It’s been called Concetta’s, Stefano’sand many years ago, RoSal’sbut 248 Ave. X has been serving Italian food in south Brooklyn for decades. Its interior shows the years, with a worn carpet, upholstered chairs dented where so many have sat, and tables haphazardly covered with red or green tablecloths and matching (although sometimes faded pink) napkins. In its current incarnation as RoSal's, a giant rendering of Mona Lisa hangs on the wall, sandwiched between two bouquet still lifes. The effect becomes charming once the eating commences. A watery minestrone and pallid mozzarella-and-tomato plate don't set the stage best, but the reasonably priced menu then gives way to a creamy penne alla vodka and a chicken francese with just enough butter and the right amount of lemon zing. The baked ziti is lighter than most, but still cheesy, and the chicken parm, drowning in marinara, is a salty delight.


Dinner special includes appetizer, pasta, and entrée; Mon-Fri, $13; Sat-Sun, $16. Weekday Lunch Special includes appetizer and entrée, $9.
