Baci & Abbracci

204 Grand St. Brooklyn, NY 11211 | Brooklyn | 718-599-6599

Location Description:

This wonderful Italian restaurant extends our pasta frontiers by making gnocchi with polenta, rather than the usual potatoes, semolina, or bread crumbs, then saturates them with a scrumptious rabbit ragu, shot with black peppercorns like punctuation in a lengthy paragraph. The beet-dyed potato gnocchi called violette di parma are similarly excellent. There's also a flavorful squid salad, a wood-oven calzone bulging with fresh mozzarella, and a pork chop laved with rosemary-scented gravy. Best of all is the namesake pizza baci & abbracci ("hugs & kisses"), littered with caramelized onions and gobs of pancetta.
