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

  • "I made a reservation on Open Table a day or two beforehand for my girlfriend and I for her birthday. I had planned it to be a nice, relaxing, even romantic evening. When we got to "Gusto" we were promptly sat... at the bar? I thought it was a sort of "holding area" before we were taken to our actual table because of the small waiting area in the front.. but nope.. this was our destination. We waited for a few minutes to see if this was the case. There was a few tables open when we arrived.. I went to the hostess stand and asked if we could move to any of them or if they were reserved.. they were not. so they cleaned off a table for us and we were moved. It didn't ruin the night whatsoever, but i found it was very odd that we were sat there"

  • "Loved the food and atmosphere!! It was a little crowded because the restaurant is small and very popular so I would definitely recommend a reservation. The one complaint I had was that even though we had a reservation we still had to wait 10 minutes for our table. It was a very minor thing in the grand scheme and I would definitely be back. This was my second visit to this restaurant."

  • "I have always heard wonderful things about this restaurant, but have always been skeptical because I rarely find good pizza in winnipeg, however I was amazed by how amazing the food was. So flavourful and so delicious. Additionally, the service was amazing. I can honestly say I've never had a wait staff be so attentive and genuinely friendly. I would definitely go back, and will definitely tell my friends about this place."

  • "I am a frequent traveler and dine out several times a week. This place was one of the best I have been to yet. The staff made the night a memorable one. Katie, Alana, and April (Manager, Bartender, Server) were so personable and provided exceptional service, I will be coming back again tomorrow night! The Food is amazing! If you go, you have to get the Chocolate Cake with Olive Oil drizzled on top!"

  • "I had made reservations though open table for 2 people and was disappointed when the restaurant called me back to let me know that there were no more tables available and that we would be seated at the pizza counter. I was actually pleasantly surprised at the counter experience and would definitely recommend it for two people. The feel is a little more intimate and made it for a wonderful, authentic experience - the warmth of the wood burning fire oven was also quite nice! The featured appetizer was exquisite, consisting of seared scallops and cheese ravioli on a bed of steamed kale. We shared the Lucia pizza which was a great combination of savory and sweet. The service was very friendly and timed perfectly."

  • "Found the pizza very good. Salad okay .... Not that fresh ( some brown lettuce ) and dressing so so on the mixed green salad. Service good"

  • "It was a weekend evening. The restaurant was energetic and had an upbeat atmosphere. Unfortunately they only serve wine and beer and I had been craving a Bloody Mary/Ceasar to start me off. We ordered calamari which were spicy and lightly battered and very tasty. The brussel sprouts were okay, the beet salad was a hit and the charcuterie was fine. We all ordered pizza and it too was fine. All in all, nothing to complain about, however nothing to write home about either."

  • "My husband and I celebrated our 18th anniversary at Pizzeria Gusto. We had never been there before and found it very enjoyable. Our server was knowledgeable, pleasant and did a great job of suggestions. We will be back."

  • "My wife and I arrived 10 minutes early for our 7:45pm reservation and were told that our place wasn't ready yet. Another couple walked in 5 minutes afterwards & started to have a conversation with the hostess and other servers. We were told that it would be 5-10 minutes until our place at the bar would be ready. She offered us a place at a table to have a drink while waiting. We had a drink and saw the couple who came in after us quickly seated at the bar and served their dinner. 5-10 minutes turned to 45 minutes before we were allowed to sit at the bar, which was 10 minutes after the area was cleared and set. Terrible experience. If you've been to Gusto you know locals rule... If not, good luck."

  • "We spent our valentines dinner here. We had Amazing time but as we enjoy a place with a great wine list the prices pizzareia gustos were sort of out of hand. 90 dollar for 2 pizzas and a bottle of wine is ridiculous! Would love to frequent this spot but not for those prices. There are to many hip cool spots in the village and on corydon to compete.even a few more reasonable prices on the wine menu would entice me to come back because the staff was great and the food was amazing. I recommend going even if for one time only"

  • "Travelling all over the world, I'd have to say Gusto has the closest thing to eating pizza on the Amalfi coast It would be difficult to choose anything in particular. The salads are perfectly dressed, the pizzas are fired perfectly, and the seat at the oven is perfect on a cold winter day. One drawback is the appetizers. While flavour is present, some portions are undersized for the value, especially the bruschetta."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Pizzeria Gusto is one of our favourite restaurants. It is a vibrant place to dine and the food is consistently topnotch. We're in a rut and always share the Gusto salad and the Lucia pizza. The Americano coffee is perfect (and we're fussy.) if you want dessert, try the chocolate torte with sea salt. Wow!!! This is not a quiet restaurant but the atmosphere is vibrant and it's a fun place to be. The serving staff are efficient and friendly. Many have been at Gusto for several years."

  • "We had an amazing server named Suzy. She went out of her way to make us comfortable and well taken care of. She handled a small difficulty we had with professional, style, and generosity. We went for a romantic early St. Valentine's Dinner on a Tuesday but were disappointed that it was deafeningly loud (from the chatter of a full restaurant). I'm sure you've investigated this, but perhaps sound baffles in the high ceiling would help. My date and I could scarcely hear ourselves think."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "The food is fantastic and the service is great. However, I was cold the whole time! Our reservation was for 5:30 and we arrived early and had to stand outside in -25 until 5:30. Then we were seated beside the window. So since I was frozen from waiting outside, I had to wear my jacket while eating next to the drafty window. Oh, and my pizza was cold within a few minutes of getting it because the window was cold and drafty. I would recommend if you make your reservation for the first dinner spot (5:30), then don't come early because they'll make you stand out in the cold. And if you can get a seat away from the window, even better."

  • "My biggest problem is with the noise level. When you have to raise your voice to be heard by a person seated two feet away it's a little loud. (I don't have hearing problems!). When there are large groups in the restaurant, which is frequent, the noise level is way over the top. Some chatter is good -- I like a bistro feel -- but you might want to invest in some ceiling sound baffles to cut the noise a few decibels. Your prices are not cheap so the experience should be a good one. It's a good restaurant, but its major appeal for us is that it's close by. I wouldn't go if it was across town. Thanks"

  • "A full restaurant is a good restaurant Creative features, delicious classic stone fired pizzas and great service...what more could you want? If you have the pleasure of being served by Nate you are lucky but I'm sure most of the staff will match his level of attentiveness and genuine, knowledagable service. There are few dining options in Winnipeg that compare to the quality of service and food provided at Pizzaria Gusto. Well done."

  • "Greeted promptly, served quickly, server was exceptionally knowledgable and provided great recommendations. Food was fresh, warm and delicious. Would appreciate a greater liquor menu (understand they are limited by their license) and definitely need to add a cappucino machine. Going during the week certainly affords you greater table selection and no wait. I've never had a bad experience. See you again soon."

  • "Been there many times having tried the pizzas pasta appetizers specials and always a different bottle of wine. Always enjoy the atmosphere and watching the pizzas. Warm surroundings with nice accents especially enjoy the shelves with clutter of food and items and the different bikes on top. Tirimasu is perfect and classic especially with espresso. It's a little taste of Italy in a cold Canadian city. Can't wait to go back again. I always recommend this restaurant to everybody who asks for a great unique place to eat out."

  • "I dined with a friend and we both really enjoyed our pizzas. our server was also very friendly, and was helpful with real suggestions since we pad not been there before (unlike many servers who do not seem to know much about the menu). We dined early and would have stayed longer to enjoy each others company and dessert, but eventually the restaurant got very loud, too loud to talk. We ended up calling it a night."
