    I’ve always heard that this established restaurant was good. Good old fashion Italian food with the feeling of Italy. The service was Exceptional. The 5 of us were treated so sweet & personally favored. It was a very special occasion for My Husband & I. They gave us a gift of service which started our lives with such joy & favor. We All look forward to coming back. Thank you Basha for your hospitality. It felt like home.

    Recommended by my sister who frequents San Francisco and often defaults to this restaurant. We are rarely in the area and were most delighted to experience the delicious food. A bit on the pricy side but worth the treat. We were seated immediately at a table for two, ordered and served very fast. Normally we would hang around and just enjoy the food and ambience but we were in a hurry so having things happen quickly fit our current desire. Next time, and there will be a next time we’ll sample the desert and linger. Thanks for a great experience.

    Recently I dined at Buon Gusto after an absence of 20+ years. I used to work nearby and ate there frequently, but moved away. I was delighted to find that the food is still superb. The filet of sole was perfectly cooked and delicious. Service was attentive and friendly as of old. I returned with a friend a few days later and had the memorable Veal Scaloppini. Caesar salad is always a must. I plan to return regularly to this old favorite of mine.

    Main courses were wonderful. Wine choices excellent. Tirimesu desert could use help from my mother-in- law. More coffee? Or chocolate? Or both? Something.

    The food was very good. I hade the filet mignon, and it was cooked as requested. . I especially liked the polenta. Easy to book even on Valentines Day. They were very busy with just 3 waitstaff and a consistent turn-over of tables, but still managed to provide efficient, professional and great service. It was also nice to see that they did not hike up the price or created some fixed 9-course meal with an exorbitant price tag just because it was Valentines Day. I’ll definitely return.
