Pizza: Sam's on court - pizza is best (try a garlic ricotta yum) also veal rollatine and pizziaola are solid.
Italian Store Caputo's: great homemade mozz
Butcher/Deli: Espositos Pork Store, Los Paisanos on smith
Italian: Fragole
Bakery: Mazzola

The New Saint Clair Restaurant.....gone

what a shame. i loved that place. the true brooklyn diner has become a thing of the past- replaced by tourist diners and bad expensive food.i agree that the other diner on smith is not good (how do you screw up an omelette?). Brooklyn feels less and less like brooklyn as each day goes by. if you need a real Greek diner go to astoria - Mike's is an institution.

Nino's No More

From what i've heard its now owned by the Mazzola's people and hopefully they'll run a pizzeria as well as they run a bakery. BTW, if you ever need any information on that part of the neighborhood go get a haircut at Lana's Barber Shop on that same block. its a classic.

Carroll Gardens: New to the neighborhood. . .what are my staples?

for top notch pizza without all the pomp and circumstance go to Sam's on court street..consistently good for as long as i can remember ..in addition to the plain and pepperoni try the garlic- ricotta its killer......for slices, try ninos on union at or fascati in brooklyn heights if you want to take a walk

steak - cross the river to MarkJoseph

wine: in addition to scotto's, if you like italian wine go to the little store on henry st bet sackett and degraw

mazzola hands down for bread
