I lived in the Greenpoint Section of Brooklyn, NY for over 30 years of my life and continue to return there from NJ. While there are the usual great traditional places to dine and they continue to be excellent, La Piazzetta is relatively new (about 10 years in existence) but has really become a Top Quality destination. I find it to be especially accommodating for large family gatherings during a holiday or special event.
Personally, I love a place that if I really can't find something that interests me on their menus, the chef is willing to create something special for me. Well, that is the case here and they have never disappointed me. The veal is very tender, the fish very fresh, the bread very crunchy and they do wonders with chicken as well, The change is primarily due to the owner getting creative with the menu selections as well as the chef really kicking it a notch.
Give it a try as they are reasonably price for the quality you will receive.
