We needed to get off of Long Island and Naked Dog did the trick. Tucked away right near the water in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, this place was a find. Very cool vibe but quite noisy. Beautiful lighting and great looking and busy bar.
We started with a grilled octopus app that was so different, but so good. The delicious, soft and succulent octopus was over smashed potatoes. We then both ordered a fresh pasta dish. Mine was Fettuccini noodles with sliced portobello mushrooms. She got huge wide noodles with meat sauce. The fresh pasta was amazing on both.
I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Had dinner with Hubs, just got back from a work trip and wanted a sweet, chill dinner and a glass of wine. Really amazing food, excellent service, and stellar wine pours. I've been here a few times and every time its been perfectly delish, and service has been spot on. Highly recommend.

Nice little neighborhood place. Easy to park at. A little outdoor seating, if you like. Good service except at times a little too pushy. But still good. Prices and selections of food were good. Will be back to try thr other great pastas.

This pasta really matched the hype!! Very impressed with the level of quality and depth of flavor and texture. Breads were also all very good. Octopus was served perfectly. Mussels in the tomato sauce were also incredibly good (we ordered extra bread to use to dip even though we were stuffed :)) the Matre’D was also very polite, friendly, and hospitable. He offered multiple good recommendations and although he seemed to at some point spill something all over the front of his shirt, he played it off very well!!

Will definitely be returning.

Absolutely amazing restaurant. From the physical appearance and decor, the ambiance, the staff and of course, the food: everything is literally as good as it gets. Owner Cecilia and her staff go so far above and beyond to make sure that not a single detail is overlooked for your experience dining with them. The food is as good as any I've ever had anywhere and the restaurant itself is so perfectly placed in the great Greenpoint. We started with the crispy eggplant and burrata, watermelon salad and a side of the cauliflower; then shared the short rib with polenta and a side of fries. Finished it off with the olive oil cake. Everything was a 10. Bartender truly has a passion for what he does as the cocktails are masterful- suggest giving the KEEP OAXACAN a try- it's superb. Same goes for the food. The waiters placed knives on the table to accompany the short ribs- we didn't even pick these knives up. The meat is THAT tender. Flavorful beyond measure too. And the portion sizes are really impressive. I'm still thinking about the crispy eggplant and burrata and how much I loved it. The olive oil cake was the perfect ending to a perfect dinner. Can't wait to return to try all of the house made pasta! Recommend Naked Dog with the utmost enthusiasm. Won't surprise me at all when this restaurant is recognized with Michelin stars... plural.

Bar and table service is great, very attentive and knowledgeable. Drinks and wine is good. The food is fresh and delicious. The only change needed is the focaccia bread portion needs to be larger.

Naked Dog is one of our favorite places in the neighborhood! The food is always excellent and the service is too. They were super accommodating of two young children and a baby/stroller.

Absolutely an easy recommendation for Italian food in Greenpoint. The staff is more than friendly, the location is nice (especially on the patio with good weather) and the food is incredible. We shared the duck, ravioli and then I went back the next night for the bolognese. I can’t pick one to recommend because all three were just so good. The bolognese is the dish that will make me a frequent visitor, though.
