Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar introduces an array of new seasonal dishes for fall along with an elegantly updated interior design. Conceived by award-winning Executive Chef Francesco DiCaudo, the fall menu selections incorporate a tempting number of new appetizers, pastas and main courses.
Meanwhile, guests can still enjoy all Ferraro’s classic homemade pastas, famous osso buco, superior steaks and other beloved traditional dishes.
Highlights of the new menu additions follow:

Meanwhile, Ferraro’s new contemporary décor, featuring clean lines and soft cream walls with dark wood finishes, replaces its previous Old-World-inspired scheme that utilized elements such as overstuffed upholstery and heavy draperies in gold, orange and burgundy. Still visible are the ornate, Venetian-style glass chandeliers and lighting fixtures, which now appear more noticeable and striking among the simplified surroundings. Owners Gino and Rosalba Ferraro’s daughter, Designer Teresa Ferraro Marretti, consulted on the new design program for the restaurant.
“It was time to refresh the restaurant, so we sought inspiration in Italy’s well-established modern design traditions,” explains Gino Ferraro. “I think the lighter and sleeker atmosphere complements our fine-dining experience without competing with it.”
