This restaurant is a hidden gem. The lobster ravioli was delicious. Watching the chefs prepare your meal was an added bonus. This is now one of my favorites.

This restaurant is a favorite
This restaurant is a favorite fr my wife and I when we are in Southwest Florida. The food is excellent and prepared right before your eyes so you know it is fresh. You have the attention of everyone, from the owner-chef Michael t the gentleman that greets you when you arrive. The waitstaff is attentive, but not overbearing. I would recommend Farfalle to all.

Food tasted excellent. "Chef
Food tasted excellent. "Chef Michael" is not flexible with substituting potatoes to pasta if a customer asks. I thought the customer should be accomadated. Fettuccini was supposed to be saffron and squid ink, I'm pretty sure I was served spinich and regular. What we were served tasted great.

Waiter was very knowledgable. Waitstaff very attentive. We are from out of town, but if lived locally we would definatley return.

VEry good food in a quiet restaurant that is never too full. Therefore the wait staff is very present and responsive. A little pricey but worth it.

I had the sole from the regular menu, my husband had Veal Chop from the specials. Meals were outstanding. I feel very comfortable in asking the server for recommendations, he knows the dishes, also very informative on the wine list. You are not rushed, courses are brought out on perfect timing, relax and savor the flavors!

Continental Dining at its Best
The quality of the food is outstanding as is the wide selection of offerings with a distinct European flavor. The dishes are creative and unusual. The wine selection is strong and balanced between both California vintages and those from Italy.
Farfalla's is a dining experience at its highest levels of enjoyment and pleasure. This is a true treasure on the Naples restaurant scene.

ALWAYS A WOW!!!
We've been regulars for 6 years. The food is prepared to order and it's always excellent. Chef Michael is ready to tailor any dish the way you'd like. The menu provides choice after choice of wonderful selections and the signature dishes are unbelievably delicious. There is an excellent wine list from which to choose if you're so inclined. Suggestion: go early and take time between courses and you'll enjoy it even more.

Great Italian food 41 & Corkscrew!!
What a find, thanks to Open Table 1000 point night! We loved everything we ate and drank. The pasta was fresh and the seafood was cooked perfect! I don't usually eat leftover seafood, but this I did and it was almost as good leftover as it was fresh the night before.

Farfalla's never disappoints me. The food is wonderful. The spiedini was light and fresh, the veal dishes are always tender that you can cut them with a fork. The waiters are knowledgeable and attentive.

The Veal dish on the early dining menu is outstanding and great value.

The food was very good with
The food was very good with a lot of choices. Our service was a bit slow at times but not a problem for us. The chef/owner was very friendly and offered us a sambuca which we declined since neither of us like that drink. The waiter was extremely knowledgable about everything on the menu. We will go back.

We've driven by this restaurant a bunch of times and finally decided to stop in. We heard good things, but never had the time to try it ourselves.
This place is great. Fantastic, freshly prepared authentic Italian dishes presented by a knowledgeable, engaging staff.
The chef / owner uses nothing but the best ingredients as he cooks each meal individually. My wife cant stop raving about her gorgonzola Ceasar while my Caprese appetizer and squid ink seafood pasta special were both outstanding.
Finally we enjoyed amazing profitaroles and the best coffee around
The only downside was that we had not visited sooner
We're already planning a return trip next we're down here.
Excellent all around.

Creative menu at reasonable prices
We discovered this neighborhood spot on a recent visit to Bonita Springs and it rivals some of the best restaurants in the area for great food at affordable prices. We usually stay at the Hyatt Coconut Residence Resort when we visit this area, and this spot is very close so it's easy to enjoy an outstanding meal without traffic hassles. We love the fact that we can see the owner/chef from our table and he is so enthusiastic about his food. We have added this one to our favorites list!

Farfalla is our favorite restaurant. Not only is the food outstanding and freshly prepared, but Chef/Owner Michael is always there. He knows his customers by name and most stop by his open kitchen to say thank you, it was great as usual! When he can, he comes to your table to chat. The waitstaff are professional and friendly.

The only restaurant I need
Absolute perfection is almost impossible to come by, however Ristorante Farfalla has achieved just that. The menu is extensive and the wine list exceptional. The tuna carpaccio appetizer was fresh, sweet and melt-in-your mouth delicious. The calamari was served with quite possibly the best pomodoro sauce that we've ever had. Several people in our party had the Veal Chop. It was to die for........simply outstanding! Another stand out dish was the Homemade Tagliatelle. As far as sweet endings, Farfalla has that covered as well. My lemon tart was delectable and several in our group had the creme brûlée, extolling that it was the creamiest, most decadent they ever had. We cannot want to return to see what else Chef Michael is capable of.

When asked about the availability of some items, the waiter was a bit condescending.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Selection of Italian Fare
There were many food items to choose from. All of us thought our entrees were excellent. Our selections ranged form various veal dishes, chicken, pasta, and gnocchi. The waiter was very attentive, however it took quite a while to receive the dinner entrees. The salads, desserts, and wines were on time, and the waiter was very responsive, so despite the lag in food delivery, I rated the experience outstanding. We were a larger group, so maybe the coordination was more difficult.
