Review: Peperoncino in Park Slope


Last week, Shyam and I swung by Peperoncino in Park Slope.

It’s a pretty standard Italian restaurant and in addition to trying their ravioli in vodka sauce we also ordered a Quattro Formaggi pizza pie (fior di latte, fontina, gorgonzola, parmigiano). With absolutely no expectations, I have to say it was quite tasty. At $13, it was slightly cheaper than what you might find in Manhattan and you can’t beat eating at an outdoor sidewalk table on 5th Avenue in the Slope and a beautiful spring evening.


There are five other “classic” pies on the menu:

Marinara (tomato, garlic, oregano) 9.50
Napoletana (toamto, capers, anchovies) 10.00
Margherita (tomato, fior di latte & basil) 11.00
Diavola (tomato fior di latte ” spicy sausage) 12.50
Capricciosa (tomato , fior di latte: mushrooms, ham, artichokes, black olives) 13.50

And then a bunch of specialty pies:

Contadinella (tomato, mozzarella vegetables) 13.50
Ricotta E Spinaci (ricotta , spinach , capers, black olives) 13.00
La Tonnara (tomato, mozzarella, tunafish, onions) 13.50
La Belle Italia (cherry tomato, mozzarella, pesto) 12.50
Vegetariana (tomato & mixed grilled vegetables) 12.50
A ‘ciorta (smoked mozzarella, eggplant, roasted peppers, onion) 14.50
Pulcinella (mozzarella, fontina , mushrooms, speck) 14.50
Salsiccia Friarielli (mozzarella, sausage, broccoli rape) 13.50
Peperoncino (cherry tomato, mozzarella, shrimp , zucchini) 14.50
A ‘mbriana (cherry tomato, mozzarella, prosciutto, arugola, parmigiano) 15.50
Pizza Do’mare (tomato , calamari , mussels, clams, shrimp) 17.00
L’oro Di Napoli (mozzarella, ricotta, basil, 23k gold leaves) 16.00

23k gold leaves?? Interesting! Show us the bling, yo.

About I Dream Of Pizza

Some guys dream about winning the Powerball jackpot, making love to Kate Upton, or scoring the winning touchdown in the Super Bowl. But personally, I spend most of my time dreaming about digging my face into a mouth watering slice of pizza. Fireworks are ignited. Music comes out of nowhere. And just like that, I’ve fallen in love once again. Since 2008, I've chronicled my pizza eating adventures in New York City and around the world on I Dream Of Pizza -- the web's most popular blog dedicated entirely to pizza.
