Straight from the Trastevere district of Rome (which incidentally when I visited over the summer I was told is the Williamsburg of Rome), the family owned restaurant, Antica Pesa (which has been around since 1922!), has opened it’s second location in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. If you love authentic, el denti Italian food add Antica Pesa to your list of must tries.
Dim lighting, great wine, the restaurant was buzzing last night with Italiens and Manhattanites alike. The decor was just enough model meets rustic to give the room a homey feel and the tall ceilings and large entrance windows gave the room a great openness.
Antica Pesa, 115 Berry Street, Brooklyn. For more information visit anticapesa.com
