UNFORGIVABLE BAD SERVICE! We were virtually IGNORED for nearly half an hour and when we finally demanded to now where our food was (we were then the last people in the restaurant) it took TEN more minutes - when the food arrived the vegetables were COLD the pasta was less than 1/2 cup! and the fish was hot - The waitress explained that she was "busy with closing duties" WHAT?!?!? THE BILL WAS $85.50 !!! For cold food and @#$# Service NEVER AGAIN!
SAVE YOURSELF THE TROUBLE - I remembered a nice little place with good Italian food, the owner Joe - very cordial. We came for a special dinner to celebrate our engagement and were horrified at the treatment we received - JOE IS SELLING SO THAT MY EXPLAIN - but never again.

We've lived near this restaurant for some time but had not checked it out until recently. The atmosphere is very pleasant, the food is delicious, authentic Italian fare, and the service is friendly and attentive. I had the Salmon a la Cecca, which was very good. The portions are quite generous, and there is only a small charge to share. We plan to go back again very soon!

This is a great place to bring family or for a romantic dinner, the layout makes you feel cozy but not constricted, and the food, all dishes are very good, the pizza has a crunchy crust not oily.

I've never been disappointed by anything at Ferraros except the wait to get in on the weekends. I've been pleased with most entrees, especially those with a cream sauce. Their chicken Marsala is one of my favorites. Their antipasto place is pretty basic but very very fresh. The dinner salad and the minestrone are both boring but don't let that stop you from eating there. You'll find a decent wine on the list to help. Their house Chianti is fine with lunch. It's also a good takeout place for dinner since it's location intersects 3 main streets.

The restaurant is quite busy for dinnertime. The place has limited space and deters us from eating here, but the times that we have, the food has been tasty and excellent.

This is a very small restaurant that sits in a strip mall. The service is great and the food is wonderful. I generally have the Ravioli with meat sauce. It is out of this world good. They make a great homemade pizza too! Casual but quite nice inside.

I really want to love this place since it's the only real restaurant in my 'hood...but I just have had too many negative or mediocre experiences to give it unqualified props. Most of the food is good or very good...my husband likes the lemon chicken, we often get pizza or calzones, and the house salad is nice. The minestrone soup is sub-par. But my biggest complaint is that whenever you order to go, you never know what you're going to get...honestly, there is always something wrong with our order, even though we usually get the same thing. They'll give me meat sauce instead of marinara (I'm a vegetarian) for my calzone, or they'll forget to add mushrooms, etc., etc. ALso, the staff (mostly high school kids that don't seem to care much about their jobs) are indifferent and not very helpful or friendly. This place is good, but it could be so much better!

Pros: Good pizza, nice neighborhood atmosphere

Cons: Often very crowded, inconsistent service & food quality

I am an ex-New Yorker ( 10 yrs). The food here is ok & will give them B. But, the service is sloppy.
Let me clarify.., the buss staff ( older, more experienced persons who assists the high school aged wait staff)
they actually save it from going really bad. the waiters and waitresses ( lack of experience?) can definitely goof on the service/ or some( not all) have snooty immature attitude. If you have someone to impress for dinner or out of town guests- I would not recommend this place. Also, unless you are a regular or a local.., might not be made to feel all that welcomed. For the price they have on the menu.., patrons need better service but, what u get is big quantity of food, sloppy-or snooty( or both) service with less than audible welcome in your ear.

Pros: large portion

Cons: Sloppy service, not that welcoming and less than good ambience.

Their pizza is delectable ; Their Pastas mouth watering, Main Courses are sinful... and the deserts keep me coming back for more! Service is excellent and well worth the wait!

This is exactly how Italian food should taste! I lived in New York for 9 months and found out there what Italian food was really supposed to taste like. I was convinced I'd return home to southern california and never love Italian food again... Until I found Ferraro's. You won't lose, EVERY dish there is delicious. Their house Chianti is superb and Their Marinara sauce is addicting!

The food had no taste what so ever. My dog could cook better, if you want to put it that way. I ordered to go and they messed everything up, adittion to that, the owner that day had made a couple of the workers cry. There were two ladys at the front crying because the boss had teased them for doing the wrong thing in public. I would not recomment this place at all.

Full menu, but lets start with the pizza. Good enough for ex-New Yorkers. Appetizers: Stuffed Artichoke, forgive me Mom, but just as good as yours: Calamari, always tender crisp: Tomato Salad - you will eat half a loaf of bread with this one. The bread, made on the premises daily, crusty and hot! (Take some home from Ferraro's bakery across the street). Main Course: Pasta dish with Joe's Bolognese Sauce, Veal or Chicken Marsala, Shrimp scampi, the daily specials board which sometimes includes my favorite: Bracciola (rolled flank steak stuffed with cured ham, cheese, hard boiled egg, etc.) Try the Steak Sinatra or the Salmon Fillet as well. All dinners come with soup or salad. Beer & wine served - the wine list is impressive for a neighborhood restaurant. Portions are very large, so if you still have room, the Tiramasu and the Baba Rum (Sponge Cake soaked in rum).
