Great service. We had a reservation for the second seating and were able to drop off a bottle of sake to be chilled prior to our seating. The chef also made some accommodations for those at the seating who didn’t like Cilantro, which was nice for a tasting menu. Courses were paced nicely and the dishes were all really good. Will return in the future.

About the restaurant
D Antan - Vino Naturale e Cucina Italiana - is an authentic Italian Restaurant. Our menu is inspired by traditional recipes from Piedmont, like tajarin, the most popular homemade pasta of the Region or beef Brasato in Barolo wine.

We serve Italian natural wines ALL BY THE GLASS. A consistent selection of “skin contact” wines (also called orange wines) makes our wine list even more special.

Very hip wine bar & osteria in Crown Heights. All Italian natural wines served by the glass. First you tell the staff what you’re in the mood for and then you get to sample some amazing wines. The pastas are authentic and locally sourced. Highly recommend.

We’ve eaten at all the locations of Westville. and their food, service and value are the reasons. Living in NYC we have many choices so if we eat at the same restaurant over and over, you know it is good. The staff has always been courteous and professional, while the ambience is welcoming, considering the fact the locations are in pretty busy parts of the City-DUmBO, Williamsburg, Theater district. The food is delicious and affordable. Salads are big enough to share and thereby able to try many of the entrees. I would highly recommend this restaurant, at any of their locations.
