Our "go to" spot!
Love Farro. We've been coming here ever since we moved to thornhill 5 years ago. Consistently delivering good food and good service. Great for date nights, special occasions, and even dinner with the kids, the restaurant really can work for anything. Say hi to Carmen, he's sure to come by at some point in your meal to ask how everything is.

We started to go to Farro's
We started to go to Farro's once in a while but it is now one of our favourites. The staff is wonderful and will make items to suit. On my last visit I couldn't choose between two starters and ordered one and they brought a sample of the other starter to try for the next time. Very smart. Little things like that and always good food keeps us coming back.

A Great Dinner
This was my first time at Farro Ristorante and I can honestly say it was great. The food, service and wine were excellent which was wonderful as this was my wife's birthday dinner. The staff and owner were very attentive and I will definitely be returning.

Good service, great food
I brought a date to Farro. She came all the way from Markham. I came all the way from Mississauga. I had to make a good first impression, and this place helped a lot! The service was good, the food was great. My date and I finished the meal, had lattes and paid the bill. We continued our conversation at our table for well over a half hour, and were never pressured to leave. Will definitely come again!
P.s the red snapper with mango salsa was delicious!

Can hardly wait to return
Farro was an incredible find. It was a very enjoyable dining experience. The service (ask for Michael, he is great), the ambiance and the food are all superb? I was dining with two colleagues, who, like me. are "on the road" over 100 days a year so when we say "wow" about a restaurant it really means something--and Farro was undoubtedly a "Wow!" Every item that we ordered was wonderful--great presentation and perfectly cooked from fresh ingredients. Every wine we tried was terrific. The prices were very reasonable--given the quality of the food and service this has to be the best value in the entire Toronto area.

Saturday Night Dining
Farro is a relaxed atmosphere with delicious food. Two of us ate the best veal parmigiano served with fresh veggies & mashed potatoes. The salads & soup were excellent. They offered a variety of teas & coffees. Have eaten here before & it is by far our favourite Italian restaurant!!!

waiter very accommodating,
waiter very accommodating, we had one of our party of six in a wheelchair. the ramp for the rear entry was not safe for her scooter-style wheelchair, so she had to come around from the back parking lot to the front entrance. food was excellent, service equally so.

Though we have been many times
Though we have been many times it was first for couple we were with. One of them is on a special diet and had the pizza made with spelt. Said it was excellent. They, like us, will definitely be going back as food and service always good. Restaurant has very good menu and always willing to accommodate special dietary needs.

Excellent authentic Italian food
The pizza's and pasta's are really good. Try the spelt for something different.

Came here from midtown Toronto to meet up with some friends who live in the area. Great meal. Had the full snapper - delicious!

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.

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.

First rate service
As always, an excellent outing. The service, menu and wine list is second to none.

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.

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

I was beyond impressed with
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.
