Gran Sasso

OPENED1060 DAYS AGO

Gran Sasso is a new Italian restaurant in Williamsburg with a menu headed up by Michelin-starred chef Luca Casadio.

Formerly of Italy’s, La Smarrita in Torino, Casadio is aiming to bring high-quality and authentic Italian cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere to the people of Williamsburg. The new spot is a welcome addition to this part of town. While other new spots in Williamsburg have been popping up in the form of retro burger stands with Mister Dips at The William Vale and pastries made by Michelin-starred chefs at Butler, Gran Sasso is just the pizza joint this part of town has been looking for.

Named after a mountain range in Abruzzo, Italy, the menu at Gran Sasso offers up classic Italian fare with stylish and innovative presentation. Options like asparagus served with a parmigiano-reggiano “fondue” or seared yellowfin tuna served on a bed of vegetables and passion fruit oil start off the menu. Larger main courses follow covering every meat from steak, chicken and lamb chops to John Dory and red snapper. A selection of house made pastas are not to be missed and include a linguine nere (squid ink) whilst a variety of pizzas ranging from $14-$19 are also available.

The decor at Gran Sasso looks as a traditional trattoria should – with brick peaking out from behind yellowed walls, dark wooden tables and chairs and even wine barrels have been used to fashion into chairs at select tables too. Gran Sasso is also open for brunch and serves a range of salads and pastas as well as egg dishes and French toast. For $23 they offer a cocktail with two courses so no doubt this spot will be receiving some overspill from the Smorgasburg-goers across the street on the weekends.
