A wine bar/ pizzeria from the owner of Tutta Pasta has opened on Seventh Avenue between Garfield and Carroll, in the space that was last occupied by gilled chicken joint Chickadee Chick.
The small restaurant, simply appointed with exposed brick and ceiling beams, wine bottle racks, and an open kitchen, serves up a focused selection of antipasti, salads, grilled meats, and brick-oven pizza (the whole menu can be found here).
Piccola Uva isn't unique for the neighborhood, but a no-frills place to grab a couple glasses of wine, some prosciutto and cheese, and a pizza will most likely not be frequently empty. They also sell pizza by the slice for $1, geared toward schoolkids looking for lunch.
It seats about 35 in two rooms, and when it gets warmer there will be outdoor seating as well.
Piccola Uva Wine Bar and Pizza, 165 Seventh Avenue Brooklyn NY 11215.
