Had lunch last Thursday. Go every time in the area. Love their Veal Parm. The place is a 'throw-back' in a real non-tourist area...you expect to see Tony Soprano at one of the tables. Always packed with locals.Large portions at reasonable prices and everything is good. Enjoy!!

This was the third year our family and friends celebrated New Years at Ferarri's. I have lived near and frequented this neighborhood eatery for over forty years, we plan to continue.

Have not been here in over 10 years but recently had a craving for the braciole, so sporadically invited friends to join us for the drive over. Hesitant because friends are connoisseurs of Italian cuisine and its all about the sauce, so we never go Italian with them. I had already prepared myself for the criticism. Reservations are necessary and... More

My family and i have been going here for at least 20 years.. we love it.. The food is the best Italian in the area. Large tasty portions.. Everybody leaves with leftovers. I have never had a bad meal there. Friendly Family run business with a lot of character. Worth the wait..

Our food was good but the service was horribly slow, over 2 hours to eat and we had the specials! We waited at the podium almost 15 minutes until someone talked with us and we had a reservation

This place is awesome! I especially adore any veal dish they have in addition to their cream puffs. Their veal parm and cream puffs are the best I've ever had. They gave me so much for dinner for the veal I was able to save the rest for lunch for the next day. My husband, son and cousin were able... More

A trip to Ferrari's is like visiting your Italian grandparents on a Sunday afternoon to have a macaroni dinner. The Ferrari family is very friendly and the entire staff makes you feel more than warm and welcome. The food is always fresh and the homemade pastas are to die for. You won't get a bigger portion anywhere and this reviewer... More

i had visited this place along with my colleagues when I had visited Schenectady. Tucked at a corner this place can fool anyone for its small size look from outside. but inside it is a big place. Being a vegetarian they suggested some of their signature dishes that can be made as Vegetarian. The choice were good. The home fries... More

By far the best Italian food you can get within 100 miles of this place. Everything is fresh and perfectly prepared without a steep price. Don't waste your time and money at Olive Garden or at Macaroni Grill with this Gem that can't be missed.

We have been going to Ferrari's for over 35 years, and they never fail to serve up a wonderful meal. Our favorites are Chicken or Veal Parm, Chicken Antonio, Hot Antipasta, Homemade Cavatelli and Meatballs. It's all great!!! The Ferrari Family welcomes you as you enter, and make you feel like one their own. We have used their catering service... More
