The Founder, Vincenzo, was born and raised in Porto San Giorgio, in the Marche region of Italy. He grew up fishing alongside his father. He loves seafood, a fact clearly reflected in the Buon Gusto menus. Vincenzo’s motto is “Chi Mangia Bene, Vive Bene,” which means “He who eats well, lives well.”
In 1988, Vincenzo and his partner, Carmelo, opened Buon Gusto in its present location. The friendly South San Francisco Italian community assured them that there was more than enough room for a traditional Italian restaurant in their town. Right out of the starting gate, we achieved success – an accomplishment we continue to enjoy to this day.
