Ferrari's Little Italy & Bakery is located in the heart of Madeira, across from Madeira Kroger. Ferrari's is an authentic Italian Restaurant featuring Northern & Southern fare with excellent value & generous portions. Ferrari's has been operating for over twelve years and is family owned and operated by the Bassano family. The restaurant has two private dining rooms available for private parties, rehearsal dinners, corporate meetings, or family gatherings. We also have an outside patio dining area that is beautifully landscaped with an Italian mural and a stone lighted waterfall. Ferrari's offers full service dining, carry-out, and catering, with an on-premise Italian bakery and Italian grocery. At Ferrari's we feature family style dining. Our portions are large enough to share, they often border on the surreal. We invite you to enjoy the vera cucina piccola italia, the true cooking of Little Italy.

Best outdoor dining

The food is really good at Ferraris, but it's the outdoor dining that seals the deal for me. I eat here only during those seasons I can eat outside. It's that pretty. There's a water fountain, rock patio, greenery and just an atmosphere to take you away. I have never had a bad meal here either... read more

We enjoyed a great Italian meal at Ferrari's Little Italy and Bakery. I had the traditional spaghetti with marinara sauce, but tasted all of our families other selections. They were all delicious. The service was excellent, the menu was varied and extensive, and although the restaurant was crowded the noise level was low. All of the selections were reasonably priced.

I visited my daughter and young granddaughter in Madeira and suggested we dine outside at Ferraris again as we had last summer. They have such a nice intimate patio as earlier reviewers have mentioned. I must say their portions are QUITE generous as I had the Linguini Aglio and it filled a whole large serving bowl with crisp vegetables and... More

A friend found this restaurant online. Ate here on July 4th. Service was great. Bread was great. Eggplant parm was great! Not too cheesy, sauce wasn't sweet. Wouldn't change anything about my meal. Will return to this restaurant if I'm ever near Cincinnati again.

Italian restuarant located off the usual path located in Madeira. Very local to the neighborhoods around the restuarant. Traditional Italian menu. My favorite is the Ferrari salad with blackened shrimp or the lasagna. The portions are HUGE, even the small size. They have a great patio out back.

Can't say this was anything good or special. Food was fresh, but the pasta was under seasoned and bland. For a family Italian Restaurant I'd have expected allot more. The Lasagna wasn't bad, but nothing a good home cook couldn't equal or do better

While visiting the south east side of Cincinnati we decided to go for a ride and eat at Ferrari’s – Little Italy – and Bakery. It might be a little out of the way for travelers but worth the experience. They have an amazing assortment of breads and baked goods, a very nice wine and beverage list and the food... More

We threw a surprise dinner for our daughter's 13th birthday at Ferrari's. Day of dinner everything was set perfectly. Food came out all at once, hot, delicious and fresh. All 16 of our guest were more than happy. (Girls had Ferrari's pizzas and lasagna. Adults had Tortellini Florentine, Penne Mediterranean and salads.) Our waitress was new (3 month on the... More

With all my friends and family that have gone and raved about Ferrari's I figured it was time to go. Mediocre at best. Service was slow, very slow. Menu choices were typical Italian fare. Tried the Calamari for an appetizer, awful. Too much grease and overcooked, like chewing on rubber bands. Caesar salad was just ok. Drowned in dressing. Dinner... More

I really do not like giving bad reviews for restaurants as I want all private business owners to do well but I cannot give this restaurant a good review. I have been roped into dining here several times and have always been disappointed. I usually order the spaghetti or a a salad as they are edible. The pasta dishes are... More
