My husband and I dined at Cremini’s for the first (but definitely not last) time on Saturday. We were visiting Brooklyn so made the reservations early to be sure we got a table. The food was superb. We started with cured meats and a caprese salad. My husband had the gnocchi with ragu while I had the lasagna. Both were great. We finished with the La Bomba. Excellent. We also really enjoyed speaking with Riccardo and Elena, who made us feel so welcome. It definitely reminded us of eating in a small restaurant in Marche. Hopefully the weather will better so we can enjoy the garden seating next time. Look forward to return.

Lovely, thank you! Great hosts, food was amazing, and the wine too. Felt like being in a little Italian town. The back area was closed due to rain - front outdoor area could use some additional light, but besides that it was perfect.
