Really should be higher on the recommendations in Ventura. We came here with a local business associate. It is a smaller family run restaurant and it seemed most of the patrons were local folks. The garlic bread was good and my work associate and I had the Lasagna. It was individually prepared and cooked in it's own dish. Not cut... More

I went here and expected to enjoy everything as in years past. Sadly Mrs.Ferraro had passed away and greed took over every aspect of the business. The paper placemat menus are gone, the wooden salad bowls are gone, the lunch counter that Mrs. Ferraro sat at (and even smoked at back in the day!) is gone (replaced by ugly wooden... More

Ferraro's has always been a good restaurant, but there have been some additions to the menu and improvements in old favorites. The restaurant has also upgraded the restaurant itself. Salads are tastier. Get there early! Lines can be daunting. Great place for families. Takeout is great too!

This is a hometown, local favorite. Pure comfort food. This is a casual, family owned restaurant, with family recipes. My family has been eating here for 25 years, and it's my favorite weekend take-out treat. My favorite menu items are baked rigoletti and brocolli, baked rigatoni with tomato sauce, baked mostacciolli with meat sauce, baked spaghetti with meat sauce and... More

The veal is as good now as it was all those years ago. Big servings of piccata and Marsala and a well priced bottle of red made us all very happy campers. Too bad it's three thousand miles away or we'd be back in a couple of weeks. Buon appetito.

It's been 25 years since I've been to Ferraro's. Usually there is a long wait to get in because it's so popular but I got a gift certificate so we went for dinner. We started with the antipasto salad - it was very fresh and filling and the medium was more than enough for 4 of us. Next came minestrone... More

I'm pretty picky when it comes to Italian food, but I really like their lasagne. My husband does too. My son usually gets their pizza, it is really good too.

Before trying Ferraro's we went to Olive Garden and Macarroni Grill for Italian. Since we've been going to Ferraro's, we're disappointed with lasagna anywhere else! Don't expect a high-end restaurant. This is a small, family business with good food and prices. The lasagna actually tastes like garlic and basil not just tomato sauce and noodles, and the portions are generous.... More
