4.5 stars? You gatta be kidding me. – Average, not recommended. Yes, it's a neighborhood fixture, but longevity doesn't equal quality. The other reviewers are right, it's like your grandma's kitchen (with 1950s decor and family pictures) - but not in the most complimentary sense. It not much more than your run-of-the-mill low-brow-red-sauce-diner cooking. Nothing you couldn't prepare yourself, and nothing really memorable but not terrible either. It's like a decent diner. Hardly qualifies as "one of the best Italian restaurants in Brooklyn". Not by a long shot.
4 stars more like 1 – The food was awful. I order the shrimp w/ oil and gralic and sun dry tomato there was nooo flavor. It was more like butter. I would not recommond anyone to eat at this place.
Great Service and excellent food! – Great service and excellent food! Would recommend any day! I had the veggie lasagna and sangria, it's my favorite dinner place for italian for sure! kelly
Extra credit for that extra surprise: music – Aunt Suzie who is that cute guy singing his heart out on Fridays and Wed.
I think I'm falling in love and might have to come in twice a week from now on. I thought he struck all the right cords singing soft and mellow and old fashion songs. Is he married?
Thank goodness Aunt Suzie loves to cook cause I don't – A real neighborhood place where everyone goes home happy, especially the one paying the bill.
I tried the home made gnocchi alfredo and feel it was as good as any in the best and most expensive restaurants in town. My husband had Osso bucco, all I can say is thank goodness there's a place that makes it so I don't have to do it. I love the guy, but I'm not cooking for 3 hours for one meal!
Avoid during the week and on weekends. – What we have here is completely pedestrian food at pretty low prices. You truly get what you pay for. That applies to the wait staff as well, they are middling at best.
My Chicken sorrentino arrive with congealed cheese on top. Ewww Aunt Suzie?s, what?s up with that? Is no one checking these dishes before they leave the kitchen? This was my first and last time there. Even La Villa with their horrible staff fares better than this. See Ya!
Two thumbs up for a drink at Aunt Suzie's – Aunt Suzie are you getting HIP with that new bar and music on Fridays and Wednesdays. What's with you girl, keep the old fashioned pasta coming and don't get snooty just cause you have a bar.
Love you a little more now that I can have a drink.
The bar looks great.
Good place to relax after work with some friends. – I go to Aunt Suzie's about twice a month with friends. They recently put in a pretty bar with a very attentive bartender. I think his name is Will. I love the osso bocco and the mixed vegetables. The key lime pie is the best dessert they have. I also love their chicken sorrentino with mashed potatoes. When my parents come into town they always want to go to Aunt Suzie's. Now they get their favorite drinks and I can still get a root beer. I always find the waiters to be friendly and helpful. Once in a while they miss a step but it's a neighborhood place so I just lighten up about it. Nice place to relax during the week for a very filling dinner for not too much money and a smile on our faces when we leave. Cute front window displays too! Read a book to a kid today!
Losing faith in old faithful – I have been eating at Aunt Suzies for about four years now and I have to say that I have noticed a gradual decline within the past year in both food and service. I was very dissapointed with the lack of service and attention to their customers. They seemed to be more involved with the new bar than patrons. Waitstaff indiscreetly chewing gum as they spoke to customers, that really annoyed me. So unprofessional. But let's get to the food, shall we. First of all, the salad had a good deal of brown lettuce. As far as my pork chop was concerned, it had not been properly trimmed at all, there was so much fat!!!! Our pasta was so bland. I think that the chef may have forgotten to salt the water as well as the sauce (way underseasoned). I was very discouraged by this visit to Aunt Suzies and will be staying away for awhile. It's a real shame because their food and service used to be pretty consistent, but now I've observed a new waitstaff that don't seem to take as much pride in their work and the food just isn't up to par anymore.
