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.

We go there periodically and usually enjoy it. My dinner was good but my wife 's salmon wasn't quite done. I suggested she tell the waitress but she didn't want to wait ten minutes etc while they finished it. Our waitress was excellent. Have been fortunate to have her wait on us in the past. She is always excellent. (Thus is terrible but cannot remember her name. I do know however she has a nursing education.).

Dinner for 2, we split the small Fried Mozzerella, Italian salad, and Chicken Parmesan and it was plenty of food! We liked that the marinara was very basic without chunky tomatoes as this is exactly how we like it. There was a nice assorted bread basket as well. The staff was very friendly and kept our glasses full.

I love to eat local, not at chain restaurants. Ferrari's is one of my favorites. The service is good and the food is great. I also think it is reasonably priced.

We were there for Easter brunch. It was busy, but still quiet for conversation. Great buffet, including home-made raviolis and a fabulous shrimp cocktail. And a server who could be our BFF! Well done!

We came on the 23rd of March, at 8 pm, I can't remember our server's name (very short hair ashy blonde/brown, middle-aged) but she was so thoughtful, friendly and very accommodating, she definitely made an impression and helped with our dietary requirements.

As usual our dinner at Ferrari's was excellent. From the pizzas to the pasta entrees we have never had a bad meal. You must try the Ferrari salad. Best salad I have ever eaten. We go as often as possible.

Many, many years ago, I visited Ferrari’s to sell wine. I was always haunted by the intoxicating smells coming from the bakery in the front of the building. I decided on a whim to take my family to dinner in the hopes that the food would live up to the heavenly scents I remembered.

We were seated quickly and the staff was courteous. Our table was already set with a bread basket (which was filled with everything that’s right in the world: French bread with cheese on top, focaccia, and maybe another; all were delightful), but the ambiance in the back room where we were seated was a lackluster. The ceiling was dripping—it was quite a rainy night—and the overall feel of the space was run down. The servers who had to get to the table behind ours constantly bumped into my chair as they walked by because it was pretty cramped. I could have easily overlooked that if our food had wowed us. We started with a Caesar salad. The croutons had very little flavor and I’d venture to say it was cubed stale bread with zero seasoning. The salad dressing had some kick but was lacking in something...maybe salt and lemon? My husband and I both ordered pizzas. They were just alright; nothing to right home about. My son ordered spaghetti and meatballs. The meatball, which was indeed huge, was hard as a rock. He said it had nice flavor, but he darn near needed a saw to get through it.

Dessert was unimpressive served on bread plates. Who serves ice cream, a sundae even!, on a bread plate? The pistachio ice cream had an odd flavor. My son ordered it and did not like it so we switched and I gave him my chocolate cake, which was good. I couldn’t eat the ice cream either. It was inedible, and that’s saying something from a family of ice cream lovers.

I’m certain this is a neighborhood spot that the locals love, but the food and price tag were not worthy of another visit for us.

We brought business associates to dine with us. The noise level was such that we could hear each other just fine. We were able to stay as long as we wanted and we were not constantly interrupted (which we appreciated). However, when we did want to order more wine we did have a hard time getting anyone to help us. Overall great food and a very nice time.

Food is good, Service is good. Table seating was horrible. They seated us at the smallest table in the place - next to the fire door. They should not have that table there at all. They seated others at larger tables after us - they were also parties of two. We probably did not have to make the reservation as there were many tables empty during our stay. Who knows, maybe they would have seated us at the same table. It was Valentines Day - maybe we should have gone elsewhere and enjoyed their atmosphere
