Lunetta of Brooklyn is Crowded and Noisy like Manhattan and Almost as Expensive but has Great Food

Reynold | Mar 31, 200811:33 AM

It’s about the food, which is superb, so it’s well worth a visit. The bruschetta starters, at a very reasonable $4, were mostly savory and delicious: butter beans with rosemary-garlic oil, spicy leeks and pecorino romano (both in photo 1), and tuna conserva with farm egg & capers. Only the lunetta ricotta with honey & lemon, while certainly tasty, seemed more like a dessert item. The pricier fried artichokes with parmesan, herbs, and lemon ($11, photo 2, snapped after 2/3 of the food had been removed) were also superb.

Our entrees included spaghetti carbonara with smoked pancetta ($15, photo 3). The flavors were fantastic, the consistency was perfect, just the right amount of “cling,” but the serving was, shall we say, modest. As was the serving of the linguini with Manila clams and escarole ($16, photo 4).
