About Ferrari's Little Italy

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.

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

Excellent food, wonderful service. Large portions are enormous, small portions are a big meal. This is an older, established, restaurant with a homey feel. What amazes me is that It keeps getting better.

My group had to wait 40 minutes for a table which we had a reservation. This is why I gave 3 stars for service. Our server was very kind.

First timer on Saturday and the food was absolutely delicious! My husband had Chicken Fettuccine and I had the Spinach Tortellini (I also got a side of meatballs and they did not disappoint). My only concern with the experience was that the restaurant was very busy and the staff seemed overworked and very 'short staffed'. Our reservation at 6:45 and we were not seated until 7:05 pm. You could tell that the host/hostesses were stressed. I think the restaurant may be overbooking the reservations. Our server was great but she seemed stressed as well...the crew is a younger bunch and you can tell that they work very hard. I hope the restaurant reevaluates their server to table ratio or perhaps their reservation maximum per time slot. We will definitely return.

Service was slow and not as attentive as I would expect. Food was good and atmosphere was good. I would have preferred being seated further away from the entrance but I didn’t comment about it so I accept that. I have had better experiences there, so maybe this was an off night and it was still okay.

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

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.

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!
