Hot Dining: Beautiful Basics at Gusto 101

There’s certainly no shortage of rustic Italian restaurants in this city, but we’re willing to make room for newcomers when their quality is as high as Gusto 101. A spiffily remodeled auto body shop in the fashionable King West district now houses an open kitchen with wood-fired grill, a basement winery and many guests feasting on such Southern Italian dishes as ricotta and spinach ravioli ($14.95), grilled branzino ($24.95) and, of course, a shortlist of pizzas. In a nod to the restaurant’s trendy surroundings, chef Daniel Mezzolo and his team even offer a late-night menu, available from 11:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. Thursday through Saturday.
