Lynda and Alan Przybylski welcome you to Bella Gusta select oils and vinegars.

Through our many international travels we have been able to experience what the world sees as commonplace, but we so often are not allowed those same experiences back home.

Tasting before you buy...

From the night markets in Hong Kong eyeing incredibly unfamiliar delights, to the neighborhood Italian market on the Amalfi coast tasting unbelievable fresh cheeses, breads and cured meats, we wanted to bring this time honored way of life back home to you.

We hand select and taste every oil and vinegar before being offered to our customers. Our importing arm is the absolute best in the business and only offers UP (ultra premium) certified olive oils. No one else in the business can offer that. Our balsamic vinegars are all Modena produced and have the highest quality level available today.

With the recent exposure of "fake" and adulterated olive oils being introduced into our country, you can rest assured that any oil from Bella Gusta is 100% certified as to its origin, freshness and certification as Extra Virgin by way of  independent chemical analysis.

Our West Hartford flagship store opened in 2010 and includes a vast selection of oils and vinegars on tap ready for you to taste before you purchase.

Let us tempt you with fused and infused Extra Virgin Olive Oils such as Blood Orange, Tuscan Herb, Mushroom and Sage, Persian Lime, Chipotle, Herbs de Provence, Basil, Garlic.... and specialty oils like both Black and White Truffle, Roasted Sesame, Butternut Squash Seed Oil and Roasted French Walnut Oil.

Our Single Varietal Extra Virgin Olive Oils are a rotating selection of the best the world has to offer based on the latest pressings from both Northern and Southern Hemisphere olive producers. We change our offerings seasonally as the freshest oils become available. At any time in our store you may see varietals from Italy, Greece, Spain, Australia, California, Chile, Argentina, Tunisia, and more.

Tasting Balsamic Vinegars at Bella Gusta is truly an experience you do not want to pass up.  Our diverse selection includes both white balsamics such as Cranberry Pear, Sicilian Lemon, Peach, Honey Ginger, White Apple, Orange-Vanilla, Jalapeno, Grapefruit and more. And dark balsamics such as Fig, Dark Chocolate, Red Apple, Espresso, Tangerine, Black Cherry, Raspberry, Black Currant, Cinnamon Pear and an 18 Year Old Traditional version.

Wine vinegars are also available to taste: a 25 year old Cask Aged Sherry vinegar from Andalusia Spain, Champagne vinegar, Pinot Noir Red Wine vinegar and an Organic Italian Red Wine vinegar.

Our family run business has one single goal, that is to provide our customers with the best possible service, product quality, and value.

Gift bagging is always available in store and free of charge. Custom basket requests and Corporate gift programs are always welcome, please allow ample time to process.

We offer a wonderful assortment of wedding and shower favors that are guaranteed to be the hit of the party. Call Lynda for details.
