Description

Village Voice's Description

Billed as a proscuitteria, Ballaro specializes in the glories of pig legs. Two classic Italian prosciuttos on the menu, and it's fun to taste them side by side--those pink slices ribboned with silken fat have layers of flavor that seem to go on for miles, unfolding one after the other. Pig legs also show up in other incarnations, such as parmacotto, an Italian baked ham, and speck, a German smoke-cured ham. Besides its meat and cheese platters, Ballaro offers excellent Lavazza coffee, sandwiches on foccacia or semolina bread, and a selection of antipasti and crostini. Don't miss the frisella crostini--a crusty round of bread softened with a sprinkle of cold water and olive oil--topped with a garlicky mass of tomato and basil. The sandwiches are uniformly good.
