Authentic Italian

They treat you like family and the food tastes just like grandma's. I've never had a bad meal...actually, I dream about their meals.

We've eaten at Ferrari's a few times in the last couple of years. We love their salad! Like that it is served family style and the vinaigrette dressing is always perfect! We also like the sauce but the chicken Parmesan is deep fried and a too crispy for our taste. We especially appreciate that they willingly bring you a boat... More

Our family (wife and college age son and his girlfriend) ate at Ferrari's in Schenectady last Saturday. We had made a reservation the day before, and although they had lost it, the waiter remembered our name and gave us a table anyway. Ferrari's is an old-school Italian restaurant, replete with photos of family, scenes of Italy, etc. Menu is large... More

This place is known locally for amazing Italian food. My wife and I visited a few years ago and had a terrible meal. Figured we would try again....big mistake. I sincerely don't understand what people love about this restaurant. I gave it one star because the service was decent snd the portions were big. Other than that the food and... More

One of the top Italian restaurants known for great food, large portions and excellent service. Our party of nine enjoyed a feast which began with a hot Italian Antipasto,greens & beans and stuffed clams. By this time our cravings were kicking in. We all knew this would be a night of over eating. The main course included veal parm hanging... More

Home made pastas fresh pounded sweet tender veal and crispy cold salads. The atmosphere is old but comfortable. Several homemade pastas to choose from so whatever your craving they should... More

Caught a really bad night? Wrote an excellent review a year ago and went back with same friends to celebrate his birthday. Scallopined veal was cut thick and was chewy in both dishes ordered. Eggplant parmesan was not breaded mushy and watery and had to be sent back after nobody at table could eat it. It appeared the lasagna was... More

Had the lobster ravioli special and my wife had the Chicken Pompeii. Great ravioli with a lot of lobster. The chicken was enough for 2. Had doggy bags and one was the cream puff! Bigger than a softball.

I was back in the area for the holidays and could not miss an opportunity to eat at Ferrari's! (Twice!) Their eggplant parm and pasta with broccoli, garlic and oil are to die for! Many other wonderful selections as well! Love the food; it's a great family run business, If you have not tried it, go! You will thank your... More
