Pizzeria
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 aromas 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 "Bellissimo"!
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.

    We were seated and served promptly. The antipasto plate was delicious, as were the two pizzas we ordered. Service was excellent. The dining room got a little loud once it started to fill up. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

    Great pizza and service. Tables outside are very close to each other. We should have sat at the other end of the patio, where it would have been quieter. Sort of spoiled my birthday celebration which wasn't mentioned, even though it was typed in the booking reference.

    Our experience was awful! There furniture is substandard my son sat down on a chair that collapsed. Nobody reacted except for other patrons . When I complained that if this had been my father or stepmother it would have been catastrophic. I was told they’d comp some of our bill instead they brought us a glass of Prosecco which was nice but not ordered and then charged full price with no inquiry about my son. Who is bruised and it is their negligence that caused it. There food quality has deteriorated over the last while. We will never go back! My worst experience at a Winnipeg restaurant!

    Wrote on the reservation that was celebrating a birthday - and server didn’t acknowledge or ask what the occasion was for. Ordered a bottle of wine - and was very disappointed in the taste (was very light) compared to what we had wanted. Server was not concerned that we didn’t like the bottle even after we had said it wasn’t to our liking. Had to order an additional bottle as we didn’t like it.

    My wife's pizza was devoid of topping despite the description on the menu. My entree was barely warm, and it was certainly overpriced. Fortunately the server was understanding and wanted to have us order something else. We declined. We were not required to pay for the food. While we have not gone to Pizzeria Gusto often in the recent past, it will be a long time before we try it again, even though we can walk there from home.

    We were out for Mothers Day with the grandparents and our daughter. The staff went way above and beyond to accommodate us in terms of seating, cooking the food so it was softer for our baby and providing some much needed extra napkins! It could’ve been stressful taking our little one out, but because of the great team it was wonderful and memorable! Thank you all so much!

    I had booked the reservation for a standard table and we were seated at the counter which had very uncomfortable chairs (especially for my 7 month pregnant self!) We waited close to 20 minutes for a server to approach and we asked to be moved to a table as per initially requested which was accommodated quickly. Our new server was quick to get us drinks and our appetizer came out very fast and the rest of our meal took a little long but was delicious and we enjoyed our date night out despite the initial mixup and slightly slower service.

    I received a phone call in the morning to confirm my reservation. Time and number of party were confirmed. I like booking through the app as it leaves no room for confusion, I pick what I need, confirm it and have a copy on my phone to prove it. This reservation was for my wife’s birthday, I booked a standard seating not a countertop and not a bar seating. We show up and the server walk us to the bar. I initially thought it was for us to wait until our table was ready, so I told there as I have knee pain and can’t use high stools. my wife told me that was were they placed us. I then looked for the server and noted that I specified on the app a standard table, to which she answered sorry we don’t have any tables available as if I am placing a new request and hadn’t already booked one. She was pleasant and said she will go speak to her magnet and see if she can move things around.The manager shows up and says that was the only spot available, again, as if I am placing a new request nod a booked one. when I explained that I had requested such seating and confirmed such request via the app, as well as receiving a confirmation phone call from the restaurant the morning of the reservation without flagging that my request was’t possible, he responded by blaming it on the app and that the app overbooks sometimes rather than taking responsibility for not checking the app prior to double booking tables over the phone. He didn’t apologize for screwing up my reservation, when appointed out 2 tables available for 2 people, he said those tables were reserved. When I asked what’s the difference between those reservations and mine, he said they booked first, without even going back to the system to check which came first. They also assumed without checking my accessibly needs that I’m able to sit on a bar stool which also physically I am not able to do. This was the worst experience I have had in a reputable restaurant. I am also left questioning the credibility of the app.
