If you are in Frankies Spuntino 457, try a Margarita with Pueblo Viejo Blanco.
Pasta, all types
cremini mushroom/truffle oil and ricotta/speck crostinis, escargot salad, and meatballs are the best. I'm sure everything is good though. oh and the mezcal - order it 🙏🏻
Cavatelli with hot sausage and browned sage butter and meatballs
Beautiful outdoor space in the back and awesome food. Gnocchi was delicious. Great wine selection by the bottle or glass. $5 olives that were assorted red and green!
Cavatelli with brown butter and sausage
gorgeous back patio garden. start w the avocado / heirloom tomato salad.
One of the best Italian restaurants I've ever been to. Fresh and delicious- all ingredients made in house. Try the cavatelli with sausage and pappardelle with braised rabbit!
Top 5 Italian places in the city. I personally love the cavatelli
Perfect first date spot ❤️
My favorite thing about this place was the $13 carafe of house red wine. Unbeatable deal.
Get a seat in the back yard - well worth the wait.
For the hype surrounding this place and the reputation of that these guys have, the food was surprisingly plain. Appetizers were good. Entrees/desserts, meh.
Crab boil will run you 80 but unlimited rose and punch, with oysters and crab >>> a fun communal affair complete w shared buckets to toss your shells~~
Brunch until 4pm at weekend. Nice ravioli. Good draft beer selection too
I would gladly take a bubble bath in their sage butter cavatelli. One of my favorite dishes in all of NYC.
Meatball parm sandwich, I like you. Like, like like.
Really nice outdoor section. The rabbit pappardelle is good
Never been, hear it's fantastic.
Pasta, garden, date
Consistently delicious Italian in the heart of Carroll Gardens. Brooklyn vibe, cavatelli, meatballs, good wine, garden - can't go wrong.
Eggplant Parmesan, mmmmm!
Just about everything is excellent here--the only problem is that it's so hard to get in. Lovely backyard as well, unfortunately it's just about always booked up for special events.
Order the Foreign Office cocktail
Homemade cavatelli is the freshest around and the BLT is genuine goodness. Doesn't knock you off your socks but the warm ambiance and the quality in ingredients and service should send you right back.
I got the sweet potatoes ravioli which sweet and tasty. Lot of tapas options to share too.
Oh god the gnocchi
You can get in without waiting 2 hours for brunch. So that's something I guess.
Love the cavitelli and tiramisu!
I'm addicted to the tuna sandwich.
Sweet potato ravioli was amazing! And it came perfectly portioned!
The sausage, pepper, onion on polenta is fantastic! I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a sophisticated looking, but simple tasting meal. Really good!
You can't go wrong, but the meatballs and braciola will blow your mind.
Great small plates to share.
Truly a hidden Italian gem in Carroll Gardens. Try the Octopus Salad to start. Duck Lasagna for main. Tiramisu to close out a fantastic meal.
Excellent all round.
Order an Aperol Spritz, the Cavatelli, and sit outside if it's warm. Perfect Sunday.
Great food and super cute outdoor dining. A word to the wise: bring bug spray.
Get a pitcher of Summer Jam :)
The Watercress salad (with fig and Gorgonzola) + Meatballs for dinner = happy mouth
The garden is magical! Paired with the octopus salad and any homemade pasta - perfetto!
The gnocchi are like little clouds.
Get a tasty no-wait brunch, then ask for a latte and can of olive oil for the road.
The meatballs are great!
The three or four-course prix-fixe –served family style - is a great deal! Also the BLT – served at Lunch only – is a sure fire hangover cure!
A neighborhood treasure - Get a few salads and a couple of mains. The cavatelli pasta is the best dish on the menu. Also if the weather is good, try and sit in the awesome back garden.
