The food quality is excellent, however, if what you received is different than what you ordered...there is a problem, Called a for a delivery with 4 items on it....one pizza had one t ingredient incorrect on it...plus one salad was not prepared properly....because of the long delivery time, it's useless to call back, as you will starve to death before...

Most of the time we've had very good and timely delivery from Ferrentino's. There are off days however, where food arrives cold, or not totally cooked, which for the price is disappointing. If you spend almost $30 for a large cheese n sausage, you expect a good product all the time. The Chicken Caesar salad is consistently good.

As always, the pizza is very good! We tried half pepperoni/pineapple and half Italian beef/giardiniera peppers and it was awesome! The service was good, and the employees were very nice!

Let me note the name is Ferentino's not Farentino's as listed by this site. I admit that having grown up on the southside of Chicago, I am spoiled. The large number of excellent choices for pizza simply create a high bar for others to meet. That being said, this is not bad. The thin and roma crusts are my favorites.... More

The pizza is really good and there are a lot of options. I like that you can do pick-up or eat in. There are some really good choices for the favorite Italian food standbys, too. I recommend it!

I've had their delicious thin crust pizza. But I can't seem to order anything but the meatball sandwich - it is so good. Broiled cheese melted and slightly crisped over the fresh bread, generous meatballs, and I would lick the last drop of pomodoro sauce if it wasn't rude. I always think I'll just eat half and save the other... More

It's one of the best restaurants for a quick bite, lunch or dinner, in Lake Forest. Delicious Italian subs and pizza at a very reasonable price! The staff is pleasant and service is great. What else you can ask for!
