Amazing food and service.
The service was AWFUL! We had to wait forever to get our food, our waitress only came by our table once to bring refills and ask how we were, and after telling her we were done we then had to wait for half an hour for her to bring by boxes and then the bill. She wasn't swamped or helping other tables either, but would just stand at the front and chat to the bartender or the other waitstaff instead of taking care of her customers. Horrible service aside, Gusto North also did not socially distance the tables and had us seated on a bench right next to another group of people. They were also definitely over 50% capacity the same day new health orders came into effect stating they need to "not exceed 50% of
the usual capacity" . You would think a place that prides itself on offering a high-class dining experience would put in the effort to do that, but clearly the staff and owners don't care about their customers experience or safety.
It's a shame too because the food was really really good!
We have had dinner at Gusto North five times now. The experience has always been great.
It is a very loud space and hard to hear people across the table. The food was just okay. The food at the Academy location is much better as is the ambience. The salad I ordered was nothing special and my pizza was missing toppings and looked nothing like the picture on the online menu.
Totally enjoyed our evening. The food was great and service was equally great. Love the vibe of the new place!!! Will definitely be back.
1st time at Gusto North. Not enough signage to help you find the place. However... Once there... Service was excellent. Very friendly. Food was good but not outstanding. Good experience over all and will go again
Our favourite place to dine before a Jets game. Excellent wood fired pizzas and pastas. We have always had great service!
It was my husband’s birthday we went there for dinner before a Jets game.
The best time - food was amazing. Server was so nice and accommodating. Drinks were phenomenal and solid pours.
Omg this place was so good!! The fungi pizza was delicious but the Ragu was to die for! Lovely helpful service and dimly lit cozy setting. Can't wait to go back! Hint make a reservation if going before Jets game. We had to wait till after the game because we didn't
Good food , good service, very noisy , a little overpriced but good experience
Amazing atmosphere. Food was not amazing. Appetizers arrived and were barely warm.
First time dining at Gusto North. Very impressed with the employees, so friendly and understanding in making our dining experience exactly as we like. Simple menu, we started with the calamari which was tasty, nice presentation. The Margherita and 887 pizzas were delicious. Love the pizza crust! Drinks were good too. Food arrives very quickly. It’s a very stylish decor, nice vibe.
Two things that I didn’t like - tables are very close together and with COVID, we are accustomed to more distance in restaurants; also, we didn’t like that the water glasses were filled and sitting prior to our arrival. I understand being efficient, however I don’t like any drinks which are unattended. Our server was completely understanding when I pointed this out and fresh glasses and water arrived immediately.
Overall, a very nice evening out with my wife.
I took an out of town co-worker 11/24 and we really enjoyed it! The food was great, and the service staff was excellent (attentive, but did not break up our conversation). The place was packed and I was glad to have made a reservation in advance. Forming more and more good memories at this place, will definitely be going back for my future personal / business meetings.
We had a number of dishes. Love them all except for one of the salads that we thought was OK
The pizza’s and service are always consistent and awesome! The only negative is it is hard for 80 year olds to see the food and menu with your evening lighting. That being said, I enjoy the candles and ambiance.
Gusto North is my fave restaurant in Winnipeg. The employees are all amazing and so friendly. The food is delicious, and the vibe is amazing. Perfect for date night, ladies nights or before a jets game.
Sadly, was not what I was looing for the pizza was burn and the pieces of cheese on the top, was no melt, was COLD
Related with the food was noot a good experience, was not what we expected, we went there as a recomendation of a friend , but I think we are not going back...
Awesome food, energetic atmosphere before the game!
we had the cavolo salad to start, followed by the Ragu pasta. Both were outstanding!
Our server was attentive and helped guide us to the right wine based on both our preferences.
Fabulous food, great attentive service. But a bit too loud. Difficult to have a conversation. Might not be great for a first date.
The food and service, as always, was fantastic, and we really enjoyed the comfortable outdoor patio seating with the heaters. I would only suggest that the table be checked for wobbliness. Otherwise, a perfect experience!
Great service great atmosphere and really great food
Outdoor patio is great with the heaters in the fall weather
Waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable
Understand pre-game is going to be busy but the outright sour, condescending look my wife received from the waitress when we asked (after waiting some time) to have our empty glasses filled was another level. I want this place to succeed. Our downtown needs it. So sharing for the purpose of seeing improvement.
Great ambiance. Fun location. Outstanding service and food.
We had a party of 6 and all commented at the time and again this morning the top notch meal we had (various entrees). The wine selection was excellent and we managed to find a selection that was enjoyed by those partaking. Our server (Kaelee - sp?) recalled a former favourite pizza of mine no longer on the menu and asked the kitchen to prepare it - this is the type of care and attention that is always appreciated and rare to find. The restaurant was full and the energy was boisterous - the acoustics can be a challenge when trying to communicate with background noise - but an overall very enjoyable experience. We will be back!
We often go to pizzeria gusto and we’re quite surprised as to how different the pizza was. It wasn’t as crisp a dough, more soggy in middle. Short rib pasta was very under seasoned.
Very loud in restaurant as well.
Service was not great. Took a long time to get our drinks, they couldn’t figure out the bill for quite long considering it was only four of us. Food was good
Great service and food but very noisy.
We enjoyed exceptional food and service for our party of 6! The Ragu and pizzas were awesome! Our server Sydney was friendly and attentive. The restaurant has modern decor and great ambience. The kitchen staff work deligently to prepare delicious and high quality meals from scratch. I highly recommend Gusto North!
Enjoyed the food and atmosphere
Food was of good quality, just not for me. The charcuterie board (well, what essentially was a charcuterie board) was not very good, the pasta was of high quality, but like I said, just not for me. The pizza was good, but so is domino's.
Had a great dinner. The noise level in the restaurant was too loud. You could talk to the people across the tsble
Food and service were excellent, at no fault of the restaurant unfortunately there was really loud not great for dining listing in the market which really took away for the experience and ambiance of the restaurant.
Our group collectively said we would Visit pizzeria Gusto versus gusto North as the ambiance can be controlled being a standalone restaurant.
For what you pay for fine Italian food,the portion size is way too small
My son and I were not impressed.
Awesome food and great service!!!
Everything was great!
Food and service were both fantastic.
Food and ambience was great but overall the restaurant is too noisy to enjoy each other’s company - not energetic (as the option offered on your survey) but annoying. Could not hear people talking at our table. Will not be back with more than 2-3 people.
