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.

Off the main stretch in Williamsburg is Aurora, a place charming enough for a First/Early in the Game Date, calm enough for Dinner with the Parents, and with an insane, well-greened Outdoor/Patio Situation.
Pasta Al Forno
Pasta Al Forno is different from most West Village Italian spots. It’s tiny and BYOB, and it’s a great place to have unexpectedly good baked pasta.
