Village Voice's Description

Founded in 1939, and obscurely located, Colandrea New Corner is a Dyker Heights institution, a red-sauced place espousing the ideals of Italian-American cuisine. That means you should probably eschew the higher-end entrees of veal and chicken (often layered with cheese and prosciutto) in favor of the pastas (baked pastas, especially) and appetizers. An exception to this rule is chicken cacciatore (bone-in version, of course), but otherwise you should regale yourself with the wonderful lasagna (with an extra pile of meat on top), or baked ziti in the Sicilian or Sorrentine style. Anything with clams (raw or cooked) makes a wonderful app, as does the mozzarella in carrozza ("in a carriage")- the best toasted cheese sandwich you've ever had.

    Best Italian in Brooklyn. Ignore the comment below. This place is great. I've been going here for years. My family has been going here for generations. Food is excellent. Fried calimari is a must.

    My wife's family has been a frequent diner since the 1940' and I have been coming here regularly for more than 20 years.... love this place. It's worth the drive from Central NJ on any occasion!

    Truthfully avoid the place. I rarely ever leave negative comments, but the food here borders on inedible, and isn't cheap. It's an 'Old School' Italian joint, that is clearly coasting on a reputation

    The good was delicious and also. Our service was perfect.

    My favorite Italian Restaurant. Love going for the live music on Thursday nights - such a nice way to enjoy a meal with friends and family. The homemade ravioli and fettuccine are out of this world.
