Food was excellent. I had the white bean, kale and squid "salad" special. It was phenomenal. My other two guests had great pasta dishes. Dinner was served with fresh baked bread. While the plates weren't too large, they really were plenty big for us and the favors were grand! Would easily go again! One downside, once served, we really didn't... More

Great restaurant. Love the fact that the menu changes daily. Out of all the great park slope restaurants, this one is definitely my favorite.

A birthday dinner for a dear friend was a disappointment. Perhaps the Friday evening noise contributed to a missing casual elegance, small close tables, no table flowers, no flair to make the environment welcoming or memorable. The salad was constructed without fresh flavors. The Beet pasta without flavor and with pasta edges uncooked; the corn pasta was more interesting but... More

My fiancée had dined here with out-of-town friends just once before (five weeks ago). She was eager to bring me out of midtown Manhattan and do the 40 minute subway ride to Park Slope, Brooklyn. So we packed and got out our passports and made the trip-- just kidding about that. Seriously, one doesn't realize what a relief is is... More

What a wonderful menu, staff, and meal. Felt like I was back in Rome. One course and side was better than the next. Make sure to have a glass of the Vin Santo after your meal! UNBELIEVABLE! No reservations. But, everyone was seated quickly.

I dine here 3-4 times a year and am never disappointed by this place. Service is always on point, food always comes out in a timely manner (despite how busy this place gets) and is executed well. Always leave, looking forward to coming back...

My husband and I were going out for a belated quiet anniversary dinner. This was the perfect neighborhood place to go, small, quaint and with excellent service. The food is very good although not great. The portions are too generous for the size plates so it was hard to keep from spilling when cutting my veal chop. This was stacked... More

This Italian restaurant caters to locals and is popular,no reservations accepted. Pleasant Service. Uneven food however , my asparagus starter quite good,followed by an average chicken. My wife had an ordinary salad to start ,then a terrible fish of the day. Good bread and wine by the glass.

We enjoyed the experience of dining at Al di la Trattoria, whilst visiting Brooklyn last year. The wine list was good, ambience and service welcoming. We walked in without a booking, which was not a problem. The Seppia and oxtail, which was stewed cuttlefish served on a bed of creamy polenta was superb, as was the Peking duck with grapes.... More

Excellent Italian food, great wines. We were lucky to get a table as walk-inns, better to make a reservation. I would go here again.
