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.

Service very slow especially to get our drinks. Willing to overlook that since it was quite crowded and our server was doing her best. Actually I think it would have been nice to give us complimentary drinks since she had to apologize repeatedly that the bar was backed up. But we always love Ferrari’s!

The food was amazing and the staff were all very friendly. The restaurant was busy but you could never tell because our drinks stayed filled and food came out promptly.

My father-in-law met his granddaughter for the first time this weekend and our final meal together was at Ferrari’s. He loved it and wants to go back next time he’s in cincinnati. Everyone was surprised at this little hidden gem, tucked behind a pharmacy. Always delicious!

We arrived about 5-5:30 and were seated. The Resturaunt was somewhat empty.

We ordered our salad and it came out incorrect. Our server was the hostess and she had to serve and seat the incoming customers.

Needless to say our food took and hour and we asked for it to go.

Not a good foodie evening at Little Italy.

Great food. Great place to eat. All six meals were great. Service was slow and off this visit. Staff seemed a bit awkward/inexperienced.

It had been a long time since we visited Ferrari's even though it is mentioned from time to time by acquaintances in a positive manner. Some friends we were getting together with suggested it and we are pleased they did. Nice evening, no rush and accommodating service!

We felt rushed due to server kept checking with us and offered to take plates or other items and we were not finished. We told the server we were in no rush and we did take our time but still felt rushed.

It was a very busy night at the restaurant. There were a lot of large parties. Our server was polished but relaxed and gave us plenty of time to visit before taking our order.

Our meals were very good, however, it took a VERY long time for the food to come out. We're not sure what happened, but our reservation was at 6:30pm and we weren't served until around 8:15pm. Two other parties sat down after us (a party of 2 and a party of 5) and were served before us and left before us. I gave a rating of 3 because of how long it took the food. It was my dad's 86th birthday celebration, so at least an apology would have been appreciated but we didn't get one. We will give Ferrari's another chance because had our wedding rehearsal dinner there 23 years ago. But, if we have another delayed experience like that, we're out.

Excellent food and nice service. Area we were seated was a bit cramped and cavelike. We were celebrating my parents’ sixtieth wedding anniversary yet the restaurant did not allow us to open our champagne nor did they provide any special service.

Excellent food! Server didn’t know what beers were on tap and had to go look. She then came back and listed only two. Pleasant enough, but lacking in the finer details of good service.

I always look forward to going to Ferrari's and am never disappointed. It has a very familial feel, like you are in someone's home with lots of family around. The noise level is a bit high because of this but it means you just have to lean in a bit more - and what's wrong with that?! Food is tasty.

Ferrari's is always consistent with service and food. Dined there on Saturday night January 11 to celebrate a birthday. Appetizer of calamari was delicious! Dinner portions are large and enough to take home for leftovers. I can't say enough about this cozy family owned restaurant except to say if you have not tried it yet, you don't know what you are missing!

The restaurant was extremely busy and they ran out of parking, which made getting there a bit more difficult. I have food allergies and they were able to work with those and I did not get sick from the food. I was relieved to know that they had multiple gluten free options. It was very delicious and my friends all thought it was as well. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others and plan on going back again in the future.
