We ate here a few nights ago and I have to say the first reaction is to how crowded the place already is - especially where managers are standing and advising big groups of guests and that means all the servers keep bumping into your...More

Best Amatricana I've ever tasted. The cacio e Pepe could have more cheese - a bit light on the sauce. The pasta is definitely al dente but bordering on under cooked. Some in my party found it decidedly under cooked. Beautiful decor, inviting cocktail chesterfield...More

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.
