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

This restaurant is some of the best food I've had in the capital region. Their chicken parmesan is amazing. Accompany that with penne al a vodka, and you're set! The atmosphere is a tad old, but full of charm. Food is great. Always ask for specials!!!

This is the best Italian Restaurant, bar none. I'm partial to the lasagna and the veal parm and I'm never disappointed. The service is excellent and the staff always makes you feel welcome. I've been come here for lunch every Friday for the last two decades and it's my favorite restaurant.

This is a great Italian restaurant that is off of the beaten path (at least for us). Our first visit to the restaurant was Mama Rosa's birthday so there was music, laughter and a genuinely great spirit in the restaurant. The menu is vast with a significant amount of homemade pasta, a good drink menu and a nice list of... More

The food is very good and you can make reservations with a party of at least six. They provide great service and specialize in Italian meals.

Have been several times, huge portions and great food! The service is excellent, staff does not change over very much. I only wish the location was different. The best Italian food in the area, on par with my family! Never disappointing
