Old Italian says it all 6/2/2009

The food was cooked perfectly and it shows in the different sauces. I had the brociole, which brought me back to nona's (grandma's) house. Pasta was al dente,(nice) the pannella was delicious.\r Thanks for a special birthday dinner honey. Pros: Quick service and pleasant old time atmosphere more

All hype and mostly oil 4/10/2009

I lived just 1 block away from this place and my friend's italian family (circa 1915) went there regularly back in the days. The dishes were suppose to be true Sicilian.\r I tried it at least 4 times and if this is Sicilian at it's best, I rather each McDonalds. Most of the dishes are swimming in oil and bland. Everytime I walked out of there, I always felt unfulfilled. Pros: never hand to wait for a table Cons: most food swims in oil, less than friendly more

Panelle Specials!! 10/5/2008

I've been going here with my family for some years now. Ferdinando's is a small italian restaurant with exposed brick walls and old world charm. Pictures of Italy hang on the walls along with photos of the owner with celebrities. They filmed a small scene of The Departed in this place with Leo DiCaprio. I cannot comment on the regular italian dishes that are served here b/c everytime i go i get a Panelle Special. Panelle is chick pea flour made into a pancake and deep fried. The Special is served on a fresh role with ricotta cheese and grated parmigiano. Very delicious. The rice ball special (rice ball with sauce, ricotta and grated cheese) is also a must for an appetizer. Don't forget some potato croquettes, fried calamari and a Manhattan Special to wash it all down with. Expect to see an increase in your pressure and cholesterol after eating all of this fried food, but it is well worth it. Pros: Traditional Sicilian Dishes more

The BEST hole in the wall place that thankfully hasnt changed!!! 10/12/2007

I shouldnt be writing this as the place is very very small and I dont want it to get over-crowded, but I love this place. I've been going to Ferdinandos since I was a little girl, special occassions were celebrated here, good grades on report cards, meeting up with friends, even after christmas tree shopping. This place holds so many memories for me.. This has been and will always be my most favorite place to eat in Brooklyn. Manhattan Special on tap in a cold frosty mug, yummy! more

Red-checkered tablecloth and house wine 1/4/2003

Old fashioned, unpretentious eatery with great food. No gimmicks or ""fresh twist"" here, just straight forward Italian food. I love their frutti di mare salad, as well as the pasta selections. . The diningroom is hot in the summer time, cozy in cold weather. Red checkered tablecloth, mismatched silverware, heavy plates that have been washed a million times with scratches to prove it. Makes you feel like you've lived here for a long time. Pros: good food, historical Cons: small, bad A/C, a hike from subway more
