Amorina Cucina Rustica

This boutique-style pie place, which opened in March 2005, is owner Albano Ballerini’s second venture in the area, located directly across the avenue from his Aliseo Osteria del Borgo. Chef Ruth Kaplan prepares thin-crusted Roman-style slices with a variety of topping combinations, including sun-dried tomato pesto and salami, or mushrooms, sweet tomatoes and sausage. Every other week, Kaplan introduces a new “will to live” pie, which are novelty pizzas like the “Pizza alla Norma” with eggplant, ricotta salata, cherry tomatoes and fresh basil. Entrees include eggplant Parmesan, lasagna or rigatoni with olives and rosemary. The funky dining room adds to the experience, with vintage wallpaper and 12 different styles of chandeliers.

Where: 624 Vanderbilt Avenue, Brooklyn N.Y 11238
