Description: 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!

The food, service, and atmosphere were wonderful! It was not overcrowded or hurried. The waitstaff were kind and informative. At Christmas time they had upside down trees suspended from the ceiling and twirling. Go hungry because you don't want to leave any!

Our family ate there for the first time last weekend. Came highly recommended and we weren't disappointed. We ate in the pizza patio (inside) so we could order the pizzas. Food was really good. My boys ordered pizzas, and we had the lasagna (amazing) and the lamb osso buco (also very good). We also shared a couple appetizers and desserts,... More

Very rude hostess, comicly slow service. Very disappointing! Our waitress forgot about us and messed up drinks orders twice. We could not even go to the bar to order our own drinks. They told us to order from our waitress. Hostess came to kick us out of the private room even after we told her we had not gotten all... More

We were in town on business and we treated to a night at Ferraris. We were met at the door by the owners, I believe, and were personally escorted to our table as they showed us some options. The food options were great and the sea bass special that evening was fantastic. We had a large group and when our... More

Exceptional restaurant in the Grapevine area, probably a little out of place for such fine dining. The location probably explains the or miss crowd depends heavily on groups and conference goers from the nearby Gaylord Hotel. The Silver Fox across the street has a similar clientele but I think Ferrari's makes a better steak. Large groups from local conventions can... More

After finding an hour wait at several chain restaurants, we remembered seeing Ferrari's right down the street. On our arrival, We were warmly greeted, seated in a nice corner booth, and were immediately glad we had changed restaurants. The lighting and ambience were very nice, the waitstaff attentive, but not overbearing, and the food was EXCELLENT!! We will definitely be... More

My wife and I stopped by their Pizza Patio in August 2014. This is a very nice Italian Restaurant with an adjoining pizza operation. We had a pepperoni pizza and the waitstaff gave us an order of garlic bread. I was very impressed with both.

As you enter the restaurant, you are given a quick glimpse of the various offerings of antipasta that can be chosen by the items you enjoy most. After this, order the veal chop which is scrumptous and cooked to perfection. The accompanying breads with the meal is awesome as well. Restaurant has a great wine list. Nice ambience and always...
