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.

We are so happy to have Ferraro's open for lunch---had their "small" antipasto salad and a medium pizza this noon, both wonderful. I hadn't been there in a long time due to a move out of the area, very glad to find it's even better...More
