Gustiamo is an online retailer, which means most of our customers shop on our website. But, YES, you can indeed also come and visit the Gustiamo warehouse in The Bronx to shop. If you come, we ask that you come on Friday and purchase our foods by the case (usually between 6-12 units), which will be discounted by 10%. Do your homework before you stop by! Per favore, do look on our website at all of our products (very interesting, so much to read!) and prices (very expensive, the price of good food!) before you come. You can even place your order online before your visit to The Bronx by writing in the “special instructions” section at checkout of your online order that you will come to pick up your order; and yes, we will be sure to remove your shipping charges and apply any relevant discount before we collect from your credit card. Gustiamo is open to the public for shopping every Friday from 10am-4pm.

Grazie! The creation of this website was a beautiful labor of love, realized by our community of food loving geniuses who were up for a good food barter! The tech virtuoso behind our website was Lorenzo dell'Uva and his team at Intermedia mmh in Bologna. Our oh-so-Gusti, look + feel, as well as our gorgeous illustrations, were designed by Caterina Tandello and her team at MammaLab, also in Bologna. The product descriptions for all of our products were written by the Italian food writer and renaissance woman Megan McGowan; she’s based in Brooklyn but we are pretty sure her heart is based in a trattoria in rural Emilia Romagna. All of the food product photography was done by the Brooklyn based Aimee Brodeur; we are not sure which she loves more, eating Gusti foods or photographing them. The art direction of the food photography was done by Luise Stauss of Stauss & Quint in Manhattan; her artistic eye is almost as impressive as her appetite for real Italian food. Did you notice our stellar category icons? Those babies were created by Nicholas Blechman; he’s an ardent real Italian food defender and the infographic mastermind behind The New York Times Food Chains; he also designed all of our Gift Baskets+Boxes, they are truly works of art!.
We are a small (but growing!) team based in the Bronx (off the 2 and 5 subway), where we have been since 1999. Gustiamo is not hiring for a specific position but we are ALWAYS open to hiring people who share our philosophy, who are inspired by what we do, and who think they have the right attitude to complement and add to our team. Gustiamo has a special company culture and a very strong ethical commitment to Italy’s food makers. To be a member of team Gusti you must have a passion for real Italian food, have an entrepreneurial spirit, be able to speak Italian (at least conversationally), and most importantly have an amazing attitude. Gustiamo is a 16 year old startup in a growth stage. We are looking for people who can help with everyday tasks (warehouse, admin, customer service, social media etc.) but who can also carve out their own niche at Gustiamo, doing what highlights their strengthens and what they love. Gustiamo welcomes interest from everyone, regardless of citizenship. Interested? The best way to get to know us is on our website, blog, and interact with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (@gustiamo). Find a creative way to interact with our brand. Impress us!

Gustiamo importa e distribuisce cibo italiano da più di sedici anni. Olio extravergine di oliva, pomodori e pasta sono solo alcuni dei prodotti di altissima qualità prodotti dai migliori artigiani e agricoltori italiani, che grazie a noi e al nostro sito, finiscono sulle tavole dei consumatori e dei ristoranti americani e canadesi. La nostra squadra, che dal 1999 fa base in un magazzino del Bronx (facilmente raggiungibile da Manhattan, vicino le fermate dei subway 2 e 5) non è grande, ma è in costante crescita. Non stiamo cercando persone per una posizione specifica, ma persone che condividono la nostra passione, che si sentono ispirati dalla nostra missione e che credono di avere l’attitudine giusta per arricchire il nostro organico. Gustiamo ha una cultura aziendale molto speciale. Abbiamo sedici anni di vita e ma ancora siamo una startup con un’etica volta a promuovere e supportare solo il vero e autentico cibo italiano. Dunque, per fare parte del “Gusti Team” non devi solo avere uno spirito imprenditoriale e una buona conoscenza dell’italiano e dell’inglese, ma anche passione per i piatti preparati nella maniera giusta e soprattutto tanto entusiasmo. Siamo infatti alla ricerca di persone che possano aiutarci con le attività giornaliere (dal magazzino all’amministrazione, dall’assistenza clienti ai social media) e che possano trovare con noi la loro dimensione e un motivo di realizzazione personale. Sei interessato? Bene! Gustiamo è aperta a tutti, a prescindere dalla cittadinanza. Prima di tutto però devi iniziare a conoscerci. Familiarizza con il nostro sito e il nostro blog, seguici e lascia commenti su Facebook, Instagram e Twitter. Trova un modo creativo di attirare la nostra attenzione e di interagire con il nostro brand. Insomma, stupiscici e solo a quel punto contatta Danielle per candidarti (danielle.ar@gustiamo.com).
