For omakase diners, this is a hidden gem that should be found more often…with the popularity of omakase dining today, where some restaurants can be repetitive in their offerings, Chef Atsushi explores combinations of ingredients to create unique flavors in the omakase realm…small, intimate and warm, we always feel welcome here…Hana Re is offers a quiet respite after a day of shopping at South Coast Plaza

Authentic Italian dishes focused on taste and quality, accompanied by the freshest signature cocktails and wine. Enjoy a romantic walk on the beach, watching the sunset, followed by a delicious casual meal at Il Farro, named for the hearty and delicious whole grain, farro. We import ours directly from Italy, where it is farmed organically, low carb, low gluten, high in fiber and, best of all, tastes AMAZING!
We also feature fabulous seafood dishes , like linguine del Pescatore , fresh halibut, salmon, mussels, clams, shrimp, calamari and more. Other dishes include steak, veal chicken, Finish your meal with one of our homemade desserts from tiramisu and gelato.
Established in 1993 Il Farro Restaurant sits in the heart of the Newport Beach Peninsula, right by the Newport Pier. Its cozy Italian atmosphere and its family-oriented service give our customers one of the best Italian experiences in all Orange County.

Absolutely amazing omakase experience in a beautiful setting. Unfortunately we were 15 minutes late for our seating but Chef and his wife were so accommodating and gracious despite this disruption to the flow of the omakase. Arrigato Gozaimas.
