Ribalta is a big space in an area that’s definitely not short on restaurants, and yet it rarely ever has room for walk-ins. Probably because it’s a fun group dinner spot that’s convenient for everyone and not too expensive. The Neapolitan pizza is pretty good, there are a bunch of bottles of wine for around $40, and during the day, they project soccer matches on the wall.

Off the main stretch in Williamsburg is Aurora, a place charming enough for a First/Early in the Game Date, calm enough for Dinner with the Parents, and with an insane, well-greened Outdoor/Patio Situation.
Pasta Al Forno
Pasta Al Forno is different from most West Village Italian spots. It’s tiny and BYOB, and it’s a great place to have unexpectedly good baked pasta.
