My wife and I split an arugula with prosciutto pizza and a Bibb lettuce, walnut and Gorgonzola salad which made for a very nice brunch. The ingredients were fresh and flavorful. The pizza crust was a bit chewy but with a nice wood fired flavor. The beer selection is mundane and they only had about half the 6 or so... More

We had a couple of really tasty pizzas here, perfectly cooked, tasty toppings. Service was really good too, fast and friendly. The restaurant design was cool too, exposed brick and industrial feel with some thoughtful touches. Would have been 5/5 but I'm half Italian and super picky about pizzas-they were really good, but not quite as good as the best... More

This was the perfect end to a 15 mile run on a lightly snowy day. We got there after 2:30 pm and were seated immediately. Nice space, friendly staff. I had the pizza with egg and pancetta. I generally prefer a runny yolk if I have an egg on a pizza. This was cooked through, but spread out on the... More

Simple but good selection of pizzas. Enjoyed it. Be aware it is usually very crowded for a reason! The service was friendly and quick. Looking forward to another visit soon.

A beautiful funky type restaurant. Serving stone oven pizza. The atmosphere was perfect and the pizza was delicious. We enjoyed visiting with our family while enjoying and sharing the pizza out of the stone oven. It was just perfect.

Barboncino was our ideal restaurant. From the mood set by the dim candle lighting, to the friendly staff, to the incredible food (at really reasonable prices!) Barboncino is the ideal date spot. And man do they know how to make a pizza! Can't wait to return next time in the City.

We were looking for a special place to have pizza in Brooklyn during our visit to NYC. This place ranked on the best in the area, so after our visit to the Brooklyn Museum we headed there. The place has a nice bar with original cocktails, including infusioned vodka. Our pizza had caramelized onions, mushrooms and cheese ( no tomato)... More

We were at the Brooklyn Museum for the first time and used tripadvisor to find this restaurant. Excellent pizza. Excellent, friendly service. Good beers on tap. Very convenient location to the museum and to the subway. Was very happy with the experience.

I like this place better than the other "trendy brick oven" pizza joints in Brooklyn. They didn't overdo the alternative/hipster thing and it still feels like you're in a real restaurant ran by grown-ups. The pizza was good to very good, the fior di latte mozzarella being the star of the show. The dough felt a little bland and the... More
