Caffe Buon Gusto - UES
Deliciosa comida; verdaderamente italiana.
Got seated later than our reservation and food was good, but not mind blowing
Always love coming here. Great food and service.
Disapointed in service as we were rushed through dinner. I've been to Caffe Buon Gusto many times but never as busy and noisy as Friday night. WIll stick to weeknights moving forward hoping food, service and all around experience is better
I love this place! Great neighborhood feeling and yummy food
Great food and service. Loved the pasta!
This food was amazing and the service was so good and quick. Definitely will be back! Marcielo was also such a great server.
Cozy restaurants are lovely, but this is beyond cramped. Unpleasant.
Food was delicious! A bit pricey for add ons though (barely any chicken added) Waiters and host weren’t friendly at all. Food was too good to pass up though!
Great food, fast service and lovely ambiance for a romantic date!
Went for an early Valentines dinner to avoid the crowds and were happily surprised to see that they were offering 50% off the reserve wine bottles. The wine we chose was really great and came out to about $50. We made a reservation a couple days in advance so we were slightly annoyed to be the table that is basically in the doorway, but otherwise the ambiance was nice. We loved our waiter who began serving us at the start of the meal. He was so friendly and helpful ( and apparently has been there for 25 yrs!) but later on in the night it switched to a different waitress and with her we had to basically wave our arms for 20 minutes to get any sort of attention- which was especially annoying because it was busy when we got there, but only a few people were around when we left, so they weren't busy. The food was really delicious and if you don't get a special, the portions are large (we got the special tagliatelle pasta-truffle and mushrooms- was amazing but not big). Overall a good experience and we'd return, but we will definitely request a different table! (the door would basically open and close on my shoulder)
Good basic Italian fare in a homey neighborhood spot. Reliable and friendly.
The food was fabulous. We both ordered the gnocchi and it was to die for - so fluffy and pillowy. The service was good and we got quite the authentic vibe. The pricey were a little high so it’s probably a good place for a date night or something similar.
Staff was very rude and rushed us through the meal even though it was not busy. Food was okay but service was extremely lacking.
The noise was unbearable but the food was delicious.
Great hidden gem on the Upper East Side. The avenues get a ton of traffic and visibility, but the side streets get much less. My wife and I have made an effort to try out more side street places and we really enjoyed this one. It felt more like a neighborhood restaurant with a casual vibe and no pretension. The food was great and the service was excellent. It made for a nice change of pace. I would definitely recommend hitting up this place if you are a local!
Caffe Buon Gusto is a gem! Excellent food and ambience. My daughter recommended thus fine restaurant. Can't wait to come back to NYC to visit!
Food was phenomenal and vibes were amazing
Hidden neighborhood gem
Authentic and delicious food in a noisy, way-to-close for comfort environment.
It was my first time there. Pleasantly surprised. For a casual Italian meal with solidly good food, this place works. Not great for a date night as the volume is super loud and the tables are very close to one another. I would go back under the right conditions.
Best homemade pasta I have ever had. Definitely worth every cent and save room for the ricotta and pistachio cake it is to die for
Wonderful pasta dishes!!!
You might as well go to a bad diner to get this type of Italian food!! It was inedible. I ordered pasta Bolognese. It had virtual a teaspoon of sauce an over-cooked rigatoni which was basically meatless. We were seated tin a tight corner table from which there was no way out except to have both or neighboring tables get up while they moved the table. Forget a rest room attempt. I think this is probably the worst restaurant in NYC and that is going a long way.
Delicious as always but I do think my gnocchi was a bit undercooked. I have never experienced that here so I assume it was an isolated situation.
We went for NYE dinner. It was a great date night. Best vodka sauce ever.
Beyond incredible!!! My absolute favorite restaurant in NYC!!!
Possibly the best pasta I’ve ever had! Paired well with the wine our server recommended.
The food and staff are outstanding. I highly recommend if you want genuinely great italian food. The restaurant is tiny, which I enjoyed because it felt more intimate.
Small restaurant in an old townhouse with original details still visible. Food is a bad americanization of Italian dishes. Learned a lesson, never trust an "Italian" place that lists Alfredo sauce in its menu.
This is a neighborhood gem and as first time visitors we were so enchanted! The food was great but the service was really fabulous! Marcelo was so friendly and helpful and couldn’t have been nicer! Thankyou to Giovanni also (Maitre D/manager)!
We’ll be back!
Wonderful, thoughtful servers, good food and warm atmosphere. Delightful evening
Caffé Buon Gusto is my go-to Italian restaurant in NYC! It's cozy and charming, has great food and service, and the prices are reasonable.
We really appreciated the music. It was not too loud and was American songbook rather than Christmas music. We were able to easily talk to each other and hear each other. It was our 34 yr. wedding anniversary and they played "La vie en rose" which has a lot of meaning to us.
Pasta was great!
I have to say the food was great, very small place. Make sure you make a Reservation. Nice music and Atmosphere. This will be my new spot!
The BEST pesto gnocchi ever!!! The BEST tiramisu!!!!
Our favorite upper East side restaurant
The food was amazing but the restaurant is so small. The Brooklyn location is definitely better in terms of size and service. The UES location feels as if you’re being rushed out. We were barely at the restaurant for 30 mins but we still felt rushed the entire time. I believe there also may be a price difference between the Brooklyn and UES location.
