Rome native Gaspare Villa named his rustic new restaurant after a favorite place in Tuscany. “I used to drive two and a half hours to get there,” he says. The trip to Aurora from Manhattan is much quicker, and well worth it for big bowls of chef Riccardo Buitoni’s maltagliati Bolognese; gnocchetti with fava beans, foraged mushrooms, and pea greens; and kale salad with farro, baby turnips and pecorino. Not to mention, Villa now reaps the biggest benefit of a Brooklyn lease: a huge garden.
