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.

    Such excellent pizza. Ingredients all taste extremely fresh. Servers very friendly and prompt. Only thing I dislike about the restaurant is that the seating is so tight/tables are all so close together that the noise level gets rather high. Either way! Still delicious and I recommend this restaurant to many people.

    Had a lovely dinner here, we had someone with us who was hard of hearing and the inside dining is quiet loud. They were so nice and accommodating and set us up on the patio with a heater and some blankets in case we were cold. The food was amazing, probably one of the best pizza's id had in a long time. Crust was crispy and light, and the toppings were unique and delish. Service was attentive and kind and overall just a lovely evening. Will be back there soon!

    Although this is not a burger restaurant, it's Burger Week in Winnipeg and chef, Eric Lee, decided to participate with his special recipe. We split the burger and salad as well as the Brussel Sprout appetizer. Both portions were large. The burger was great (Pancetta, lettuce, special sauce, cheese). Yummmm!

    Our food was excellent. The beet salad and pizzas were well prepared and very tasty. The pizza crust was light and fluffy and the toppings were fresh and cooked to perfection. Our service was also very professional and friendly. The dessert was also scrumptious. We found the wine to be really expensive at $17 a glass. That was quite a shocker. Our bill for dessert and wine was almost as much as the salad and 2 pizzas.

    I, in future, will be specific about where I would like my party to be seated. I made the reservation far enough in advance thinking I would get a prime table on the patio. Instead we were seated inside and at one end of the communal table! I was very disappointed as were my friends. We did end up on the patio once one became vacant and I thank the staff for making it possible. I will be very specific about my seating preferences in the future.

    We love Pizzeria Gusto! They have such a great atmosphere. We sat out on the patio during this visit but have sat in the restaurant and even up at the bar. Which is fun to watch the pizzas being made and coming right out of the pizza oven. Such a wonderful evening spent with family enjoying wine and pizza!

    We went to Pizzeria Gusto to experience "real" pizza in winnipeg and we left knowing we will definitely go back. Food was amazing. ..the service was fantastic! Every single person in that restaurant made you feel like they appreciated you dining there and they all seemed genuinely happy to work there. They made small talk, explained the ovens, refilled your glass without you even noticing. We thoroughly enjoyed our "date night" away from the kids and look forward to our next visit Thank you for a great night

    Cesar salad was phenomenal. Brussels sprouts weren't as roasted as I expected... Seemed like they were boiled or steamed. Calamari was definitely better than battered deep fried versions. Romesca was a bit on the salty side. The Don was too meaty for me, but my other guests enjoyed it very much. Regina was ah-mazing! A little surprised my 9oz of quadri was poured all into the glass - at other restaurants they have small decanters to reserve 3oz or so. Overall, once again, I thought the food was delicious!

    I have been here a few times and although the food is excellent, I would have to say the service is sub par. Now the place was busy but that is just an excuse, if you are dropping a couple hundred dollars for dinner the least they could do is serve you promptly. Long waits for service, even between drinks as we spent over two hours in the restaurant and not because we wanted too but that was how long it took to get the food. Don't get me wrong, the people serving were very nice just not very efficient. The funny part was when the server came over to offer us a dessert and we passed, another person came over and promptly asked us if we could leave because they needed the table. Which was fine because we were done anyway

    Gusto is always a great spot, not only because the food is delicious but because the staff are amazing. Our waitress, who has been with them for years, was absolutely delightful - always cheery, incredibly helpful with the menu choices and checking in enough without being overbearing. Gusto is always a win.

    We shared a pizza (the Lucia, our favourite) and a caprese salad. The caprese is the the best we've had at any restaurant. The service was welcoming and attentive. As usual, we sat at the counter and watched the chefs prepare dozens of pizzas, readying them for the wood-fired oizza oven. They are amazing. Finished our meal with Cafe Americanos.
