Italian
Italian for 'kisses and hugs', baci&abbracci's Neapolitan-style pizzas and "fresh", "homey" dishes merit the trip on the L. The white-washed walls of this modern Williamsburg trattoria boasts a small bar, while the sun-kissed garden is an "enticing escape." Neighborhood folk love the bread, mozzarella and pasta which are made fresh daily. Your first order of business: Ordering a Peroni or glass of Italian wine. Then dig into belly-warming dishes like calamari, red beet and goat cheese gnocchi, and wood-fired pizzas (Time Out New York's Best New Pizza Joint 2007) . Finish off with the torta della nonna, with custardy sabayon, chocolate cream piping, and crushed, toasted pistachios. As delicious as the food, is the "exceedingly friendly" staff.

Went there to celebrate a birthday and it was a great time! The meatballs and the carpacio salad are a must! Definitely will be returning.

Lovely garden section. Meals were all excellent and we were just in Italy last month! Better than most meals we had there. No misses including the rosemary foccaccia. Wine list had good choices and reasonably priced. Service was down to earth and it seemed almost like a family affair. Don’t bother with dessert. They give you sugared donuts gratis!

Everything was wonderful. However, the prices they have online are a decent amount less than what they charge at the restaurant which was disappointing.

Every time I come to Williamsburg I try to get to Baci Abbracci for the cioppino. I like to start with calamari. Both are outstanding and reasonably priced. A glass of house Chianti and a shared dessert completes the meal.

The manager (or man who was the host?) was extremely rude. They sat us 40 minutes after our reservations and when we asked why it took so long, he said "you can sit or leave, I don't care."

To be honest, ruined the evening for us.

It has been a while since we've eaten there (we moved) and I had forgotten just how wonderful this place is. It's a testament that they've been serving the neighborhood for so long. The Violette di Parma - Red beet and goat cheese gnocchi with cheese sauce and wild arugula is out of this world. I lovingly refer to it as Purple Gnocchi. The beets are mostly for color, the sauce and texture of the gnocchi are just perfection and the portion is sizable. The service was kind and attentive. Not to mention they have a beautiful outdoor space and a brick pizza oven. We dined with a group of 10 including two 6 year olds and could not have been better taken care of! Can't wait to go back.

I booked this on open table for a large party as I had out of town family coming to visit. I love the area but had never been to or heard of this restaurant. We all loved it. The food was outstanding and the service was also top notch. Ambiance inside was somewhat bland but there is a back yard which makes it even better. Portion size was great and prices were very reasonable. We definitely plan to return!

The service was okay and not over-priced for area, but the food was just meh. The Pizza was the only thing I'd consider eating again; everything else was just lacking in texture and flavor. Mushy eggplant, meaty lasagna with bland sauce and thin pasta. Even the table bread and fries weren't worth eating. Didn't finish anything.

I brought a group here for a surprise birthday dinner and could not have been more pleased with the experience. My reservation was last minute because another restaurant fell through, but they were completely ready for us. When we arrived, tables for our party of 8 had already been arranged together. Our food and drinks came out quickly and our server was sweet and attentive. When I asked that a special birthday treat be brought out for the birthday boy, our server came out with amazing nutella crepe slices with a candle in them, leading us in singing happy birthday. I will absolutely be back and can't thank you all enough for your kindness and excellent service!

Pros: waiter was extremely friendly and “old school” - but he called me “senorita” so that was ominous

They were happy to make my meal vegan

Food came out relatively quickly

Some of the dishes were not bad

The manager took my dreadful pasta off the check

Cons: the waiter took my order and then left, WITHOUT TAKING MY BOYFRIEND’S ORDER. It took about three minutes to flag someone else down so he could order his dinner

The food ranges from “ok” to terrible. The spaghetti sauce I had was definitely out of a can. It was so sweet I couldn’t eat it. My boyfriend’s fish was good according to him, but everything else was just so un-special. Their focaccia bread was a crime. It was basically pita bread with one sprig of rosemary and tasted like nothing. Nothing else was flat out bad, it was just not exceptional at all compared to what else is in the neighborhood.

We have loved this restaurant for years and were looking forward to celebrating Valentine’s Day there. However, from the overpriced mandatory prix fixe menu to the cold food to the long waits between courses to the inattentiveness of our servers, we were extremely disappointed.
