This terra-cotta-tiled trattoria is tended by members of the Manetta clan—the kitchen, which turns out homestyle Pan-Italian eats, is capably supervised by matriarch Filomena. Her wood-burning brick oven produces marvelous crisp-crusted pizzas with toppings like spicy cacciatorini sausage, porcini mushrooms and house-made pesto. The pasta is a triumph: Linguine with four cheeses drips with lush Gorgonzola, mozzarella, fontina and Parmesan—ideal for pre-P.S.1 carbo-loading.

Situated at the bottom of the Pulaski Bridge, on the Queens side, this Italian restaurant was a warm, inviting location for Italian eats.  I had passed this place a week before and saw that is was packed on a Wednesday night.  Went back this past weekend and food was quite tasty.  I had the arugula salad with braesola, and the fettucine bolognese.  Both were delicious and the right portions.  I did not get a chance to try the pizza, but they looked great from what I saw.  Dessert included a tartufo that was giant.
