This was always one of favorite restaurants when we lived here for 20 years. And a special treat to return for my daughter's 40th birthday. Some might think that particular birthday requires celebration with black crepe paper and bawdy jokes. Not our style. Two grown ups who treasure each other sharing excellent food and excellent company in a great setting.

Our server was young and it was new years eve. She struggled bringing a glass of wine as it took over 30 min. However the manager made up for it with a couple free glasses. Never had that issue there before. I will chalk it up to being nye

The place is warm and cozy and old school. But the food did not live up to the charming old world atmosphere. We all (6) agreed it was bland and pretty mediocre. Service was good and prices are reasonable. A highlight: The breads and desserts were great.

We enjoyed the food ver much. Reservation was for 12, set up for very tight 11. Had to request another table as waitress was going to over crowd the initial setup space with 12! We regretted another table was set up too close to us and had to endure our family birthday celebration! Overall, enjoyed our time! Thank you!

We had Christmas Eve dinner At Ferrari's. Evidently a lot of others had the same idea. It has that family cozy atmosphere, fireplace and soft lighting. The dining room was busy, but as usual the service was good and the food delicious.

Food was only ok and took 50 minutes to be made. They claim the serving size is 3-4 people per dish but we found that to be a bit of an overestimate. The waitress mentioned that the head chef no longer was there so that may have been part of the problem. We won’t be going back only because there are so many better options in the area.

Ferrari’s always delivers a great dining experience. We happened to arrive on a rainy night where there was an overflow crowd due to power outages. Our server never missed a beat despite the crowds. We all enjoyed appetizers, the incredible Ferrari salad and a great entree. And we will only order Tiramsu at Ferrari’s as every other place doesn’t hold a candle to their phenomenal dessert.

Food was at best ok nothing special, service was ok. For the money, they could at least give us a small house salad. Ordered cappuccino it was cold. Hate to say but you get more for your money at Bravos or Carrabas and I would rather go to an independent. I tried.

It was a particularly busy evening because I believe a large party of about 20 was there along with the normal patrons. This made the staff disorganized and frantic. We ended up being seated 30 mins after our scheduled reservation - not exaggerating. However, the food was still consistently good and our waitress was great - if not over-apologetic. This visit was disappointing but that's not our normal experience at Ferrari's. I'm confident we'll return in the future and be pleased with the experience.

I think the food is o.k., but the menu for lunch is very brief. They could offer more choices and have more pasta dishes. The place is cozy and comfortable, but be sure to call for directions because it's not seen from the street. If it's evening, you'll also miss the turn-in sign off Miami Rd. I would recommend this restaurant, but for supper and not for lunch.
