Beautiful patio and not so inviting interior space but the food is not so good and its hard to imagine how can pasta taste so bad but their brick oven pizzas are very decent and the location is very convenient, right off the L train Bedford stop but I'd rather eat at Aurora or even Oregano if looking for decent...

I have walked by this restaurant many times and loved the greenhouse-like interior. After reading positive reviews online, I figured it would be a great place to take my mother for brunch for her birthday. I know most reviews are about dinner and not brunch, but I'm not sure how a restaurant so well regarded for its food could so... More

What a beautiful place this is! You step into a four season garden (it can be closed and covered during cold weather, it can be open in the warmer months) that is adorable, with lots of little, funny things to discover. And then the food, delicious authentic Italian food. Yes, you can eat wonderful Italian food everywhere in this city... More

We had an irish waiter who found it far too funny that we were English and out of the world cup. At one point we found him a little offensive. Food was great though - the best calzone I've ever had

Took my girlfriend here for lunch on a whim and we loved it - came back again and it is now one of our favorite spots. Food is great and atmosphere is antique and down to earth. They even gave us a glass of Lemoncello which was very nicely done!

What this place has going for it is location and ambiance. Beyond that the food is adequate but nothing amazing. You can tell even with the ambiance it is a little tired looking. When asked about the house red wine the waitress was utterly confused.. "it is like a Merlot or Cabarnet".. umm these are not at all similar. Most... More

No chance I find this place unless I have a 30-something niece in Brooklyn who I've asked to find an Italian restaurant. My wife, daughter and myself drive at night from our hotel by JFK to this place on the westside of Brooklyn by following the GPS, we have no idea where we are. We find a parking spot right... More

I have eaten there twice and each time I was not disappointed, you truly feel like you are transported to Italy and eating in an outside garden, only you are inside,lovely at night. The food is very good and not pricy, great tasting food and well presented.

Really excellent food and environment. The position is definitely a little costly, but would make a excellent way to go on a date. Amazing Med sea recipes and rice. The breads they bring out before is also great! If you get bottles and a food, be ready to spend $25-$40 on one person. It's definitely a deserving position to check... More
