A word from Pizzeria Gusto
Pizzeria Gusto is an extension of my dinner table, where friends, family and loved ones gather together to share conversation, laughter, food and wine. The aroma"s, sight's and sounds are a constant reminder of centuries old Italian traditions, which instantly welcome you to the family. We believe that pizza is the perfect food. A blank canvas that has unlimited possibilities in both taste and texture. By using fresh local produce and authentic Italian ingredients your experience will surely have you saying "Bellisimo"! Our wood burning oven comes from Reggelo, 20 km from Florence. The Valoriani oven is hand crafted by a family of artisans that has been perfecting their skills for 5 generations. Its domed brick roof and 650 degree temperature is the perfect vessel for creating the perfect pizza.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "This was our 2nd visit to Pizzeria Gusto and we will continue to go back everyone we are in the city! The only thing better than the food is the service! I wish you served more cocktail options but other than that everything is fantastic! Also I love that your full menu is available online and that you can make reservations online too!"

  • "We had a fantastic trip to Italy in the fall and thought no Winnipeg restaurant could rival the food and wine experience! Pizzeria Gusto didn't disappoint! - great wine selection and an interesting menu. Fantastic!"

  • "Four diners all enjoyed their pizzas and the outdoor patio. Service was great, and they didn't kick us out as we lingered and chatted well past the lunch hour. Not my first time here, will definitely be back."

  • "Pizzaria Gusto has excellent appetizers, we always get the bruschetta and the caprese salad and the tomatoes are so fresh and delicious. There is always a special bruschetta too. The pizza crust is amazing and the pizzas are unique and flavourful. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable."

  • "We had a group of 6 somewhat high maintence friends that chose pizzeria gusto for dinner. What a great decision. Our waiter was flawless. The food was amazing. And the patio was barnone the best in the city!! Thanks Pizzeria Gusto, you will see us again!"

  • "Made a reservation via website and was seated after a couple that walked in after us. Stood around for nearly 10 minutes while the whole time we could see the empty table that which we eventually got sat at."

  • "Food is always amazing!! Pizza is phenomenal. One complaint: I hate that parties of 2 get pushed to the bar. Our only choice was that or the patio and it was wet outside."

  • "Enjoyed our dinner with friends last week. Although disappointed we couldn't sit on the patio due to uncooperative weather, staff made our dining experience just as memorable indoors. Beet salad is to die for and really enjoyed the roasted zucchini app as well. Pizzas and risotto were all delicious. And our server was great. Thanks Gusto, we'll definitely be back."

  • "Been once before and thought I would share my great experience with my husband. Unfortunately, when I phoned to make a reservation, they were not open and referred me to the website. I recvd. web confirmation. When we arrived, we were told that "it clearly states that if you book on line, you will be sat at the bar". Oops! missed that! We sit at the bar, people reach in front of us to get cutlery from behind the bar, talk about service to other tables and basically we get a first hand info on the behind the scenes workings of a restaurant. The noise level in not energetic as specified on your dining experience form #1. It is too loud to talk even have a conversation without talking loud. Not romantic.Good for a crowd not good for 2 people."

  • "As always the food was spectacular. There were two of us for dinner so we were seated at the barstools instead of a table and this was where the experience wasn't so great. We were on the end of the bar where the sinks are (the pizza makers are on the other end) and were mostly privy to the employees drying silverware and rinsing things. Second we didn't seem to have a dedicated server where we were sitting and so sometimes no one seemed to be helping us and at other times several people were checking on us. When a drink was empty or we wanted to pay it seemed to be the former. Overall love the place though and will go back again."

  • "Pizzeria Gusto serves the best pizza in Winnipeg, at least among the many establishment's I've tried. I've never been to Italy but Pizzeria Gusto is as good as any pizza I've had anywhere including NYC, LA and Chicago. This is world-class pizza. It is expensive though, so for us this restaurant will be reserved for special occasions. Plan on $75 plus tip for 2 people (2 pizzas, 1 beer, 1 coke, 1 appetizer). We did have most of a pizza to take home though, and it was just as tasty heated up the next day."

  • "The food and service were both great. The place was really loud, even though we went on a Tuesday the whole place was packed until around 10."

  • "My three friends and I dined tue eve in the indoor dining room since the patio was not own due to bad weather. It was extremely noisy and we were not able to carry on a conversation. Both pizzas were palatable- skimpy toppings and limp crust and very expensive. Also the least expensive wine was a pinot Grigio for an outrageous $38. All in all not a good dining experience for our group"

  • "A world class experience. The beet salad, calamari and the Lucia pizza were such a good combo that I don't have the vocabulary to do them justice. It is loud but I didn't mind to much. However we were told that they are going to be hanging acoustic tiles. I hope this doesn't dampen the energy!!!"

  • "I made reservations for 8 pm for my partner and I. Due to the rain, all the reservations were backed up because everyone who was oringinally sitting out on the patio had to be seated inside.with seating already so limited it made things very chaotic. We had to wait probably 15 to 20 minutes for our table. The hostess and servers were friendly and professional though. Once we finally got seated, we discovered how loud it was really was inside the restaurant. You could not even hear what the person next to you was saying. We ordered calamari and Pizza's. The calamari was tasty but we were dissappointed in the quanity we got. It was such a small portion for such a steep price. Pizza's were agood. nice and light."

  • "We had the pleasure of dining here on Saturday on the patio, a favourite place of mine. The food was amazing as always. The service was above and beyond. It started to pour rain and as soon as it did multiple staff came outside and began putting up umbrellas for all the guests. It began to rain harder and our server grabbed us blankets. She tried her best to find us a table inside so we could enjoy the rest of our meal inside and even offered us another glass of wine once we were seated inside. Overall the staff handled an uncontrollable event with the best of their abilities, we felt very taken care of and will definitely be back!"

  • "We ate here when the restaurant first opened and it was terrible. That being said, we gave it another chance and it was AMAZING! Staff were wonderful, food was so amazing I wanted to stay and try everything on the menu! We will recommend to everyone and will be back soon to try more! Pizza's were so full of flavor and I recommend the antipasto board...a must have!"

  • "I thoroughly enjoyed the Lucia pizza. Crust and toppings were beautifully combined. I devoured the whole serving although I'm a light eater. Had a wonderful wine selection. It was a white blended grape and can't recall the name. Is the restaurant's most popular white. Had the 9" glass and was stunned at the price. Unfortunately the wine prices seem to be hugely inflated and quite outrageous. This is out of step with the fairly-prized menu that has some divine offerings. I'll need to think twice on recommending Gusto for this reason or will be advising my friends and colleagues to sip at home before the meal. That's too bad as the wine selections are such a beautiful complement to the food."

  • "This was our first visit to the restaurant. We will definitely be back! From the appetizers to the pizza choices, all were different and delicious"

  • "Was not impressed when they tried to stick my wife and I at the bar simply because there were only 2 of us. It was our 8 year anniversary and it ruined our night. They gave us a table after I complained but still. I know it says that you "may" be seated at the bar on the website, bug there is no option to request a table."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Food was fantastic!! Can't wait to try the other different pizza, I had the Antipasto, and the Luda pizza. I ordered Campline drink and I didn't like it and server didn't do anything about it. I didn't drink it. We didn't get greeted by our server for about 15 minutes, thank goodness they have these cute water boys. Food was absolutely great, service not so much.. Sat on the patio and it was good, great vibe."

  • "The restaurant is fine. We were very disappointed that we reserved the restaurant for a business dinner meeting and requested the downstairs room. Reservations can only be made on line and I received an email advising our reservation had been accepted. A few days before our meeting we were advised that we couldn't have the downstairs room as it had already been booked. It was too late to change venues and the noise level in the restaurant was not conducive to conduct a meeting. It would have been better if we were told that we did not have the downstairs room a lot sooner so we could have made other arrangements."

  • "This is the third, and final time, I am going to visit Pizzeria Gusto. Each time I have been so disappointed with the food, quality, quantity, pricing and overal atmosphere. This time, I decided to venture away from pizza as I was not pleased with the pizzas I ordered in my previous visits. Instead, I ordered the beet salad and the calamari. The beet salad was medicore and the calamari was bland. We were a group of eight ladies and two of the ladies were unable to see due to the inability of the shades to do their job. You were able to hear the person sitting next to you but certainly not anyone more than a person away. I would love to say this is my favourite neighbourhood restaurant but there are so many better options."

  • "From start to finish our dining experience was amazing! The brussel sprout appy, caesar salad, the don pizza and the sylvia pizza (with egg) were to die for! Service was attentive and friendly without being the least bit intrusive! All said and done I will be back again soon! Pizzeria Gusto is amazing!"

  • "Made reservations at Pizzeria Gusto after attending a work dinner there. My friends and I greatly enjoyed the unique toppings and original combinations of their pizza. Who would've thought pear would be a pizza topping!? Dessert was absolutely outstanding. Some kind of delicious chocolate delicacy, topped with salt and served with whipped cream. The perfect combination of sweet and salty. You've made me a regular."

  • "As always, the food was delicious. A nice improvement from previous visits was the service! Made a reservation through Open Table only a few hours ahead, and had no trouble, was seated promptly. Also received attentive service throughout dinner. I used to say that PG was worth it for the food, but to expect a long wait and mediocre service... but it looks like things may be changing. Noisy dining room."

  • "Went to Pizzeria Gusto for my fiance's birthday dinner. When I received a confirmation call from the restaurant, the caller indicated that we could have a table as long as we were OK being finished with dinner by 7:30 so they could seat a group (which made it feel as though larger groups are more important because they generate more revenue). The restaurant was fairly loud, though not because of other diners; the music was too loud for the hard, industrial walls. The food was excellent, though, which made up for having to shout at each other a bit. Drink menu left something to be desired (as I don't drink wine or beer)."

  • "I have bee going here for years and, while other restaurants are constantly updating, this tends to do the same old every time. I find it is consistently ok to good with the occasional Wow. They should look to Chew, Deer & Almond, & Deseo - every experience at these places is WOW!"

  • "Really good food really good service. Loved that the server was making recommendations. They were at the table often enough but not too much. Too many glasses at the table. Lovely to have glasses for different wines etc. but not enough room for food. We ended up having to put stuff on the floor."

  • "We reserved lunch for 4. Each of us picked a pizza and shared. Food was fabulous! Service was great! We never felt rushed even though we were probably past the lunch hours. We felt our meal was very tasty, reasonably priced ,hunger satisfiying, and we had leftovers too. I'll return!"

  • "We went to this restuarant for a birthday gathering and it was so nice. We had requested a window table and were given a window table. Thank you! So often when a request is made at a Resturant it is ignored. Our server was excellent especially with wine recommendations. The food was outstanding. Two of us had the carbonara and the third person pizza. The fettuccini carbonara is out of this world,so so good. The only thing is for the price we were expecting a little larger portion. The Resturant filled up quickly and it was alittle loud but that's to be expected since its not a huge space. We are definitely going back and we have found our new favorite Resturant in Winnipeg!!"

  • "I came with an Australian friend and she requested tea but was told that tea is not available as it is not an Italian beverage, which was a disappointment. The salad with pine nuts was very good and the pizza was OK, not as good as last time, but I would have liked it cooked a bit more. Pellegrino in such a large bottle - not very cool! Noise level was acceptable until a gentleman with a very loud voice was seated beside us."

  • "We were simi regulars of this restaurant for years, dining about once every few months. Recently however, we have moved from Winnipeg to Brandon, so it has been four months since our last "pizza with an egg" fix. Since we were in town for the wine show we decided to dine at Gusto. We had hoped to get a table due to the late 9:00 seating but unfortunately only the bar was available. We explained to the hostess our situation and she went to work trying to acomidate us. We were found a table after a small glass of wine at the bar, then proceeded to have a fantastic meal. You sometimes see service slide in great restaurants as they mature, but not at Gusto. Great experience."
