Gino Cammarata, a gelato ace who’s gotten Chowhounds’ attention from the East Village to Bensonhurst, has just landed in Bay Ridge. It sounds as if he’s in top form. Hazelnut, cassata, and licorice gelati at his new place, Piattini, are “creamy and light as air,” bklynpnut tells us. “You must try it!”
Still untried by hounds are the savory dishes at this café and wine bar. Among them are Sicilian specialties like orange-fennel salad, salt-cod patties, and bucatini with sardines.
