Delish! Italian Food Nom Nom! & 15% off bill! Niiice
I was out and about in South SF and stumbled upon this great Italian restaurant. The foh and servers were very nice and attentive, but the food was even better. I am a Lasagne snob and can honestly say that this was the best i ever had. they also offer a nice 15% discount to boot. If you are ever in SSF, check this place out, you won't be disappointed. Don't forget to print up your discount coupon!
This place has great food and it has great workers.
I have been going there since I was a little kid and I love it. Even right when you walk in they greet you and talk to you before you get seated. Every birthday since I can remeber I have had my family dinner there. They turn down all the lights and bring out dessert with a candle and sing to you. Usually, everyone in the resteraunt is singing happy birthday and that makes you feel very good. I love this place and I miss it since I have moved away. I love everyone who works there, they make you feel like part of the Buon Gusto family. I love Buon Gusto!
This restaurant is a great find for me and my friends. Truly an unexpected surprise because never in my life have I had such a wonderful dining experience. Not only is the food delicious, the staff really makes you feel at home. We didn't have reservations, but they managed to seat us right away even though it was really crowded. I highly recommend calling in for reservations if you do plan on dining there.
Being that my family is from Italy, I love this restaurant! The food is amazing, the portions are huge! You get soup or salad with the meal! Everything is outstanding! The calamari are to die for. A secret: try the filet mignon-- super good, even by steakhouse standards. And you will enjoy the tiramisu, zabaglione or the chocolate mousse!
We held our wedding rehearsal dinner at Buon Gustos. We called about a month and a half before to reserve and there was no problem holding the spot. The manager (or head waiter, I forget) helped us select a choice of appetizers and entrees for guests to choose from, along with tiramisu and coffee for dessert. Our party had 30 people and we all fit comfortably into their back room. While taking orders, the waiters made sure to check on special requests for a vegetarian and 2 children. The veggie got a range of meat-free dishes to choose from while the children picked spaghetti and meatballs for half price. I want to say that the parents were very conscious of asking for changes on the menu, but the staff didnt bat an eye. Water glasses and wine carafes were always full. Every one of the staff were friendly, helpful, and seemed to genuinely enjoy making our party a success. As for the food, I was really impressed. So impressed, we went back with my parents-in-laws 2 DAYS later (after the wedding) for our last meal before the honeymoon. What grabbed my attention first was an appetizer of simple tagliatelle with tomato and mushroom sauce. The homemade pasta itself was thin, delicate, and tender and the sauce jumped out at you with a full-flavored, vibrant taste. This is the dish I had as an entree on the second visit. Everyone was impressed. Next, the seafood entree choice of salmon had a similar but chunkier sauce. The house red wine served with dinner paired perfectly with the strong flavors of the food, strong enough to stand up to the acidity, but not harsh or overly tannic. Lovely slices of tiramisu and shots of marsala ended the dinner on an elegant and sweet end. What I didnt know until a couple nights later is that Buon Gustos also makes an excellent minestrone with great depth of flavor unlike every other bland version I have tried. Definitely a quality place.
service is great. they treat everyone as if they our their best customer (first time or not)..\r <br>\r <br>you are never rushed. kids welcomed. beer and wine only (never seen any drunk) good wine list. great appertizers
Buon Gustos is a great restaurant in SSF. I had the Pasta with prawns, mushrooms and peas. My husband had the Veal Parmigian, excelent. We used to go to this restaurant over 10 years ago and it is stil just as friendly and delicious. We like the casual feel it has also. Highly recomended!
I don't live in So.SF, but I work and spend a lot of time there. Grand Ave. area can have a nice small-town feel and if you go to some of their restaurants multiple times the staff remember and appreciate you, and Buon Gusto is that type of place. Buon Gusto is a bustling old style Italian restaurant that is consistently good. Menu, albeit fairly standard, has solid veal and chicken dishes, several pastas including popular frutti di mare (sp?). Complimentary after-dinner shot of marsala is a nice touch. Meals are comforting and satisfying. Place is as elegant or casual as you want to make it. There are a lot of things I like about ""downtown"" SSF and Buon Gusto is one of them.
I highly recommend this place if you are into authentic Italian food at it's best. Great Ambience, very knowlegable staff and an incredible value for everything on the menu. Everything is homeade and prepared to perfection. The Tirmasu is a must have for Dessert!!!! Go now, don't wait you are in for a real treat!!!
My wife and I visited Ristorante Buon Gusto for the first time and would highly recommend it to anyone who wanted great Italian food in a wonderful atmosphere. Our waiter was courteous and prompt with his service. The food from the salad to dessert was way above average. We will return as often as possible.
