You don't need a DeLorean to go back in time at this Carroll Gardens trattoria, from restaurateur Alessandro Peluso (Cacio e Pepe, Bocca). As if you couldn't guess by the name, the homestyle menu is rooted in the kind of comfort food your Italian-American nonna would make: gnocchi with tomato sauce; turkey meat loaf over rosemary-smashed yukon potatoes; and duck-and-veal meatballs in cherry glaze. Pastas—like the sausage-ragù-slicked cavatelli—are hand-rolled, and ricotta and mozzarella are made on the premises, as is the ice cream, served as banana splits, root beer floats and fudge brownie sundaes. Keeping with the old-time feel, the 40-seat space is styled like a 1930s Brooklyn parlor, with framed family photos, an antique Singer sewing machine and Granny's china secured in a glass cabinet.
