6) Park Slope: Gowanus Lounge reports that pizzeria Villa Rustica opened Monday. He writes: “Villa Rustica, which was setting up shop in the defunct pizza place on Third Street next to Stone Park Cafe officially opened yesterday, per a report from GL Correspondent Max Casey, Max reports: “A guy I talked to said he’d tried one of their slices and it was ‘pretty good.’” Hmm. Not a ringing endorsement, but we’ll be waiting for the reviews to roll in given that any new opening in the Slope is greeted like the Second Coming.” Status: Certified Open. 357 Third Street; 718-832-2700.
