Was one of the best in the area - never disappointed with anything. Very sad to see it go! The owner said they just wanted to try new things. I will miss this place so much!

Charming and helpful service. The waiter took lots of time and trouble to talk us through the menu and the wines. Interesting and tasty food, but nearly every dish was too salty, even the lemon and poppy ice cream!

I live in California and was visiting family in Brooklyn. We came here last one year ago. It's still quite good. My son and I split the whole roasted chicken for $52. Came with broccoli, stuffed tomatoes and Greek lemon rice. Really a delicious dish. Beware it is made to order so takes at least 30 minutes. My daughter in... More

So you must get the bread and olives to start. Second you should get the bacon. I don't even crave bacon but this place makes it irresistible so I'm sure it seems like crack to someone who already likes bacon. The spaghetti is the staple that I keep going back to. A lot of entree items aren't great and I... More

A friend in Brooklyn wanted to try this - we shared a starters platter which was very nice and they put on an extra piece of bread as there were three of us. Then we all had meatballs - with or without pasta.

Downside: had to wait for close to 30 mins to get a table a few Sundays ago. But the wait was SO worth it. We had a lovely young lady who served us....the head person ( lady) was a little less friendly & kept us waiting when the table we were eventually shown to had been empty for at least... More

The three of us were walking on Court St., Brooklyn, when we needed a "nosh." In we went to Brucie. Not sure if we were there for lunch or brunch but our repast sealed the deal. So what did we have for lunch? Well, the trio shared two asparagus sandwiches. Huh? Yes, you read that right: asparagus sandwiches hooked us.... More

My wife and I are visiting NYC and my son. We asked for good Italian food on our last evening in Brooklyn and we were not disappointed. Beginning with the craft libations to the last dessert, it was the best meal we experienced in the city. The service was superb, the flavors were extraordinary and the evening was so enjoyable....

We had a 15 min wait but the waiter made us very comfortable and hatred favorite dishes and wine ideas with us. I had lasagna for $18 that was great.

I dined here a few weeks ago with my wife and a local friend, while in town for the NYC marathon. We picked this spot on her boss' recommendation since we wanted pasta (carb loading) but also someplace new and fun. We arrived at 5:30 (opening) since they don't take reservations, and didn't want to wait too long since the... More
