Aita opened its doors in May 2012 in one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Brooklyn: Clinton Hill.

As an italian restaurant we cook elegant, rustic, honest food that brings back traditional, nostalgic flavors, and also new inspired dishes from places we love.

We base our menu on local and seasonal ingredients often coming from farms and green markets. The restaurant reflects our food; our guests, welcomed by a friendly and warm service, will find themselves in a cozy environment as if they were in the home of good friend.

Our goal at Aita is to create for you a moment of sharing, of emotion, and memory- and most importantly, to see a smile on your face





It’s early evening, you’ve finished work, you’re also a tiny bit hungry. You’re on your way home and maybe there is a place on the way, your regular spot, where you know you’ll bump into a friend and a drink is in order, along with some nibbles. Nothing that will ruin your appetite for dinner, of course, anzi (quite the contrary), something that will help it along. That’s the aperitivo.

We are offering our aperitivo every week night from 5:30pm to 7:30pm, a selection of pre dinner cocktails served with our tagliere of gnocco fritto, assorted meat and cheese and homemade pickled vegetables.


Monday - Friday   5:oopm - 7:30pm

$15 Aperitif drink + Tagliere of Gnocco fritto with spreads, assorted meat and cheese, pickled giardiniera




Aita is primarly a walk-in restaurant. 

We accept a limited number of reservations for parties of 6 or larger for dinner, for parties of 8 or larger for brunch.

We also offer private events and dining for larger parties for all sorts of occasions.

Please keep in mind that due to the small size of the restaurant we can only hold your reservation for fifteen (15) minutes, if your fully party is not arrived without advice we will release the table and will treat your group as a walk-in, doing our best to seat your party when a table becomes available.
