We love Caffe Buon Gusto! The food is wonderful and the staff makes you feel welcome. We missed seeing Nando last night, but we will be back soon…. love, “Jodi from Miami”
Best pasta in NYC! Service was so friendly and food came out very fast
this hole in the wall italian restaurant is great if you’re looking for good food, quality service at a fair price. the only thing is that the tables and chairs could use some updating
Great food, service, location. We really enjoyed our meal. We would def come back.
Good food at reasonable prices
The limoncello ravioli was amazing
Fabulist dining experience! We are outside and it was intimate, food was delicious and the staff was so kind!
Such an amazing meal. I brought my dog and we ate outside with my family. The staff was incredible and so so nice to the dog (they even brought chicken for her!)… meanwhile, we had a delicious meal — the daily specials were the best, as was the chicken Marsala. The salads werent anything special but everything else was 11 out of 10. Will definitely go back!!
Very good food selection. We liked the service too.
Great cute cafe, very small but awesome service and awesome food.
Very loud and busy. The table next to us didn't have their vaccines checked. Staff not masked. Crowded tables. Felt very unsafe. Will not go back.
We had a delicious meal and the service was outstanding!! We will be back!
The pasta was amazing!
The staff at this restaurant could not possibly be any more welcoming! They greeted us warmly and showed us to our table, which was inside their very comfortably heated outdoor dining area. The food was delicious as always— their seafood linguine in white sauce is very flavorful and delicious, and my only regret is that I didn’t have a bigger stomach to be able to eat every last bite. And the kindest gesture by far was the person I think is the owner spontaneously came out of the restaurant carrying a plate of deliciously prepared chicken to offer to my dog. Needless to say, the dog keeps asking when we can go back to Caffe Buon Gusto! Such a great neighborhood gem for no-frills, friendly solid Italian dining.
Service was terrible. It should not take 90 minutes to get an enteee. People who came in after us got their food before.
Have been here several times before the pandemic and since they "reopened" and tonight things just seemed off. While the food was good the wait staff seemed off. We asked for a specific bottle of wine and when he came back he brought a different bottle because they were out of the one we asked for. We ended up ordering something different. They brought the wrong appetizer even though we actually corrected him when he took the order. Lastly, we tried ordering a dessert and they were out of 2 of the 3 items we were choosing from. Hopefully this is a one off since the food is good but the price should come with a better experience.
The food was excellent and the service was very good. Thank you!
Always a fantastic meal when we come here, great service, delicious food
Food delicious and service was outstanding. Very accommodating.
This place is easily one of my favorite Italian spots in the city. The food is delicious (I recommend their pesto sauce and if they have it on the specials, the ravioli with limoncello and truffle cream). Also the service is the best! I believe he is the manager, but he waited on my table last night and was so sweet and accommodating! Highly recommend!!!!!! (They also surprised my mom for her birthday with tiramisu!!!)
food was ok, a glass of wine $16, overall not bad but since so many choices I will try another Italian restaraunt next time
Keep up the great work!! Hope to return soon. Food and service was superb 👌
Good, gr3at even!
Cafe Buon Gusto is the best. Excellent food and service. Thank you Nando!!
Food and Service was good.
Noise lever unbearable due to rowdy group next table.
I was very disappointed and somewhat concerned that we were not asked to show our vaccination cards. In hindsight, we should have left at that point.
Neighborhood gem! Consistently excellent food, with many choices if you want to change it up. Vodka sauce is the best ever!
Outside seating is EXTREMELY close....didn't feel safe. Also service not great. We probably won't be going back any time soon.
Great food, service was superb! Thank you!
Great food. Cute outdoor set up and great service. They didn’t rush us out on a Saturday night.
Food came out way too fast. We had a drink with appetizers and before we could finish our apps the main dish came out. They didn’t want to take it back bc it was pasta dishes. Will not go back because it was not a evening out. It was more like a rushed dinner.
Delicious Italian food served in a comfortable setting with a fun waiter . And very good wine too .
Had a lovely delicious meal. We sat in the backyard which was wonderful.
authentic italian food ,great service, and a nice ambience
Really great authentic service. Felt like the waitstaff cared about us, and would help us. Felt they genuinely valued the food they served. the food is good, not great.
The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. The staff went above and beyond, and treated all diners in the same manner. Fantastic experience!
Favorite neighborhood spot for a great pasta meal and cozy vibes. Love coming here
There was a sign in the bathroom to not flush the toilet paper so there was just toilet paper all over the floor and a few centimeters of water covering the ground. Food was great though. Would go again but not go to the bathroom.
