Gusto Ristorante and Bar bills itself “as close to actually dining in Italy as it gets.” This West Village neighborhood eatery has won the loyalty of regulars with its emphasis on freshness; all pasta is made in-house, and the menu changes regularly to take advantage of seasonal produce. Expect to find dishes not often seen outside of Italy, such as seppioline (marinated cuttlefish). End the meal with a grappa or another dopo cena (after-dinner drink). Though the space may seem upscale with its golden walls, ebony tables, huge chandeliers, and back-lit bar, don’t be intimidated, as jeans are acceptable attire.
