Famous Italian restaurant in Schenectady, might be hard to find on a one way street in Mount Pleasant. Delicious orange colored sauce. Great pasta dishes.

Went to Ferrari's for their pasta special on Wednesday night. Great variety of pastas to choose from. Their suace is great and the meatballs are fantastic. We went with quite a large party (20) and they handled it beautifully. Good service great food and you can't beat the price. Will definitely go back.

I have eaten there many times & have never had a problem. I like the food & servers. Twice I called and ordered take out dinners - it is like you order from another place.

What a great find. Friendly wait staff, great food, huge portions and very reasonable prices. Chocolate cordial cups were a nice unexpected treat. We will be back!

Ferrari's is rated among the top three or four Italian Restaurants in Schenectady. This was my first visit. I ordered their house specialty (veal parmesian) and home made pasta. I thought the pasta was overcooked (I prefer al' dente). The veal parm was well prepared, but I've had better veal parm at Cannali's. I tried the Braggiole ordered by one... More

In Schenectady for only one night, we used trip advisor to help us pick a dinner restaurant. We chose Ferrari's and were not disappointed. We had lasagna and chicken parm, both were delicious. The salad was a bit of a disappointment and frankly unnecessary. The bread was excellent. The service was a bit slow, but it was Saturday night and... More

Food was excellent, service was good, location not the greatest…. That being said, while in Schenectady (use your GPS) and please don't take a wrong turn--and visit a family style italian restaurant that has something for everybody!

My family and I have eaten at Ferrari's Restaurant close to 50 times in the last 7 to 8 years. The last visit was by far the most disappointing. My family actually was looking see if ownership has changed. The servers seemed to out gunned. We waited close to 15 minutes just to place our order and our server was... More
