Fiore doesn’t belong to Williamsburg’s crop of old-time red-sauce restaurants, but it still has that lived-in, snug look of a place passed down a few generations. The floor has black and white checkers and the walls weathered brick; the music leans toward softly played jazz; the shelves are decorated with succulents and flea-market finds you’d want in your own home. Opened in 2008, Fiore hasn’t become enmeshed in the neighborhood scene like Diner, Walter Foods, the Commodore, and Pies ’n’ Thighs but is a perfectly good choice for spaghetti and a glass of affordable wine (all $9 to $10) with your better half. The food veers toward the familiar and straightforward, as in appetizers like crispy artichokes, strands of grilled radicchio sheathed with prosciutto, and fried artichokes. Grilled pizzas come with toppings like pork sausage and caramelized onions, and salads are of the Caprese sort. For anyone who grew up eating seafood pasta, there’s nothing new about the tagliolini, yet the portion is more than generous, the calamari is properly chewy, the clams and mussels are juicy, and the tomato sauce is enriched by all that seafood. Even better is the salsuicca e fagioli, pork sausage that simmered with cannellini beans. The fat from the meat infuses the sauce that coats the creamy beans — the sort of thing you’ll want to eat during a winter storm. Finish with a similarly oversize tiramisù: There’s no shame in enjoying the familiar done well.
