Antica Pesa: Visit Rome in Brooklyn

February 22, 2013

- Posted by Richard Fertig


If you're looking for a late-Winter warm-up by way of a finely crafted cocktail enjoyed fireside on a cushy leather couch followed by a feast of authentic Italian cuisine… you might think you'd need to travel all the way to Trastevere to experience the real-deal ambience and fare.

Lucky for us New Yorkers, Rome is right around the corner these days (or across the bridge, for you non-Brooklynites…) That's right -- Rome's celebrated Antica Pesa brought their legendary homemade pasta stateside this past October with their first outpost in Williamsburg, and it's the perfect setting to offset February's chill.

Leather-bound books, brass lighting fixtures and a burnished-wood fireplace set the perfect throwback tone for fine-dining. Chefs Riccardo Rossetti and Patrizia Volanti both apprenticed at the original Antica Pesa in Rome, and the much-lauded Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe lives up to the hype. Order a Negroni to start and finish with Zuppetta di Agrumi (citrus soup with coconut milk, hazelnut wafer and orange sorbet). And in-between? mangia, mangia, mangia! You will not leave disappointed!
