About
Barano is South Williamsburg's wood fired seasonal Italian restaurant by Chef Albert Di Meglio. Chef Di Meglio's seasonal menus adapt old world cooking techniques to modern tastes, using our open kitchen's wood-burning oven and open-fire grill. All of Barano's pastas are made on-site and by hand. Our mozzarella is also made in house, hand pulled, and served à la minute.
