About us

Enter into the world of Excellent Gusto!


Excellent Gusto is an Italian brand that was born from the idea of promoting Italy and its cuisine at an international level, amidst Tradition and Innovation, through the Excellent Gusto International Online Magazine, Gourmet Events and Culinary Trips.

Our Values

Tradition, Innovation, Education, Sharing.

Excellent Gusto has received international praise and takes pride in its prestigious collaborations with government organisations and academia, such as the University of Sydney Business School, the European Institute of Design, the International School of Comics, the European University Institute, the University of Florence and the Italian Academy of Art and Culture in the UK, for which Excellent Gusto is a “guru of Italian Taste”. Excellent Gusto’s graphic logo was designed by the Florentine painter, Giovanni Bruzzi, who was awarded the title of Official Knight of the Italian Republic for his artistic merits.

Get inspired by our international team, working every day for you! In the Excellent Gusto International Online Magazine you can discover stories about lifestyle and culinary trends in Italy and other Countries, look up typical recipes of regional cuisine throughout the Bel Paese, in addition to the new Excellent Gusto Recipes we have created together with famous Chefs and other VIPs. Take part in our exclusive Gourmet Events and join us on our extraordinary Culinary Trips throughout the magical Italian regions.
