Barboncino is the go-to sit-down pizza place in Crown Heights. Think of it as the Roberta’s of the area, but less crowded. The pizzas are Neapolitan-style (thin, chewy, a little burnt) and they come in a handful of red and white varieties. There are also salads and a few small plates, and the space is big and family-friendly.
