Discover Restaurants offering the best Southern-Italian food in Brooklyn, New York, United States. It seems like most folks have a grandmother, great-uncle or some other distant relative that used to live in Brooklyn, or perhaps a friend that lives there now. In the early 1900s, it was a mecca for immigrants arriving via Ellis Island. A hundred years later, young professionals and artists left pricey Manhattan digs for Brooklyn's cheaper and more expansive space. Neighborhoods like Brooklyn Heights and Park Slope, which had fallen into disrepair over the years, were restored and reborn as funky enclaves. Walk or bike over the historic Brooklyn Bridge (or ride the subway) to Brooklyn Heights for a stroll along the Promenade and breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline. Meander through Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens for a taste of nature in the urban wilds. Catch a performance at the world-famous Brooklyn Academy of Music. From the delicious Italian restaurants of Bensonhurst to the Irish bars that line the avenues of Bay Ridge, from the hotdogs and rollercoasters of Coney Island to the bagels and handball courts of Greenpoint, Brooklyn is a state of mind as well as a dynamic community. Discover why, no matter where people move on to, they remain Brooklynites at heart.

After reading the reviews I had high expectations. The wine recommendations were excellent but the waiter was a bit pushy recommending too much food! We had a seafood/veggie combo appetizer and the Sicilian rice balls. Be prepared for fish and shrimp complete with heads and eyes. My sister did not like her grilled seafood plate, it looked a little too fresh from the sea. The pastas were good but a bit too al dente. Super loud once it fills up, can't really have a conversation. Next time I'll try somewhere else. Cute little place and Spring Street is a fun area for strolling.

This place in Little Italy ranks quite well on TripAdvisor for places to eat so we thought it was a safe bet for lunch. We were seated quickly but when the food arrived the pizza base was very salty, burnt in places and weâd finished it by the time our side orders of fries arrived. There is only one toilet which is located at the back by the bins and kitchen area. Wish weâd kept on walking and found somewhere else instead.

This place is amazing! The real deal! I have never found a better restaurant in NYC! This is now my absolute favorite! Truly authentic food. Not only the most authentic Pizze Napolitane I've ever eaten (and rivals with some I've eaten actually IN Napoli) but pastas and appetizers are all unbelievably authentic and great quality. The entire restaurant has a feeling of love. Love for food, love for customers, love for life! I love this place!!! All the guys who work here have a wonderful sunny and friendly disposition and really understand customer service. They seem to love their customers and strive to make each customer feel special. With so few tables and such quality I hate to reveal these truths about the place and let out the secret because I always want to find "my table" and "my spot" here and return to find the same quality, prices, authenticity. Somehow I have a feeling this won't change. This place reminds me of how NYC used to be. This is old NY at its best. It's a great great place and if you've actually eaten in Napoli you will appreciate it even moreso. This place....!!! I love it!!! Special thanks to Luca/Lucca (?) for running the show and doing it so well!!!

This is a tiny place on Prince Street. It can be a little noisy with everyone being seated very close to each other, but it's tolerable. We had bruschette for an appetizer. It was the classic version with olive oil and tomatoes and was awesome. Three of us had lasagna, and the fourth person had penne with tomato sauce and basil. They have a lava cake that isn't on the menu, and the two who had it were fans. All of the food was excellent. Reservations have to be made a month in advance and are recommended. However, there were a few folks who came without reservations after 8 p.m. who were able to be seated. Prices are pretty low for food of this quality.

Excellent food, excellent service, very small, crowded, noise level high. We picked a delightful Italian wine, ordered two appetizers, the arancini and a special appetizer which was a bruschetta with burratta and octopus. They both were very good and the portions were Hugh, we certainly only needed one. For entrees we enjoyed Tagliatelle wild boar ragu and a special squid ink pasta with seafood. Make a reservation you will have a wonderful time.

Sottocasa has some of the best of New York pizza. An ideally-sized meal at this venue can cost around $25-$30
