Busy doesn’t do it justice. This eatery has two, fabulous patios in full sun all day long. Once a car garage, now just a shell of the original, it has a sexy – ultra cool feel to it.
Having their own wine on tap is a definite bonus, and at a dollar and ounce one can’t go wrong. The Gusto bianco is crisp and fruity while the Gusto russo is young but smooth. To start Cavolo Nero – lacinate kale, zante currents, toasted pine nuts, shaved pecorino, and lemon vinaigrette – is sharp at first then slowly finishes sweet, it’s a little magical.
To finish, I had to order the crispy thin-crust Funghi pizza with ooey gooey chewy cheese and firm little bronzed mushrooms – so flavourful – I ate the whole thing!
