Pies topped with cherrystone clams, artichoke, and pancetta, or eggplant and zucchini are among more eclectic offerings at Barboncino, Crown Heights’ first Neapolitan pizzeria, named in homage to owner Ron Brown’s toy poodle. The brainchild of indie filmmaker Brown and Paulie Gee’s vet Jon Greenberg, Barboncino’s wood-oven pies hold their own against Brooklyn competitors Roberta’s and Franny’s, and to boot, their appetizers—namely the burrata-stuffed roast peppers and bibb salad—are surprisingly good. Only blocks away from the Franklin Avenue subway stop, Barboncino’s brick-and-wood interior, Edison lighting, and New American design give the restaurant a cozy, unpretentious feel that’s more Williamsburg than Naples, though the reverse is true of the pizza. And despite the deceptively narrow storefront, Barboncino’s dining area sprawls back to accommodate up to 75 patrons.
