The reviews looked good so we gave it a try. I imagine for the neighborhood this restaurant is in, it's probably the best food in the area. However, the meats were not grilled but cooked in a pan with liquid. expensive for the quality of food. The 4 of us agree we would not go back.

Stopped in for the ever so delicious fettuccine! The sauce is AMAZING and the portion size is enormous. I had left overs for 2 days. Lol Delightful service, excellent fettuccine!

During my recent visit, we were welcomed by a very friendly bartender, then seated within minutes. The waitress was great whom immediately brought bread and asked to take our drink order. We ordered dinner which included a beautiful salad. Our dinners were awesone and plentiful!! We all took home our leftovers and best of all the packaging was placed in... More

I actually ate here twice in one week. The first time the service was excellent, second time it was good. The food was good. The house Italian dressing is just like my dad's. Their sauce is okay - a little on the watery side. The shells and ravioli (twice remember) were good. The meatballs are fantastic. The first time I... More

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.

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
