I had the opportunity to have two meals during the past week. We were planning a family get together for about 20 people or so. The day before we stopped in to finalize plans and decided to stay for lunch. I had what they called a "steak sandwich". It was an open face affair with two slices of bread buried... More

The portions are pretty large but the taste is only average. I got the chicken cutlets and have had better at some sub shops.

Always very large portions, great sauce and always very good. It's the way Italian food is supposed to be.

The food is so good here that we frequent Ferrari's at least three times a month. The portions are huge. You will definitely leave with a doggie bag! Their homemade fettuccine is delicious. My favorite, Chicken Antonio with a side of homemade fettuccine with garlic & oil. The greens and beans/minestra, eggplant...... I have to stop now because I'm drooling!... More

Fine Italian dishes here. Usually have to wait to be seated but if it wasn't good there wouldn't be a line. Great staff and seperate bar make this an absolute must when in the area. I recommend to all.

Looking for the best Italian food in the area...not a classy place BUT friendly, expertly prepared "old country dishes" serving the best veal in the entire region.

My son recently took a group of us to Ferrari's to celebrate my retirement. I had never heard of the place. When we left that night I couldn't wait to return. We had an incredible dinner of superb Italian food. The staff was wonderful to our entire group. We couldn't have asked for more. As a group we had veal... More

Friendly, fast service, breads to die for and a feast of menu items made it difficult to decide. All of us ordered different items and were more than happy with our choices. Bread was cheerfully refilled. The spumoni ice cream mold was the most delicious I've ever had with real dark chocolate for the bottom layer. We can't wait to... More
