Farina Neighborhood Italian Ratings and Reviews
Excellent experience. Split some dishes & they were served already halved. Wait staff were great & seemed to work well together. Wondered why they don’t have more accidents carried dishes given the pace everyone ran past each other. The place was packed so the noise level was a little high but with people having a good time. Also it still wasn’t so loud the we couldn’t hold a quiet conversation. Saw lots of interesting dishes to try at a later date but had the “Sunday Gravy”. Would be a hard not to order it again. Prices great given quality of the food & overall experience. Restaurant compares favorably to some higher priced Italian establishments.
Had a delicious sandwich with roasted chicken, artichokes and pesto on ciabatta bread. Came with a beautiful salad and their wine was half price! So of course I had to have a glass. Our lunch was on the late side and the restaurant was almost completely empty. There were still some guests outside. Would definitely go back. Food is excellent and atmosphere looks great. Support this great local gem.
Had out of town family. They were impressed and would like to return the next time they are in town. Wait staff were excellent, knowledgable, and accomodating for guest with questions. Servings are generous especially for take-aways after the meal. Prices were a value for the quality of food served. Have added to my go-to short list of places to eat. All in all, as my grandmother would say, I was replete.
Had a new server who seemed unsure of the menu and was a bit slow . The cannolis we took home for dessert were disappointing - too much cinnamon and the cream filling was grainy in texture.
The front door was left open so the reataurant was very warm while we ate .
It was like eating in a food court at the mall. People walking through the dining room to get to the hostess stand. Mediocre service. Food is good but I'd rather spend more for a much better experience. Probably good for weekday dining but definitely not for a relaxing dinner on a Saturday night.
This was our first time here, and our experience was excellent! Beverly was an awesome server who accommodated our every request, including snapping a picture of us with my iPhone for date night. The atmosphere is sophisticated and yet very comfortable and casual. You can feel right at home wearing jeans to dinner, and yet the service and experience feel very "fine". The wine menu offered some interesting Italian choices, which allowed me to try something new. My husband enjoyed chicken parmesan and it was huge and delicious. The breading on the chicken was a beautiful shade of brown and nice and crunchy, and the homemade marinara sauce was full of flavor. I steer towards lower carb foods and was pleasantly surprised to see spaghetti squash as an optional side. The kitchen put together a beautiful veal piccata over spaghetti squash for me. Having recently moved here, we enjoy trying new places and this one will definitely be our number one spot for Italian! Thank you everyone at Farina for a wonderful date night! Fino alla prossima volta :-)
Thank you for acknowledging my online reservation. Thank you for giving us the table I requested. It made the occasion that much more romantic. My husband and I enjoyed our dinner; and celebrating our Tenth Wedding Anniversary!!!!!! Thank you for the excellence you put into your hospitality, dining experience, and food. We've found a secret that we don't want to share. You really are a hidden gem!
We had 8 for a post-graduation family dinner. Farina was a great choice. They offer family style options, which everyone loved. We ordered group appetizers & then three family style pasta dishes, which we passed around & shared. We even had leftovers to take home. Good service & a fun place.
We took my 88 yr old mother for dinner on Memorial Day.. We wanted to show her Lafayette village & we wanted to eat outdoors... Found this restaurant on the listing of businesses at Lafayette village and we were pleasently surprised... THE FOOD WAS DELICIOUS... BEST FRIED CALAMARI WE HAVE HAD IN A LONG LONG TIME!!
