“great pasta near a great point of view of new york”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014 via mobile

we were walking in brooklyn in a very quiet street a little before 7 and saw this restaurant that was full of people that seems to live here. sz went to see the view of new york in the park near the shore and found out that it would be nice to eat here and come back to see the view again at night
the restaurant was perfect and the pasta delicious and creative. I asked the waitress if the cook was italian and it seems that he has italian family ;-)
we were in roma 2 years ago and it reminded us of the pasta there !

“Hmm...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

I was expecting great neighbourhood Italian fare, a lazy Sunday afternoon lunch. Maybe it's the fact I'm European but I found that to only have brunch as an option on Sunday was very limiting. The food in itself wasn't notable and overall I found the experience to be blah.

“Very good restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

We had dinner here last night with friends and we all enjoyed our meals
The place has a great local feel to it and while it is not fancy it was very comfortable
The service was excellent and the staff very attentive & pleasant
The restaurant is very small so reservations are a must
The noise level can be high. We sat in the rear which was much quieter so that we were able to both enjoy the food and the company of our friends

“Charming restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

Great food, friendly staff. I went with my dad, and he LOVED the food. He took a picture of the restaurant so that when he goes back he can remember what it was called (lol!). It has a good mix of price points. It was close to the promenade and it was a lovely walk to get to it.

“Tipica gentilezza , stile e sapori italiani”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

Been in Brooklyn for a business trip , i had the chance to dine at River Deli . What a surprise !!!!
Andrea , the owner , and the bar tender were super professional ! Every customer is treated as the very first one : Kindness , professionalism , food freshness , wine selection are their goals ; and they strike !!!!
River Deli is one of those rare places where persons , food and atmosphere create a fantastic combination .....a combination that goes beyond what you see but is more about what you feel .
Is Malloreddus and Trofie alla Carlofortina are unbeatable !!!
Thank you Andrea for making me feel at home .
Hope to be back soon ......very soon .
Andrea
