DiscoverGousto Bistro

“Gousto” – Italian meaning taste. All our dishes are created with taste in mind, delivering a lot of flavor and freshness everyday. In Italian cuisine, taste is ubiquitous with flavors and smell and at Gousto Bistro, they emanate from all our delicious Mediterranean dishes at our Italian restaurant in Vieux-Longueuil.

Gousto Bistro is a warm, Italian restaurant in Vieux-Longueuil where you eat heavenly meals. We wanted to recreate the atmosphere of an Italian trattoria with a cosmopolitan touch, thanks to our international experience and epicurean-ism.

It is a gathering place where guests are welcomed like family and feel at home. Gousto Bistro is more than just a restaurant, it is also a comforting place with homemade dishes to enjoy in our restaurant, or choose to take away. You can buy pizzas, home-cooked meals, focaccia and fresh bread of the day.

THE TASTE OF ITALY IN THE HEART OF OLD LONGUEUIL

BUON APPETITO!

Welcome...To Gousto Bistro!

THE CHEF AND HIS TEAM ALWAYS INSPIRE AUTHENTIC ITALIAN RECIPES. ALL OUR DISHES ARE HOMEMADE; BREAD, PASTA OUR SAUCES, OUR FAMOUS STUFFED OLIVES, OUR DESSERTS, ETC., ALWAYS WITH FRESH INGREDIENTS.

LikeA Big Family

For everything else; meats and fish, we always source the freshest produce from the most reputable local suppliers. We surrounded ourselves with a great team. It is for us a great success. We spend more time in the restaurant than at home so Gousto, for us, is a big family!

GianfrancoDi Nisio

Chef / Owner

Born in Italy in the Abruzzo region, an “Italiano vero,” Gianfranco is an autodidact and very passionate about cooking. Already, at a very young age,he accompanied his mother in markets looking for products to make her delicious homemade dishes according to the Italian tradition. “My passion for cooking was largely passed on to me by my mother. She was a real blue cordon,” Franco says.

“In addition to teaching me and introducing me to the symphony of flavors, she has also taught me that it is a true proof of generosity and affection to cook for someone, to spend time preparing a meal. Meals that not only satisfy, but also to provide a gastronomic experience capable of astonishing and renewing the pleasure of eating.”

Passionate about gastronomy and service, Gianfranco learned his craft in the biggest hotels in London where his want for his own restaurant was further developed.
After landing in Quebec with his partner Aurelie and after a few years of work in the best Italian restaurants in Montreal, his dream of opening his own establishment came true. Gianfranco has always wanted to share his love of cooking and hospitality. He is very passionate and worthy of the “Italiano vero” title because he always cooks pasta perfectly al dente !!!!

AurelieSiles

Co-Owner

Native of Hyères’ in the south of France and coming from the world of maitre d’hotel and fine dinning, Gousto Bistro, her Italian restaurant in Longueuil, is the logical continuation of a long journey. Aurelie has worked for the Intercontinental Hotel and the Ritz Carlton in Montreal, where she acquired a keen sense for five-star service.

“In the restaurant, I see a lot in the room and I want to ensure high-quality the moment a client sits at the table,” Aurelie says.

“On the rare occasion that I am away, I attend to administrative tasks or spend time with our children. I give a sense of importance to people, know everyone on a first-name basis. I tend to worry about those who I haven’t seen in a while. Because Gousto Bistro has many loyal clients, I’m slowly learning their family tree, to the point of hearing stries about who built Vieux-Longueil.

For me, Gousto Bistro is an Italian culinary experience that is comforting, traditional and family-oriented. This is my passion and I wish to share it with our staff and customers.

I am not only passionate about gastronomy. I live life to the fullest and I overflow with energy! That’s good thing because at Gousto Bistro, it’s very needed!
