Old style Italian

Great Bushwick location and the food was very good. Definitely want to sit on the back patio when it is open. The house wine is very good and a great value. We had 2 carafe's of the Sangiovese and might have been the best wine of the trip. Certainly the best value. The Coconut pannacota was... read more

The last time I ate there was in the dead of winter so I didn't know there was a patio! Ask for the patio when the weather suits outdoor dining! We shared the arugula salad with pears and the orange dressing is soooo good, tagliatelle bolognese was just like Mama makes, and the fish special was light and tasty!

This was an accidental find, and we have never had better. Only regret we didn't have room for dessert!

One of our favorite restaurants. The food and prices are excellent. The wait staff is pleasant and accommodating. Try the piadini.

We walked to one of the best Italian restaurants, bar none! Small, dark-lit joint with great ambience. The rucolo (arugula) and watercress salads were perfectly prepared! Before kale, there was arugula, lettuce, etc. Well, they do have a kale salad but that's to please the native hipsters. The best entrée was the tagliatelle al Ragu Bolongnese! The Pappardelle con Angnello... More

This is a small neighborhood place--but very convenient to the subway. It's a veritable bargain for NYC and good food to boot. My son, who had lived nearby, recommended it--says he always had a good meal there. We were so glad we took him up on his recommendation. The octopus appetizer was especially good. I thought their house wine was... More

We were visiting Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn and went on suggestion of our host. Tiny place,we did not have a reservation(which I strongly encourage) but they accommodated us nevertheless on a crowded night. The homemade penne pasta was a rustic meal with a superb basil pesto. Some of best mussels I have had anywhere. Leave your credit cards at home,... More

My son took us to this restaurant recently and it was delicious. It's like your grandmothers house with seating in her back yard. Lots of umbrellas for shade. Service was great and food delicious. The calamari was grilled and tender and tasty. Mussels also a must. All pasta dishes were delectable. Nice inexpensive prices for Brooklyn. Would go there on... More

Great Friday evening meal with my wife... Very attentive service but maybe because we were there quite early, but still was very helpful and on the ball. The pasta was great and really outshines whatever was on it really, so stick to something simple and you're in for a great meal at a modest price. Kale salad was a pleasant... More

I have been to Il Passatore many times since they opened. I actually think they get better and better- the food is very good with special unique favors- especially nice on a cold night or in the summer for dinner in their backyard. I would highly recommend any of the pasta and appetizers especially the brussel sprouts, tortellini and ragu.... More
