We live in the neighborhood and eat here about once every 2 weeks. The atmosphere is very nice. Warm and welcoming on a quiet corner in Brooklyn Heights. The owners are almost always there to greet diners.
The pappardelle is light and flavorful, the calamari is always crisp and delicious. The meat platter is great and the salads are simple and fresh. The fennel salad is our favorite. The best though are the specials. I have probably had the dorado 5x and it has always been fresh and delicious. When they have the fish stew, it is amazing.
I couldn't be happier to have this restaurant in the neighborhood. It does fill a void. It is tasty, comfortable and has great prices too.
