Pizza on the roof

Any Brooklyn resident or visitor knows that there is no shortage of pizza restaurants here. However, there is L’isola, which is worth a mention for it’s wood fired pies.

Named after their home island of Sicily, the family-owned restaurant opened in 2012 in the heart of north Williamsburg offering the neighborhood a robust selection of Sicilian cuisine that will appease a variety of Italian food fans, from the appetizer to the main course. What’s particularly enticing is their pizza crust: thin, crispy, airy (yes, they offer a gluten free option) and crafted right in front of you if you’re seated at the bar enjoying a glass of wine from their cellar collection.

The classic Pizza Margherita (fresh mozzarella and tomato sauce) and Arucola e/Parmigiano (Margherita topped with fresh arugula and shaved parmesan) are great start starter pizzas for L’isola newbies, just so you have a basic understanding of how incredibly nuanced and bold their flavors are from the very simple pies, which carry over to the more complex.
The pasta, meat and seafood dishes also do not disappoint. You’d be amazed at what L’isola does with a pork chop and apples (Bracciola di Agnello).

If you happen to be there on a non-humid 60(F) degrees and above day, you should dine on the rooftop deck, complete with a view of the river and the New York City skyline.
The service is friendly and they are open late to cater to the post-movie Nighthawk Cinema crowd.
