Perfectly exemplifying the definition of a trattoria — a family-owned, casual, neighborhood restaurant offering delicious, fresh, local food — Carroll Gardens’ Gersi opened in the summer of 2016. The unassuming cash-only eatery (there’s no sign out front), lovingly helmed by husband-and-wife duo Susannah and Gersi Mamega, serves up succulent seasonal Northern Italian dishes and house-made pastas (don’t miss the Spaghetti al Limone!). Savor the warmth of the no-frills, brick-walled dining room, or, weather permitting, head out back to the charming garden for an enchanting al fresco experience. But call ahead — Gersi has quickly become a Court Street favorite. (316 Court St., Brooklyn 347-889-5077.)
