It's rare to find authentic lasagna. Plus, the service is personable and warm too.

My family and I have been eating at this (independent) restaurant for years. Every meal, every time, has been excellent. The service is consistently exceptional. This is my favorite Italian restaurant.

We feel like we found a new favorite place close by!! What a hidden gem! Mauricio was our waiter & we feel as though we “bonded” - really loved him. The food was great! The prices reasonable- not a single bad thing to say. We will return - soon! We’ll be asking for Mauricio too!!

We absolutely loved our dinner at this restaurant. My food was amazing and on par and above high dollar dinners downtown Denver. We will definitely be going back and cannot recommend this place enough. The Halibut was ridiculously good.

We discovered Farro a couple of years ago and dine there once a month or two. We usually order the special(s) which never disappoint and are always delicious. Prices are moderate, even cheap considering the quality of the entrees that you get.
Chef Franklin always comes by all the tables to check on his guests.
The service is great - we are especially pleased when we get in Maurizio's section. He is knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the food served there.
The wine selection is extensive, moderately priced and tasty.
Buon Appetito!

Nice. Not exceptional but really nice. Do try sizzling shrimp in garlic source, it is their best appetizer.

Been here several times over the last few years, and there are no changes in the menu; not sure if it is a plus or minus though.

Tenth annual pig roast at Farro. Such a treat and excellent as always. Strawberry shortcake dessert was a yummy take on a classic. Adam made sure we had a wonderful evening. Matthew and Dayton made sure we felt very welcome.

The food is always excellent. Although we have our favorites on the regular menu, the nightly specials are also very good. The service wasn't up to it's normal friendly standards, it was efficient.

Excellent service. Servers are very attentive and friendly. Clean. As for the food, it was beyond our expectations. The lasagna was flavorful and the sauce was delicious. We’ve tried their wine before which was very good. The price was competitive with other places. We are all in for another visit.

We had calamari which was pretty good, the chicken marsala was very nice, and seafood spaghetti was really good, a nice bottle of chianti all on a really hot day so was nice not to cook. This is often a go to spot for us, consistently good food and service

We've been "regulars" at Farro for quite awhile. We appreciate the consistently good food and especially the warmth of the staff. It's nice to be remembered and welcomed.
Palisade peach with burrata small plate...I look forward to it every year. This year's preparation didn't disappoint.

We felt for the price, it was on the expensive side. The portions were ok and the taste of food was good. If you live close, give it a go. I wouldn’t take the time to travel to it.

Farro has been our go-to place for years. We have eaten our way through the menu and have our favorites but lately we have focused on the specials ... delicious small plates and entrees, which focus on fresh seasonal ingredients.

Last weekend we shared a small plate of Palisade peaches & burrata with a white balsamic vinaigrette dressing. We almost licked the plate. Then we both had a New York strip steak with a mushroom sauce. Absolutely delicious, so tender. Cooked to a perfect medium rare. One of the best steaks we’ve ever had, and we’ve done the whole Elways-Shanahan-Del Frisco circuit. This is the first time we’ve had steak at Farro and won’t be the last. The steak was served with broccolini & au gratin potatoes, which I’m sure would have been great, but we asked to substitute their amazing three cheese polenta for the potatoes & turned a great dinner into a fabulous one.

Only one minor complaint: asked for a quiet booth but when arrived several couples had been seared right before us. No booths available, seated at table which was louder than I had hoped. Otherwise, very good meal.
