Retrogusto is a pizzeria and bar that brings some much needed excitement to the north end of Preston street. We serve a Roman style pizza "Tonda", traditional roman fried snacks, salumi, cheeses and other small plates. Our food will be complimented by a small wine list that will be in constant rotation, strictly Italian classic cocktails, and beautiful amaro's from around Italy. The warm, cozy, dimly lit dining room with an open kitchen will be the perfect place to do the only thing that matters; eat good food, drink good wine and have a good time with friends.

    Incredible Italian food, focusing on pizzas as their mains. Our server's knowledge really showed through his recommendations on drink pairings and combinations of appetizers. Overall we were treated to a delightful, multi-course culinary experience in a lively, casually hip dining room.

    As always, thoroughly enjoyable. I do wish you would have a nightly pasta option for days where pizza isn't it for me, but otherwise... no notes :)

    We arrived earlier and despite being busy the bartender was very accommodating and allowed us to use the bar. We ended up eating at the bar as he was very knowledgeable in his drinks but also food. Food was tasteful, service was impeccable. I Would gladly return again.

    Excellent restaurant du groupe qui possède Farinella à Ottawa. Idéal pour savourer un pizza de qualité avec un personnel très accueillant et souriant. J'ai préféré de loin mon expérience dans ce restaurant qu'à l'établissement de Rochester qui est en formule cantine take-out. Retro Gusto est situé dans un ancien restaurant chinois pour lequel la décoration n'a pas été refaite à l'exception des luminaires. Son charme est là, mais il faut apprécié de genre d'endroit. Je recommande l'huile aux piments qui se trouvent sur les tables et le négroni en appréro. J'ai dévoré une succulente pizza aux zucchinis avec de «meringues» de ricotta fouettées!
