Family run since the 70's, this is a restaurant many locals go to for wonderful Italian food. Pizza, Pasta, Sandwiches...a whole assortment of culinary delights. You can't go wrong here. Small, intimate, not fancy at all. Go!

Let's see, my family has enjoyed eating there for over 26 years. Is that good enough? Wish they still were open for lunch. Make sure to let them know if you want thin or regular crust for the pizza. Our family enjoys having the Sam's Special Salad vs. regular garden/dinner salad. Like macaroni & cheese? Try their version. Kids love... More

This restaurant started by Sam & Betty Ferraro and now their daughter Sarah has taken over the helm. Their Chicken Franchise and Broccoli & Rigoletti Pasta has been our family favorites for about 50 years. Try... More

The atmosphere is like a typical Italian restaurant. The service is good and the waitresses are very friendly. The food is good and it is cooked well but like many Italian restaurants today the sauce is sweet.

This restaurant in mid town Ventura has no ambience, is surprising popular, loud when full, and the food quite average for a speciality restaurant. On tis evening we had spaghetti and meatballs, (disappointing meatball....a bit of mystery meat tasting) and a fettucini alfredo shrimo and scallops....chewy scallops/shrimp. The garlic bread was good, the salads were good, and the service good.... More

Rigoletti w/ broccoli was perfect. I don't eat pasta often, (almost never) but this was fantastic. Dining area is extremely small, but we arrived early and were seated right away. Staff was attentive and helpful.

We are so happy to have Ferraro's open for lunch---had their "small" antipasto salad and a medium pizza this noon, both wonderful. I hadn't been there in a long time due to a move out of the area, very glad to find it's even better than before. Can't wait to try the other offerings. My husband hadn't eaten there before,...

With the passing of the sweet and dedicated owner, her daughter is striving to continue the legacy of her parents restaurant ,and has added some much needed cosmetic repair to the interior, updated the menu, and has added weekly specials. Nothing about these changes has taken away from warmth and charm of this local Italian Staple. I always order the... More
