    Graduation. It took over an hour for our appetizers and then another 40 mins for our food to come out. Our waiter rarely checked on us while we waited to offer bread or let us know what was happening.

    A very good experience overall. Service was good when available but the number of servers was inadequate, resulting in some pretty long delays. Right now with the Covid pandemic I realize that getting servers is tough so I will wait to see if this improves. The food was excellent, and the ambience was above average. It was very crowded when we dined there so it was very noisy. I will definitely be back and look forward to an even better eperience.

    No bathroom changing tables == Many visits to Farina. However this was the first time with our Daughter from out-of-state with our six month old grandson. The restaurant was very accommodating and their were lots of your children having dinner. We went early at 5 30 hoping to dine early when families might be dining too. It was disappointing that my daughter had to leave the restaurant and use the public bath room in the outside circle to change her sons diaper.

    This was the first time we were there having discovered the place visiting Juballa many months ago. While a little bit more on the expensive side, the ambiance of the place is great, the food was very good (perhaps a bit more sauce on the rigatoni would be good) and the service was excellent. It was PACKED at dinner time on a Sunday and did get a little loud at times but not overwhelming.

    This was our first time at Farina and won’t be our last ! It was outstanding from start to end. Great service and outstanding food and wine. We had the scallops wrapped in bacon appetizer, veal saltimbocca and margarita pizza. Loved all of it. The South African Chardonnay was delicious and my husband loved his Chianti. Can’t wait to go back!

    My husbands had a tbi so we went out early to have a quiet quick delicious meal. They sat us in an empty dinning room on the other side of the Hostess area. It was the loudest worst table why would you seat a family near the door if the entire room was empty. Drinks were continually empty when they were filled drinks were returned to wrong person. She kept saying whoops. Food was lacking flavor. We have eaten here before but I guess like everywhere else has gone downhill None of the appetizers or entrées were good. We didn’t complain just paid bill and left knowing we won’t waste our time or money again at this establishment.

    Great ambiance, service and food. Noise level was a little out of control because we had a table with kids beside us. Very nice waitress and good service. Had the goat cheese ravioli and carbonara and both were delicious. Would recommend for a date night or fancy girls night or family celebration.

    Great place for dinner. Always good service and great food. However, be sure to tell your server to hold your entree until you have a chance to eat your appetizer. The kitchen will send the entree out 2 seconds after the appetizer arrives. Just mention this to your server and enjoy your evening. Love the place.

    I love Farina! It's one of the best if not the best Italian restaurant in Raleigh. I was disappointed with our last visit as our server was not very friendly or attentive. He did not greet us when we sat down or engage us in conversation and we had to flag him down and request to place our order after waiting for about 20 minutes.

    We went fir TRW and the portions were very generous considering everything was smaller on the prix fixe menu! Our service was outstanding without being bothersome. Our only reason for not giving 5 stars was the entrees were a little salty. We would just ask on our next visit to be light handed on the salt. We will be back!
