Fabulous 100

Gusto

Though it is a neighbourhood place, Gusto is the rare local spot worth a visit just for the food, adhering to the kind of up-front, simply layered, freshness-beats-all approach that makes Italian the most appealing summer fare.

Gusto’s menu is stocked with items like panzanella (bread salad), grilled focaccia with fig and prosciutto, squash blossoms filled with mozzarella and ricotta, and seppioline (marinated cuttlefish with chiles and crushed olives) that will not weigh you down.
