Graziella's Restaurant Review

: This Fort Greene restaurant has become something of a neighborhood institution. Locals come here for the friendly everyone-knows-your-name service as well as the big-portioned, comforting Italian food. Pizzas, baked in a brick oven, are passable, but not the best option. Instead, try the large bowls of pasta: the gnocchi Gorgonzola, the mountainous lasagna packed with meaty flavor, and the orecchiette pesto, marrying Puglian pasta and Ligurian pesto. The wine list has plenty of affordable Italian vino by the glass.
