Lea is an Italian Restaurant in the heart of Ditmas Park, Brooklyn. At the heart of our menu, as well as our kitchen, is a Stefano Ferrara wood-fired oven. Imported from Naples, Italy, we use this oven almost 24 hours a day to bake our breads, slow-roast our meats and vegetables and, of course, finish our pizzas.<br /><br />We believe that simplicity is key to a good meal. Our seafood, meat, and produce are consciously-sourced and foraged, and anything we can make in-house, we will.<br /><br />Our name come from Avi's (one of our owner's) grandmother, Lea, who we celebrate for her warmth, beauty, and innate flair for cuisine. We hope to bring you the same rustic food and thoughtful hospitality you may encounter in her kitchen.<br /><br />We hope to welcome you at Lea Restaurant very soon!
