“A little gem in Brooklyn”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

A little neighbourhood gem we stumbled upon after walking along the promenade to take pictures of the Brooklyn Bridge. Small place, small and focused menu. Excellent service and food presentation. A simple request to the chef for risotto with seafood resulted in a tailor made meal that was tasty, fresh and interesting. Desserts to die for - and unique. Too bad I live on the other side of the continent, otherwise I would go back.

“Excellent, authentic Italian food in Brooklyn Heights”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

Very good food and service. We had the branzino with pancetta, asparagus, and Brussels sprouts and it was wonderful. We also tried the homemade pasta with sausage and broccoli rabe (also delicious). Good wines and very nice Italian-speaking staff. The music was also excellent. Portions are on the small side. Would come back.

“Amazing”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Just amazing, What else can I say?. Friendly and passionate crew, great knowledge about what they are going to serve (both food and wine) and correct prices. I liked also a lot the atmosphere. These Italian guys are doing a really good job.

“Lucky Brooklyn Heights Residents”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

We came across this restaurant after walking over Brooklyn Bridge on Columbus day. Whilst perusing the menu we spoke to two young Irish girls who lived in Brooklyn Heights, they highly recommended it. It was full at the height of lunchtime and we returned an hour or two later.
With a local clientele the atmosphere was very pleasant, the service was very good and friendly.
The food was, what you might hope for in an Italian Restaurant in New York City, but don't always get. An excellent local for the lucky people (in many ways) of Brooklyn Heights. I assume by the crowd at lunchtime, that booking ahead is a sensible precaution. This place will not disappoint, no pretensions, only good food and service - enjoy. Well worth negotiating the crowds crossing the bridge on a sunny fall day for.

“Great authentic Italian food and wine”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

This is my new favorite place to eat! It's very sophisticated and cozy at once. It's a very nice place to go on a date night or just out with friends. The location in Brooklyn Heights is convenient to MTA and other shops. The food is incredible and authentically Italian; the Italian wine was really quite amazing! Among other things, the service was excellent! Enjoy!
