We've only been in Brooklyn 4 days and this is our second visit to Naked Dog! We took friends with us this time and they loved it too. Really good food, lovely wine and a great atmosphere

Absolutely amazing restaurant. From the physical appearance and decor, the ambiance, the staff and of course, the food: everything is literally as good as it gets. Owner Cecilia and her staff go so far above and beyond to make sure that not a single detail is overlooked for your experience dining with them. The food is as good as any I've ever had anywhere and the restaurant itself is so perfectly placed in the great Greenpoint. We started with the crispy eggplant and burrata, watermelon salad and a side of the cauliflower; then shared the short rib with polenta and a side of fries. Finished it off with the olive oil cake. Everything was a 10. Bartender truly has a passion for what he does as the cocktails are masterful- suggest giving the KEEP OAXACAN a try- it's superb. Same goes for the food. The waiters placed knives on the table to accompany the short ribs- we didn't even pick these knives up. The meat is THAT tender. Flavorful beyond measure too. And the portion sizes are really impressive. I'm still thinking about the crispy eggplant and burrata and how much I loved it. The olive oil cake was the perfect ending to a perfect dinner. Can't wait to return to try all of the house made pasta! Recommend Naked Dog with the utmost enthusiasm. Won't surprise me at all when this restaurant is recognized with Michelin stars... plural.

Bar and table service is great, very attentive and knowledgeable. Drinks and wine is good. The food is fresh and delicious. The only change needed is the focaccia bread portion needs to be larger.

Naked Dog is one of our favorite places in the neighborhood! The food is always excellent and the service is too. They were super accommodating of two young children and a baby/stroller.

Naked Dog is a more-than-solid neighborhood spot for delicious pastas and other Italian dishes. Happy Hour drinks and snacks are a real bargain. Apps and entrees were all terrific. Will return for sure

Absolutely an easy recommendation for Italian food in Greenpoint. The staff is more than friendly, the location is nice (especially on the patio with good weather) and the food is incredible. We shared the duck, ravioli and then I went back the next night for the bolognese. I can’t pick one to recommend because all three were just so good. The bolognese is the dish that will make me a frequent visitor, though.

It was my second time at this restaurant. First time I celebrated my moms birthday there and then met with my friend for dinner. Both times I had great and delicious experience. Location is great, parking was easy, very clean and good looking location, everyone who works there are awesome and food is on point! Loved it and will be back.
