    Consistently good food and service! One of my favorite Italian restaurants and not because they are only a few doors down from where I live. They've had lines out the door since they opened. Enjoy!

    This place is in the running for most amazing brunch. Ricotta fritters were perfect. Eggs "Salmone" (Benedict with smoked salmon) was really good. Huge, bottomless Mimosa! (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    This place is unbelievably delicious, inexpensive, never crowded, and in a beautiful part of Brooklyn. Sunday brunch is one of the best in the 'hood.

    This is our neighborhood restaurant. The spinach with pears and walnuts salad is a must, be it for brunch or weekday lunch.

    I always get the spinach salad with the salmone entree. I can't bring myself to stray from this order because it's so good.

    The arugula salad is lovely with shaved parmesan. The lasagna comes out in a large portion with the pasta cooked just right.

    Try something a little different for brunch: Uovo Al Frono- Baked eggs over polenta, Ricotta and tomato sauce.
