    A converted garage is the place for this tasty and fresh Italian joint. Start your journey with the Kale Salad and bruschetta and then move on to a pasta. Tried the Frutti de Mare. Just incredible.

    The kale salad with steak is absolutely great and so is Pappardelle ai Funghi - creamy yet not too heavy, with a lot of flavour. Came in before 5pm on a weekday, didn't wait long, great service!

    Love the vibe on the fab rooftop patio. More intimate inside. The staff are adorable (minus the guy in the Yankees cap...boooo). Order the kale salad. Have an espresso just for the cute cup!

    Gusto 101 is a great spot for a more modern take on signature Italian dishes. Some excellent imported wines selected by their sommelier/owner. Good price points for the more frugal or frivolous.

    PAPPARDELLE AI FUNGHI. Wow. I drool thinking about it. Perfectly cooked pasta... so much flavour... goes great with their house wine. Other things can be hit or miss, but this is always perfection.

    Best to arrive early to enjoy the grilled branzino or quattro fromaggi -- both very good, when you finally manage to get a table. Mains start at $17, pizzas at $12. Read more

    Fave: Da Dee pizza (sweet potatoes, lacinate kale, local fior di latte, caramelized spanish onions, pecorino, rosemary) and Salmon (fava beans, escarole, pachino tomatoes, salsa verde)

    The house wine is surprisingly so good! The rooftop patio is really great - perfect for dates or spending time with the girls. Tasteful decor and good atmosphere.

    Excellent place. Vibe, good service, location, interior, great food - all there. Tried pizza this time. Comparable to one at Pizzeria Libretto but still lacks something.

    The carpaccio & polipo (char grilled octopus) were fantastic. Their egg noodles were also phenomenal - had the Pappardelle ai Funghi. They make a great negroni too - but drink service was slow.

    Food has been good but the bar and patio area are even better. Great place to hang and check out the king west scene. Lovely private room downstairs for dining.

    Great decor/atmosphere and service. (Getting a seat upstairs is a plus). I had the Carpaccio and Moroccan Chicken. Both were delicious. Definitely going back.

    Pros: Food was all good, waiter was nice, service was fast. Good restaurant. Cons: The rooftop isn't that nice, and it overlooks a dark alley and dumpster. Foursquare is misleading about the rooftop.

    Amazing Italian cuisine with gorgeous rooftop! Pasta can be a bit too salty, so just ask for less.

    Rigatoni, kale salad and arancini are to die for. I couldn't help but close my eyes after every bite to savour it. This place is good... Dare I say better than moms

    Best kale salad I've ever had. Pair it with a flatiron steak and you're golden.

    Excellent service even during busy times. I had the ink pasta - 7 out of 10. Kale salad is popular and famous, apparently.

    Get the Avocado Lemonade. It's got an unique flavor with a kick. "My friend" swears by it as the ultimate hangover cure.

    The food menu could be bigger — relative to its drinks. If you're going for some grub, get the mushroom pasta.

    Sunday nite lasagna for the win! Also their in-house wine is delish - $1 per oz only too!

    Get there early if you can and try to get a seat away from the kitchen as it gets really hot when they're cooking!

    The brick chicken was really good... Get there early and you'll get a table, come late and have to wait.

    If you are not sure about the weather, use the roof top terasse. Good breeze out there.

    The tomato mozarella salad was yum. The beef carpaccio appetizer very good as well.The calamari tastes like chicken, not sure why.

    The mushroom and cream pasta is my favorite but the pizzas are stiff competition. Both lose out to the $1/oz house wine, though.

    Pollo al matonne is really Good. The patio has a nice decoration. Kind of a man cave restaurant

    Fettuccini Funghi is very good. Pizza is so - so. Pulpo appetizer is tasty but not worth the price...they should increase the portion size for this dish. Ambience is cool but loud.

    Incredible Fettucine with the mushroom pasta. It used to be good. Now it's better. TRUFFLE PASTE!
