Bonafini is a low-key neighborhood Italian spot in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. It’s just one long room with a low ceiling, brick walls, and a single vintage speaker playing music in the corner, and the servers will probably know your name after a few visits. The pastas are pretty solid, and it’s a great place for either a low-key date or a dinner with your kids when you need to get out of the house.
