I took my friend here for
I took my friend here for her birthday - she loved it! The food was very good and the service was great - I had forgotten my reading glasses and the restaurant lent me a pair so I could see the menu. The food is excellent and the menu is varied - wine is a little pricey at $10 a glass for all types of wine. Hhowever, it was a lovely evening.

What a nice find! Wait staff great, owner- involved. Loved the multiple house made pastas. Garden in back will be nice when warmer. Every nook and cranny was filled w tables. Had a Sunday night 1/2 price wine special. Overall great food and evening

Love this place!
We love this place. The food is delicious and affordable for Italian food. The dining room is very pretty with a cute front patio and a lovely back garden!

Great Summer Outdoor Dining
Had a delicious dinner in their garden out back - service was good and the ambiance was lovely. Have been here before but never in the garden - will definitely return on warm summer nights!

Get off the avenue for a wonderful neighborhood Italian that hits all the marks. And half price wine bottles Sunday-Tuesday can't be beat. Homemade pastas, fresh and tasty entrees, friendly but not bothersome service. Perfect.

Good neighborhood restaurant
Small friendly convenient reasonably priced neighbor restaurant . Large portions on lunch specials. More food than one would expect.

A Great Neighborhood dining spot
I definitely plan to return to Caffe Buon Gusto. It has a comfortable, quiet, relaxing environment. What a terrific neighborhood find.
Go early,as the place gets busy about 7:30-8 PM, even during weekdays.
All the dishes we ordered, from appetizer to main course, were very good. There is also a Sunday, Monday, Tuesday night wine bottle special of 50% off.

Best pesto in the city
I've been coming here for 20 years. I cannot resist the pesto. Try it!

Wonderful neighborhood spot!
We've been going to Caffe Buon Gusto for years and it never disappoints! Delicious food and wonderful service. The half price wine special Sunday-Tuesday is a great deal as well.

Great Pasta Plus
Situated on a sidestreet, Caffe Buon Gusto easily matches the quality of more expensive places on the avenues in a warm, inviting place. The staff are wonderful - friendly and helpful without being intrusive. This is not a fancy place -- it reminds me of restaurants in Florence. The small size and popularity make it noisy (although if you want to sit on the porch, where there are only two tables, it quieter. The linguine paglia e fieno with shrimp is awesome, as is the black pasta with ribbons of calimari. The non-pasta dishes are also quite good. We plan to visit weekly until we have tried everything on the menu.

What a deal!!
I really love this place. The food was fantastic, and definitely affordable. The ambiance is great and the owner is so friendly to everyone. Also, every Monday and Wednesday they have half price wine bottles!! I would recommend this to anyone who likes good, authentic Italian food and great service!

A neighborhood find
A perfect little spot for an excellent meal with white tablecloths and friendly service. Freshly baked bread, and
a good selection of food choices, from focaccia sandwhiches to delicious pastas, and hard to resist desserts.

Same as it always is
Exceptional food, wonderful service. We have been going to this restaurant for many years.
It is the best Italian restaurant on the UES.

Found this late last-minute but could still make a reservation.
The menu is very extensive and every item we ordered was purely delicious! Price is very reasonable too. Very chill place for the upper east side. Definitely coming back!

Large Portions, Mediocre Service
Delicious food but erratic service. My husband sent his coffe drink back at the end of the meal because it was lukewarm. The waitress tried to explain that it was because of the whip cream. It had been sitting for pickup for a long time and we actually had decided they had forgotten it when it finally showed up. Go for the food but be sure to bring your patience.

Consistently great food, served by consistently friendly and helpful people. The perfect go-to Italian restaurant. Reminds me of the little local restaurants in Florence.

A hidden gem
Located on a side street you might miss this place but it's worth seeking out for the great food and wonderful service.

Our favorite neighborhood Italian restaurant. Fresh pasta that cannot be beat, excellent sauces and ingredients, all served by incredibly warm staff in a homey environment. Walk through the front door into Italy.

We've been going to Caffe Buon Gusto for years and it never disappoints! The food and service are wonderful and half price wine at the beginning of the week is a steal. We now go there with our baby daughter and they are always accommodating. Perfect neighborhood place!
