    Went with friends to this highly recommended restaurant ... And all four of us were thoroughly disappointed with the service and our meals. The wine we ordered did not come until after our starters were served. Our starters were mediocre - the ahi crudo was warm, and tasted very fishy. The Burata seemed to be missing in the Panzanella salad. Our mains were inconsistent ... the bucatini entres were fine, but the seabass was over cooked and dry, and the lasagne was way too salty (and was not eaten). When our server noticed that the lasagna was untouched, and was told it was too salty, she asked if we wanted it packed to take home. Very disappointing for the Four Seasons.

    We dined at Ferraro's on the first night of our stay at the Four Seasons. Having previously dined at Ferraro's with mixed results we were giving them another try. Overall, we had a nice dinner and pleasant evening. We were not rushed and the weather was great. The strong point of the dinner was the food which was well prepared and served fresh. Appetizers and salads were great as was our Risotto entrees - food quality was by far much better than our previous visits. Also, the wine list (by the glass and by the bottle) was excellent. The area that "needs improvement" was the guy doing the table service. Frankly he would be an excellent truck driver but his abilities as a waiter were in need of fixing both his approach to the table and his gruff demeanor. This restaurant has been written up many times for table service issues and those issues continue to persist. Overall would we return - absolutely because of the food quality. However, if I saw the same waiter coming to the table I would get up and run away.

    Once again, Ferraro's delivers as one of our top dining destinations. You dine under the stars overlooking the breathtaking sunset over the Pacific. We started with a cocktail in the bar, with views of the fountains and shore, then sat at a lovely table for dinner. The music, violin and guitar, sets the perfect ambiance. Service is impeccable. The salumi menu offers choices for appetizers. My Frutti de Mari (tomato-based sauce with shrimp, calamari, etc.) was delicious. The short ribs were fork-tender. It gets dark as the sun goes down, but the lighting adds a romantic note. This place is not to be missed for a romantic evening in paradise.

    Beautiful romantic atmosphere with great views of the ocean. Candle light, and electric glowing menus for after the sun sets. Nice touches. However, service and food quality were lacking. The server was a little awkward and we barely saw her after taking our order- the bussers and men bringing the water did all the rest of the service. I hate to say it, but the food was something I could have done at home. I would go there again for the atmosphere but the menu was limited and food was just okay. With that being said, the we went back for lunch the next day and it ws FANTASTIC! There are way more menu options and lunch, and the service was fantastic. The raspberry lemonade was delicious, and pizza is cooked in a wood oven!

    I stayed at the four seasons so, this made Ferraro's an easy choice. It's actually one of the few restaurants in Wailea so close to the beach, with a great view of the sunset if you choose to dine around 6ish. Personally, I was looking forward to Italian after eating sushi, seafood and Hawaiian cuisine so often, when we went the wine list was 50% off after 8PM. Prices were reasonable considering most of the hotel restaurants over charged.

    Ferraro's was a wonderful place to celebrate our honeymoon together. Wait staff were very professional, friendly and polite. The view and the food/drinks were amazing! A gorgeous place to view the sunset and then later watch the starry sky. They even gave us a cute complimentary dessert to congratulate us. Well worth the money!

  • Bad Table for two for our honeymoon
    BrianS
    Dined on 8/26/2014
    The table we had should probably be removed from the seating chart, if the restaurant manager cared about every diner's experience. One of the two seats looks directly into a palm tree and the service location area. The other chair sits directly into the pathway. Thus, the majority of people walking up from the beach continually walk behind the table. What was planned to be the highlight dinner of our honeymoon ended in pretty much disappointment. The food was pricey and marginal at best. We tried the Chef's sampler of cheese and meats and it left us with meh. My gnocchi should be disregarded from the menu. I've had better gnocchi from the Trader Joe's frozen food section. The one bright spot of the night was our server. He was fantastic.

    We had seen two recent reviews on Open Table that panned Ferraro's. Thus, we were a bit anxious about it, but frankly, we could not understand why others did not enjoy the restaurant. Perhaps if one were seated in the back of the restaurant near the bar, the ambience would be somewhat lost and it might be distractingly noisy. We were not in the very front, but had a nice table where we could appreciate the view, which was spectacular at sunset. The food was excellent, and the service was very good--perhaps not as good as Spago's or Duo, but still very good. The live music (violinist and guitar) was a nice compliment to the atmosphere. All in all, it was a great last night in Maui.

    Kitchen sunk by large table and took over an hour to get entrees. Service also poor and slow to get anything including drinks. Food was also below expectations. My steak was cold and under seasoned. Easily the worst steak I've had at a comparable quality restaurant. My wife's entree was not as bad but under performed expectations and also bland. Other four seasons restaurants substantially better and are recommended. Great setting for sunset dinner is not worth other deficits.
