Cozy, Casual, Low-Key Italian in Park Slope/Brooklyn Heights for Valentine's Day?

hiddenboston Feb 4, 2010 06:04 PM

So my GF and I are going to be in Brooklyn on Valentine's Day and hope to hit a restaurant somewhere around Park Slope or Brooklyn Heights. I'm thinking of Italian food--nothing fancy or formal, just a laid-back casual place with good food and some nice atmosphere. Any suggestions? Thanks!

      For classic red-sauce italian (maybe a touch updated from that), I recommend Mulino Ristorante (formerly Trattoria Mulino). My favorite for that style of italian in the neighborhood.

      Is there a reason carroll gardens isn't an option? assuming youre getting around via subway the f train connects the two neighborhoods you've mentioned, and gives you lots more options.

      i havent explored much, but enjoyed a low-key (and fairly casually valentine's appropriate) dinner at fragole recently, and there are MANY reviews of spots in CG on the boards.

        +1 there, Fragole sounds like just the place.

          Thanks for the suggestion. I've heard good things about Fragole. It looks like we may do that.

          Thanks to everyone else for your suggestions as well!
