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!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/31/2014
    We discovered this wonderful Italian restaurant about 3 weeks ago. It was so fabulous that we have returned twice with two different groups of friends. Everyone absolutey raved about the ambience, the service, and the food. During our second visit the owner and his wife both came to our table personally and even gave us a complete tour of the wonderful restaurant includes fabulous rooms for private groups from 15 to 165. It also includes a Pizza Shop. My wife and I had traveled to Italy (Milan, Venice, Rome, Florence, and Capri ) in May of this year and the food in Italy was simply the best. Thus we were looking for a restaurant that could emulate our experiences in Italy and we were not disappointed.

    Chose this restaurant during restaurant week, 4 of us chose the restaurant week menu. 3 of the 4 meals were good, the steak had too much rosemary and was a bit over cooked. Sea bass and Shrimp meals were good. Appetizers were very good. Service and atmosphere were excellent. A bit too expensive for every day but good for a special occasion. 1 appetizer, 3 glasses of wine, 2 $35 meals came to $98....and that was after they took off a $25 gift certficate.

  • Only good if you LOVE salt!
    LoveGoodFood
    Dined on 8/24/2014
    I remember eating there last year and thinking the food was a bit salty, but then, most chefs love salt. This year, our food, while cooked to perfection in terms of doneness, presentation, etc., was almost inedible because of all the salt. Even the steamed broccoli was salty. My overall impression of almost all of the food was salt, salt, salt. They really need to ask their patrons if they want salt added to their food in its preparation or if they prefer to add it at the table, if desired. With so many people being health conscious these days, and cutting back on salt, saturated fats, etc. this is an important issue. . .

    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!

    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 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.
