    They're very accommodating of large groups but tend to rush you out a bit.

    Enjoy some of the best Italian food in Brooklyn's backyard (but really, their backyard is incredible). But be warned: this restaurant is cash only.

    Great arugula pear salad and burratina con prosciutto. We had the pappardelle con agnello for our pasta entree and it was delicious! It could've been salted a bit better though, easy fix.

    Consistently delicious, favorite Italian restaurant in Brooklyn. Don't get me started on the whiskey bread. Affordable prices but cash only.

    Very small, great for two-four people. Amazing food and friendly waitstaff. Try the prosciutto scallops and shrimp risotto with a glass of red wine.

    Carciofi con Finocchio is a great starter dish. The flavors meld together well.

    The menus been updated and everything's $1-2 more expensive. That being said, I would go back if I was in the neighborhood. Very tasty.

    Great low-key Italian food spot. Delicious & inexpensive. Get the pasta. Any pasta.

    It's fine. Not great, not bad, just fine. The carafe of wine is a bit too much for two, quantity wise.

    Cash only.

    Charming neighborhood Italian spot. Good homemade pasta, but the kitchen could stand to use more salt.

    Serious Eats · November 15, 2013
  • Carl

    Totally overrated. Don't get the "grilled" octopus (slimy and soft) or the scallops with asparagus purée (scallops seemed boiled and purée was flavorless).

    Carl · October 13, 2013
  • Angela

    Try the pannecotta!! To die for! Homemade pasta is the bomb!

    The food here is so good, you'll want to kiss your waiter. Impossible to go wrong, but I love love love the papardelle with lamb ragu.

    Wait for the lasagna to cool off before eating it, even if you're really hungry- it's hot!

    Cavatelli with goat cheese, mushrooms and butter sauce is delicious. Sit outside if weather permits. Crema Catalana for dessert.

    Best brunch! The $14 prefix gets you coffee, a mimosa, entree, & side. Got a frittate w/ the arugula artichoke heart salad and left there happiest bruncher alive.

    The homemade pastas are all served perfectly al dente. The truffle oil/squash tortellini is a hit with my mom. The waitstaff is charming and speaks with a Italian accent. And the price? Unbeatable.

    The burratina pugliese is amazing. Also, say hi if you know me!

    The arugula salad with figs, pecorino, pine nuts, strawberry and truffle vinigrette plus the butternut squash tortelli is one of the most amazing meals I've ever had and I'm a carnivore! Delicioso!!!!
