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.

I specifically requested a table and when I arrived was told that a table wasn't available even though there were only 3 occupied tables. We were told to eat at the bar even though I saw multiple empty places that weren't set for a reservation. I discussed with my dinner partner whether we should stay or not, and luckily someone was able to seat us at a table after many minutes of no service.

It was just very loud in the restaurant. Nice open space, but with so many people as well as loud music, it was hard to hear friends.

It was my first time there and I absolutely loved it. We went for date night and we’re both very happy with the experience. We had The Don and The Ryall pizzas and were both extremely satisfied. Will definitely go back!

First time there. I took my sister for her birthday. We shared the Cesar salad. Very tasty. We stuck to sharing appetizers. The stuffed calamari was delicious although I think they should have had one more piece. Very different preparation unlike anything I've had. We also had the meatballs. Nothing special. I would go again. Next time I will have the pizza.

Had a great time again at Pizzaria Gusto. This time it was for my wife's birthday. It was out 5th time here and we invited another couple to join us as they had never been here and had heard about us telling them how great it was. You did not disappoint !! Our service was fantastic. Just the right amount of attention. No hovering and never had to look for him. The food of course was amazing as usual. We will definitely be back again and pretty sure there are two new fans as the couple we brought couldn't stop talking about what a great time they had.

Overall, really great. Very accommodating. Sometimes though we had to ask to order drinks which is why they didn't receive 5 stars. Also a tad on the pricy side, but there menu is online so it's no surprise if you do your research.

This was our first experience dining at Pizzeria Gusto. We recently returned from a trip to Europe, including Italy, and we were delighted to find such a great variety of the same foods we enjoyed there! The pizzas were a perfect size- we tried 4 different ones, and they were all outstanding. My husband tried the cioppino, and found the broth to be very flavourful. The bruschetta was delicious, as was the caprese salad, which we all shared. Our server was terrific, and really added to the overall experience. Our only complaint would be the noise level, although we were able to talk to each other.
Thanks! We’ll be back!

The service wasn't great. The server did a table check once we were more then half way done our meals. She was more concerned about talking to an other employee then checking on the table.

Excellent restaurant! Definitely recommend it for couples who want to have a special "escape of routines". The pizzas are excellent, simple and not complicated. Very different from what I had before.
We had a reservation for standard seats, but at first we were told to sit at the counter (good though). But they changed our seat as per our request. The service is outstanding! Very polite and always available!
Overall, one of the best! I go there again!

Located in the suburbs of Winnipeg. Friendly staff, speedy service. High quality and ‘honest’ food. Pizzas were very tasty thanks to wood burning pizza oven. Wine and drinks reasonably priced. Highly recommended

Everything was top notch! The server was attentive and timely and took care of us and all the little details as well! The food was incredible and the wine selection was stellar. The atmosphere was welcoming yet trendy. The openness created a nice vibe of the place and to see the bar and pizza stone oven, yet was still intimate and cozy. This is going to be a new fav in our "going out" places to eat.

Looks great but very noisy and dimly lit. My wife ordered the rustica pizza. She was extremely disappointed - a very few mushrooms hidden by the arugula. It amounted to no more than pizza crust with greens. Can you call it pizza if there is no mozzarella cheese? Waiter took it back and they put some cold buffalo mozzarella on top. You would think they could do more. We won't be back.

Gustos became my absolute favorite dining location about four years ago. I find excuses to visit them for random treats, business dinners, personal events and even my birthday this past week.

They've done an incredible renovation the past spring/summer and have likely doubled their capacity while creating a dynamic and gorgeous atmosphere. It retains the feeling of privacy at your table, and the serving staff are second to none for courtesy, attentiveness, humor and creativity. Speaks directly to the dynamic culture ownership and management have developed here.

If you are considering Gustos, please succumb to the lure and give them a try. I promise you will be receive more than you expect the moment you walk in the door.
