Barboncino was our ideal restaurant. From the mood set by the dim candle lighting, to the friendly staff, to the incredible food (at really reasonable prices!) Barboncino is the ideal date spot. And man do they know how to make a pizza! Can't wait to return next time in the City.

We were looking for a special place to have pizza in Brooklyn during our visit to NYC. This place ranked on the best in the area, so after our visit to the Brooklyn Museum we headed there. The place has a nice bar with original cocktails, including infusioned vodka. Our pizza had caramelized onions, mushrooms and cheese ( no tomato)... More

We were at the Brooklyn Museum for the first time and used tripadvisor to find this restaurant. Excellent pizza. Excellent, friendly service. Good beers on tap. Very convenient location to the museum and to the subway. Was very happy with the experience.

I like this place better than the other "trendy brick oven" pizza joints in Brooklyn. They didn't overdo the alternative/hipster thing and it still feels like you're in a real restaurant ran by grown-ups. The pizza was good to very good, the fior di latte mozzarella being the star of the show. The dough felt a little bland and the... More

I am a Brooklyn resident, life-long NYer, and child of a southern Italian immigrant. With those credentials established, I can say that Barboncino is my favorite pizzeria in NY. Their crust is perfection (just as good as in Napoli), and each an every pie they make is a delicious work of art. Also, the service at Barboncino is the absolute... More

Whoever did the makeover should be complemented as the architecture and all of the little touches were extremely well done without being overdone. Although the pizzas were good they were outclassed by the surroundings.

I can't say it's worth a journey but if you're in the neighborhood this is a great place to eat. Tripadvisor requires reviews to have at least one hundred characters. I enjoyed myself here. We ate a lot of food and I would like to do this restaurant a favor.
