Went there for a business lunch - service was fast efficient and polite. Food was just excellent - good flavours and well sized portions. Pretty noisy though - the dining room is not the biggest, so don't expect to carry on a decent conversation.

Buon Gusto is a nice little spot in Darlington to satisfy your cravings for Italian food. The ingredients were fresh, and meals were served relatively quickly on the Saturday night we visited. Service, menu and interior decor were all within the usual expected standards. Personally there wasn't anything that particularly stood out, though the food was nice and there were... More

On first sight, the restaurant looks like one that you would find on the streets of Italy. Inside, the atmosphere is vibrant, energetic and homely and, every time I go, the restaurant is full. The service is also very good. The pizzas are always very filling and flavoursome, especially the capricciosa. When I go, I always order the gnocchi buon... More

Ate an early meal before a performance at the Carriage Works, easy walking distance. Excellent service, friendly waiting staff, pizza very enjoyable, desserts delicious. Would definitely recommend and will return on a cooler night to taste other meals on the menu.

Lovely little restaurant with great Italian food, good servings, good value for money and a good variety to choose from on the menu. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Definitely would eat here when next I am in the area. Tiramisu was wonderful. Keep up the good work guys.

First visit to have dinner before a show at Carriageworks. Certainly won't be the last. Friendly service. Delicious pizza and home-made Limoncello to finish. If the show had finished before 10pm we would have gone back for dessert.

Overseas I review restaurants on the basis of one visit, so why not in my hometown? This was a solo visit before a show at Carriageworks. The prices at the pub over the road scared me off so i decided to try Buon Gusto. It proved to be well worthwhile, or maybe I was just lucky with the dish I... More

The food and service was good for our group of 9. The pizza and lasagne we shared at our end of the table was delicious. All other meals were equally as good. Little things like no noticing the water bottles were empty so dropping tge rating to 4. Overall price was good and no corkage is a definite winner.

Just dropped in before a show at Carriageworks - gluten free no problem, could adjust dishes. Food was generous and flavoursome, we came back for dessert and limoncello after the show. Will definitely return.

We have been visiting this restaurant on and off for more than 20 years, but sometime in the last 12 months it has changed hands, and when the previous owners left they obviously took the know-how, atmosphere, and most of the menu with them. From a friendly family affair it has gone to a slick modern eatery with little atmosphere... More
