“Roberta’s literally put Bushwick on the map: before Roberta’s very few people were venturing out to this corner of Brooklyn. Opened in 2008, Roberta’s still has the best pizza around. They don’t take reservations and you should be prepared to wait. Our favorite item on the menu is the Bee Sting Pizza, featuring spicy soppressata with a drizzle of honey.”

“Amazing pizza featuring artwork outside by Shantell Martin. Great atmosphere with a cocktail bar attached. This popular Italian restaurant and bakery serves up top-notch pizzas with a number of creative combos on offer, like the coppa & carcoifi, with hot coppa and roasted spicy artichokes. Appetizers include grilled octopus, pickled sardines with grilled polenta, and meatballs, while a tight edit of pastas and mains complements the pizza selection. There’s also a bar down the block, opened in 2015. that serves up small plates, solid cocktails, and a place to wait for a table at the OG restaurant. In the summertime, there’s usually a cart outside serving up gelato. ”

“Always full, very buzzy spot. Although the burgers are good, we feel this spot is pretty touristy. So if you're trying to avoid those kinds of places, best to know that. Otherwise, if you're down for the wait, you'll likely have a good or decent meal here. ”
