al di la Trattoria is based on a love story: Venetian Emiliano Copa first met Chef Anna Klinger when she studied at the cooking school he operated. One of the grand dames of our list, this popular trattoria has served a savvy crowd of local NYU professors, media types and food-minded families in Park Slope for over a decade. al di la Trattoria serves traditional Venetian cuisine in a warm dining room with a hammered tin ceiling and lovingly mismatched light fixtures. Primis like malfatti and casunziei, ravioli filled with red beets and ricotta are particularly Venetian as are bacala Montecato, spaghetti vongole with Manila Clams keep the clientele smiling, as does the extensive wine list, which consists of both Italian and international bottles. This team now owns two classy watering holes: Bar Corvo Bar Corvo at 791 Washington Ave. and Lincoln Station at nearby 409 Lincoln Place.
