We have quite a few Italian restaurants on the beachside barrier island of the Space Coast. Ferrara is a new entry into the pizza and pasta mix...and a worthwhile addition as well!
First things first...Ferrara is located on the corner of Eau Gallie Blvd and South Patrick Dr in Indian Harbour Beach...it is in the Publix Plaza. When you walk into the restaurant it will give you the feel of a NY style Italian restaurant. The decor is as you would expect...dark wood, dark tables, pictures of the Italian countryside hanging on the walls. A word of advice to the owners: get rid of the cheap chairs and put on some table cloths.
Now for the food: pretty darn good. The pizza (I ordered the lunch special which included two large slices of pizza and a fountain drink for $4.99 so McDonald's watch out!) was very good. I added eggplant topping to the slices and it was excellent (see photos below). I also tried the Eggplant Parmigiana...it was very good and they did not over-sauce and over-cheese the meal!
Ferrara offers a full menu of southern Italian NY style entrees as well as daily and nightly specials. The prices are very good so my recommendation: this is a restaurant worthy of you adding to your dining out round robin :)
