Nice place to take a group
Nice place to take a group in a not overly formal place. Quiet enough to have converse easily. Great ambiance!

A Great Find
Our group really enjoyed Faustina. Very cool environment with a pleasant outdoor dining area. The salads were terrific and the various entrees we ordered were good, with the Steak Tenderloin being outstanding. The service was prompt and we enjoyed a quiet, relaxing environment.
We would definitely go again.

We Shall Return!
A very comfortable and pleasant place to dine with great service and fair prices. Free off-street parking was a definite plus.

First Time Visit
This was our first time trying Faustina. I must say we were very impressed with the food and the service. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable about the food. The stuffed beef medallions were so tender it basically melted in your mouth. We will definitely be back!

I have been the Faustina's many times and I look forward to returning again!
5/6/2013 4:00:00 PM

Great Neighborhood Gem
From the outside you might be struck by how small it looks but once you go in you'll be surprised by it's openness. The wait staff is very friendly and quite knowledgable about the menu and preparation of the dishes. Food is wonderful! Everything is plated beautifully. Save room for desert!

Nice menu that has something for everyone. Dinner specials are tempting as well. Reasonable prices and good service.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was amazing!!! My date and I had the lamp chops, citrus salad, SF Cippino and Beef Tenderloin. All, I would recommend. We also had a few drinks and our bill came out to be 78 bucks? Cant beat that!!!! Our server was so awesome and on top of everything, I had a major headache when I walked into the restaurant, he was kind enough to dim down the lights at our table which did help. I was surprise to see how empty the restaurant was on a Thursday night. Their outdoor patio looks pretty nice. Cant wait for it to warm up a little. Decor was not to bad, not over the top, just perfect for a good gathering with friends or a date. I will have to make Faustina one of my food stops from now on. I am a foodie so they will see more of me. ha

Four of us meet at Faustina's for lunch almost monthly. The staff is always very welcoming and accommodating to our needs. The food is consistently delicious and the seasonal menu rotation gives us plenty of choices. We have never been rushed. It is our "go to place." Oh, and they let us play bridge there after lunch.

Our favorite in Salt Lake
When Faustina first opened, we went to a soft opening and have loved it ever since. The food and service are always excellent, and we often celebrate special occasions here as it remains affordable and unpretentious considering the superb cuisine.
6/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fabulous Salmon, Tomato Soup and Creme Brulee. Attentive, not intrusive, service. Highly recommend for a romantic or special occasion. Lovely interior and quiet patio dining. Dined early so cannot comment on bar scene. Off-street (free) parking and easy to find.

Had a double bachelorette night dinner there, had a nice table outside, great food and great drinks! We really enjoyed ourselves!
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Faustina - Yum!
The ambiance at our Sunday Brunch was perfect - sitting on the patio in the shade of the warm day, enjoying the quiet setting while catching up with family. The food was very tasty! The service was good. While I think it would be okay to bring kids, I didn't see any while I was there (and that was good by me). Overall I would recommend Faustina.
Pros: Great food, quick service, ambiance
Cons: Once we paid the check, we never even got another water refill or were spoken to

A Fantastic First Experience!
We have heard about Faustina from friends and family for quite some time, and paid our first visit recently. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent, service was great and the atmosphere is upbeat and pleasant. We will definitely add this to our list of regular downtown spots!

The Bridge Ladies
Our little bridge group loves Faustina! We go for lunch and cards once a month or so and always receive wonderful service. With their seasonal menu, we always have a new items to try although its tempting to enjoy the same favorites each time.
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I don't remember where I heard about Faustina but I looked it up online and saw the menu and was stoked to try it. It really didn't disappoint at all. The house staff was brilliant and friendly. The food was absolutely incredible. The presentation even was magnificent. I could go on and on about how much I love Faustina and will be back many many times.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Large group dinner
We had the occasion to enjoy dinner at Faustina with a group of eleven. They were very accommodating and handled the large number of diners well. The orders were taken promptly and the appetizers and entrees arrive right on time. The food was excellent! I would heartily recommend Faustina to any and all.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, even better service
Me and the wife loved dining at Faustina this last weekend. I had the gourmet mac and cheese with chicken and she had the chicken Caesar salad. Both meals were great but I found myself stealing the wife's salad because it was one of the best I have ever had. The waiter did a perfect job and made us feel at home. I had to leave a nice tip because it was such a great experience. Definitely will come here again.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pleasant experience with great food
Sunday brunch menu is terrific and the mimosas are very tasty.

A Quiet Night
It was a Sunday night in SLC so it was pretty quiet, there were only a few people in the restaurant. The server had to take care of the entire restaurant including the patio and to be the bartender. She was very energetic, knowledgable and was extremely friendly, just stretched a little thin. I had the Salmon which was delicious and my husband had the lasagna which he said was very good. The interiors are contemporary with neutral colors made it a soothing and comfortable place to have dinner.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Exactly what we wanted
Met another couple for dinner. The ambience was perfect, the serving staff appropriate (showed-up often enough to refill drinks, etc., without getting in the way of conversation, etc.) The food was a gem: perfect if you are a foodie. Everyone was pleased with their dishes.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
All the main dishes and apps were very good; however, for our tastes (there were 6 of us) the salads (caesar and house) had a little too much dressing. Perhaps a touch more than we are used to.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took my family there for Brunch, we had 5 different dishes, all were amazing.
The best mimosas ever especially for $3 each!! Loved it, going back very soon!
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed our experience at Faustina. My scollops were delicious. Jordan, our server was very.efficient. It was a nice
neighborhood spot. We will go back.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
I brought an out of state client to Faustina. It was my first time as well. I had the salmon and loved every bite. Service was great. I was very well pleased.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food ranged from very good to excellent. Most of us really enjoyed our entrees; one person felt that the scallop broth was lacking on the saffron flavor and I think that my pasta was over-cooked a little. However; we ate everything without a complaint. I had a house salad as well which was excellent. The desserts were also excellent and tasted homemade.
The menu has plenty of options but not overwhelming, and the wait-person was very knowledgeable about the menu and wine list.
The best thing about this place is its ambiance. It is actually quiet!! No ear deafening conversation, no creepy music in the background. I would definitely bring a small group for dinner here to enjoy the food AND the conversation.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We loved this place, atmosphere
We loved this place, atmosphere and delicious food we will definitely be going back often and bringing friends to enjoy this place!

We had a very enjoyable first experience at Faustina. Looking forward to our next visit

Faustina Friday 6 September
The service was superb! Food was great. Both salads (citrus and Caesar) tasted great, a little rust on the Caesar, but the taste, cheese and croutons were great. The Bruschetta (featured appetizer) was great, I really enjoyed it, my wife noted that the reduction may have gone too far.
The service was par excellence!
Gourmet Mac N Cheese was to die for. The arrabiata spaghetti was sweeter than spicy, probably a pass.
Chocolate lava cake desert was tart, I'd prefer a larger scoop of ice cream, but I'd order it again.
Overall nice presentations, good food, excellent service, and nice atmosphere. I will dine there again, and am also looking forward to trying the meat dishes and the lunch menu.

the food is fantastic! I love the oatmeal brulee ,the cinnamon pancakes, and of course the mimosas!
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had never been to this restaurant before. We came to try the Dine O' Round special and was pleasantly surprised by just about everything. The citrus salad is amazing as well as the bread. The seafood scampi is a great choice. The strawberry cheesecake was quite good but not over the top amazing. Overall a wonderful experience and my wife and I will be back to try some of the other great sounding meals.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM

Faustina never ceases to impress with their kind staff, comfortable and classy atmosphere, and incredible food. You all provided a wonderful last outing for a highly valued and respected member of our team. Thank you.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time going to this restaurant
First time going to this restaurant and I would return. Lunch was busy but our server was very mindful of us without being bothersome. Will bring more people next time so they can experience Faustina too.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dinner!! Sure to return!
Faustina's done it- I'm spoiled!! Shrimp Scampi topped with the perfect sea scallop!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good slow service
Anti pasti was amazing. Goat cheese on citrus salad was incredible. Pasta was good but didn't blow me away. Best panna cotta I've ever had!!! Will definitely return. Service was excellent! Slow pace and attentive!
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the truly great places in SLC. Highly recommend.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I recommend this restaurant
Faustina is great restaurant! I like the menu selection since there is something on the menu for everyone. Aside from the food being delicious they also have some unique drinks that are fun to try. I was there with a large group of people celebrating my Birthday and it was nice because we were at our own table, kind of segregated from other tables, and the service was awesome. I definitely recommend this restaurant!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a wonderful dinner - the wait staff was very knowledgeable & friendly. A great meal finished with a fantastic dessert!!
10/20/2013 5:00:00 PM
The food was excellent and our server was charming and efficient. I was looking for a place that was nicer where we could visit and get to know one another better. It was everything I was looking for.
Thanks for the great service.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have had three excellent experiences at this restaurant. It's very nice without feeling stuffy.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I planned this dinner event for a siblings birthday. I thought it was time for upscale dinner experience for him. I've been to Faustinas before and LOVED IT. The food was great, atmosphere perfect and staff helpful. It was quite busy. My only suggestion would be that the service was a little slow. Other than that is was a perfect place to celebrate a birthday for an intimate group.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was outstanding and I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. It would be a perfect place for a first date to a group of friends getting together for a night out.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Dining Experience
Great Food! Great Service! Quiet atmosphere. We would definitely go back.

Great Thanksgiving Dinner
We were coming to SLC on Thanksgiving just to hang out so we were not sure if we could find anyplace to eat aside from fast food. Luckily we spotted Faustina! What a find! We love finding new restaurants in SLC and were surprised we had never heard of the place before. The 4 course Thanksgiving dinner was great with a lot of variety. I am a vegetarian but my husband is not. The menu had plenty of options for both of us (they even altered the meat course for me). We plan to come back again when the weather is warmer to get a chance to sit outside (little too chilly for that on Thanksgiving). Our server was great, we had very little wait between courses. Overall a great dinner.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
I had such a wonderful experience. I made the reservation for my Father and I. My Father broke his hip the night before Thanksgiving. So I took my girlfriend to dinner sine he was in the hospital. It was a great meal and we had a wonderful time. It cheered me up since he wasn't able to go,
