Italian cuisine inspired by years of tradition
Hospitality rooted in Italian culture.
Our story started three generations ago on the island of Ponza, by our grandfather, Ferdinando, nickname, Ferdi. He came to America as a chef in 1955 and opened his restaurant on the Grand Concourse in the Bronx. Ferdi’s son, our father, Giuseppe, continued in his footsteps to later become Executive Chef of the Rainbow Room in 1978, then Giordano, and countless New York restaurants at a time when Italian cuisine in the city was authentically Italian. He then went on to open several of his own restaurants, where we began our journey. We continue their legacy by making it our mission to deliver the same quality, creative specials and flavors that we grew up with.
We look forward to welcoming you to Ferdi Ristorante.
Sincerely, Fernando Scarpati & Aida Scarpati
