Great Italian Food and service from a family owned restaurant. Have been many times and always enjoy the authentic experience.

Pasta faggoli soup was flavorless, served lukewarm with pasta undercooked. Pasta with chicken entree had bites of chicken that were dry and hard as well as flavorless, probably cooked previously, frozen and defrosted or heated in a microwave to the consistency of cardboard.
Service was slow and inattentive. Seems like the longtime owner/proprietor is no longer there and who knows what happened to the chef?

My fiancé and I had dinner here for Valentine's weekend. The evening started on a good note with a special request accommodated and a lovely, quiet ambiance. However, once our waiter took our order, he did not check on us at all until right before we requested the bill. We were the first customers in the restaurant for the first 30 minutes as we had an early reservation with only 3 other tables by the time we left. My fiancé's dinner was delightful, however his drink glass was not refilled until he was almost finished wither his meal. For a special occasion, the service left a lackluster feeling.

Food was a little cold when we got it. The waiter was not very attentive. They overbooked as well and it took 30 minutes after our reservation before we sat down.

Took a long time for our orders to be taken. Ordered the lamb chops medium rare and it arrived well done and petrified looking. Definitely not worth a $35 dish. Overall a waste of over $80+.

We really enjoyed the experience and would recommend Ferrari's to others. There was a wedding part there, but was cordon off to reduce disturbance. The food was excellent, as was the service.

Really disappointed- we’ve historically have had good food here but this time nothing we had was special. Very bland and chicken was rubbery.

I am an Italian/American who brought my wife and my Family visiting from Italy for the Holidays for what everyone agreed is very authentic and well prepared lunch. Arriving a little early for our noon reservation, we found some staff making (by hand) ravioli and tortellini! Each of us ordered different entrees and shared to determine the best choice off the menu. We unanimously agreed that all were outstanding. Go sometime! You will not be disappointed for sure!!

Celebrated our anniversary - hadn’t been in years but remembered how good it was and it did not disappoint! 10+ years later and it was as good as I remembered. Very old school Italian, authentic ambiance, service, and food. Great value, amazing traditional Italian food. A true hidden gem - only a couple other tables full on a Wednesday, which was perfect for an intimate dinner. Will become a regular spot for us.

Ordered the stuffed veal chop and added the red wine peppercorns sauce - I died and went to heaven. Kitchen and waitstaff work very well to ensure complete perfection even when customizing a dish (which is a rare thing I see in restaurants) - I felt incredibly welcome throughout the entire dining experience. Pasta carbonara side was delectable and made for a great morning after snack :)

The most amazing beef carpaccio I've ever had. Pasta dish was wonderful--cooked perfectly, as were the clams. The service was impersonal and offbeat but improved toward the end. Our reservation was at 730 and it took over 10 minutes for our drink order to be taken (the restaurant was not busy), at which time we also ordered an appetizer. At 8 pm, the owner came over and we were were being rushed to place our order, he stated "the kitchen closes at 9" and we were confused since it was barely 8 pm. We would like to return with the hope that service is better and staff doesn't seem annoyed. Not to mention, it was my husband's birthday, which they failed to notice on the reservation, as I had requested a table for 2. I also had to ask for our table candle to be lit. Small details and nuances that truly make a difference in someone's experience, albeit, deserving of a second chance.

It was an intimate dining experience. The owners greeted us and visited our table to be sure all was good. It was entertaining to watch the lady make and cook the appetizer bread in the brick oven. We will go back.

Ferrari’s was great as usual and the perfect place to celebrate my Moms Birthday. The restaurant is so cozy with great atmosphere, service, and of course amazing food. Everything was so hot and fresh! The sweet family who owns it just tops it off. We had a great time.
