Description: Antica Pesa opened in Rome in 1922 and since then has been run by the same family. After 90 years of success in our country we decide to open this new venue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, to bring to US the experience of our cousine. Menu is a twist on tradition, where classic roman dishes are reworked using local products, mainly organic. We have a wide selection of dished suitable for vegetarian or vegan and also gluten free.

“Surprise!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

While spending a week in the Brooklyn area of New York we stumbled upon Antica Pesa. What a pleasant surprise. We were greeted by one of the principles who got us seated and comfortable and took the time to explain not only the menu, but unique wine list as well.

Each course was explained as it was served and was delicious. The wine that was suggested was wonderful and a perfect compliment to the meal.

Meal was not cheap, but well worth the cost. Should be on your must try list if you are planning time in the Williamsburg are of Brooklyn.

“bit stuffy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

certainly very good but i found the style a bit stuffy for williamsburg - more like the midtown manhattan places though prices are much more reasonable. highlight was the lambchops. menu dichotomous with split between classics and more nouvelle efforts - i suggest stick with the classics here. desserts in paticular would have benefited from more simplicity.
