Fomos conhecer por causa dos elogios no TripAdvisor, todos merecidos. Um pouco difícil a chegada no restaurante, quem vem de Miami Sul precisa fazer um retorno fechado e manter-se na pista da esquerda, mas o restaurante oferece facilidade para estacionar (era uma terça-feira e não havia manobrista). Ambiente muito agradável, menu enxuto e atraente, excelente carta de vinhos, permite levar vinho (um por mesa, rolha de US$ 30), que foi o meu caso. A entrada foi carpaccio de polvo, para compartilhar, excelente. Os pratos principais foram coração de filé mignon e Guancia di vitelo, ambos espetaculares. Eu e minha esposa trocamos os pratos na metade para um experimentar o do outro e o garçom, sem ninguém pedir, veio trazer uma faca para carnes para ela também. O sommelier recomendou um bom espumante italiano e escolheu as melhores taças. Pedimos uma sobremesa para compartilhar, porque estávamos quase satisfeitos, e o garçom trouxe um pedaço do tiramissu deles como cortesia, dizendo que nós precisávamos provar.

We were met because of the accolades on TripAdvisor, all deserved. A bit difficult to arrive at the restaurant, those coming from Miami South needs to make a closed return and keep on the left lane, but the restaurant offers easy parking (it was a Tuesday and there was no valet). Very nice ambiance, lean and attractive menu, excellent wine list, wine tasting (one per table, $ 30 cork), which was my case. The entree was octopus carpaccio, to share, excellent. The main dishes were heart of filet mignon and Guancia di vitelo, both were spectacular. My wife and I exchanged dishes in the midle for one to try out the other and the waiter, without anyone asking, came to bring a steak knife for her too. The sommelier recommended a good Italian sparkling wine to start dinner and chose the best glasses. We ordered a dessert to share because we were almost satisfied, and the waiter brought a piece of their tiramissu complimentary, saying that we needed to taste it.

Another great meal with excellent wine and great service by everyone. Ate at the wine bar where you can watch your food be prepared. Just watching Igor and his staff is a wonderful experience. The are masters of what they do is made to order. The ministroni soup is simple, full of fresh organic vegetables and a delicious broth. Healthy and perfectly made. I then had Risotto with mushrooms and delicious truffles. You cant make this Rissoto at home. I love this place and when I was send a list of other Italian restaurants "I might like" they were wrong because although they are good they are not as authentic as Ferraros.

I am a real foodie and eat out often. This place is extremely well run by Chef Igor and his wife. This is not American Italian food but real Venetian cuisine. The secret to this wonderful place is the use of only quality ingrediants and a Chef who actually cares. There is a great wine selection and great service. The waiters are well versed on the menu. I now eat here regularly because the food is consistent, always delicious and presented perfectly. There are creative daily specials. I think everything in this restaurants comes from Italy including the waiters. I have recommended this restaurant to many people who want authentic Italian cuisine
and they all have gone multiple times. Very nice place for a date or even a party.

I went on reviews and took my husband here for his birthday together with my daughter. What a wonderful surprise! The food was outstanding— I particularly loved the tuna Carpaccio with truffles. We also got the cuttlefish over polenta which was delicious and we all ordered the Chilean sea bass with asparagus risotto. Excellent! The pistachio cannolis were perfect and I liked that we got 3 minis— easier to eat and share and the tiramisu was one of the best we’ve ever had. My daughter has already asked to go back for her birthday!!

Overpriced, manager would not let me sit next to my girlfriend at 2 top table, only across the table where it was hard to talk or be romantic because of noise and distance apart. They could have just moved the table over a couple of inches to make us happy instead of making us sit at the bar to be side by side.

We come here often as the food is excellent. The nite's special was Veal Milanese and it was perfectly prepared. The pan fried sardines (Venetian style) were very tasty. Portions were very large with enough leftovers for a nice lunch the next day. We try to go once a month.

It was great but the only thing we didn’t like too much was the waiter we got who was not too friendly and appeared hurried. The waiter we got the first time we went there was nicer/friendlier. Also our dinner was brought to us by a different waiter and thought that was unusual. The wine steward was very friendly as were the two women always there one of which I think is the owner. The menu is very varied and reasonably priced. The wine list is vast and impressive. The seafood risotto and Mediterranean Sea bass in parchment with vegetables were awesome. It would have been appreciated
if the waiter had been there to remove the parchment paper and taken it away instead of me doing it and folding it under the dish. Overall a very nice dinner experience.

Ferraro’s Kitchen is s treasure. From one course to another, the chef puts out delicious dish after delicious dish, with ingredients sourced with care and prepared with elegance— no fussiness or pretentiousness— expertise and creativity. Bravo! Service was among the best in Miami— helpful, professional and attentive, without hovering.

The food and service were great. I ordered the Lobster Ravioli for dinner and the rice balls for a starter and they were both delicious. The food came in large portions. Nice ambiance. No liquor, just wine.

We were celebrating a 50th birthday and had guests in town from Milan. Three small children. We booked a Saturday afternoon brunch after the lunch rush and pretty much had the place to ourselves. There is an outdoor patio where the children were able to play whenever they became antsy. Our guests from Milan were over the moon with this place. The birthday boy had a great time. Ferraro's is a go-to place for us in our neighborhood, but it's worth a drive from anywhere in South Florida. They have a dress code that is reasonable in my opinion. They basically want to maintain an atmosphere of casual sophistication to complement their food. The owner/chef went out of his way to prepare the best Branzino I've ever had and veal Milanese to die for. He made a selection of appetizers for the table (party of 10) and made wine pairing suggestions within my budget. I can't recommend Ferraro's highly enough. Nice wine selections at very reasonable prices.

Our experience was amazing!! The food and service were outstanding. We are foodies who have traveled the world and Ferraro's Kitchen ranks up there with the best! We had a lovely visit with the owner/chef, Igor Ferraro, who explained the unique passion that he has for great food and wine. His wine selection has many gems that you won't find elsewhere. The is truly a "must go to" restaurant. We can't wait to return.

Although it turned out to be a bit pricier than I had anticipated for a Father's Day celebration, it was worth the money and experience. We did not go with the traditional red sauce spaghetti and meatballs but tried the tasting menu for the special truffles month. We were not disappointed. We will be back. The food, atmosphere, service and ambiance were topnotch.

We had a fantastic dinner at Igor’s place, and even had a chance to talk to him, the owner and chef, for quite a while. Great food, made with personal touch, and very good service.

Try the pear-based pasta with Gorgonzola sauce and experience an impressive wine list, with lots of Italians, as you would expect.

One of the most special authentic Italian restaurants in all of Miami! Many special appetizers and dishes with many choices. We nejoy eating there at least once per month and always can't wait to go back. Excellent appetizers for example, Me Polpete of Beef and Meatballs, Red Tuna Carpaccio with Black Truffles.. Pasta dinners for example, Papardelle with Wild Boar Sauce, Ravioli with Lobster. Also, excellent different types of fish, for example Branzino and also Seabass dishes. Their steak and Lamb Chop specials are also delicious..
Excellent wines at reasonable prices too.

You definitely leave the restaurant feeling totally satified and definitely full of very good Italian eats.

Your hosts Christiana and Igor Ferraro always make you feel welcome.

Great restaurant for special occasions too.

If you want a special Italian restaurant instead of just going for basic Miami Italian food, Ferraros is the place for you! You will go back again and again,
