About Pizzeria Gusto

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 aroma"s, sight's 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 "Bellisimo"!

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.

Best pizza in winnnipeg hands down! And the pizza cooks are great to interact with if you sit at the bar in front of The pizza oven.

This was our first time at Pizzeria Gusto and the food was great! We found it a bit pricey for the portion you received! I wouldn’t make this a regular place to dine as it’s just a bit too expensive but I would go back for a special occasion!

Based on all the reviews we read about this restaurant and the word of mouth comments we received, we were excited to be coming there for our daughter's 26th Birthday-no one bothered to acknowledge this, once we arrived even though it was asked for by Open Table when I booked the reservation.
As new comers to Winnipeg this was our first visit to this spot. We were a bit late for our 6 PM reservation and the restaurant was not busy on this Tuesday night. After we asked to be moved from our initial table where we were seated (which consisted of 2 chairs on one side of the table, and a bench sofa on the opposite side, which made my wife and I feel like we were sinking into an old couch), we were moved to a more desirable table with 4 chairs.
We were served warm water and then given a number of different menu's. It was only after we placed our appetizer order that we discovered one of the menus actually was a "special menu". This might have been something the waiter should have brought to our attention when we were seated along with Welcome! Is this your first time to Pizzeria Gusto?
Also, I have no issues with Tatoo's but servers don't need to show them off. We soon understood the MO of this spot...you are NOT an Italian restaurant.... the clients, the music playing and employees all demonstrated you cater to a yuppy, trendy clientele who have lots of disposable income! Needless to say, after ordering 3 appetizers, 4 main meals (consisting of 2 pizza's-which were good, 1 pasta-rigatoni which was disappointing and tasted like it had sand in it-turned out to be bread crumbs, and your Pork Special-which was dry) no drinks, no wine, no desserts, no coffee or tea, and spending over two hundred dollars, we concluded this was a bit rich for us for the experience we had and likely won't be back. Our motto is you try everything once. This was our once and unfortunately disappointing.
Good place if you have the money and would like some good pizza, but that's about all!

Dont go if you are counting on getting gluten free pizza!!!
Went to Pizzeria gusto this week for a get together with friends- hadn't been there since I was diagnosed with severe gluten allergy . Looked beforehand online at the menu - saw that gluten free pizza dough was available so I made a reservation. Was so excited to go back! When I ordered, the waitress told me which gluten free pizza options were available - so I ordered a pizza. The waitress came back and said that the kitchen could not cook my pizza on a separate pan because the restaurant was too busy. I had the grilled Caesar salad with shrimp which was VERY good but wasn't enough to be a satisfying dinner. I feel that Pizzeria Gusto should not have a gluten free pizza option on their menu if they cannot accommodate a pizza order from people with gluten allergies.

Good value lunch menu.
Pizza crust tough and tasteless. Disappointing.
Fresh parmesan added to pizzas at the table was grated from a block of cheese held in the server's bare hand. Unhygienic!

Great Cesar’s salad.
Excellent stone oven pizza (Margarita) and you can sit at the bar in front of the open oven which on a cold winter’s night is amazing. The service was attentive yet not rushed nor intrusive. The renovations have resulted in a beautifully open yet warm and cosy space.
It was not my first time and won’t be my last time.

Server was good, food was amazing! They have great gluten free and vegan options. My only large complaint would be that the music was incredibly loud. It wouldn't be that big of a deal for maybe a group of 2 but being in a group of 6 the conversations were very challenging! I just found the music to be way, way too loud and it kind of ruined the ambiance a bit.

My mom ordered a cocktail and it tasted like a combination of mouthwash and perfume. The Caesar salad dressing was too vinegary. Prices are a little high in my opinion but at the same time I understand that quality ingredients don’t come cheap. Pizzas were cooked well. Decor was a beautiful. Server was very friendly!
