  • "Farro has been a great addition to our neighborhood and we are extremely fortunate to have a chef of Matt Franklin's caliber here. The service is excellent and attentive and accommodating. Recently we were there with another couple and we did take more time than usual before we ordered our meals and the server was patient and willing to let us take our time that evening. I had a prosciutto-wrapped shrimp appetizer on a bed of greens that was excellent and ordered the Chicken Marsala which was also excellent with a very tasty and well-balanced sauce. I have ordered over half the dishes on the menu and have found them to all be well-prepared and very enjoyable."

  • "This was my first time at Farro's. The food was excellent and the decor was pretty and elegant. I had an Italian Margarita, it was one of the best I have ever had. There was a mix up with my order but it was quickly fixed and the meal was very good. The staff were gracious and attentive. I have already recommended this restaurant to several friends. I will definitely eat here again, it will now be my favorite Italian restaurant. And it is close to home which is also a plus!"

  • "We stopped by Saturday night for another great dinner. My husband had his usual, Seafood Farro, with lots of shellfish and a delicious spicy broth. I had one of the $20.14 deals ... a great Caprese salad, pork loin with their fabulous creamy polenta, and a chocolate mousse (which I shared with my hubby). Everything was delicious as always. Service was great. We are so lucky to have this restaurant in our neighborhood!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The restaurant was doing quite well on the Saturday we were there providing a vibrant atmosphere. Besides our friendly and efficient waiter, we were also served by others who brought the bread/water or checked on the table throughout the meal, providing an excellent level of service. The menu offered a variety of standard Italian fare and some unique twists as well as several daily specials. All the dishes we tried were well prepared and presented and were very tasty."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "This is the type of restaurant you want to go back to again and again. It is a neighborhood restaurant with neighborhood ambience. Ferro's draws a neighborhood crowd! Why?? Because the food is prepared by the owner/chef. The variety is very good. Everyone from any age and of any taste bud will find something to their liking. And the food is flavorful and comes out HOT!!!! The owner/ chef actually makes the rounds to make sure his customers are enjoying the food and the restaurant."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "This is truly a neighborhood gem. From the owner, Mathew, on down to the bus people they are all friendly, courteous and make everyone feel special. Truly a must for those who want to have a good meal, no GREAT meal, relax and want to be treated as if they are special"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Another great meal - all 4 of us stuck to our favorites. Over the months, we've tried most items on the menu and never been disappointed. You simply cannot go wrong here. And, the wait staff is a pleasure to deal with."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "I had the calamari for an appetizer and it was likely one of the best calamari dishes I have ever eaten - it was THAT good. I followed that with the sea bass which was delicious but I would have like just a tad more flavor; it was cooked perfectly. I had it served with the spinach risotto and that was the only part of the dish I though was just okay, not spectacular. I finished with a crème brulee that I thought was also very good. My server was attentive and friendly; I wanted for nothing. Also, although I didn’t taste it my companion claimed the seafood pasta to be outstanding. I’m not from the area but I visit quite often and the next time I do I’ll stop in here again."

  • "This little spot just gets better and better. Great, reasonably priced regular menu, slightly more expensive specials, but both are consistent and yummy. Not a fancy pants Italian, but neighborhood charm (despite the crummy strip mall) Enjoy."

  • "Good food with appetizing specials. good for kids"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Farro is one of my favorite Denver area restaurants. Service is charming and professional and the food is outstanding. We always feel welcome and the chef often comes to the table to make sure we are happy with the food. The calamari is out of this world and the cheese, fig and arugula pizza is my favorite. This is our go-to place for a casual dinner with friends."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "My wife's dinner came out incorrect _ it was quickly fixed with attention from the owner/chef. When it came back out its was Delicious. Mistakes happen, it's how you correct them that matters, and Farro was top notch."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The specials shined--grilled romaine and grouper. Regular menu items we ordered were excellent, too--Sausage and Peppers and the Salmon. we loved everything at this warm and welcoming restaurant."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "We celebrated 2 birthdays over dinner. Superb wait-staff! Very attentative, gracious and friendly. Wonderful food- very creative pairings. Everything was very fresh and well prepared. I love this place!"
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Went there for my birthday and used the percentage off coupon. Great deal. I had the lamb. It was good but if I had not had the birthday coupon, it would have been way too expensive for what you got. it came with green beans and carrots. Several of the green beans were stringy and tough. My husband had the chilean sea bass. He really likes fish but said it was "pretty fishy". It must have been old or frozen. I think we should stick with the traditional italian dishes."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Was visiting from southern California and was recommended by a colleague who knows Chef Matt Franklin. Our server, Dayton, was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. Although the exterior is humble, the interior decor is quite tasteful. We enjoyed the selection of Italian wines. Best thing about this place is its menu. Four of us ordered different plates so that we could test-taste. Very impressed with the eggplant, chicken marsala, and sausage and polenta dishes. So glad that we showed off this restaurant to our hosts who drove us 30 minutes from their home for a dining adventure."

  • "This was my first visit to Farro. I will definitely go back. The Rosemary Chicken was excellent."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "This is just a great place o have dinner. Nestled in a non-descript strip mall, it is a great find. Worth the drive from any neighborhood."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Great italian food with flair from Chef/Owner, Matthew who always makes a point to meet & greet his customers. Always a nice touch. Casual, family friendly setting and reasonable prices too. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The food was quite pricey, but nevertheless it was outstanding, and I have never been disappointed. Combined with the wonderful service and attention to detail by the staff, our dining experience was terrific. Farro is a great restaurant to celebrate a special occasion. The only negative comment I have about this, as well as so many other restaurants, is their choice of music. Although it was kept at a low and pleasant level, the music was not even remotely Italian, and considering the cost of the dinner, the ambiance was therefore lacking in imagination. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The menu here is not huge. But the daily specials, while usually a bit pricier than the menu items, allow the chef to stretch his creative muscles. And oh boy, does he! The risotto special "small plate' was divine and we love his sea bass and sizzling garlic shrimp. Yum!!!"
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Great food very good service Love the neighborhood feel. Being from Chicago I am picky about pizza. Pizza is great and rest of menu unique and tastes great."
