“Best Arancini.”

Ferdinando's Focacceria
Ranked #205 of 6,662 Restaurants in Brooklyn
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 26, 2016

The atmosphere is a small neighborhood restaurant that's been there 112 years. Almost reminds me of the restaurant in the Godfather. The servers are a little rough around the edges. However, the tomato sauce is excellent. Best Rice Balls (Arancini), and the seafood was very fresh.

Step back a decade or too. Neighborhood family owned, fun pictures on successful media over the years. Had delish panelles, potato croquettes, linguini with white clams, sausage & broccoli rabe. Service was excellent. Ambiance outdated but okay. Wine was room temp, which was actually warm. Steamy week for NYC weather. Decided to go elsewhere for dessert. But planning to return for the other highly recommended dishes.

When we arrived, the owner was at the entrance. We saluted him warmly, but he replied in a very cold way and without a smile. We sat immediately. Atmosphere and ambiance of this restaurant are Not OK. Even if you scan and see a wifi named "Ferdinandos" don't bother to ask for the password: they would clame that only the son of the owner knows it, and he isn't there at the moment. If you want to eat pasta, be ready to pay about 25 dollars. A Mexican chef will prepare for you a dish of pasta that is definitely not an Italian recepie. I didn't like it at all. I will never eat again at Ferdinando's.
