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.

One of my favorites

Love the coziness, menu offers a lot. Filet is always great as is the service. Calamari is delish as is the Ferrari's salad. A bit pricey so I only tend to go once or twice a year but do enjoy it every time!

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

The food is amazing but the service leaves much to be desired. I decided that instead of dining in like usual because of previous service that I had received, that I would place a carry-out order. I arrived and found that the designated spots for "Carry-Out Parking" were full as well as EVERY OTHER SPOT were too. I understand why... More

While the service was very attentive and wine and menu selection are nice, the food wasn't prepared as nicely as it once was. We used to dine here fairly often, until recent visits found us wishing for far, far less garlic, which seems to be in everything. Nice ambience, excellent bakery, legendary desserts and friendly staff make it worth a... More

Ferrari's Little Italy is a real treasure in downtown Madeira. The food is excellent but the bakery is an exceptional suprise. You'll love the breads.

Had lasagna & sausage hoagie for lunch, and was excellent. The sauce is traditional and the ambiance very nice. We will be back.

It had been several years since we had eaten at Ferrari's because we had moved out of the area. Stopped by on a busy Friday without reservations, but they could not have been more accommodating. Service was exceptional and we were near a fireplace on a cold evening. Very nice! Apps were good, although scallops were slightly undercooked. Everyone had... More

We had overseas guests visiting, tried Ferrari's for lunch during the busy holiday season. We have been there many times and we weren't disappointed this time. Great food (the salads are huge, so share one if you want to have any other dish), we tried the pizza and their seafood special. Service was outstanding, the food all freshly prepared ...... More

We have been here once before. The food is pretty good, but not great. This time we sat outside which was great. The lighting from the small lights in the tree was perfect. We split Scampi Antonio as an appetizer which sounds better than it really was. For entrees, we had the Linguini Rosa with Scallops and Pollo Parmesan. For... More
