A good Sardinian dish is hard to find in New York City—particularly Brooklyn. But hungry fans of this swoonworthy Italian island, located just west of the boot, need not hop on an Alitalia flight just yet. Instead, point yourself to Greenpoint, where you’ll be whisked to a table at chic-yet-casual Le Fanfare, the sibling restaurant to Nolita’s Epistrophy.

Start off with the creamy, rich burrata, enhanced with pane carasau—thin crispy, addictive flat bread from Sardinia. Then move on to the pasta dish known as Malloreddus alla Campidanese. If Sardinia were a nation—many Sardinians wish it were—this would be the national dish. The grooves in these dumpling-like morsels are perfect for pulling in bits of the marinara and pork sausage, ensuring an explosion of flavor in every bite.

But you don’t have to go the full Sardinian here. The menu touches on regions all around Italy, picking the best of the best. Case in point: Cacio e Pepe, the classic and simple Roman pasta dish composed of a bundle of thick strands of bucatini noodles, rich melted pecorino cheese (most of which is made in Sardinia, by the way), and pepper. Or the lusciously rich, Piedmont-flavored, Sweet Potato–Stuffed Agnolotti, sprinkled with toasted almonds and spiked with saffron.
