Duck into the space labeled Antica Pesa and you are transported into the type of elegance that rarely exists in an area like Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The space is sexy and hip with dim lights and high ceilings. The wait staff loves the restaurant and they are thrilled to tell you all the history of the space and the menu. Food here is Italian, with simple presentation and few ingredients or fuss. You'll find homemade desserts, imported cheeses & olive oils, and farm-to-table ingredients. Pasta is the star here- try the cacio e pepe or the schiaffoni all’amatriciana with guanciale, tomato, pecorino. Great for groups or a romantic date.
