Farfalla Westlake is located at 'The Promenade'. The trattoria provides a very nice setting from the attractive exterior to the handsome interior, with beautifully appointed dark woods, cocktail-height tables as you walk in, and a full bar to the right. Spacious, Farfalla Westlake gives you the option of intimate seating either at our sheltered and heated patio or inside the main dining area.

I had a great experience dining at Farfalla in Westlake Village in the Westlake Village Promenade! The special occasion was a Mother’s Day dinner with my mom and I! The hostess’ were very friendly and accommodating. The waiter was great to us. The food was delicious!

Fantastic experience for Mother's Day lunch. Perfect day for the outside patio too. We started with the Tropicale salad, Contadina and the trio of house made cheeses special. All fantastic. For entrees we had veal saltimboca, veal milinaise and linguine Bolognese. All perfect. My whole family loves this place. They're also very accommodating of my son's nut and shellfish allergies. A+

Fabulous authentic Italian cuisine illustrated in specials presented by wait staff using photographs on iPads. Very attentive service with solid well chosen and curated wines for such a restaurant. A bit noisy in the main dining area which features weighty bar, bar tops, and banquet seating area in one long rectangular room with kitchen access. Outside patio charming, well-lit, heated and enclosed when necessary. Excellent Westlake choice for dining out. Family and young children-friendly.

We were seated 45min after our reservation time. Kept on getting different reasons why our table wasn't ready. We were greeted quickly by one server and then were taken care of by another. Food wasn't anything special and salty. It was a great disappointment. We have eaten there many of times and always had a good experience. Not impressed at all this time and might be awhile before we try again.

I dined @ Farfalla in Westlake Village on Friday afternoon, dining with my girlfriend. We sat in the patio area which was very cozy especially with heat lamps on during our meal. I had the home made ravioli which was good but a little salty. My girlfriend had the chicken salad which looked good. It was a good place to meet for a relaxing lunch.

I have dined at this restaurant numerous times. It offers good food, good service and an energetic ambiance. But, I must admit, this restaurant is one of the noisiest restaurants I have dined at. One cannot have a normal conversation at the table, as it is hard to hear each other. That aspect of it takes away from a nice dining experience. So, choose wisely.

Overall it was a fun evening and the service was excellent. Giorgio was a great waiter! My only complaint was that our table was on the patio right next to a large serving area. Should have changed tables.

It is always a good experience at Farfalla. The patio area is much quieter than the bar area and it was heated for the cold evening. The servers are all experienced employees and know that if you need to get to a movie, they get you served and out on time. Also food always comes up hot, so it has not sat waiting at the counter getting too cool.

Food and service was excellent. Ambiance is another story altogether. It's a popular restaurant and was jam packed on the Saturday night we were there. It seems that all the tables for two are on patio and believe me seating is cheek to jowl. As I said food was wonderful but it was hard maintaining my appetite as the couple in table next to us was describing their surgeries. A little more space between tables would be very much appreciated.

The food is great! Service is excellent. It’s a long, wood panneled restaurant though and it gets quite loud inside. It can be hard to hear what people across the table are saying. The excellent food and service are all big reasons to come here anyways though:)
