Rigoletti w/ broccoli was perfect. I don't eat pasta often, (almost never) but this was fantastic. Dining area is extremely small, but we arrived early and were seated right away. Staff was attentive and helpful.

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...More
