    Sub par pizza, poor service

    I've given this place a few tries and each time get the same bland, overcooked pizza (with undercooked middle). Don't even think of coming with more than 1 person-- I was totally embarrassed bringing out of town guests. Service is slow and the manager was rude. Brussel sprouts side was the only bright spot. Not nearly enough to bring me back.

    If you come with groupon

    We were up front and said we had a groupon. Got an appetizer with 4 shrimp on it and a mountain of onions. Menu said it was $12, I find it hard to believe someone charges $12 for 4 mini shrimp. Pizza was delicious, have to give credit where its do but toppings were scattered in a minimalist fashion and this $18 pizza was for an individual. 4 slices, maybe 14" at most. I feel like this was only since we had the groupon but I could be wrong. If I were to go back, and I would because the pizza was good I wouldnt mention my groupon until the food came out.

    Delicious & Delightful

    An absolute gem. Our experience last night included excellent service - friendly, informative, and there immediately when needed - the lovely ambiance of the back yard, and salads and rustic pizzas so delicious we couldn't stop exclaiming over them. Every ingredient was flavourful yet never overpowering, just right. Salads were crisp and bright; we tried 3 different pizzas (all meatless for us, so can only comment on that - but with or without the ham, the tartufata truffle paste & mushroom white pizza was insanely good). We also tried 3 of the house cocktails and each one was silky smooth and expertly prepared. So many of the new Slope restaurants have left me underwhelmed ... but this place should be around for a long time. Well priced and creative menu, outstanding service, warm attractive atmosphere, we loved Brooklyn Central!

    Order the Juliette

    Love the Juliette Pie + the Kale salad! I'll be back often once they get their liquor license!

    At Last...

    Nicely appointed and welcoming with a great wood burning oven that keeps it toasty warm. The food is amazing and they use only fresh ingredients from Brooklyn providers! Have tried several of the specialty pizzas the black garlic pie is wonderful and the meatballs...mmmm spicy and delicious. Do not miss the olive selection and the dessert calzone. I will be back can not wait til they get the liquor license...will spend many wintery afternoons here!!

    Welcome addition to the Slope

    First here is where I'm coming from: Park Slope is a culinary wasteland with little in the way of good restaurants and very little value within the limited choices. My standard by which I judge pizza is: Tontonno's of Coney Island is the best traditional pizza in NY. Lucali is the best contemporary pizza in Brooklyn. Keste is excellent. Johns on Bleeker is classic. Anyway I live a block away from Brooklyn Central and was very excited to see it open. They installed a beautiful wood burning oven from italy and they seem to take their pies seriously. Their salad selection is interesting although I think a mixed green salad would be a good addition. The pizza selection is divided between Old World and New World syles...the difference being Old World is made with Buffalo Mozzarella and New World is made with fresh cows milk Mozzarella. So quick review: We ordered a basic Margharita pie- Great crust...good but slightly under seasoned sauce. A FINE PIE! We also ordered a pie with sausage which added just enough additional flavor to make up for the under seasoned sauce. The sausage had a nice porky italian taste. A great pie. My only suggestion- I think the owners are still getting a feel for their oven. Although the crusts gad a nice char the crusts seemed a bit underdone...perhaps the ovens are running a bit too hot...don't know but if the owners are reading this please take note. All in all a great experience and I encourage the neighborhood to support these guys because this is THE BEST PIZZA IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD!!!
