and pasta were very good so it...is sad to get past prime smelly seafood. Hubby had veal and liked it but a bit salty aide the bread is sourdough not typical for Italian but tasty. I would not return because of the seafood.More

My family had dinner here tonight. Food was "ok"...not bad, not great. I handed the waiter my credit card at the conclusion of the meal. Everyone at the table saw the handoff. 10 minutes later, the same waiter brings me the bill, not yet rung...up and with no credit card. I get up and show him the bill and he denies that he or anyone else has my card or ever even saw it. To avoid a scene, I paid with another card and we left. I then called Chase Bank, cancelled the card and replacements are on the way. This waiter seemed like a nice fellow, but he must be out in the ozone. We'll never ever return to this place.More

We looked up ‘italian restaurant’ coz my husband and I were in the mood for Italian food that night. We picked Buon Gusto as it seemed very friendly and were busy - a testimony that it’s a popular restaurant. On a cold rainy evening, sitting...in a homely comfortable place and receiving the warm attention of friendly staff who got us started with fresh bread and butter was a great beginning! We were delighted by the authentic fare, accompanied with the bottle of full bodied California wine that my husband picked from the menu. Had a great experience!More

Hi Reena, thank you so much for your review, business, and time. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your time spent with us and hope to serve you again soon.

Buon Gusto is a popular traditional Italian restaurant. The room is you classic Italian set up. It is not super fancy. Just comfortable. The service was competent. No issues good or bad. As for the food, I ordered what I always start with at new...Italian restaurants. The chicken parm. It was not memorable. And at $27.00 it should be more memorable. My companions enjoyed their eggplant parm and veal piccata better. I probably would not return on my own but I could be persuaded to try it again with friends.More
