Piazza Augusto Imperatore, 9
This popular restaurant has two separate spaces. The simpler and more informal of the two is a street-level pizzeria, where at least a dozen kinds of homemade pastas and pizzas are offered. More upscale and somewhat calmer, is the upstairs restaurant and wine bar where, within an appropriately minimalist setting, a cutting-edge fusion of Italian and Pacific Rim cuisine is served; for example, spaghetti stir-fried in a Chinese wok. A cookware shop and library complete the scene. More recent additions to the 'Gusto empire are the Osteria and 'Gusto al 28: both face the same piazza and offer a cocktail bar, fish restaurant and cafeteria.
