South San Franciso Italian GemFound limited dining choices during a business trip to San Bruno. Saw Buon Gusto recommended on Yelp as well as referred by hotel staff. Excellent menu options for both traditional pasta and chicken or veal dishes. I had the veal marsala and enjoyed it very much. The accompanying polenta was excellent. The wine list was brief with quality choices at a reasonable price.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat local spotWe had lunch and really enjoyed the Petrale Sole and the special risotto. It was our first time there but we felt treated like we were regulars. We will be back!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMViva Italia! Good food & CocktailsAll 3 of us enjoyed the cocktails and our Veal dishes. They even substituted spaghetti for the polenta as described on the menu. Everyone was so nice & friendly. Tables a bit too close together, but it is a small space.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMBest foodWe always enjoy the wonderful home feel and service.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful salad served withwonderful salad served with all meals!! we have never had a bad dinner or been unhappy with our meal.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHigh-quality "Old-Line" ItalianAs South San Francisco had a large Italian immigrant community, it naturally had many "old-line" Italian restaurants. And that is what Buon Gusto is, a place to go to get high quality traditional Italian food, not trendy Northern Italy haute cuisine. It's very friendly with excellent service, a nice wine list and well prepared Italian classics,.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly and welcomingI had the sole and it was fine. Not much in the way of choices for our daughter who can't eat gluten
They did offer to prepare her a special sauce that would work, which was nice considering how busy they were.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect neighborhood goodieGood parking, excellent food, great service and nice atmosphere with reasonable prices--what more could one want in a restaurant. This is a neighborhood gem and easy to get to.
Definitely a "go"5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBuon Gusto ReviewFood was tasty and skillfully prepared.Waiter made several errors in calculating our bill (none in our favor.) One we caught, which the manager fixed, and one I didn't catch until after we left the restaurant (on two of three entrees, we were charged higher prices than on the menu. I believe we were charged the prices for the sole "special", rather than the sole meniere on the menu, which is what we ordered.) Also, the sales tax was added to the full price, rather than the actual price charged (we had a $15 off entertainment. com coupon.) Generally, this is a good place, but I recommend checking your bill carefully against the menu prices as well as other calculations to ensure accuracy (we shouldn't have to worry about that.)5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Neighborhood RestaurantA nice place in South San Francisco near hotel. Recommend if you're in the mood for Italian.
