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.

The food was delicious and being celiac the gluten free crust option was amazing - the first time I have had a really good pizza in 10 years. The waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable. The ambiance was great and an overall great first time. I will definitely be back.

Between Rich, Jesse, Suzy and our bartender/server our anniversary dinner was beyond amazing. We always feel like family when we come in and it truly is a one of a kind restaurant in Winnipeg. Thank you PG for going above and beyond for us on Saturday we appreciate it so much!

Friendly, attentive servers.
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.

Excellent 95% all over. Only complaint is that the scallops in our main dish were greatly over powered by the rest of the dish. Other than that, wonderful.

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!

Our female server (Lauren) was excellent. She kept checking back to see if everything was ok. Had a lovely smile. A new dish (carbonera ) was excellent. The lamb and sausage dish was a bit dry and would not order it again. The flourless chocolate cake was excellent.

Tried this restaurant because my friend had heard great reviews about it. Our experience would not warrant a great review. The food took quite some time after we ordered to receive (well over 1/2 hr - 3/4 hr & we felt wasn't that busy). The waitress had told us the pizzas would be out of the oven shortly, which they were but when they hit our table they were lukewarm to cold. The waitress was not very attentive, did not come ask how things were, was not good about filling water etc. Finally we had to flag down another waitress to let her know we needed our pizzas warmed up, were asked if we wanted fresh and we said whatever was quicker because by that time was 7:30 and we wanted to eat. As the night wore on the noise level in restaurant became very apparent and was hard to hear each other talk. Overall we were not happy with our experience. Not to say could have been an off night and won't necessarily not go back but won't be rushing back anytime soon.

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.

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.
