This is a great winery and restaurant. They have great live music outside. The venue is large, so the wait time is reasonable. We all enjoyed dinner and wine!

We have been here many times and today took our entire family. As always, the service was great, the atmosphere was fantastic. When the food was served my son found a hair in his pasta. We were sitting close enough to the kitchen to notice...that none of the cooks were wearing hair nets hats, or other protective items. This of course is a violation of Ohio food service law. We have always enjoyed our visits here, and will go back. Our hope is the management reads this and educates the staff accordingly.More

When friends chose to eat here I wasn't happy. But last Saturday one of the luncheon specials was a hamburger. Finally, something for those of us who don't eat Italian! It was so delicious! Their coffee is so good, too.

This was our second stop on a shuttole tour of local vineyards. Ferrante is highly regarded, and while I did not admire them as much as others eem to, I thinkthey're top flight. I have learned that I do not like the red wines of...this region, which to me are overly acidic. The white wines, however, often hve great delight. The Chardonnay here, 70% unoaked and 30% oaked, it one of the more delicious we have found, so several bottles cam home with us. We also enjoyed a very good spinach, artichoke and chees deip. It was interesting how they serve the tasting flights. Unlike most vineyards, they have several tasting flighs pre-selected. We got the dry reds and the dry whites. They arrived on a tray in little plastic c shot glasses, with one full-sized wine glass. You pour the shot into the real glass, where you can swirl and sniff and act like a real wine connoisseur---a nifty way to serve it, I thought.More

Called to make a Reservation for a group of 14 on a Friday night. Jennifer was very friendly and took my Reservation. We were seated in the main Dining Room in a semi-separated group section with a large table. Our Server, Cari, was very friendly...and professional. She was very attentive to our requests. Everyone loved their meals. Some of our group ordered Wine and Cari was able to guide them to which one they would like. The appetizers and entrees were enjoyed by all. The Lemoncello Gelato desert was delicious. We don't get out to NE Ohio very often but would definitely go back the next time we do.More

This is definitely a busy place. Went on a Saturday night, and had to wait, but had wine and live music while waiting which was perfect. A few items weren't available, but dinner was delicious. Highly recommend.

We have been to Ferrante several times with quality service and good food and wine. This last trip however may be our last. A lovely afternoon called for us to visit the wine country and back to Ferrante for their white seafood pizza accompanied by...a nice white wine. First - In the past we were able to dine inside with service even though we were ordering pizza. But even though it was early afternoon 2-230, we were directed to order at the store section. Second - We were given a buzzer to let us know when the order was ready for pickup. We waited and waited and finally I went in about 35 minutes later. The person who took my order said sometimes the buzzer doesn't work (however it did flash when we got it in the first place.) And that the pizza had just come out. Taking the pizza back to the table, we discovered that it was luke warm at best. The cheese had solidified and was unappealing. We had a slice then packaged it up and went home very disappointed. I realize that mistakes can be made but own up to it. If the equipment is faulty, fix it. If one forgets to notify the order is ready, own up and offer to remake the item. If the pizza has been sitting there for awhile, tell the patron (as they will know you were lying as soon as they get it to the table). In short, avoid ordering hot food if taking it to the table outside as you will probably be very disappointed.More

Grounds and accomodations are very nice. Service is excellent. I didn't have any wine, but several in our group purchased bottles, so the wine must be good. The food is a sorry excuse for an italian dinner. Olive Garden would be a better choice, believe...it or not. I will only go back when I have to!More

We’ve been coming to Northern Ohio for nearly a decade and not sure how people rank Ferrante the number one restaurant in Geneva. I have literally never had a good meal here. I keep thinking I am choosing the wrong thing or I had too...much wine, but no, I am really beginning to think this place is just terrible. To be fair, service was fine, and they have decent grounds, and the wine is passable, but my meal on Thursday night was gnocci with beef tips and Gorgonzola. It came out and was like a disgusting soup; I maybe ate a quarter of it. Bread was like some cold bun from Sams Club. The couple we travel with always make us come here, but even he commented that the meatballs were dry as a bone. I mean, how can an Italian place mess up a meatball?! So now, this last meal has sealed the deal and we never have to go again!More

The winery is really pretty with a couple gazebos and a pond. We stopped here for lunch and the food was really good. We started out with the calamari and ordered the Margherita Pizza and Pollo Panini. As far as wine, we really liked the...Raspberry Blanc and Pink Catawba. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful.More

Great way to have a nice dinner while enjoying Geneva Wine Country. Food was tasty. Service is EXCELLENT. People we so nice. Wine was average (We had the red blend, we sampled the Ice Wine....that is good stuff). The price is just right $60.00. I...would highly recommend the mussels (cost extra). Nice job Ferrante....More

My wife had been to various wineries and selected to eat at Ferrante's which we visited several times before. It was a Friday and was busy but our wait was very short. They have various options for entrees etc but we chose the Prix Fixed...Date Night menu for $55 which included First Course and Entre with a bottle of wine. My wife chose the Salmon and I chose the Lemon Chicken with a bottle of their white Gruner. The wine on its own was very good with grapefruit -citrus accents. Our server Joseph did a nice job keeping us happy. The salads was very good and so was both our entres. My lemon chicken was very lemony unfortunately the Gruner accented the citrus flavors to the point that I felt like I was eating a lemon vs a chicken with subtle lemon flavors. My wife tasted the chicken and also commented it was very lemony. I think if we had picked a Riesling the lemon should have been somewhat muted. At this point not certain if too much lemon was used in the dish or the wine just magnified its taste. Note prior to Covid, Ferrante's usually had live music during weekends.More

This was the nicest property of three wineries we visited in the area. They had entertainment and it was very good. We shared a bottle of Cabernet Franc. The wine was good. We also shared their Mussels and Calamari appetizers. The calamari was okay, nothing...to brag about and the mussels were terrible. The grounds were nice. I would go again but obviously not get the food items we ordered. Service was fair at best. Cup of coffee was delivered to table cold.More

Possibly. I think I remember seeing a dog there outside as there was a band playing. You can call them to check and make sure. Food is delicious and the atmosphere is wonderful
