If you’re not interested in waiting for a table at Al Di La, or if you want some pasta before a show at The Barclays Center, then head to Convivium Osteria. They serve Italian/Mediterranean food, with a few housemade pastas and some protein-focused entrees, like sea bass and rack of lamb. The basement feels like the wine cellar of an old Italian farmhouse, and eating the braised rabbit with prosciutto on the patio outside will make you feel much farther away than two blocks from the busiest stadium and transit hub in Brooklyn.
