Food was perfection, beautiful flavors, tender pastas and Short Rib was melt-in-your-mouth wonderful! Great wine selection as well. Definitely recommend this restaurant over some of the other Italian new-comers in the neighborhood

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.

love going to Naked Dog for weeknight date night, the Octopus is always cooked perfectly and you can't go wrong with any of the pastas.

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.

Food was great. Super loud though. That front door needs to be fixed though. Boy is it loud. And nope, that’s not a bad joke.

Been a dozen times now. Previous host was much better (gentleman with glasses). He felt authentic. Current host is a bit all over the place, and had much too big of a presence for the small, intimate space. Did not ruin experience by any means, just didn’t enhance it. Hope to see the original staff back for our next time in.

Consistent, high quality and incredible service! The staples on the menu are delicious and will never disappoint. However, the specials are coined so appropriately ;-).

Great staff and authentic Italian like mom would make in Italy. Nothing is overdone. Each ingredient has its place in each dish and it’s wonderful. The staff are friendly and informative. It’s a happy place.

I have visited Naked Dog twice and it almost pains me to give it a 3 star review because the food was superb, full of flavour and perfectly seasoned, complemented by an extensive wine list. Both times however I found myself struggling to hold a conversation with my dining partner because of the irritatingly noisy patrons around us, most of them parties of 4+, getting progressively shoutier as the wine flowed. The very on trend interior is bare brick and floorboards so unsurprisingly the noise carries like sonic boom. The service was fine on first occasion but on the second we were presented with the check before we even asked for it just as we were pondering which after dinner liquor to order - at that point the only tip I felt like leaving was to tell the waiter not to rush a paying customer because you hope to fit in another sitting! I enjoyed the food very much but would not recommend this place for a cosy dinner or date.

Unique and perfect menu! I have fined here many times now and tried many of the dishes and every single thing has been nothing short of delicious.
The pasta is fresh and made in house and the menu offers dishes you just don’t see at other Italians restaurants and is very refreshing.
The wait staff is like a family and always attentive and knowledgeable
I can not recommend this place enough!
