About Pizzeria Gusto
Pizzeria Gusto is an extension of my dinner table, where friends, family and loved ones gather together to share conversation, laughter, food and wine. The aroma"s, sight's and sounds are a constant reminder of centuries old Italian traditions, which instantly welcome you to the family.
We believe that pizza is the perfect food. A blank canvas that has unlimited possibilities in both taste and texture. By using fresh local produce and authentic Italian ingredients your experience will surely have you saying "Bellisimo"!
Our wood burning oven comes from Reggelo, 20 km from Florence. The Valoriani oven is hand crafted by a family of artisans that has been perfecting their skills for 5 generations. Its domed brick roof and 650 degree temperature is the perfect vessel for creating the perfect pizza.

Incredibly overpriced. I paid $24 for a meatless pasta dish. There were only 3 pastas to choose from. My partner had pizza, I had the pasta, and 2 beers; the bill was $75. I'd get it if it were fine dining or if we had steak/ribs....but for 2 beers, pasta, and pizza...it's too much.

Don't order the gluten free pizza crust !!!! It is dry and the toppings slide right off. Tastes like frozen.

As usual the food quality was very good. A bit disappointed my favorite mushroom pizza was off the menu, however the new pizza I tried was good. One comment, the pizza for my husband was not very hot, usually the pizza is straight from the oven which makes the experience that much better. The service was as expected, very friendly and professional.

Great crust on the pizza...antipasto was ok as was the brussell sprouts. Pizza was priced as other high end pizzas in the city. Beverages and sides higher priced than average. I would go back for just the great pie!

Excellent food and great service. Was good when we went for noise. Our meal was lunch and given the openness of the restaurant, imagine it can be pretty noisy on busy nights. Still, innovative and creative foods.

Had a great time out on the patio at Gusto. Nate is an incredible server - polite, knowledgable, and made some excellent suggestions that helped me "wow" an important client. Thanks!

Everything was great. The pizza choices are very original and all very tasty.
No matter what day of the week, or the time of year, that I visit, the experience is fantastic. Brought my kids for the first time during this visit and they each said they fully understood why I love Gustos. Best pizza they've had and they loved the atmosphere. We'll be back, very soon...
I do not usually write reviews but this one was a must. The appetizers were expensive and not good. The brushetta was soggy and the calamari was supposed to be sauteed and was just steamed .... absolutely disgusting. Only one person ate it and that was the who suggested it and that was purely because he felt bad. Yuck! The pizza was good. The spaghetti tasted good but very small portion for the price ( If you did a lot of biking that day like we did it just wouldn't fill you up). I think the best bet is to opt out of the appetizers and just get an extra pizza. However, the biggest thing that bothers me is there is no value. Another example.... I paid 21 dollars for a 9 ounce glass of wine! That tasted... ok. If you have a lot of money and do not mind being scammed great. But for those working class, you could find better food to spend 200+ dollars on. I hate feeling ripped off. The case of the emperor's new clothes in my opinion. I tried Pizzeria Gusto three times and that was my last.
Great pizza...average Bruschetta
To start, the pizza was excellent. We had the Romesco and the Regino Eggeto pizza, both delicious. Our appetizer of Classic Bruschetta was fairly pedestrian(needed seasoning and bread was just a piece of rye). Servers were friendly, but not totally confident in their abilities to recall menu items. Overall the pizza was great, else was average.

Prices too high , we had to seat at bar not even could choose a table that were empty untill we left.

i was at a conference and wanted to expose my customers to the restaurant that is partly owned by one of our long term friends/ colleagues in the world of HIV. It was hard to communicate as it was loud. The food was nothing special, but we treated it like a tapas meal which was fun and gave us the opportunity to taste many different items on the menu. Unless I know someone that likes pizza I will not necessarily recommend the restaurant.

Disappointed for the first time. My favourite place to eat in Winnipeg - usually brilliant food and service. Both were mediocre on this visit. Calamari was rubbery & tasteless. Pizza overdone & dried out with tough crust as a result. Service was indifferent at best with a general feeling of being rushed along during the entire meal. This experience was definitely an exception - as noted, usually a fantastic dining experience. I expect more from PG

Amazing pizza and the service was top notch. Can't wait to go back!!
Great Selection of Pizza
Service was excellent and has a nice cozy atmosphere. Crust was exceptional.
Had lunch on Monday, May 5th to celebrate our wedding anniversary (could not get reservations on a Monday evening? Who knew?) and thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our dining experience. We started with calamari that was absolutely perfect. Followed that with a couple of pizzas that caught our eye (Lucia and Waterloo) and were not disappointed. We really enjoyed the fusion of flavours that their chef comes up with. Even had Aperol Spritz to drink, which you generally don't find... anywhere really. It's even hard to find Aperol at the LC as it's not exactly popular. Nice European touch that we appreciated.
Luv them brussels sprouts!
delicious food! crazy about the brussels sprouts and the mushroom risotto
Another fine evening
My wife and I came for a date night as we love the food and atmosphere. The patio was not yet open so we dined at the pizza bar. With only two people this is still a fine experience.
Had friends join us, their first visit. Both really enjoyed their pizzas. My husband really enjoyed the pasta dish. Great night all around.
My favourite restaurant.
This restaurant is my favorite, and I have been to many. The food is great, original and innovative - never trendy. The people are always friendly and welcoming, service is great and I always feel comfortable. Perfect combination of authentic food with an upbeat atmosphere.
Great Birthdy Dinner
Love having P.G. in the neighbourhood...not a huge menu but what they have they do very well.
Always a favourite
Always a favourite location for just dinner, or lunch, or a special occasion. Never disappoints. Staff is always friendly. Can't wait to go back!
While the food was good, it was not great. Salads were probably the best part of our meal. They were very good. Pizza on the other hand leaves something to be desired. Crust over cooked and hard. Sauce unflavorful. We had been there a few years ago and pizza was MUCH better then. Too bad they changed. Still not bad and would recommend but would caution lower expectations.
The noise level was very high. Not fun energetic, but annoying that we had trouble hearing the person sitting beside us. Perhaps the music was too loud causing people to speak louder to be heard over it. If the music was lower maybe people wouldn't need to almost shout and the total experience would be better.
Our daughter and boyfriend were away in Mexico for her actual birthday so we thought we would surprise them with a dinner out. We had been to this particular restaurant before and hoped this visit would be a repeat of out last visit. The staff did not disappoint us as everything was perfect from the moment we were seated until we left. I would recommend anyone looking for a wonderful dinning experience to take the drive down Academy.
As return customers we knew where we wanted to sit to enjoy the pizza making experience, and we were not disappointed. Our pizzas were excellent and we look forward to our next dining experience at Pizzeria Gusto!

Probably some of the best wood fired pizza in the city although a bit pricey. Would definitely recommend.

Best bang for buck in Winnipeg! Consistently excellent. Innovative, beautifully presented dishes. Pizza dough is as good as it comes
Great food and Exceptional service
Family dinner and a Birthday. Everything we tasted on menu was unique and fabulous! Our server Kendra, had excellent recommendations and she was always around but never too visible. Tough to do! We will be back!

Good food and service as usual. I like the online booking. Although the sound baffles have reduced the noise somewhat more could be added. It is sometimes difficult to hear the conversation of dinner mates.
We have been to pizzeria gusto several times, and have always enjoyed the food. The one problem we have had time and time again is the long wait. We always make a reservation and have had to wait at least 30 minutes each time. This past visit we waited 45 minutes.. We may stop visiting the resteraunt because of this. The service was good and our waiter was apologetic of this, but it is getting old going through it every time.
For a Mon. evening, the restaurant was just half-ful so the service was good but, inexplicably, my favourite pizza, the Marguerita, was cold. A bit of a disappointment this time.
