The food was very good, the service attentive and our overall experience was well worth the money. This is not something I say often about most restaurants. Many restaurants are overrated and overpriced for the quality of food you get.

This is one of our favorite Italian restaurants in the South Denver area. The food is excellent and we feel whenever a fish entre is offered on the menu it will be excellent. The wait staff can make a restaurant wonderful and these folks fit the case. They all make you feel at home are really friendly.

We have been to this restaurant several times now and I have never had a bad meal. I always get
the Sea Bass dinner and it is absolutely wonderful! Love, love, love it. Wanted to try something
different each time, the I simply cannot pass up the sea bass. It's a great restaurant, always lots
of people so would suggest reservations unless you get there early. Friends introduced us to this place and we have since recommended it to several more who have tried it and loved it.

We eat here fairly often because it is our favorite restaurant in this area. The food and service is always very good. And we enjoy the neighborhood feeling of the place. They have nightly specials which are usually a real treat. And we've tried just about everything on the menu and haven't been disappointed by any of the selections.

We went to this restaurant because of the rave reviews it had received. I was disappointed from the moment we walked in, but decided to make the best of it. The restaurant is in a strip mall, which did not bother us in the least. The interior of the restaurant was austere, however. Our bread and appetizer were tasty. My husband enjoyed the shrimp pizza we ordered, but I did not. I ordered tiramisu for dessert and was again disappointed. It was served in a small glass jar and did not taste like anything special. The chocolate bits on the top of it did not add to its flavor.
The best thing about the restaurant, by far, was our waiter, Mark. He was warm, friendly and knowledgable. We will not go back to this restaurant.

My wife and I always enjoy dining at Farro. The food and service are consistently good and the wait staff is very friendly. In lieu of eating a dessert, we frequently opt for a tiramisu martini, a speciality of the house.

We went for our third visit to Farro. This is a very nice neighborhood Italian Restaurant with a nice family owned feel to it. The menu is great and the service is friendly and efficient. I recommend the mussels for an appetizer and my wife loves the salmon as a main course. The chocolate mouse in a jar is fantastic.

The food was excellent. The service exceptional. There were 10 of us and everyone loved their dessert selection. This was a celebration of my 78th birthday. Our server presented me with a double shot espresso containg one shot of grappa, which we had talked obout earlier. This was unexpected and a wonderful gesture.

This was my first time at Farro’s and it won’t be my last. The food is great, and their menu has a good variety of Italian food. I had the sausage and peppers over three cheese polenta, and my friend had the sea bass with Yukon gold potatoes. Both of our dishes were delicious!!! Martini and glass of Pinot Noir were great too.
