One of DFW’ most revered Italian restaurants for more than 30 years. Francesco & Jane Secchi, who hail from Italy and England respectively, serve Italian cuisine with emphasis on fresh seafood, all natural steaks and fresh pasta from Northern and Southern Italy .

The adjoining Ferrari's Pizza Patio serves Neopolitan style pizzas baked in an oak burning oven with craft beers on tap and a very nice wine list.

Excellent preparation of gnocchi, carpaccio, and rack of lamb. Wait staff was very attentive to our needs without being overbearing.

The antipasta never fails to impress. My better half ordered the Sea Bass, which was terrific and I went back to the Pollo Valdostana, which I hadn't had in some time. I had forgotten how great that dish is; excellent choice if I say so myself.

A neighborhood gem we have been totally missing. Our family dines out every Saturday night and I have no idea how we missed this. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. Service was excellent. And the food was some of the best we have had and portion sizes were large. The Risotto Funghi was flavorful and cooked to perfection. The table-side finishing of the filet was fun to watch, and the meat and sauce were excellent. But the best was the gnocchi. Most Italian restaurants end up with heavy dumplings. But these were light and fluffy and the sauce was flavorful. We will be back!

We have eaten at this restaurant once before which was an ok experience but we thought we would give it another chance. The first visit the waiter was not truthful on the availability of the bottle of wine we wanted stating they were out. Then the manager or someone came by and stated they suddenly found a bottle after the waiter recommended a higher priced one which was $30 above our stated price range we said we wanted. This time, I had called first to ask if they were having their regular menu to which the answer was yes since it was NY eve. When we arrived for our reservation they promptly seated us but not in the main dining room but a side room, one that was plain, sparsely occupied and not festive with decorations. It felt like a banquet hall and not an Italian restaurant. The reason we chose this restaurant was for the ambiance which offset the high prices. Before the hostess left our table, I asked if we could be seated in the main dining area, and she stated "that's for those who have reservations" I told her that we have reservations and then she said, there's not room. So, to not totally ruin the evening I gave in. That's when we discovered that in fact they weren't offering their full menu as we were told. Our table was bare and my husband had to get the salt and pepper shakers from an unoccupied table next to us, including a candle. The waiter was extremely anxious all evening and kept saying they were so busy. After the main course we planned to have dessert. We had mentioned it to the waiter earlier when we split a salad and said we were saving room for dessert. Then, he brought us to go containers and our check. We stated we were going to have dessert but since the entire evening was a disappointment, we decided just to leave.
We wanted to have a nice NY eve dinner in a festive and lively atmosphere and ended up in a drab, not even outfitted table and room at the same high prices. What a terrible disappointment. We will not be going back again.

This is a great restaurant for a special occasion, a special family dinner, or as a place to meet friends and visit over a nice meal. It’s a little too expensive for us to consider it for a casual family meal. It is a lovely restaurant with a small bar. It has a nice wine list. The staff is very attentive and service is excellent. The menu has many dining options with daily specials. We love that we can make reservations online through Open Table.

Later table Christmas eve. Seemed like the waiter was trying to close instead of taking care of us however I dont think it was his fault I believe management should have covered his other duties so he could make the last table feel like the first. I recently retired from the industry and didnt appreciate a hind shank passed off as osso bucco that's pretty weak. Polenta was good food was good but misleading. The Ferrari probably needs a trip to modena for a tune up.

My family enjoyed a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner. Had drinks in the Sidecar Tavern first, then a delicious meal with attentive service. We love the Secchi family's hospitality and the quality of their food. The ambience is beautiful, elegant, but not stuffy. Looking forward to the spring time to spend time on the expansive patio in the Sidecar Tavern section of the restaurant.

The restaurant was very noisy due to large Christmas parties. Overall service was okay, though the waiter was a toucher. The appetizer, Fritto Misto, was excellent but way too much. In the main courses we found the Orecchiette with Sausage Ragu to be very bland and the Risotto Con Salsicce E. Fungi, though good, had way to much truffle oil on it. As a result of the visit we do not plan on coming back and if anyone asks we will be forth coming to let them know why.

Have always loved Ferrari’s, but that special feeling was just not there today. The little details that have always made it a first class restaurant were missing. It was clear that the boss was not there today.

This is the best Italian food in the area of Grapevine, Southlake and Colleyville area. I love the gnocchi here, steaks are seasoned to perfection and ambiance is beautiful. Great service, ask for Regal he is the best. Make sure you try the crab claws for an appetizer. Seabass is fresh and best tasting around. I the chicken and mushroom dish.

My salmon was ordered "not to be over cooked". It came out looking way overcooked & was horribly dry & way overcooked. Surprised the waiter even brought it to me. Second one was just fine, however, was our anniversary dinner, so we each ate our meal separately. Rather disappointing.
