    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

    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.

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

    Really? You can't throw a sunny side up egg on my dish in lieu of poached? You don't serve regular coffee at brunch? And there's no ketchup? And the meal is flavorless and dried out to top it all off.

    Terrible place. The top desk isn't open until 6pm, cocktails by the pitcher, although on the menu, aren't available anymore as they're not "cost effective". Dreary and stuck up.
