I cannot rate this restaurant high enough! By far THE BEST Italian restaurant ever! No matter what you get, you won’t be disappointed! The homemade spaghetti and veal parm are delicious. Great atmosphere with good waitresses/waiters. Only downfall is, it’s small inside.

I joined some friends for lunch on a snowy winter day, but the restaurant was warm and friendly inside. Lunch entrees are delicious, a tremendous bargain, and a challenge to finish (everyone took leftovers home). There are fewer and fewer family restaurants remaining in Schenectady,...More

Had dinner at Ferrari’s in the heart of Mont Pleasant in Schenectady. Restaurant is located in a tough part of town with limited parking. The venue is limited inside as well with a long narrow sitting area. Food is very good with large portions.
