Ortobello’s is a destination-worthy restaurant on Bay Parkway in Mapleton, Brooklyn. The combination of a small dining room covered in old paintings, photographs, and a papier mache nativity scene and warm, friendly service will make you feel like you’re eating at someone’s grandparents’ house. Expect to hear lots of Louis Prima on the sound system while you dig into an order of their mind-blowing mozzarella in carrozza. You’re here for red sauce classics, so we highly recommend an order of their outstanding chicken parm and some penne alla vodka, but don’t hesitate to branch out and order something from the list of specials. Save room for a massive, jiggling square of citrusy ricotta cheesecake for dessert.
