Brunch with Friends
Attended a birthday celebration with a group of friends. Brunch was wonderful! The menu was extensive, great service and the food was creatively displayed and very tasty. Great neighborhood restaurant and I would recommend it to others.

Had a nice lunch here with a business colleague. We both had pasta and enjoyed our choices. Good food and good service. I'll be back.

Nice pre-race dinner spot
We chose the cafe because it wasn't far from the Brooklyn Half packet pickup and took reservations. The food was nice and the ambience a bit noisy. Our waiter had shaky English skills but was attentive and our meals arrived promptly from the kitchen. The menu was not too ambitious and everyone was happy with their choices.

First time to Brooklyn Heights.
First time to Brooklyn Heights. Was very impressed and offered such a great alternative to the Manhattan restaurant scene. Quiet, on a fun street, great wine list - had the barolo, and within blocks of the shore walkway providing an outsttanding view of the NYC Skyline and Statue of Liberty. This restaurant had authentic italian food and staff, superb service, great ambiance should be a must on anyone's list when visiting NYC. Very convenient to get to - steps off the subway exit/entrance on the yellow line manhattan to brooklyn train.

The food is good quality,
The food is good quality, and the prices are reasonable. No fighting for a table, which is nice - so many restaurants now will not take reservations, insist on being paid in cash, etc. etc. When the owner found out it was our anniversary he brought us each a complimentary glass of wine. I order a complete dinner, and subsituted sea bass for salmon without any hassle. Definitely will go back.

Delicious Lunch, Great Service
Great experience all around. When we arrived for lunch, the restaurant was busy with several large groups. I was concerned this would make service slow for us, but no worries -- our food arrived promptly and someone was immediately available to answer our every question. Staff clearly wanted us to enjoy our meal -- and we did. Delicious traditional Italian food at a reasonable price. So much food that I took part of mine home for lunch the next day. We'll be back!

Great for lunch
Took a group of 6 here to celebrate a coworkers birthday. Everyone liked their meals and we had quite a variety from seafood to pasta. Some of them are picky so that is no easy feat. They have a great prix fixe option which a couple of us chose. Given that Chipotle can run $12-$15 for essentially junk food spending a little more at a formal sit down restaurant with great service is well worth it to me.

Nice Variety and Reasonably Priced
Caffe Buon Gusto offers a generous variety of fresh pastas, salads, and main courses that are satisfying and conforting without being expensive. The restaurant is bright and pleasant. Diners are greeted cheerfully upon arrival and are cared for warmly throughout the meal, with frequent yet unobtrusive attention paid by the friendly and professional staff to refilling water glasses and clearing dishes. A prompt replacement of the knife and fork is made once they are used for the first course -- one sign of a good restaurant. If you're looking for a tasty yet reasonably priced sit-down meal in Brooklyn Heights, this is the place to go.
