Scottadito Osteria Toscana Brooklyn Reviews
Scottadito Osteria Toscana Sep 20, 2009
Treading a mildly awkwardly placed iron incline, past an iron gate door, and behind a heavy curtain, there is semi-hidden off Scottadito.
There are sponged terra-cotta affected walls, exposed brick, iron drop lights, and large photos of vintage Italian posters.
Past the bar, and a dark corner for intimate engagements, there is a larger room, the end which is part solarium that opens to a rock garden. The tables of rough hewn wood encourages the the image of rustic Tuscan restaurant, though the clientele are Park Slopers: liberals, hipsters, and artistic types.
I arrived with friends for Sunday brunch with the lure of unlimited mimosas, champagne, and coffee to complement my Uova Benedette for $14.95. The two poached eggs were slightly lacking in the pesto sauce, though the bread still retained a nice crispness despite the sauce and spinach sitting on top. The mixed greens on the side had a light but still flavorful dressing, and the potatos were my favorite part of the dish. The others also enjoyed their meals: Steak and scrambled eggs, Prosciutto Cotto Omelette, and Uova Fiorentino.
The mimosas were refilled often; to the point where my friend became tipsy, her glass slipping from her hands and ice shattering on the table and floor but luckily not the glass itself which was caught in time. This is a caveat of having alcohol with a lush though.
The free bread was very good, nothing was left by the time the meal ended. The same could not be said of the accompanying tomato-based sauce. It was nothing to rave about.
The service was attentive, and it seemed the other customers were happy with their meals as well. It should be noted that Scottadito's is very family friendly with a children's brunch and changing room in the bathroom.
Brunch was a lovely affair this Sunday, I will most definitely return.
