About the restaurant
Please note: if your desired reservation time is not available, we hold lots of space for walk-ins.

We started Nonsuch to give back to our home, help grow our culture, and make Manitoba proud. We're proud to offer shareable plates with a focus on local ingredients as well as our award winning craft beer brewed in-house, just steps away from our dining room.

We make our beer. We make our food. But we founded Nonsuch to make your special moments. To appreciate your entire experience. From quiet, intimate gatherings to the grandest of celebrations, it's our honour to be in the heart of your moments.

So wonderful! Such a beautiful, classy restaurant and brewery. For years, Nonsuch has made some of the best beer in the city and that still rings true! Excellent selection, beautifully made beers. The service is kind, attentive, and smart. Our food was phenomenal! Smokey meatballs with parm and sour dough, trotter tagliatelle, and a chili crisp cucumber salad, all executed perfectly. All that and the space is just perfect to hang out in. Easily one of our favourite spots🥰

Back for a third visit and looking forward to the new revised menu. Old favourites still there, plus new additions that reflect different aspects of Italian cooking from different regions of Italy. This is a top flight restaurant serving exquisite cuisine. Dan (wine) and Ruslan ( wait staff ) were great. Everyone was so friendly. Ambience still the nicest in the city. Must try the beef tartare!

Four of us had dinner around 7:00 PM on June 27th. Two of our guests were out of town (Ontario). Our guests were so impressed with the ambiance of the restaurant and the surrounding property. (After dinner we visited with rusty the horse who was very friendly.) We had the prime rib and pickerel. I also started mushroom soup. These dishes were simply outstanding and delicious. Generous portions. I only wish baked potatoes were available. The service was extremely friendly and professional. Courses were served on a timely basis. Our table was nicely spaced away from other patrons. It was a great experience - thank you!

Great experience, over priced for some meals like steak and fries being 56$ is wild and no option for a kids steak so he had the 10oz. Waiter Andrew I think his name was amazing and made it a great experience

About the restaurant
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 aromas 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 "Bellissimo"!
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.
