Saraghina is an Italian restaurant/bakery in Bed-Stuy where you can get a great Neapolitan-style pizza. There’s other stuff on the menu, but that isn’t why you come here. The inside feels like a very nice antique store, and it could easily be converted into a place that sells candles and t-shirts with Rolling Stones logos to people who have never listened to The Rolling Stones. Come for a weeknight dinner or stop by on a Saturday and drink a lot of wine. If it’s nice out, you’ll want to be sitting in the backyard.
