Aliseo Osteria del Borgo

Tucked in the heart of Prospect Heights since February 2003, this tiny Italian restaurant offers inventive dishes like “lonzino di miale con fichi” (pork loin stuffed with figs). There are also interesting pasta dishes such as the “lasagnette con anatra” (lasagna with duck ragu) with bechamel cream sauce. Check out the cheese selection, and the wine list, much of which hails from the Marche region of Italy, like Aliseo’s owner, Albano Ballerini.

For dessert, try the “panna cotta all’anice,” anise-flavored panna cotta with figs in orange sauce. Open for dinner Tuesday through Sunday, closed Mondays. Garden seating is available, weather permitting.

Where: 665 Vanderbilt Avenue, Brooklyn N.Y. 11238 • Tel: (718) 783–3400
How much: Entrees: $13–$20.
