va beh', new Italian in Park Slope

chowbie | Jan 27, 201201:59 PM     2

I guess va beh' is counting on discerning types frequenting the new Nets stadium--it is a stone's throw away (Dean and Flatbush) and has big glass shutters it can throw open for a glorious stadiumside view. Anyway, discerning b-ball fans will indeed get simple but well-executed Italian food if they venture there. It's tiny but adorable--house wine taps set into the marble wall, wooden tables, lovely Italian staff in flannel shirts. The food was very good. Artichoke crostini was to die for, and the rotating special pastas were fresh and delicious (pappardelle with rabbit was particularly good). The menu is limited, the wine choices less so, and it wasn't too expensive (though the sides and apps can add up quickly). Service was eagerly attentive. Overall, a very enjoyable new addition to the 'hood. (Side note: my husband thought from the outside it was soul food, thinking the name meant "Virginia Beach"! but it's the Italian expression for "It's all good.")
