Excellent food, though disapponted in the limited gluten free options (one). It was a bit loud for a special occasion because it was too cold to sit in the outdoor area away from the bar and kitchen. We really enjoyed the evening however!

The best service I’ve had in ages! Perfect food. Nor inexpensive, but with more than most. Too loud—and I’m not sensitive to noise.

Where do I start. We have been to Farfalla many times. I was so disappointed with the staff tonight. We had a reservation for 7:15. We arrived at 7. We waited 45 minutes when I noticed that everyone that came in after us has been seated. They gave our table away to another person with the same first name. They preceded to tell me they had an earlier reservation. LIE! I sae their time. We finally got seated and had horrible slow service. The waiter spent NO time with us. The only positive I can say is the food was good and they gave us a dessert. I'm so disappointed.

We always love it here, our favorite place in town. We’ve tried other Italian places around but none compare to Farfalla. The only thing that was bad about this particular visit was that we were on a tight schedule and we couldn’t stay longer!

Very busy! Happy hour was raging so we were seated on the patio. Because we were early, a table of two mom’s with kids were nearby and also noisy. Not any fault if the Resturant. Next time we’ll dine a little later.

We sat outside on the patio and it was fine. There were a couple large parties so it was really busy. The serive was good. Only minor compliant was when ordering my dish I had an option of roaster potatoes, mashed potatoes, and vegtables. I choose Mashed Patatoes and they came back about 5 minutes later and said they were out so I asked what other options and they said you can have more vegtables or roasted potatoes of which neither I really wanted so I said I guess roasted potatoes. Then I looked at the menu and noticed that pasta was also an option which was never brought up to me. When the server came back I said can I actually have the pasta and he said of course. Food is priced well but liquor is very expensive as I paid $10 almost per beer. Ouch.

I had the Veal with artichokes, sun dried tomatoes, etc. It was delicious! We shared the Beet salad and that too was great including the grilled goat cheese! For dessert we had the Peach tart with chocolate gelato and it was outstanding! Definitely going back. We sat on the patio but with the heaters and enclosures, it was fine. We also met these 2 fabulous ladies next to us and struck up a terrific conversation.

We went to Farfalla on a Saturday night. It was very busy, so we ended up sitting at the bar and the bartender was very attentive and gave us great service. My wife and I ordered pasta dishes and they were both excellent. Highly recommend Farfalla!

Food was acceptable, not great and prices on all menu items was too high relative to the quality. Much better values at other Italian restaurants in the Conejo Valley. You can sit outside under heat lamps where it may be less noisy, or in the main room which puts you near the kitchen and bar areas - making it almost impossible to have a conversation during dinner. On the plus side, the menu is extensive and the service was very attentive.
