Hoboken is home to some of the best Italian restaurants. Every block has a different spot for you to eat all the pasta and chicken parm that your heart desires. Yet another popular Italian restaurant is making its way to Hoboken, and we could not be more excited. News broke a couple years back that Caffe Buon Gusto of Manhattan + Brooklyn would be opening at 918 Washington Street — though it has yet to officially open its doors. Despite not yet knowing an exact opening date, we just got word that signage has gone up, suggesting that this new Italian restaurant may be inching closer to its opening date. Here is what we know about this spot so far.

Caffe Buon Gusto has two locations located on the Upper East Side and Brooklyn, but of course, is now bringing it’s top-notch Italian fare to the Mile Square. As for the NYC locations, the restaurant has a cozy and intimate ambiance that makes you feel right at home. The staff is super friendly and very knowledgeable about the whole menu and the restaurant has a very extensive wine list. The restaurant is best known for its modern twist on old school and authentic Italian dishes. The food is made with the freshest of ingredients, and that really shows (and tastes) in all of their dishes.
