Francesco and Jane opened the first Ferrari's Italian Villa, on October 26, 1983 and introduced the Dallas/Fort Worth area to authentic Italian cuisine comprised of recipes that have been in Secchi family for 100 years. Much has changed from the inaugural date, three sons were born: Stefano, Gavin and Gianna, all of whom have great involvement within the business; indeed, the eldest, Stefano, a 2001 graduate of New York's Culinary Institute of America, is Ferrari's featured chef. One prevailing theme has transcended the march of time and that is, the attitude that greeted the first customer, two decades earlier, remains unchanged from greeting that took place yesterday.
The food prepared is representative of everything the Secchi's hold sacred: family, tradition and pride. And the attendant service is brought forth from a collective utensil, which continues to underscore quality and excellence.
