The original Fornino is in Williamsburg, but their Neapolitan-style pizzas fit in just fine in Brooklyn Heights. This is an excellent alternative to the lines at nearby Grimaldi’s and Juliana’s, and it’s also a much better option for summertime dining. When it’s nice out, there’s a big roof where you can sit and watch the sunset over Manhattan. Toppings here range from asparagus to fennel sausage and soppressata. And if you’re not in the mood for pizza, have a salad, some meatballs, or a prosciutto calzone.
