Village Voice's Description
Al Di La’s sister restaurant in Crown Heights may not be perfect, but it’s made itself essential to the neighborhood with its gutsy pasta dishes and big, comforting renditions of roast chicken and pork chops. The kitchen, run by Al Di La alum Carla Martinez, also offers lovely surprises for the adventurous eater, like the fried batons of lamb tongue served with a horseradish-kissed dip. Martinez has a way with Italian-style vegetables too, like a satisfying steak of cauliflower rubbed with capers and salsa verde, perfumed with anchovies. Though things don’t always run smoothly—you’ll find a cold, underseasoned dish here and there, or a distant server—Bar Corvo is a charming place to settle in for dinner with reasonably priced cocktails to boot.
Tips from foursquare
The Aperol Spritz ($9), made of a bitter orange liquor, prosecco and a splash of citrus, brings to mind bocce games in shirt sleeves on a summer afternoon in the Riviera.
The owners of Park Slope's much-loved Al Di Là Trattoria opened this lower-priced northern Italian restaurant in Crown Heights on Thursday.
Tagliatelle al ragu is everything you want out of a pasta dish: cheesy, funky, meaty. The octupus confit pasta was a little too lemony—I would skip.
Get the semolina gnocchi and the spicy chick peas. Trust the wait staff re wine.
You've got to order the spicy chick pea side. Or maybe not if you ever want to eat a canned chick pea again.
