    Fantastic from start to finish. Greeted with a smile and seated immediately. Our waiter Michael was knowledgeable, professional and friendly. The food was delicious, hummus (delicious) and fresh bread, smoked salmon, pork belly confit for starters. Pasta was piping hot with a beautiful sauce and cooked perfectly. Pizza was crispy and delicious. Very happy that we found Farro; a wonderful restaurant so close to home.

    I found this place online while looking for top vegetarian restaurants in York Region the morning of my wife's Birthday as she's a vegetarian. Not only did it live up to its excellent menu and variety for vegetarian dishes but it also had excellent service and the food was spectacular. The pizza and pasta were outstanding and they provide you with a very filling portion size. In addition, they made my wife feel special for her birthday which made for a great night. They also had the best tiramisu I've ever tried, a special recipe from the chefs grandma. Will definitely go back there and I highly recommend this place to everyone that loves great food.

    The food is good as usual but I wont ever be back! After being served by the rude and offending waiter named Michael, that was enough. Nothing worse than that, really leaves a bad taste in your mouth. I think he tries to be funny but yet he offended all the women at my table not to mention the poor service. He leaves a desert menu when your done dinner and a half hour or more later you cant find him. I had to find someone else to get me the bill then after some time passes I had to ask if I could finally pay. So forget desert. As I walked out, my waiter was polishing glasses...I'm sure that was more important.

    Dinner at Farro this week was fantastic! The wait staff are amazing and go above and beyond! They truly made this special occasion "special"! All 8 of us enjoyed our meals from the assorted salads and pizza's to the mains of Halibut (the special of the day - superb!), Veal Chop, Chicken Parm., and Gnocci! Everything was yummy! We try to get there at least once every few months!

    This was our second visit to Farro and we were just as happy as the first time. The service is outstanding, everyone is very friendly and they make you feel at home like a family restaurant. We had the spaghetti putanesca, the halibut, the boar and the penne sausage, as well as the shrimps in love. All were perfectly cooked, tons of flavor and the portions were generous. The place was full so it must be popular with the locals. Large tables with families, all ages, great restaurant. We will be back.

    The menu is what made me pick this restaurant...but it was the quality of food that will bring me back. We ordered 4 very different dishes and everyone on the table was raving about the quality. The pizza however is what 'won' dish of the night...it was perfectly baked in the on-site stone oven and was fresh and vibrant tasting all the way through. If you want to be surprised by a little gem, you definitely need to check this place out.

    We ate at Farro, and the food and service was great. What made it so special was that they were able to accommodate my wife's Gluten allergy. For those who know how difficult it is to find a quality restaurant that has good Gluten free selections, Farro should be on your list! They have everything thing from dessert, to pastas and pizzas. Two thumbs up.

    We've been to this Restaurant a few times before, but of course on New Year's Eve, there was a set-menu. Everything was delicious. The salmon was perfect; the seafood pasta was plentiful and flavourful; and the service was extraordinary! The staff was pleasant and professional. They made sure that everyone's evening was perfect from beginning to end.

    I was beyond impressed with the high level of professional service and discretion at Farro. Our group gets together to chat and kibitz and we are often inappropriately interrupted at restaurants by servers who apply no discretion. Not at Farro, they were very observant and never intrusive. The calamari was grilled to a moist and tender perfection, my veal was so tender and the tomatoe sauce delicate and flavourful. As well as my friend's steak which was perfectly prepared and juicy. We shared the potatoes from the steak plate which were so tasty and almost melted in your mouth yet al dente.

    Overall the quality of the food was acceptable. The gnocchi was a touch too soft. The linguine was great. The amound of seafood was generous with the pasta. We had creme brulee for dessert and found it a little bit too creamy/rich but beautiful presentation with the strawberry/raspberries etc. It was disappointing they ran out of steamed clams or we would have tried them. The coffee was excellent. The waiters/waitress were friendly

    Went to Farro for a birthday dinner. Wasn't thrilled with the first seating location but they quickly moved us to a nicer spot. Food was very very good, service was impeccable ! Shortly after we arrived the restaurant was full to near capacity, our appetizer and main course were very timely delivered. We were not rushed to pay so they could turn the table. Definatly will go again.

    We had a wonderful birthday dinner on a Saturday night. 2 of us had the tilapia which was very tasty, loads of veggies, creamy mashed potatoes, a nice portion of fish cooked perfectly. One of us had the penne salcicce, which was a wonderful ragout not overly spicy but just perfect again a good large portion. And the other had the veal parmagiana which was also very good, but they wished they had served it with pasta instead of mashed potatoes. The service was excellent, when I mixed up my drink they had no issues changing to what I wanted. We will definitely go back.

    I live downtown Toronto, where obviously there are many restaurants to choose from. We had to choose a restaurant to meet with friends who come from north of the city and we wanted something more or less halfway for both parties. We found Farro on the internet and, based on what we read, decided to go for it. We did not regret our decision -- Farro is a nice and cozy place, with amazing service and very good food. My gnocci with gorgonzola sauce was excellent! Our friends seemed to have enjoyed themselves too. Oh, and our main waiter -- was he great or what? Extremely friendly and very helpful, without being intrusive. He's a keeper! If we ever go back to a place to eat in that part of GTA, we will be back there.
