This restaurant gets very busy on the weekends, but it is well worth a wait! The ambiance is lovely, and our waiter was friendly, attentive, and patient in describing the menu and specials. We shared the mussels, which were large and served in a fabulous sauce. Homemade pasta is excellent here, and we usually opt for the special of the... More

Brooklyners favourite place to dine. Go early to get a table! Cozy interior with lively family-style ambiance. Chef Anna Klinger offers authentic Northern Italian cuisine with plenty of menu options plus daily specials. Share a pasta dish to start (tantalizing butternut squash ravioli when in season), prosciutto layered pork with crushed golden roasties and Brussels sprouts or fresh sea bass... More

On a busy streetcorner in brooklyn sits al di la---actually two of them. One is a standard restaurant with a great brunch menu. We sampled two of the dishes ( polenta with funghi, pork belly hash) and were blown away. Around us others ate pasta, sandwiches and salad, each with a bit of flair. The second al di la adjacent...

Very small restaurant with a nice atmosphere. We had a difficult time choosing from the menu. The mussels in a white wine sauce were very good. The Risotto with quail was exceptional. The kale salad was just right. The ravioli with butternut squash was wonderful. We chose a red blend wine which was very good. We just happened by and... More

On one of our weekend trips to visit our daughter and dine at one of the many wonderful restaurants in Brooklyn, we found Al Di La Trattoria. It was a beautiful day so we decided to walk around the area near her apartment and she indicated that some of her colleagues had said it was terrific. They did not lie... More

I was very impressed with this place, and so I wrote, over a year ago but as the song says "Things they are changing..." I went there again, recently, and was annoyingly surprised - I specifically asked our waiter "How much wine in your "glass of wine"? - which cost there as much as a bottle - and he pointed... More

We were visiting friends who live in Brooklyn and they suggested this restaurant which was a short walk from their apartment and Prospect Park. The food and ambiance was excellent and I would definitely recommend to others.

We went for lunch and had the ragu and the gnocchi. Small plates but superb quality..the ragu is a must on Al di la.
