Farfalle is usually solid. Last night they were off a bit. They re-seated us because of a large party. They served the wrong veal dish (got Saltimbacca, ordered Sorrentino). Didn't mention the steak special was $95. Overall, it was good but service was rough around the edges on a busy night. Watermelon burrata salad was very nice. Lamb Chops were well prepared. Steak was outrageously good....designed for two...not mentioned. Not the best farfalla experience but it was still good.

Food was good, but service was not friendly or prompt.
I've been here many times because I like the food, but I think I'll try somewhere else next time.

Expensive! Farfalla overcharges for drinks and starters making the overall bill far too high in comparision to other similar restaurants.

Farfalla’s is a great restaurant with an expansive menu. I try something new when we visit and I am never disappointed. Service is always excellent and the wine list is fabulous too!

The chicken picata and chicken sorrentina were both delicious, as was their lobster pasta special. My tablemate was not so pleased with his lamb osso bucca. Desert was yummy. Nice wine list.

As always - we had a great meal at Farfalla. The specials were excellent and the service was perfect. We have our favorites there but almost always try at least one new item and have yet to be disappointed. Great place to go in Westlake!

This was our fifth time there. The food is the best we have never been disappointed. Or
our waiter, Pietro is the best. The way explains the menu you want to order everything. A great place to recommend to your friends. Cannot wait to go back.

Food is always fresh and tasty. Very good service, and that is not the case for many other restaurants. I was very impressed at how much time the employees were spending to clean the kitchen prior to closing.

We had a wonderful time, celebrating my birthday. My dad and I had a special which was risotto with a lobster tail and shrimp. It was delicious. My mom had the special which was linguini with shrimp. She said it was delicious too. We will be returning. We highly recommend.

Excellent dinner this past weekend at Farfalla. This was not our first time there, but our first time in over a year. The food was excellent, perfectly prepared, and served hot. In the past, we have found Farfalla to be too loud, but it was not this time. We also found the service to be attentive and efficient. Will definitely visit again.

Too noisy. Waited 20 minutes to be seated for 7:00 reservations. Fettuccine was drowned in sauce. Pizza was bland.
Won't go back.

Nice place, good food. Only complaint was that we made res for 7:45 and were there early..I let them know we had a res and we were seated just a few min after res. At 8:01 I received a voicemail from the restaurant adv if I wasn’t going to use the res to call so they could give the table to someone else...what? Also on the res I let them know it was my husbands bday and of course that was not acknowledged.. oh well food was good.
