This place is a must do (& redo & redo &...) So glad we had our 1st (of to be, many returns). Absolutely everything was top notch, from the amazing Brio Frites, seasoned hand-cut fries served with a mayo dipping sauce. Menu claims - the best fries in Peterborough, I have no doubts. Our mains were delicious, my Mushroom &... More

My wife and I decided to escape for an overnight weekend adventure and selected Peterborough as our destination because of the proximity to home. We made a hotel reservation but no other commitments. While walking around in the downtown area, we decided to stop for dinner rather than come out again later. We happened upon this restaurant, Brio Gusto, and... More

Really enjoyed our meal tonight! First off, it's a beautiful setting. We sat in a lovely booth, close and cozy to a radiator. There's a comprehensive menu with yummy charcuterie boards, daily mussel specials, delicious artisanal entrees, pizzas, house made desserts and even delicious burgers and sandwiches. I had a ridiculously fabulous burger, flavorful, perfectly cooked and seasoned and topped... More

I was expecting an Italian restaurant... but this isn't it. They serve pizza, but the rest of the menu was all over the place so hard to categorize. Not sure if our experience was typical - the place was almost empty on a Sunday evening... a bit eerie. The service was good, the waiter happily willing to meet requests, and... More

One of my wife and I's go tos in Ptbo. Very respectable dining experience for a reasonable price. Can't really call it anything specific as the menu hits alot of notes. Vibe of the place is great and service is always excellent. That being said, what I HAVE to point out is that if and when you happen to see... More

Visited Brio Gusto in Nov. 2016 with friends. Ordered their French Onion soup and was disappointed by the presentation because it wasn't oven baked but the flavour was amazing, not too salty and homemade. The 3 of us each enjoyed the chicken club sandwich at $14. It had chicken breast, no processed meat here, with a small number of fires... More

I regularly travel to Peterborough for business and typically include Brio Gusto in my visit. The staff are always inviting and friendly. The food is consistently of high quality (I especially enjoy the steak). The wine list is regularly updated and easily paired with the meal. Would definitely recommend Brio Gusto to others.

Came to Brio Gusto on a lunch date. It was a Sunday, about 1PM. No problem being seated, waitress was great and gave us ample time to make our choices. I had the Burger, it was amazing. No complaints at all about our lunch. Hope to return at some point. Oh, and price was great too.

Thank JohnnyB88
