Gran Torino is an Italian restaurant near the Bedford stop in Williamsburg and it has a very large backyard with its very own outdoor bar. Considering this place is pretty much made for Williamsburg day drinking, the food is better than it needs to be. Head to the counter inside, where you can order personal Neapolitan pizzas, salads, and other Italian snacks. We like the kale caesar that’s not embarrassed about how many anchovies are in its dressing, and the personal-sized pizza with olives, mushrooms, and a nice blanket of prosciutto on top.
