If you’re looking for a place in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens where you can sit with a friend or a date and eat a plate of carbonara, Camillo is a good option. It’s a nice neighborhood Italian spot with brick walls, dim lighting, and a little dining room that tends to stay pretty full. They serve a few pastas like cacio e pepe and bucatini all’Amatriciana, although the real reason you come here is Roman-style pinsas, which are essentially pizzas on airy, focaccia-style bread. Get one of those, and be sure to have a cocktail or two. They make some great ones here, and there’s also a big bar up front where you can sit and eat a full meal.
