"The food was delicious , the restaurant is lovely with white tablecloth on tables and wallpaper faux marble on walls tastefully done. We felt very welcomed by the Maitre'd, Marcelo, who greeted us with a warm big smile and led us to our table.
We ate linguini with seafood in a wine sauce, and linguine with salmon in a tomato sauce . The pasta was homemade and so delicious...tasty and abundant without being so much one can't eat it all.
The service was polite and efficient and we were not rushed to pay or leave as we lingered after dinner.
We ordered Ricotta Cheesecake which was so good but so small a piece that I burst out laughing since my daughter and I usually split the slice, and this slice was too small to slice or share.
I am looking forward to returning soon but I will not order the Ricotta cheesecake."

"Cafe Buon Gusto has been around for quite a while. It's great sitting outdoors in warm weather but also nice to sit indoors at other times. Food is always fresh. Great place to meet friends and catch up."

"A pleasant unassuming restaurant serving simple straight forward Italian fare. The pasta, pizza and panini worked for a good lunch as we had walked the area for a couple of hours."

"My son recommended this restaurant...he attends college in the area. We were looking for good food and a comfortable setting. We were more than satisfied on both counts. We all enjoyed our meals, they were prepared exceptionally well, the service was kind and the setting was comfortable. We will return."

"Nice Brooklyn Italian food. BeBe, the assistant waiter was outstanding and service by him and our waiter was well done. BeBe needs to be recognized for always being there to ensure all needs, wants and desires were fulfilled - water was constantly refilled and napkins ensured to be there. Wonderful."

"Very good meal. Service was able to make substitution to suit the vegetarian diet of my guest as well as my own gluten free diet. Very tasteful but not super fancy, they skipped some of the upscale dining formalities."
