Our favorite Italian food in the city, Il Leone is a bit off the beaten path in Greenpoint and feels like a local hang. They know their pasta and their wines here, and while everything is really good, they don’t take themselves too seriously. Don’t be afraid to ask for help with the wine list - there are a lot of options and unless you’re an expert in South African wines, you’re going to be pretty lost. We’ve never been disappointed with anything we’ve ordered here, but the simple pastas with seafood always hit the spot.
