Great little Italian restaurant in the middle of a quaint little Northern New Jersey town. The price is right if you get there before 6:00pm, buy one and get an entree for one half off. It's a BYOB, good good, clean and great service! The bread is delicious and the eggplant rollatini appetizer a must. They also have a wonderful... More

Group of 6 to celebrate a birthday. Staff friendly and wonderful. Even offered to cook gluten free. Food is delicious, and large variety. It's a BYOB, so that is always a good thing (Forget? no worries, liquor store down the street).

BYO. My wife and I enjoyed two different veal entrees and the servings where perfect. Sometimes restaurants give you way too much food and it just disguises a lack of quality. The house salads where simple and delicious.

When I am home and want to celebrate something special, this is our "go to" BYOB. Fantastic food, lovely family establishment with quality ingredients and consistent flavorful dishes. We always order the oysters, my guys must have the Steak Au Poivre but I am more adventurous and had many of their menu and specials selections. Never ever disappointed. This is... More

I was coming in to town for a weekend to spend with an old girlfriend and catch up on families, etc. Service was fantastic. Food was amazing! I loved being able to bring our own wine. Very nice touch. Thank you for all that you did.

Always great food. Fresh and hot. Spedini is a must have appetizer. They will make it even if it's not on the special menu. Been here numerous times. And never seems to disappointment. Service may get slow at points, but it also pumps out a lot of dinners in a small place.

food and service are EXCELLENT. Been going there for years and never a bad meal. Its BYOB and they'll bring over a bucket to keep your wine/champagne chilled. They take reservations and I would recommend you make them as they get busy on Fridays and Saturdays. The entrance is a bit strange as there is no maitre 'd stand; so... More

We met friends from New Jersey at Buon Gusto for dinner and "catching up". We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we entered and this continued until we left a few hours later.
