I'm not an Italian although been to Italy twice, and the food feels truly authentic to me.
Mushroom risotto was cooked to perfection with a slight al dente texture. Pizzas from brick oven are thin, crusty with just right amount of toppings.

Another good indicator of authenticity is a lot of Italian language in the restaurant, waiters, chef and guests - they can't be wrong with the place. Neither could you.

Went here to celebrate a birthday. The place's decor is nothing to write home about but the smell of garlic and pizza will lure you in! We ordered the hot antipasto and I have never had such a delicious grilled octopus in my life! I could have just eaten that! My daughter ordered a pizza which was just as good. If you are in Brooklyn, this is a place you must check out!

I am Italian so I do not eat italian very often when I travel but if I am in the neighborhood or even if I am not, I never miss a chance to go to this restaurant.
the place is not super but service and food are up to the best italian standards
wide variety, nice buffet for appetizers, unbelievable pasta and pizzas are good too.
Try the Puttanesca with whatever kind of pasta you like and the choice of wines is decent.
Price is acceptable too
