Osteria Il Paiolo
This homey, spacious spot brings Northern Italian bites to North Williamsburg, with a focus on freshly baked bread and homemade pasta. It's a welcome addition to North Sixth Street—New American spot Sweetwater and Thai palace Sea are just a stone's throw away, so score one for diversification! Good luck choosing among those pastas—they're an appetizing bunch: pappardelle with wild boar ragu, fettuccine with pig cheek, penne with mussels and sea urchins. And if you're a polenta fan, they offer four types, including one with quail. Admire it while seated at one of the quaint tables that bedeck this pretty, brick-and-mirror'd space.
