It is definitely the only Italian restaurant we found in Brooklyn. The flavoured dishes represent the traditional Italian cuisine. They are not like the ones in the Bel Paese but Italian travellers will surely appreciate them

Stumbled across this restaurant while in Park Slope and was not disappointed. The Italian-based food here is reasonably priced and very tasty. The Ricotta Ravioli and Tagliatelle al Ragu were particularly good. Whilst we were seated immediately as it was not crowded on a Sunday afternoon, reservations are recommended.

My husband and I took an opportunity for a quick dinner without the kids before going to a show in Manhattan. Got there 10 mins before 6 and lined up. We only had half an hour before we had to catch a subway nearby. The service was excellent and prompt and most importantly bloody amazing! Rabbit and the fish were... More

The very popular and often crowded Al Di Là Trattoria offers wonderful food in friendly surroundings. Having eaten there several times for brunch as well as dinner, I recently discovered a surprising feature. Because of the waiting time for dinner they offer a wine bar several yards down the street called Al Di Là Bar where you can enjoy a... More

This is a very cute restaurant. I burned my mouth on the soup special because I could not wait for it to cool down. Then, I had the fish special which was also very good. Great service, nice people, super little neighborhood feel.

Every dish we've had here has been amazing. Whenever friends or family come to visit us, we always make a trip here. It's easy to get a table if you come early. The service is always great and prices reasonable compared to similar quality restaurants in Manhattan.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. I love the European style of sitting where you are at a long table with other customers next to you. My wife and I have been many times and love the interaction with other guests. The food is fantastic, I cannot go there without having the Tripe. It is incredible, I have introduced... More
