“Slow service and over priced”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

We took 6 friends here on a Sunday night. All the tables were filled in the restaurant so they seated us in the bar with all the quaintness of a late night Howard Johnson's. All the waiters were buried and the kitchen was backed up with every table grumbling. It took over an hour just to have our salads served, and the entres arrived 2 hours after we were seated. When the food did arrive it was bland, tasteless pasta no better than a frozen dinner - and over priced for even a decent meal! We won't be back.

“Excellent food, stand-out service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Ferrari's has a formal atmosphere, good for romantic dinner for two or an upscale business dinner. Wouldn't mind seeing a little bit more variety on the menu, but overall well worth it. Service was outstanding - friendly, on top of things, and very accommodating. Nice outdoor patio to dine outside, in addition to a little known area in the back to enjoy a post-dinner cigar, desserts, and a game of Bocce (they provide the balls if you ask). Only downside was at night, no lights outside on the Bocce court. Regardless, I would highly recommend.

“European suave”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Friendly like your family, way better than average selection of Europena food, Italian style, all very well presented, with great taste. Atmosphere was warm and relaxed.

“Birthday dinner was unsatisfactory”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Sorry, but this visit was a big bust. Our family of four went to celebrate my adult daughter's birthday and three out of the four of us were less than satisfied with our meal. My husband had a bowl of the vegetable soup, which was bland and less than satisfying. I had the sausage and pasta dish which had way too much pasta for the sausage and cheese that was hidden in the middle and my daughter had a scallop dish which was also less than satisfying. My son had the lamb chops and he felt that they were very good. We've had tastier, more satisfying and better food at Olive Garden and Carraba's. I'm writing now because I just reviewed my credit card bill and the dinner cost us $130., without wine or dessert. Pricey for such an unsatisfactory dining experience. I'm the first one to encourage "new" restaurants and certainly want this one to succeed because we love Italian food, but money is tight in this economy and my money spent has to return an excellent experience and this wasn't.
