Matt Damon took a break from filming The Instigators to dine on some classic Italian food.

On Friday, Damon stopped by Brooklyn's Antica Pesa with his wife Luciana Barroso Damon. The couple was joined by The Instigators director Doug Liman and other members of the movie's crew.

According to a source, the group shared appetizers like the crudo e bufala croccante, which is baked mozzarella and prosciutto wrapped in filo dough, and polpo, rape e miele, a roasted octopus dish with potato foam and charred turnips. They also sampled classic spaghetti cacio e pepe and aigatoni all'amatriciana, a red sauce pasta with guanciale, among other dishes.

Damon, who has visited the restaurant's Rome location in the past, and his wife of 18 years were described as being "friendly and humble with everyone who recognized him."
