Buon Gusto is among my favorite local restaurants. It feels like a classic neighborhood Italian holdover from a different time, and I mean that in the most complimentary sense possible. I love that it feels so genuine, and the food happens to be wonderful as well.
The one thing that has really dropped its charm several points in the last few years (and has resulted in fewer visits by our family) is the inexplicably poor decision to mount a giant television over the otherwise magical and romantic dining room.
Such a place cannot simultaneously be both a classic enchanting dining destination, as well as a garish, cheap sports bar. It's absolutely awful when they turn this thing on and force us to share our relaxed and romantic meal with such a dissonant element as televised sports.
Please, leave the sports bar nonsense to Red Robin and Hooters, and just return to what has made Buon Gusto great, the food, the service, and THE ROMANTIC ATMOSPHERE!
