Since 1944

Ferro di Cavallo, family owned and run since 1944, was born during the post-war economic depression that struck most of Italy. When it first opened it's doors, the menu consisted primarily of affordable dishes for the poor such as beans, vegetables, and sardine meatballs, because most people couldn't afford meat. Over the decades since then the menu has modernized and expanded along with the physical premises, but its roots still lie in the tradition and simplicity of post-war Italy. Typically packed with locals, this is a great place to eat a traditional Italian meal on a budget. Bonus: complimentary wine while queuing to be seated.
