Fodor's Expert Review Bar Corvo

$$ Prospect Heights Italian

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

On the Crown Heights–Prospect Heights border (corvo means "crow" in Italian, as in Crow Hill, this area’s old name) and a stone’s throw from the Brooklyn Museum, this handmade-pasta specialist is an offshoot of Park Slope’s renowned al di là. Like its sibling, Bar Corvo offers rustic decor alongside refined starches and salads—squid-ink spaghetti with octopus, malfatti gnocchi with walnuts, and an impeccable warm farro salad (the fried spicy chickpeas, billed a “snack,” are highly addictive). For weekend museumgoers, Bar Corvo’s brunch is a refined alternative to Tom’s more casual diner fare up the block.
