Brooklyn restaurant Gran Sasso announced that its 5,000 square foot outdoor garden, Il Giardino, will be open for customers and special event booking on May 1, 2017.

“We are very happy that our guests will be able to experience this beautiful space,” said owner Pietro Sasso. “It’s not only a spot for events, but it also is where we grow the herbs and spices we use in our kitchen.”

Il Giardino will feature seasonal greenery among Gran Sasso’s herb and spice garden and can hold up to 200 guests. In addition to being used for al fresco dining and private events, Gran Sasso plans to host outdoor movie screenings beginning in summer 2017.

“No other restaurant in Williamsburg has a garden of this size,” Pietro said. “Il Giardino will be a unique and memorable backdrop for everything from corporate events to private celebrations, and even weddings.”

Il Giardino is the newest of Gran Sasso’s three event spaces. La Corte Lampadario is a double height, sky lighted court anchored by a four-tier copper pipe, tree-roots shaped, room-expansive chandelier. La Saletta is a fully private wine cellar outfitted with audio and video capabilities and designed with just the right touch of Italian “rustico.”

About Gran Sasso

Gran Sasso opened in Williamsburg in October 2016 and quickly won an Open Table Diner’s Choice award for its authentic Italian cuisine. Under the direction of Michelin-star chef Luca Casadio, the kitchen makes fresh pasta daily and seasons its culinary creations with herbs and spices grown in Gran Sasso’s own garden. With brick oven pizza and a 100-bottle (and growing) wine list, there is something to please every palette.
