What you’re getting: Mafalde ai Funghi
The always-bustling Gusto 101 offers a fun, energetic, unpretentious atmosphere, and one that can easily cater to everyone from couples, to families, to groups of friends. The varied menu of Southern Italian classics has a lot of dishes worth coming back for, but the Mafalde ai Funghi is a standout. Earthy and rich, the creamy plate of pasta is comprised of portobello, porcini, and oyster mushrooms bathed in a truffle cream sauce. Bonus: Gusto 101 is also a micro-winery, and they’ve got wine on tap for $1 an ounce.
