    I'm going to say it: I don't like Italian food. Somehow, I absolutely loved this place! Go for simple & get the rigatoni with sausage ragu or Dino's beloved lemon spaghetti! Great for a date night.

    Authentically Ft Greene and Italian-- pasta in big bowls, burratta, chicken liver crostini, home-made gelato. Antique, dim-lit background w/ multi culti crowd and reggae on the stereo. Just right

    try the savory farro porridge, dino french toast, crispy bacon, and a latte. all were savory & sweet, while hidden flavors unraveled from each. easily one of the best cups of coffee in brooklyn 👍

    The sautéed calamari is a Must. Can't go wrong with their specials altho their main menu is pretty awesome too. Had the Saffron Risotto w/asparagus+ scallops tonight. PS Chris is the BeSt bartender!!

    Skip out on the fancy stuff. The simple spaghetti lemone—al dente spaghetti seeped in a light, tangy butter, garlic, olive oil and lemon sauce—is a revelation. Read more

    Pretty much everything is good. For brunch, try the savory farro porridge, the eggs Benedict (amazing!), or the steak and eggs. Dinner menu is also great. Pretty decent wine selection as well.

    Skirt Steak - amazing. Also, lovely collection of wines - if you're on a mission to impress, I would say save up a little bit and go for the beautiful Amarone della Valpolicella.

    Taste - rigatoni (slow-cooked ragú of meatballs and sausage topped with fresh ricotta cheese), bucatini (amatriciana. pancetta, tomato and onion gravy, fresh mint, and pecorino romano) Read more

    You'd think that not getting pasta, and instead ordering a burger, is a mistake at an Italian restaurant that seems to specialize in pastas, right? Not at Dino. The burger was amazing!

    I was not impressed. It was a hot Friday evening and my expectations were too high. Quaint space, bar service was great, server was kinda rude (typical NYC service). Frozen pork patty was not cute.

    I often have massive cravings for the BLT on focaccia w/garlic aoli. It's a little messy because they roast the tomatoes, but don't be precious about it. Just enjoy!

    Black Linguine is good, so is the fried calamari. Order both and your in for a calamari overload, no complaints. Cocktails are boring and expensive, I'd stick with wine.

    Fresh pappardelle with lamb ragu and a kickass chianti when it's 7degrees out can't be beat. Walked in at 830pm with no issues for a party of 4.

    Can't really go wrong with this darling Fort Greene spot. Be sure to ask which of the pastas are made fresh on-site.

    Absolutely obsessed with their Spaghetti Lemone. The zest of the lemon and the richness of the creamy Parmesan - it's perfection.

    Very good #pasta and a beautiful outdoor garden. Worth checking out on a nice spring evening. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    All of the pastas are great - my favorite is the Rigatoni Ragu but the Spaghetti Limone & Fedellini are close seconds.

    Good solo meal = sit at the bar, order whatever red wine they have featured and eat a kale Caeser and sautéed calamari.

    Love their special, butternut squash lasagne (surprisingly crispy) and pear gorgonzola salad (refreshingly tangy)

    Great menu of northern italian inspired dishes and a small but tasty wine selection. Nice owner, cool bartender.

    The fresh, perfectly cooked pasta stands above the other more rustic Italian spots in the neighborhood

    Dino has the biggest pours of wine in BK. An amazing place to sit at the bar and get a wine buzz after work.

    Fantastic take on the BLT, if you're here for brunch. Sadly, the side salad is astoundingly boring, though.

    My favs are the orecchiette and the rigatoni. A bit pricey but super yummy.

    Good food, but incredible slow service at brunch. Our waitress was so slow we thought she wasn't sober.

    The food is good but doesn't justify its insane pricing.
