Not the most romantic or pretty restaurant to visit, but the food will leave you wanting to come back. Old fashioned Italian home style food. Everything is delicious. The staff have been there forever and knows their stuff.

Best to make reservations as the space fills up fast. Dinner starts out with the fried Calamari overly generous portions. The Lasagna is a solid brick of joy. Pace of service is smooth and friendly.

This is a warmest, friendliest family-run restaurant you'll ever want. From Colleen, who oversees the bar, to Aunt Mary, who seats you, to every server and even the bus staff, they just couldn't be better. And the food is amazing. if you want an inexpensive meal, check out pasta night, and many other value items on the menu, but it... More

Old world Italian Restaurant. Excellent food. There were 5 of us for dinner and everyone got something different. Everyone was satisfied with their choice. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. Would go back in a heartbeat. Try the flatbread - outstanding. Cannoli's were great too.

Ferrari's is a traditional old family run business. You'd expect great service and authentic Italian tastes and you will not be disappointed. Portions are very large. If there are three or more in your party try the family salad. There are daily specials and they are real bargains. Creme puff was just huge. After one came to our table several... More

It's the old Italian eatery that serves the local people not only in Schenectady but Scotia, Glenville, Rotterdam and visitors from out of town. The owners as well as the staff are extremely friendly & the service as good as... More

Love it here!!! They have the best Italian food!! We go here often, they make you feel like family and the food is delicious! We look forward to their garlic bread and salad along with a veal parm or veal Francaise and their homemade cavatelli. Their veal is tender so if you like veal you have to try! They also... More
