Francesco & Jane Secchi, who hail from Italy and England respectively, serve Northern & Southern Italian cuisine with emphasis on fresh seafood, steaks and pasta from Francesco's native Sardegna. The adjoining wine bar serves flights of wines and martinis with a more casual menu consisting of hand- tossed pizzas baked in a mesquite wood-fired oven. Stop in today for a taste of Italy!

“Excellent Italian cuisine - dedicated to fresh ingredients”
Reviewed July 23, 2011

Our first time eating here for an anniversary date - WOW. Requested a quiet table on open table and received a nice booth in a quiet corner. Atmosphere is classic italian, classy but not over the top formal.

Wine selection is very good - available by glass, half or whole bottle.

Flatbread brought to the table first was delicious. Attentive service throughout dinner.

We enjoyed Salmon with vodka cream sauce - cooked perfectly. Second entree was extra large shrimp in a linguine sauce.

Our favorite part of the meal was the use of fresh spices. After dinner we went for a drink on patio and were surprised to see a fresh herb garden beside the restaurant. That sealed the deal for us, that level of dedication to the use ofof fresh ingredients means we will be back again.

“Great Food and Romantic Ambiance”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

My husband and I enjoy eating out together because we both work out of town during the week and only get to spend weekends together. We have begun frequenting Ferrari's Italian Villa in Grapevine and get more impressed with each visit.

The service is excellent. When you are seated the specials are on display at the Antipasta Bar like in a deli. Very appealing way to display the specials. I have ordered the Sea Bass and Mahi Mahi specials and both were cooked perfectly. The sides are fresh and inventive.

My husband had the ground veal and spinach cannolli which was delicious. We ordered a nice bottle of Cab which was reasonably priced, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

The restaurant manager was nice enough to send over a complimentary dessert, Tiramisu, which we really enjoyed, even though we don't need the calories!

I highly recommend this restaurant for a nice, quiet, romantic evening. Father's Day might be a good time to try it out!
