Ferrari's Little Italy & Bakery is located in the heart of Madeira, across from Madeira Kroger. Ferrari's is an authentic Italian Restaurant featuring Northern & Southern fare with excellent value & generous portions. Ferrari's has been operating for over twenty years and is family owned and operated by the Bassano family. The restaurant has two private dining rooms available for private parties, rehearsal dinners, corporate meetings, or family gatherings. We also have an outside patio dining area that is beautifully landscaped with an Italian mural and a stone lighted waterfall. Ferrari's offers full service dining, carry-out, and catering, with an on-premise Italian bakery and Italian grocery.

At Ferrari's we feature family style dining. Our portions are large enough to share, they often border on the surreal. We invite you to enjoy the vera cucina piccola italia, the true cooking of Little Italy.

How many times do you dine somewhere when ANYONE (including your server) actually comes by to see if EVERYTHING IS OK AND DO YOU NEED ANYTHING? Having dined with my family last Friday night, our table was approached no less than 2 times from "staff" (mgmt??) OTHER than our server, to determine IF EVERYTHING WAS OK AND DID WE NEED ANYTHING! And our server checked on us too! How wonderful! The food was delicious. The service was Outstanding. The VALUE was Tremendous. I usually enjoy Lunch at Ferrarie's so I was not familiar with how attentive they were at Dinner also! Do discover this Madeira TREASURE! PS: A "small" salad can be split between 2 - 3 folks if you wish to ENJOY a salad but don't wish to be FULL before your Entree arrives.....

Great meal! We had the veal Parmesan, chop salad and lasagna. Always wonderful with large portions. For dessert we had the chocolate bread pudding which was to die for! The main server was new and was learning his craft that was backed up by an excellent crew who made up for any deficiencies. Overall a great experience and we will be returning soon!

Outstanding service, food, and wine on a very busy Saturday night. Ferrari's never disappoints; consistently delicious meals and fantastic service regardless of crowd size or time of day. We dined later and the bakery was out of cannolis in the case but our server made sure someone put together our dessert to go. When the kitchen ran out of the nightly special, they quickly improvised and added another special for the night...just a first class operation, fantastic food and a good value. Highly recommend for any occasion or none at all!

Great restaurant. The food was terrific and the service was spot on. Everyone on the service team was friendly and wanting to do a fantastic job for their customers. The diners were in a great mood and I heard several comments on how much they loved the food and service. The bakery was stocked with very tasty baked goods and deserts. What a wonderful place!

Always well prepared food, served hot (important to me). Service & ambiance top notch. Servers & chefs very accommodating to tweaking our orders. We brought friends in for the 1st time and they loved everything about Ferrari's. Our favorite, go-to Italian restaurant. I recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone.

I was afraid that the night wasn't going to go well when we walked in and stood at the hostess station (with 2 other groups) for 10-15 minutes with no one acknowledging any of us (servers were going back and forth and there were people at the bakery counter, but not one of them asked if any of us needed help. Finally after almost 15 minutes, we were asked by someone if we'd been helped yet. We were seated and from there things were great. Stephy was a very quick and attentive server and our food was excellent (best lasagna ever). The only place I think Ferrari's falls down is with their desserts. We both got slices of different types of cheesecakes and neither one of us thought they were all that great. If they could offer a good NY style cheesecake, it would put them over the top.

We had a special dinner with friends. Service was spectacular. We were slow to order. The waitress was attentive but not pushy. We found a unique cove (many available) where our 4 year old could move about freely and not bother others! The food was fantastic as usual!

This was not what we were used to. Previously it was great. This time the Alfredo sauce was watery and the Caesar salad came out late and no dressing.

I am a frequent diner and was very disappointed in the food. The Ferrari’s salad just wasn’t the same. And the lasagna was less than good. No real taste. Very bland.

Service was outstanding, as was the food..The owner stopped by our table to greet us. I need to stop by their bakery when we visit again. Everything looked delicious..loved their bread they serve with their meals, which are generous portions. You will see our family again, very soon.

Our seating preference (patio under the vines) was honored and we were 'early birds' so it wasn't crowded. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. My wife ordered the special and I ordered veal parmesan. We also ordered a bottle of the wine she recommended. Once again, it was an enjoyable experience.

Nice atmosphere. Great service. Kids meals were devoured. Adult dishes were lukewarm and slow to table. Not a good value for prices charged.
