We've been going here for ages. It's our local go-to Italian deli. Great sandwiches and soups, good specialty counter, good wine selection, and many frozen food items you can take home for later. We find it on the expensive side, around ten bucks for a sandwich, but consistently good and convenient if you're shopping on College Avenue.

While in the Elmwood shopping district the other day I stopped at Ferrari's for lunch. The polpette (meatloaf) panini was generous, hot and crispy. I would order it again. We've also taken out Ferrara's sandwiches and salads before Cal football games. The sandwiches are always good. My wife has consistently enjoyed the Italian style salads. We can certainly recommend Ferrari's.

It's in the neighborhood and if we're out for a walk or running errands, it's very convenient for lunch. Plenty of Italian meats, salads and bread choices; good size servings, decent prices. Right at lunch hour it can get pretty busy so there might be a wait. If you're not a big eater, you can always save half the sandwich... More

They will provide you with a sample of the meats or cheese to try before making your final selection... A very friendly, yet traditional style deli.. Great to have this in the neighborhood.

I love to get their sandwiches, especially the #1 Grilled Chicken. The salads are very nice as well, and they have a nice variety options.
