This classic still gets locals' stamp of approval for its traditional Sicilian, particularly Palermo food. Don't expect anything fancy: the small outside area is set up with plastic tables and chairs, the long dining room, painted in an overly poppy orange, is lined with simple wooden tables and chairs. But this is the place for trying hearty meatballs, arancini (Palermo's heavenly fried rice balls), and caponata, all followed with cannolis, of course. Thanks to kind prices and a central location, Ferro is mobbed during lunch. Come early or be prepared to share a table with fellow diners, communal style.
