A word from Ferrari's Italian Villa
One of Dallas’ most revered Italian restaurants for more than 25 years. 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!

    We've never been disappointed at Ferrari's & would definitely recommend it to our friends. We're pleased Ferrari's continues to participate in Restaurant Week. It's a fantastic way for people to experience a restaurant they have never tried before & once they do, we're sure they'll go back again & again for the fantastic food & service.

    For $35.00 you have the option to order a grilled filet (tagliatelli) which has to be dressed with some type of balsamic vinegar prior to grilling. The ultimate result is a steak whose flavor is difficult to find a comparison to. You also receive the signature bread-which is more like a pizza, and a choice of side, and glass of wine. One of the best meals, and bargains, in the metroplex!

I had to send my food back twice for various reasons. I would like to try it again it's such a nice restaurant but this experience scared me away for good! We were the only ones in the dining area at 8:30 on a Sunday night I guess that should have told us something!!!

    For our meal, we had the beef carpaccio (appetizer) followed by sea bass topped with lump crab and also the veal daily special ( 2 entrees). All were perfectly prepared and served. We used to drive to Ft Worth or north Dallas to go to Lawry's or other places for a nice meal, and now we always go to Ferrari's instead. Grapevine is just a 5 minute drive and we get a comparable (or better) meal at a lower price.

    I appreciated the customs in Italy that a meal was to be savored and enjoyed. I have since been looking for a place that was more authentic at home. Ferrari's Italian Villa filled all of my check lists requirements. The food was delicious and more authentic, the service we received was attentive but not intrusive. We were not hurried. The ambience was very romantic, dimly lit, but not too dark. I took my husband there for his birthday and a romantic evening. The acoustics were good, and I did not have to talk loudly for my husband to hear me. Some may view this restaurant be a bit pricy, but the portions were huge, and the whole experience was well worth the price.

    my husband & i dined here for the first time recently, & we've talked about it every day since! the food was just great - not "overly italian" like i feared. the bread/flatbread they bring while your main course is being prepared was one of the best things! another unexpectedly tasty dish was the $6 side of spaghetti. i love spicy foods, so i asked if they could add a little spice to it - the result was perfection. for the main course, we both had steak dishes, which were great as well.

    Way overpriced for mediocre food & poor service. 7pm on a Saturday night and restaurant was mostly empty. Asked for a drink menu but waiter didn't want to bother finding a drink menu, just said what do you want?. Our large round table backed up to curtain which made it hard to have a conversation or move around. I ordered wine, but it arrived after my meal. Asked for separate checks because some of us had wine & some didn't, but the waiter would only split the check. Awkward since some paid more than they should. Left feeling disappointed and won't go back.

    Ferrari's, despite it's odd location, is an excellent spot for a relaxing evening. Service is always terrific (Victor, particularly, is a great waiter). Food is prepared with attention to detail; ask the waiter to put together an antipasto appetizer for you.

    Ferrari's consistently delivers the best Cioppino in the Metroplex, topped by a lobster tail, full of a variety of seafood in a rich spicy broth. My wife loves the tableside prepared jumbo shrimp scampi, which is flambed and comes with a yummy pesto linguini. We top off the evening with a rich Bananas Francesco featuring two flavors of gelato and is incredible. As Francesco, the owner, is Sardinian, we love to pair the meal with a Sardinian Soletta Umberto Cannonau wine which brings out the flavors of the seafood and pasta. Great place for a special meal.

    We were looking for a place to go while visiting my brother, who moved to the area a couple months ago. We chose the place based on previous Yelp reviews. Our server was very friendly and paid special attention to my niece and nephew. We ate on the more casual side and were able to order off both menus. Don't really understand the dual menu but the food was excellent. The calamari appetizer was cooked perfectly and the three dipping sauces were great. We got several items from the antipasto bar and they were all really good. The Caesar salad had a beautiful presentation. I had the pappardelle with Bolognese and it was delicious. I would definitely want to go back next time I'm in the Southlake area.

    A bunch of ladies met to send off one to another state, so we were pleased that the restaurant was quiet enough to converse with each other. We couldn't have been happier about the food preparation/taste and the attention of the staff. Of note, there are quite a few private rooms to have gatherings of family, colleagues, or friends which are not always easy to find. I will definitely be back.

    COLD-The visual menu presented upon being seated felt like a gimmick. There was a fish special that we were not told about. It was definitely something I would have ordered. My first choice on the menu was Filet Tagliata-waiter said they had run out. I inquired about the Lamb Osso Buco and was told that it was delicious, ONLY ONE ORDER LEFT-WHAT?! OK, ordered it. It was described to have parmesan polenta-gremolata with horseradish. NO horseradish at all. Dish tasted like overpriced pot roast with a LOT of gravy. Seriously. HOT-Crab Claws Alla Russa tasty albeit rich& smallish. Caprese salad delicious, especially the arugula topping. Risotto Funghi w/ Italian sausage was absolutely DIVINE! Wine selections (by glass) & gelato dessert good!

Every item on the menu is well conceived and well executed, and the house-made gnocchi in Gorganzola sauce is absolutely addictive!

    Dining at the bar here is a smart move, where, for only $35.00, you get an 8 oz filet, a side of pasta of your choice, a glass of house cabernet (which is actually good, by the way!), and of course, the standard, seasoned bread with marina sauce. The ambience is also very good!

    Our families met at Ferrari's for Easter Sunday Brunch. Everyone, even the picky eaters, enjoyed his/her meal. With the choices of breakfast items, traditional Italian pastas and an exceptional menu, we all were happy with our choices. The restaurant is delightful with terrific service. A nice feature of the restaurant is the fabric draped on the ceiling. It is very attractive and keeps the chatter of conversation and restaurant noise down to a minimum. This makes it very nice for those who are hard of hearing. We could actually hear the conversation at our table....how nice!

    Although there are two Ferrari's in the DFW area, this location far exceeds the Addison location. Both have great food, but the atmosphere and service at the Grapevine location is exceptional. The bar area is conducive to have drinks with a few friends before dinner in a quiet, subdued atmosphere. Restaurant noise level was very low, which is unusual these days and very nice. Decor was beautiful with low lighting. Servers are great and the sommellier was very down to earth and helpful in helping us choose a wine.
