Old school Italian cuisine! The pasta dish I had was awesome! Nice to see real Italian owner and wife having late dinner and involved with management. Cap that with Frank Sinatra and I thought my parents were back.

Great experience. Wish we had Ferrari’s in the Woodlands Texas.

The food was delicious and the restaurant was nice itself. I think the food was over priced and our waiter repeatedly took over 5 minutes to fulfill drink refill requests. No we were not his only table but if you have to ask for a refill twice there is an issue. This is dining out post COVID.

Our family was together so it was a great night to celebrate a number of family milestones and successes. When we have special occasions to celebrate we think first of dining at Ferrari’s. Everything was perfect! Great service, tasty entrees, desserts, and drinks.

Food was amazing! Must try the crab claws! The lamb chops were some of the best I've ever had and I eat lamb chops often and from many different places. The only problem we had was our waiter. When you pay these prices you want excellent service and although he wasn't absolutely terrible, he was well below par. He only had 2 tables while we were there but he was constantly lagging. I had to ask for a refill 4 or 5 times and most of the time he or another waiter would bring the carafe to the table; but for some reason, one of the times he picked up my glass, handed it off to another waiter who brought it into the kitchen, after about 2 minutes, the other waiter brought it back out of the kitchen and handed it back to him where he proceeded to fill it up with the carafe. It was an odd transaction so I just asked for a new water. Unfortunately, I believe we just drew the short straw because we noticed how great the waiter for the table next to us was. He was very personable, explained everything with precision and even though they arrived after us and had 3 times as many people, they got their food before us. I will end with expressing again how great the food was and the owners greeted us and were very involved. Had we maybe had a better waiter it would have been one of the best food experiences.

Ferrari’s is hands down, the best Italian restaurant in the Metroplex. All of the sauces are made fresh, in-house. Nothing is “commissary produced,” where a cook opens large 2 gallons bags of made sauce and calls it “scratch sauce.” Sheet pasta is made in-house in open view for lasagna, fettuccine and other dishes. The “Pomodoro and Marinara” sauce pasta dishes are simply outstanding. I defy one to find a better Spaghetti and Meatballs dish, anywhere. It is really that good. The steak dishes are simply, Outstanding. As a rule, in addition to pasta entree’s, I will order the ribeye steak, “for the table.” The kitchen will cut the finished steak off the bone and slice into strips for sharing. The menu has something for everyone. My only suggestion is the owners allow pizza orders for the restaurant. They have a working wood burning pizza oven in the Ferrari’s side as well as their attached “Sidecar” restaurant (our next stop. I understand the Ferrari’s side is more of an upscale experience, but I do not think a small pizza as an appetizer or a larger pizza as an entree accompaniment to entree pasta and steak would be a very good thing. The owner and his beautiful wife are truly wonderful hosts. They make you feel right at home. A full bar provides any cocktails desired and an excellent wine menu is offered. Ferrari’s IS my go-to for Italian food.

We have celebrated several wedding anniversaries, as well as a number of birthdays and family gatherings at Ferrari’s. Wait staff very professional and courteous. Great wine list. Food is outstanding. Excellent Cosmopolitans and Margaritas. My husband loves the Veal Saltimbocca and I love the Tagliatelle Bolognese. Our grandchildren 10 and 13 have many menu favorites including the lamb and salmon. When family gathers we order several desserts to share. Crowd pleasers seem to be the Bananas Foster, Gelato, and Creme Brûlée.

I don't think they had enough servers/cooks for the crowd that was seated. Reservation on Saturday, 7:30, for our anniversary, but ended up walking after 2 hours, once we finished our bottle of wine and the appetizer. Just a weird night. Seemed like we saw our server every 1/2 hour, which inevitably steered the conversation away from celebrating our anniversary to fretting about the service. We paid for the wine/appetizer and the manager was gracious enough to comp the main entrees, which finally came as we were leaving. Haven't tasted those yet, but they look good.

We were going to use our gift card to Pappadeaux’s but there was an hour and 45 minutes wait. Food is good but not worth waiting that long so we decided on one of our favorites Ferrari’s. Table was not ready which was fine but it allowed us to have a drink and appetizer at the bar. Bartender was busy but attentive. Poured a respectable drink that was not watered down and had the Fritto Misto which is one of our favorites as it combines calamari, shrimp and peppers. Moved to our table and had two wedge salads and I had the Risotto con Salaicca which was amazing combination but very rich.

Service and food was great but just a little pricey so we will visit but not as often as we would like.
