Excellent gem of a location. Doesn’t look like much outside but you REALLY should come inside of this absolutely LOVELY eatery. Inside and especially outside, again lovely!!! Great menu choices and everything was tasty, excellent service. I went for a business lunch but look forward to going back with my hubby on a date night.

This place was just fine, expensive for the quality. With the variety of Italian restaurants in Miami, I probably won’t feel the need to go back.

Can’t understand how there are there so many 5 star reviews.

Responded on April 24, 2021

Good morning, thank you for your review. However the review sounds pretty severe considering you ordered 3 glasses of wine, 2 appetizers, 2 main courses, a bottle of water and spent $ 57 + tax and tip per person. We get a lot of 5 star reviews because customers love our food, service, and ambience. Like everybody, we make mistakes and maybe we made one at your table. Please let us know what we got wrong with the food and service. Hope to see you back at Ferraro's for a better experience.

This is the Restaurant you can take your Italian Restaurant friends to because this is not the Olive Garden. The wine selection is large and impressive. The menu is large but not to large and the real secret to this place is the owner is the Chef who really cares. The best ingredients, Italian portions and perfect preparation. Most of the service staff have been there a long time and if you have a reservation you won't wait. Good restaurants you want to go back to and you will want to go back to this place. This place is meticulously clean and the kitchen is open!

The First Time I went to Ferraro's was few days after the opening and I was impressed.
Fast forward, 6 years later, and I personally believe (as born and raised Italian who has lived in Miami 24 years) this is the best Italian restaurant by a mile.
The consistency and the quality of the food are impressive.
Igor and Cristiana are great hosts and they make your evening special.
I will keep going.

It was a lovely night and sitting in Ferrarro's garden was so nice! The food was very good. Our only complaint was service that was too slow. It seemed as though there was not enough wait-staff.

Host rude upon arrival when asked about possible table availability outside. Never looked up from stand and just said “no” not I’m sorry we’re fully committed this evening etc. our server Sebastian was great. Attentive and explained menu well. When manger stopped by and asked one of guests why they didn’t eat lasagna my guest commented “it was burnt” to which we were told it would be taken off bill. It never was. I simply paid the bill and to care of Sebastian. Sorry but this Italian food was very overrated.

Our only regret is that we didn't discover this gem a few years ago. The daily menu touches all food categories and, while not extensive, everything offered on any given day is first class. Whenever we go we absolutely feel as if we were dining in the heart of Italy - and with the pandemic - transportation overseas, even mentally, is a bonus.

An uneven dining experience. The outside patio is pleasant enough. I asked for a glass of Rose, and was told they didn't have any rose. I ordered spaghetti with yellow tomato sauce and was told the sauce was red.
The pasta dish was very tasty, however. My wife ordered langostino, which were "good but not great". Fritto misto was "good but not great".
I certainly would not rush back.

Quality of food was very average, not matching the price. Service was not great, as they continued to start serving with me, and leaving my wife to the end, and forgot to bring second bottle of water while charging for it on the bill. Nice place in terms of ambience. Won’t come back, there are many other options in Miami.

We arrive at 6;15 which according to open table was thevonly time available until 7:45 .the back yard was empty but we were still relegated to a very small table for 2 Jared against a window looking into the restaurant. They do not serve liquor only wine. The food menu was very expensive even though the decor was ordinary . Nothing about this restaurant was particularly appealing.

I am a regular customer at Ferraros Kitchen because the food never disappoints. This place has some of the best authentic Italian food in Miami. If you haven’t been there before and like Italian food you must go. The atmosphere is very comfortable, service is friendly, and the food is amazing. You will not be sorry you went.

The food and service was generally excellent, having said that the veal Melanae‘s was a bit dry and the arugula and tomato had no dressing oil or any lubricant of any sort. I found that quite surprising because it was a very hefty price for Veal Milanese
And it’s a dish I’m very familiar with so I was surprised that the greens were dry.

I said nothing because I had guests who were there with me for a birthday and they raved about their food.
