Had a good dinner here and met the new owners. I enjoy a salad with salmon. My husband had a pizza. Both were good. We'll watch for changes

I dined here once before and remember enjoying it. This time was no exception but I think 3 stars is all I can give it this time. The food (spaghetti and meatballs) was very tasty, hard to get that dish wrong, usually. The GF and her daughter had simple pasta dishes also and liked them. Pasta perfectly done, sauces rich...

We are always nervous taking our 2.5 yr old out anywhere but want to get her more comfortable with dining out. We chose Buon Gusto because of a previous good experience (2+ yrs ago) and they actually had a kids menu online. We were seated quickly, the server was delightful (Paige), and they brought a cup of crayons and paper... More

Four of us (two couples) ate dinner at this restaurant in April of 2016. We had a reservation and our table was waiting for us. This is a small family-owned and operated Italian restaurant and it is best to have a reservation. Two people ordered the squash ravioli which everyone always raves about. I ordered the veal marsala which was... More

We've lived near this restaurant for as long as its 11 year existence, but only just visited. It will not be our last visit. The food is wonderful, the servings are large, the staff is knowledgeable. The seating area is small, but it also has an outdoor patio for days when the weather is nice.

If you have been to Europe you will appreciate the "feel" of this restaurant. It is smaller and feels like a Family European owned restaurant. I loved it when we were greeted so sweetly and ushered to a small table for 2. It was lunch so I had a salad which was perfecto. My sister in law and I felt... More

We ate here during a snowstorm because we just wanted to get out of the house. We found the food selection very nice. I especially enjoyed the gluten-free vegetarian lasagna.

Small establishment in downtown Brighton with authentic Italian feel. Staff is very friendly, owners care about your experience. Calamari was a bit overcooked, house salad & dressing was excellent, bread basket was ok, my chicken dish was very good, pasta with meat sauce was average. The rest of our group enjoyed their meals as well. Large wine list, beer, plus... More

My wife and I decided to check out a new to us local Italian eatery. Now that we are spoiled with the family vibe and authentic cuisine it will be hard to venture elsewhere. A++++ MUST TRY!

This is by far the best dining experience my husband and I have had in the past year. We dined at this restaurant for the first time for my husband's 50th birthday. The owner stopped by to check on our food. We could barely put our utensils down to converse with her. Normally I reserve some of my entire to... More
