Planning began in late 2013 for Pizzeria Gusto.  The old building had been through so many modifications that we literally had no idea what we were going to encounter once we started demolition.  To our great surprise, there was a beautiful blonde brick deco storefront hidden behind layers of brick, wood shingles and fake stone.  The existing elements ended up changing our design on a few different occasions through the construction process.  We love the look of the space we ended up with.  Check  out some milestones in the process below.  Click on any picture to start a slideshow.
