PT Restaurant, Williamsburg’s latest intimate Italian dining spot, has opened its doors to the cozy, lower-level eatery. The restaurant is an offspring of D.O.C. wine bar, providing the same great service on the south side of the neighborhood. Heading the kitchen at PT is Alfonso Montfusco, famous Italian chef and culinary writer. He has created a very concise menu, consisting of quality, modern Italian dishes. The Carpaccio beef with walnut-infused olive oil, chives, chili peppers and citrus dressing is just a preview of more excellent creations to come. The interior is reminiscent of an old post office; an earth-toned atmosphere with a communal table setting. With an affordably priced list of fine Italian wines and a menu that changes every two months, there’s a good reason to stop back here on a regular basis.

Taking its name from the Italian slang for Post Office, PT is the kind of place you’d want to stumble upon after returning from a trip to Italy, with wooden communal tables, dishtowels as napkins, and elegant details like candlelight and beautiful stemware. A back garden promises al fresco seating, and during the later summer months, home-grown tomatoes. Your bread stays warm after is arrives to the table in its brown paper bag joined with little accompanying bowls of olive oil, and dishes focus on a few ingredients of exquisite quality, expertly combined. Baby bocconcini of buffalo mozzarella come artfully plated with tomatoes and thinly sliced prosciutto; shaved fennel salad dressed in olive oil, lemon juice and sea salt brightens fresh octopus carpaccio. Homemade maltagliati, fresh sheets of pasta “badly cut” into irregular shapes, are a perfect al dente, and hold firm under a sauce of tender braised cuttlefish. To complete the foreign transmutation, an all-Italian wine list shows as much care as the cooking; PT’s proprietors also own DOC Wine Bar.
