Afternoon Coffee
Ferro has been established and family-operated since 1993. The Space: Originally a billiard hall of colourful yet dubious character which endured for over 20 years, the Pronesti family took possession over two decades ago and added eclectic yet tasteful elements of industrial, avant-garde design while maintaining the vibrancy and creative energy of the original space. The Food: Serving up traditional southern Italian cuisine with a creative spin where we feel you will enjoy it! Our original culinary ambitions have never changed: By holding true to the family recipes and dedication to fresh ingredients as passed down through the generations that have preceded us, we bring you authentic, honest, home-cooked food the very same way we enjoy it.

We had a wonderful time at Ferro celebrating my birthday! Food was delicious as always, our server was fantastic and they made the occasion extra special for us.

Went here for a birthday, overall solid food in a good location but nothing special. Thought the service could have been better, they totally forgot about the birthday girls meal and did not seem to feel very bad.

Love this place! We wish they had opened up seating in the back for lunch. It was cramped for a group of six in the front area.

maybe an off night, but i have been a huge ferro lover for years and years. Friday evening i found everything about it to be poor. And i brought a table of 8 to the restaurant. So disappointed beginning with the server. Food was tasteless that night. Had to send back stuff. Though magic mushrooms have always been fabulous.
Had an upcoming reservation that I had to cancel because I had such a poor experience friday evening.
Wish the waiters and waitresses would crack a smile...
How disappointing after loving this place for so many years.

The food was amazing -- highly recommend the pasta. Unfortunately, our dessert orders were forgotten and my take-out was mislaid for about an hour, but otherwise it was a great experience. (And they did comp the desserts, which was appreciated!) Have eaten there before with no issues, so maybe it was just an off night. Either way, the delicious dishes made it worth it! Would recommend and return.

Food was decent. Although we felt like we were rushed out at the end. We were still eating/drinking and suddenly servers kept trying to pack up our food that we hadn't finished yet. Music was a bit loud. Servers missed a few people's meals or offering peppers/cheese, etc.

Good food and generous portions. Service was not super attentive, but I have a sense that they may have just been short staffed that day.

Cousin and I went for lunch just before Christmas. The interior was very inviting and warm looking. Our waiter was friendly and very helpful. We had magic mushrooms, gnocci (sp?) and zupa di pesci. All excellent along with complimentary bread and olive oil, parmesan, balsamc dip. I had a glass of Proscecco. We sat near the door with only a thin wall between us and the area next door which is under construction. Power saws made a horrific noise and construction guys walked through noisily yelling out to each other. Definitely very off putting. Final opinion? Food excellent! Ambiance sucked eggs big time.

One of my favourite spots for Italian in the city. High quality ingredients, their pizzas and pastas never disappoint. However, it is always a bit too noisy. When coming with a larger group you will need to shout over the noise if you want to talk to the person across the table. Not ideal place to bring your grandparents :)

Took our friends there it was their first time. Food was good, not great. Same with service. I was there about a month ago and everything was excellent with 4 people. Not sure why it was so difficult with 6

We had 19 people and the waitress was excellent. We were quite noisy and the staff was more than polite. Food was excellent!
We go to Ferro often and have always been more than pleased with everything.

We went for the prix fixe menu, but they were out of dessert (biscotti). We asked for a substitution and were able to have another dessert that we split in 2. That was a satisfactory deal. The food was excellent, but seating in front of the kitchen was extremely noisy, although the restaurant was practically empty.

I've been to Ferro quite a few times and always enjoyed it. That's why I was so surprised by our experience this past Saturday. Our waiter got our orders mixed up, and then left our plates in front of us for about a half hour after we were finished eating. He seemed to completely forget about us, even though the place was pretty much empty at that point. Even worse, when we flagged down another server to try to order some coffee, she gave off a very annoyed vibe, as though we were bothering her. I'd say our lunch took about an hour longer than it would have if we'd had a more attentive server. I like Ferro and I'll definitely come back, but these two servers were really quite bad.

The food was excellent. We were a large group and sat at the front. It was annoying when the door kept opening as it was cold. And people were standing waiting for the table. But in fairness, they did call to warn me before making the reservation. We would go back. But would sit further in the Reataurant.

Their food is to die for. A must go for those not only seeking great Italian cuisine, but just amazing food in general. Their Mushroom Risotto is legit.

The Italian food was terrific mushroom appetizer was excellent. The problem was one of our party is 4 years old and if this is a family restaurant it needs to have a childrens menu which it doesn't. There was also a 45 minute wait between ordering our food and recieving the main course which is unacceptable especially if you have a young one with you. I think that the stafff forgot our order? Too bad for the food was excellent. Won't repeat with kids.
