    The Sausage Parm sandwich is awsome. It was on the Food Paradise tv show on the Sausage Paradise episode. Opened for over 110 years!

    Don't miss the panelle, a fried chickpea pastry served with fresh ricotta, or the freshly made burrata, the perfect partner to smoky grilled eggplant. & save room if you can for a house-made cannoli.

    Serving authentic Sicilian food, the types that you would normally only find on the squares and narrow alleys of Palermo, this Sicilian restaurant has been a Brooklyn staple since 1904 Read more

    Pastas are hearty and delicious, especially the pasta con sarde. I'll try anything once but I don't think I'll be getting the Vastedda again.

    The favorite snack is the panelle special, layering smoky chickpea fritters on a homemade roll slathered with ricotta and sprinkled with Parmesan. The pastas are distinguished too. Read more

    Was a bit let down by the pasta dishes. Grilled eggplant salad wasn't made fresh but pulled out of a container. Caselnova makes better pasta but would probably come back here to try specialties

    Established 1904, continuously operated. Serves old Sicilian dishes, like chickpea-flour fritters; vasteddi, a focaccia made with calf's spleen; and pasta topped with sardines canned by the owner.
