This is a great restaurant! Thanks to the servers that made my birthday so special. I came with no reservation and it was packed and I got a great table and excellent service! Love the spaghetti tutto mare and the tiramisu! Can't beat the rack of lamb! Always polite service. Recently made some menu changes and the prices are very reasonable for delicious food!

Not a fan of the food. Went before a race to carbo load and my meal was served cold and my father did not enjoy his at all either.

My husband and I recently visited this restaurant for dinner on a whim. We were both so impressed that I advised our waiter that the next time I was on the internet I would take the time to write about our dining experience.

Our food was delicious; the service was fantastic, and the ambiance was very nice. All this combined with reasonably priced menu selections, make it the best kept secret in Dana Point. We will definitely be going back.

Pros: Great Value for Your Money

Cons: No Sunday Brunch is a waste of their patio location

This restaurant has delicious food, including seafood. The patio has heaters and the decor is elegant. We take family here on special occasions. The service is just right, not overbearing and not neglectful. There is a small private room for seating of about 10 people. There are tapestry curtains & chairs. It looks like a lovely place for a small private dinner. The only thing I don't like is the lack of any view as it sits right on a busy street.

In a very nice place called Dana point there is a very good Italian Restaurant called Ristorante Ferrantelli. You can eat the best italian food of California. We are two italian guys and we can ensure the quality of food and service. When you get in the Restaurant you must recognize the typical italian style of the enviroment. The price is right about the quality. Enjoy!

My first time to this restaurant was this past weekend. My wife and I were staying at a nearby hotel who reccommended this restaurant to us. We have eaten Italian food all over the country through our travels and none have been this good. I ordered the seafood risotto and my wife ordered the Tutto Mare. The seafood in my risotto was juicy and succulent and flavored perfectly and my wife's Tutto Mare was the best we have ever had. It was full of the freshest seafood and the pasta was cooked perfectly "al dente". The server helped us choose a nice wine to pair with our meal and just as promised it complemented it nicely.
Our service was very attentive without being intrusive! I found the prices to be right in line with what I got - a delicious meal, wonderful service, and a beautiful ambiance! Will go back every time we visit Dana Point.

I recently booked my company's yearly corporate party at Ferrantelli Restaurant for about 100 people. This was the best one we've had in 15 years!! They made the planning so easy for me - I didn't have to do a thing. Our menu was fantastic-everyone just raved about the food! The waiters who took care of us all night were incredibly entertaining and professional. The whole staff made our entire evening very memorable! This restaurant is so beautiful and warm inside that we didn't want the evening to end. The prices on the food and wine are quite reasonable. We will be returning to Ferrantelli's every year for our corporate events!

I was in a business trip by myself and I was being recommended this restaurant. I did not have a good experience at all. It was a friday night, I walked in and I was offered a table in the corner of the restaurant, even though it was not that busy, I didn't have a view. I had one of the specials, I didn't feel like perusing throughout the menu, it look too busy and complicated in appereance. I had a fish that was too fishy, server was no too polite, maybe because I did not spend too much money. I was going to have a glass of wine, but the prices are outrages, and too many choices. I got an ice tea and the fishy fish, that was not enough? Place is quite expensive for quality of the product, service and food. I do business a lot in this area from the est coast, I will never return here.

This is a nice quiet place to enjoy a srumptious Italian meal. Great view of the ocean. Perfect romantic setting. Fine choice of wine as well. Nominal corkage fee.

The first Ristorante Ferrantelli opened in Rome in 1950, and its ambience, hospitality and cuisine were transported intact to Dana Point in the '90s. For nearly three decades, the eatery has respected its roots and serves up fine authentic…
