One of Dallas’ most revered Italian restaurants for more than 25 years. Francesco & Jane Secchi, who hail from Italy and England respectively, serve Northern & Southern Italian cuisine with emphasis on fresh seafood, steaks and pasta from Francesco's native Sardegna. The adjoining wine bar serves flights of wines and martinis with a more casual menu consisting of hand- tossed pizzas baked in a mesquite wood-fired oven. Stop in today for a taste of Italy!

We visited during DFW Restaurant Week and were not disappointed. Great ambiance. Beautifully plated food. Butternut squash mezzalune for appetizer. I got the sea bass and my husband got the lamb. And for dessert, tiramisu and cheesecake. I glanced at the regular menu and the least expensive entree was $19.

The hotel desk recommended this restaurant, and it did not disappoint. While expensive, the menu was worth the price. I started with a 6- choice antipasto plate from an extensive fresh antipasto bar. Servings were generous. I followed with Caesar salad, which had an artistic presentation: whole romaine lettuce leaves topped with thinly sliced parmesan and crouton slices. The piece... More

We were introduced to Cioppino on the west coast several years ago and were so happy to find it on the menu at Ferraris. It's pricy, but oh so delicious. I would drink the broth if I could without embarrassing my husband. My only complaint is that the lobster was a bit chewy. But hey, we're pretty far away from... More

We dined here for dinner and it was very good. The pizza is amazing, and the pasta dishes my husband and I had were very good. The staff was very friendly, service was a little slow. There are 2 restaurants at this location. One is white table cloth fine dining, the other is more casual. You can only order pizza... More

This is an excellent choice for authentic Italian food. The gnocchi is particularly spectacular, and the chef obviously knew how to prepare some outstanding risotto. The craft beer also was quite good--even though the selection was very limited. For wine lovers, the list on that front looked more than adequate. On the negative side, the Caesar salad was not what... More

This is a nice restaurant and the service was great and at the end the large flaming ice cream cake was entertaining. But the portions were small and not what I was expecting. It says it is a italian steak house but not much steak. I do have to say that this was a business dinner and I did not... More

First, I'm not a fan of seeing deconstructed plastic food specials on my way in. Very nice bar area and ambiance. In fact two bar areas. Food was very good. Kitchen was a little slow. Our table had the strip, Marsala, spaghetti, cappuccino and desert. Cocktails were very good and wine list was good. Watched bananas foster prepared at table... More

A popular eatery, the place was packed when we dined. Starting with an unusual Caesar salad, my main was the amazing Filet Tagliata, tender smoked beef grilled with balsamic vinegar... delicious. The side dishes were beyond generous and didn't get finished - mushrooms, potatoes and spinach. Sadly, no room for dessert. This was a fabulous meal, the service was good,... More
