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

Red-sauce Italian place: lots of food. Pasta OK, break OK, shrimp good, house red wine OK. Good for a group or if you're in the neighborhood. Certainly not fine Italian dining.

Very good Italian restaurant! It is not toto big, but it's quite popular so I think it's better to make a reservation if you don't want to risk there's no place left! They have a big variety of veggies, pastas and meats, even if some recipes are not the typical italian ones, I can assure you that they are very... More

Clearly a well liked Italian eatery as the waitress seemed to know a lot of the patrons by name. Portions are large enough to share. Cheese cake was mouth watering. Wait staff was very attentive and pleasant.

My family and I stopped in for the first time last week, and we all loved it! It's a family friendly restaurant with an old school vibe. The food was fantastic, tasting like Grandma was in the kitchen. It was the sauce that won me over. It was nice and homemade. From the great pasta dishes (I had the gnocchi... More

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.
