This space could be its own Little Italy! An enormous new Italian restaurant in Williamsburg offers its visitors four distinct dining experiences. Ainslie Italian Wine Bar and Beer Garden, which opened in a former warehouse on Sept. 12, slices its space into a rustic wine bar, an expansive beer hall, a cocktail lounge, and a relaxing rooftop patio, which allows people to see the eatery in multiple lights, according one of its owners.

“Because of the size of the building, we felt like we wanted to give people multiple experiences — every room has a distinctly different atmosphere,” said Sergio Riva, who owns the space with Mario Riva and AJ Bontempo, along with three other eateries in Manhattan.
