Carroll Gardens anomaly Calpurnia is both a small-plate Italian bistro and a swank Victorian-style lounge. The carefully rendered space resembles an antique salon complete with upholstered settee, marble sideboard, and rococo tapestry celebrating the twin arts of courtship and song; the generous wraparound bar may be a destination unto itself. Exceptional panini anchor the menu: Crispy bread glistening with olive oil accentuates the taste of prosciutto, serrano, and basil. Faux pizza, closer in scope to bruschetta, comes with an especially succulent tomato base. The restaurant’s centerpiece is an old-world, Spanish-leaning wine list complementing a lengthy roster of cheeses. Fruit sorbets round out the offerings, and the menu helpfully suggests an accompanying wine for each food item.
