About this place
Locanda Vini e Olii opened in 2001 and quickly established itself as one of the most authentic Tuscan restaurants in NYC. Housed in a landmarked apothecary on a quiet corner in Brooklyn's Clinton Hill, this quintessential neighborhood restaurant features a menu full of ancient Florentine recipes using local and sustainable ingredients. Chef/owner Michele Baldacci (who also owns Camillo in Prospect Lefferts Gardens) was born and raised in Florence, and makes everything in house: from the Tuscan bread, to the pasta, to the desserts. Along with a full bar featuring a variety of spritzes and negronis, Locanda Vini e Olii boasts an impressive all-Italian wine list of hard-to-find varietals from some of the Italy's top wine producers. Save the cost of a plane ticket and treat yourself to a true Tuscan experience right here in Brooklyn.

Beautifully set in an old pharmacy in Clinton Hill - Italian cooking is good but not exceptional
