Italian
D Antan - Vino Naturale e Cucina Italiana - is an authentic Italian Restaurant. Our menu is inspired by traditional recipes from Piedmont, like tajarin, the most popular homemade pasta of the Region or beef Brasato in Barolo wine.

We serve Italian natural wines ALL BY THE GLASS. A consistent selection of “skin contact” wines (also called orange wines) makes our wine list even more special.

The food was amazing! It was very hot inside though - stronger fans or A/C would’ve been super helpful.

The small space was way too warm and the music too loud. Otherwise, the decor and atmosphere could have been enjoyable. The food was mostly good, but one of the entrees was bland. The service lacked professionalism and was not as personal as you would expect for such a small place with only a few tables. The wine was decent, except the second bottle of rosé was warm. I think this place has the potential to be really good, but I would not go back or recommend it at this time. For the price we paid, the experience was not worth it.

Incredible wine selection and great recs from the staff. The food was very flavorful (the stracciatella and anchovies is a must), the pasta al dente and fresh, and the service friendly. Also, it's a beautiful, intimate spot inside and has a lovely outdoor area.

Very cute place! Snug indoor and cute outdoor space. But tables are pretty tight. Food was really good, I had the lobster squid ink pasta and it was very nice. Straciatriatella and anchovies were a a great start. Service was good too.

We had a nice time. The recommended wine was really good - an orange wine that we asked to learn more about. Portions felt small overall for the price. Pastas were good. Also had the steak and it was on the smaller size with no real sides - purée was good but there wasn’t much of it. We had to order something additional as the pastas aren’t ‘main course’ sized - likely meant to be a pasta course followed or preceded by something else. We’d go back and know better how to order now.

The place has a great atmosphere, the outdoor seating area is not good at all. They did not ask how we wanted the steak cooked, looked like they were understaffed. It’s an okay restaurant — not bad but not amazing

Service was good once they finally came to the table. Food came out fast but in the proper order. The appetizers were good but VERY small small amount. The octopus was half a tentacle for $20? The gnocchi is definitely why you need to visit this place. We also got the duck Ragu and it was extremely bland. I would go again for the service and the gnocchi.

Small adorable and romantic restaurant with excellent wines and pasta. Service was impeccable and I was able to try orange wine for the first time and it was great! The wine recommendations were really on point! Def rec going by glass instead of bottle so you can try different ones! That duck ragu and squid ink pasta w lobster , yummm. Can’t wait to go back.

Beautiful location, but the service wasn’t up to par. I get it... you’ve been closed for a while and it’s a busy night. But it took 30 minutes just to get our drinks. The food is very artistic and elegant. I loved my gnocchi dish. I went with a group of not-so-adventurous eaters, and they had a hard time finding something appealing. Maybe the chef could keep the unique menu items, but add some fan favorites so everyone can have something they enjoy. I don’t think I would go back.

If you live or work in Crown Heights and are not yet a repeat guest of D’Antan, please consider this paradoxically homey-yet-refined, original-yet-engaging jewelbox any evening between Wednesday and Sunday. The outstanding program of natural wines is a hallmark of Alessandro Trezza, proprietor of Have & Meyer and Terre, in addition to D’Antan.

As a repeat guest, this stealth jewelbox has become like “casa mia”, as invited by the chef and his team. Except it’s a lot more charming, delicious, and uplifting than my humble hovel.
For this early-bird off-menu “assaggino”, the theme was a local mozzarella chef had discovered. To start, the cheese was presented atop bottarga, then finished with yuzu, powdered nero di seppia, and chive sprouts. Multiple bold flavor vectors functioned as a “team of rivals” (thank you, Doris Kearns Goodwin).
Then, we shifted gears from contemporary to classical, with chef-made gnocchi alla sorrentina. So light with fresh basil leaves, and satisfying in its simplicity.
To close, I gratefully accepted the most recent experiment at the interface of sweet and savory: on a base of fig mostarda was crumbled brutti ma buoni, topped with Alessandro Trezza’s sublime almond gelato, just a hint of fior di sale Trapanese and baby red shiso. Experiencing narrative art expressed in edible form is fulfilling.

D'Antan's wine selection was incredible. That's about it though, everything was well prepared, but the food was super challenging palate wise. We had the Gnocchi and the Bone Marrow Ravioli.

Food was excellent, lighting, atmosphere. They were playing some sort of 80's hits playlist during the entire eal (Love Shack included) that felt, perhaps, the exact opposite of what I would expect to hear at a place like this. We loved it, it was hilarious

D'Antan is a little bit different than your regular good Italian restaurant. The dishes have all receive the chef's special interpretation. The food is good but the chef adds too many ingredients for my taste -- especially since I think the standard interpretation is really good to begin with.

We had grilled octopus which was good, vitello tonnato which had a sour yogurt taste and was also lemony. For the presentation the vitello slices were curled around some extra herbs rather than flat on the plate. The veal was high quality. We also had ravioli parmigiana. Again the sour/lemony taste was too strong and you could barely taste the tonnato. Most disappointing was portion size -- three ravioli. The portion of the octopus was a bit skimpy; the vitello was short a slice. Worst of all was the tira mi su. Its a foam and has none of the wonderful creamy texture expected. Even the glass of wine was quite stingy.

The price for the main dishes seemed normal but you really get stuck with appetizers, desert, and wine by the glass -- by the bottle they looked reasonable if no a deal.

The service was great.

If you're looking for a bit of adventure you can get it at D'Antan


but the portions are tiny
