Friendly service, solid food!

Good Italian food. Good selection of beer, wine and cocktails. Antipasti di salumi is a good selection of meats and cheese. almost a salad with pickled vegetable (which are a little heavy on the vinegar) and lettuce. Soups are good, try the tomato basil if available. Beef ravioli was a special and... read more

Visited Ferraris Little Italy.. Ordered the crab stuffed Sole, it was terrible. The fish was very dry and rubbery. Side Ceasar Salad was pretty good. I ordered this same dish last year (exactly 14 months ago) and it was amazing. Service was extremely slow and 2nd rate. I won't be back.

On my daughter's recommendation we visited this quaint restaurant in the heart of Maderia. Be sure to make a reservation. The food was served fresh and well presented. My wife had the tortellini with tomato cream sauce. I had the lasagne with a ceasar side salad. The sauces on both dishes were flavorful and typical of what you'd find in... More

The pasta wasn't cooked enough. So they brought us some other, and it too wasn't done. There is el dente and then there is undercooked. Get it right or cook it longer people! The server was slow and seemed out of touch. We noticed too when she refilled our water glass, the tip of her water jug was touching the... More

Until the departure of the former manager, this restaurant was one of my favorites. It was spotlessly clean both inside and out, and the atmosphere was pleasant. The service was efficient and cheerful. The food was tasty. It is no longer the cared-for and well-managed place it used to be.....and that is a shame.

Cute, warm family friendly restaurant. The meal started well with incredible bread basket and shared chopped salad. Our meals though we're just average tasting for the price. Our service was very nice.

I've had the Ferrari's salad and the salmon BLT for lunch. Sooo Delish! My husband raves about both the meatball panini and the Italian sausage panini. Service has always been top notch. At dinner the chicken piccata and the lasagna are amazing. If it's not too hot, definitely eat on the charming patio. My only negative would be that it's... More

We enjoyed a great Italian meal at Ferrari's Little Italy and Bakery. I had the traditional spaghetti with marinara sauce, but tasted all of our families other selections. They were all delicious. The service was excellent, the menu was varied and extensive, and although the restaurant was crowded the noise level was low. All of the selections were reasonably priced.

I visited my daughter and young granddaughter in Madeira and suggested we dine outside at Ferraris again as we had last summer. They have such a nice intimate patio as earlier reviewers have mentioned. I must say their portions are QUITE generous as I had the Linguini Aglio and it filled a whole large serving bowl with crisp vegetables and... More
