If you can only go to one restaurant in Oakdale this is it!

A must for anyone in the vicinity of Oakdale! Family and friends are always happy to meet us near our home for lunch/dinner because of Ferrareses! The best sandwiches we have ever had!

The one thing you want to do if visiting this restaurant is not to come at noon!!! You will be waiting (and there's not much room to do that!!!) But.. it's worth the wait!!! The food is really delicious... Especially the sautéed mushroom and cheese sandwiches!!! Nice but noisy atmosphere.. barnwood and antiques lend to the atmosphere!!

...Anymore...it's too crowded. The old Yogi Berra line applies to Ferressi's Restaurant in Oakdale. Every time we go there, regardless of the time of day, it is crowded. There is a reason. The food tastes great. Funny to read the reviews as some think it too expensive and others think it is a bargain. I will say this: the restaurant... More

I was out for a bike ride with a friend of mine and we got hungry. Neither one of us had ever eaten at this little restaurant and decided to give it a shot. We went after 2 o'clock so we wouldn't have to wait and the place is packed with a line. We waited about a half hour and... More

This delli is so good, you would think I was making it up. Everything here is amazing. Try the Pastrami sandwich, it is unbelievable. They have been around since at least the 60's. And it is no wonder. The food is great!

I've been eating here every Thursday for the past 21 years and have NEVER been disappointed with any item I have ordered. I recommend the Grilled Chicken Sandwich with Spaghetti Salad. Tonight I ate the Pastrami with Harvarti Cheese and the broccoli salad side.

I have only eaten here 2 or 3 times in the last 7 years and the food was tasty. It seems though, their hours and my time schedule seem to never ever match. I do have to say every time I drive by.. the parking lot is "ALWAYS FULL".

Hi there; my fiance and went there for dinner on a Saturday evening. Waited an hour for dinner to be served. Food was great. Saw others get up and leave. Otherwise we would be back to eat here again. Thank you, Karen and Gary. March 17, 2015 Tuesday.

We found this place on tripadvisor and were driving through on our way to Yosemite. So glad we stopped. My husband had an amazing sandwich. He loved the pistachio salad. The penne with meat sauce hit the spot. it wasn't anything special, however. The prices were really reasonable and the portions were huge.
