Wonderful prepared food. Great house wines. Only negative was being charged for substituting a vegetable for potatoes on my meal and risotto on my wife’s meal.

This was our first visit to Farro. Our waiter was Italian and loaded with charm. We had a fabulous beet salad that was on special that night. We also enjoyed a bottle of wine recommended by our waiter. The remainder of the meal was average but we enjoyed the authenticity of the experience tremendously and will most likely try it again. Our waiter made the entire experience worthwhile!

We had a family dinner after the theater here. My husband and I frequent this wonderful restaurant and keep bringing more and more friends and Rehen possible! Each of us had exceptional meals, special trout dish, mussels, pasta, salmon. All of us were delighted with our choice as each dish was delectable and beautiful in presentation. Drinks and wine also were perfect. A very enjoyable evening!

They were pretty slammed on Saturday night, but that's to be expected. Food quality was great and service once seated (we had to wait just a bit, no biggie) was top notch. Clearly a popular place!

Grewt food and terrific service. Mauricio made us feel very much at home. No better place to catch up with friends. The chicken strozzapretti is wonderful. It was super busy tonight so the noise level was high, but the atmosphere was still welcoming. Love this place!

First time coming and the service was perfect. My husbands lasagna was not to his liking, tough pasta but he loved that it had a lot of sauce. We will give it another try again.

we have dined at Farro's for serveral years. Never have been disappointed in their food or their service. When the food is brought to your table it is always hot...not lukewarm like at many restaurants. Their food is outstanding...always fantastic specials of the day. The owner makes himself known by coming to your table and just to make sure you are satified. THe servers have been with him for years, always attentive and helpful....Just an all around great restaurant!!

We have been coming here for years and although we live a good distance away, when we want a delicious meal and great service, Farro is our go-to place. Always disappointed elsewhere. Matt is a great chef and his creative salads are to die for.

My first time dining here and I was impressed by this strip-mall restaurant. The special was a good-sized pork loin chop cooked to my specifications and my dining partner's linguini with clams was excellent.

Excellent neighborhood gem that serves authentic Italian food with great staff and wine priced perfectly. While others restaurants seem to always be short staff, not this place. Some are even Italian! Check out the white bean prosciutto soup!

I go to Farros often. It's one of my favorite restaurants in the suburban area. Good food, service, ambiance, noise not terrible. Nice people run this restaurant. The special pig roast dinner this weekend was good - everything but the pig. None of the four of us liked it. Maybe it was toward the end of the pig, as it was 7 pm. Dry, chewy, some bites were inedible. A disappointment
But we'll go back. Just not to a pig roast.

Since we eat here pretty often, we needed to try something different instead of our usual favorites. The salmon served over risotto was fantastic as was the pork chop which was one of the nightly specials. The service is always prompt and friendly. And this particular night was pretty busy, but they had enough help to keep things moving along. This is definitely the best restaurants anywhere in this area.

We went for the first time last Tues night for our anniversary. My husband had linguine with clam sauce and I had cioppino. Both were fabulous! Super flavors. The bread at the table was fresh and the wine list was not out of control price wise. Our server did an excellent job.
Have told everyone about our experience. It will be our go to Italian.
Thanks for all you do....YUM!

We loved the new server, Kimberly. She is efficient and friendly and a great addition to the Farro family, whom we've grown to love over the years of dining there. Farro will always be a favorite!

We love Farro’s —the service is outstanding and the servers are always knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. There’s usually a great Evening Special and often it’s a delicious lamb dish. Last time we tried a Palisade peach salad with fresh Burrata—wonderful.

It is the best restaurant in the Denver Metro area. Never ceases to amaze. It is an Italian restaurant, right? Thursday night, one of their specials was braised baby back ribs on a bed of Gorgonzola mashed potatoes. Best barbecue in town.

Went for a Wednesday night random “date night” and it was perfect. The food (rigatoni sausage and all-meat pizza) were amazing. And you can’t go wrong with a carafe of their Montelpulciano house wine. All in all, a relatively inexpensive date ($53 + tip) for a night that easily could have been $90+ somewhere else. Will definitely be back!

This was our first time at Farro but certainly will not be our last. We were 6 friends that are hard to get together but we are so glad we did. We were first in the restaurant when they opened and were seated at a great round table. The food was excellent and wine great. Everything was reasonably priced. We knew Matthew, chef and owner, from his 240 Union days and he certainly has a gem here. We will be back soon.
