Welcome to Buon Gusto, where enjoying Good Food
with Great Wine is the Italian way of life.
Buon Gusto means ‘good taste’ in Italian.
We strive to bring you the ‘good taste’ of Italy in all aspects of
our restaurant. Located in the historic Victoria Hotel building in
St. George’s Square in Downtown Guelph, Buon Gusto is warm
and casual with exposed stone walls and a contemporary
Our wood-burning oven, made in Reggello, Tuscany is ‘il cuore’ (the heart) of Buon Gusto. We import molino caputo tipo 00 flour and San Marzano tomatoes from Italy, to make our pizzas in the traditional Neapolitan thin-crust style, hearth-baking them at 900 degrees Fahrenheit for just 90 seconds. Our menu also features pastas made from family recipes and small-plates of antipasti, perfect for sharing with family and friends.
We have a passion for keeping things simple…using high-quality, often locally sourced ingredients. Our full bar features local
craft beers, an extensive and reasonably priced old world wine selection, as well as top-shelf spirits & classic cocktails.
A note from the chef...Italian cooking follows the recipes and traditions of previous generations. Every Italian family has its own. I’m proud to bring you many of the dishes that I learned in my mother’s kitchen, using fresh and seasonal ingredients and preparing them with love and simplicity.
