Stopped in for dinner after a 12 hour flight based on our check-in clerks recommendation! Glad we decided to give it a go! Small but very personable restauraunt with very good italian food and service. Wine selection decent and at reasonable prices! None of us tried anything out of the norm and found all our dishes tasty and well done.... More

This was a last minute choice because of convenience to our hotel near San Fran airport. We had no reservation but were greeted at the door by the owner like we were neighborhood friends. Got seated quickly and the owner even offered a better table that just cleared than the one originally they were setting. We were hungry after a... More

While on our way to the San Francisco International Airport from San Jose, my wife and I came across this absolute gem of a restaurant in South San Francisco. We were delighted to see the owner (Julian McClendon) on-site, enthusiastically overseeing the entire operation. Service was very friendly and attentive (complete with some excellent menu suggestions). Ristorante Buon Gusto offers... More

Have dined their many times. Food & service the best. Never a bad experience. They serve real veal, not process type. Very quiet with soft music background.

We had just flown into town and were looking for a place to eat and found this gem. We are not big Italian food fans but really enjoyed it here. Very traditional and helpful staff. A lot of variety in the menu too. It hit the spot for us!

This is the classic fine dining venue. I've eaten at probably 10 places in South City and this is one of the best Italian places I've gone to. I've eaten there twice and both times, it was great. Try to order an entree b/c you get the polenta with it. That is to die for. This last time, I had... More
