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!

Many thanks to Marcio who handled our jokes and commentary extremely well. When we return we will try to get Marcio again!

Food and service were excellent. Nice wine.

Nice choice for dinner near Park Meadows / Lone Tree area. The romaine salad with Gorgonzola cheese special salad? So good I’m ready to go back just for that! All my companions cleaned their plates - salmon salad, arugula with grilled eggplant (he described it as caprese with eggplant) - delish!

My wife and I enjoyed our Friday dinner out at Farro’s. We had a very friendly and informed waiter Maritiseo ( from Napoli) . I thought the wines by the glass were a good value, I had a Cab-Sangiovese blend that quite good. My wife who is a meatloaf fan enjoyed the Tuscan meatloaf. I had the salmon which was well prepared. Our waiter took care of us and seemed genuinely interested in our dining experience.

Matthew does a fine job and we love eating at his restaurant. The food is good, full of flavor and creativity, and it's nice to be welcomed back as a regular. The food is not only tasty and interesting, but it's a solid value as well. I highly recommend Farro for everyday eating as well as special occasions. One final note: Get the peach salad small plate, it's amazing!

Farro is a neighborhood restaurant, and is very dependable in terms of quality of food and value. My daughter and I had the Main Salmon dish, which I have to admit I am always drawn to, because of its description in the menu and its delivery of the taste/quality as promised. My husband had the STROZZAPRETI- CHICKEN, which he said was excellent. Good wine choices. We recommend this restaurant to others and will return ourselves.

We took my parents to dinner at Farro. The homemade bread and relish; the carpaccio and the brocchiu cheese appetizers; and the entrees - meatloaf, rigatoni, chicken marsala and soup - were authentic and wonderful. The server was friendly and knowledgeable. Multiple personnel, including the owner and manager, stopped by to see how our meal was going and replenish water, bread, etc. A great restaurant disguised as a comfortable neighborhood hangout.

We had reservations but were given probably the worst table-- snug up in the corner near the restrooms. Whoever sat in the corner spot- good luck getting out. I ordered the spicy linguine with clam sauce. So, knowing that I love Mexican food and spicy food in general, I have to say this was way overdone and not pleasant-- it was way too spicy. I left most of the food on my plate and did not ask for a box. Most of the time this might lead the staff to ask if I liked it okay. If the waitress had stopped by earlier, I might've said something then, but she didn't and I didn't want to make everyone else wait for me. My husband liked the lasagna okay but the spaghetti was just okay according to the two other diners we were with. It's overpriced and not worth it, which is a bummer because I don't know any other Italian restaurant nearby.

Farro is a real treat for us - a favorite stop on the way home from DIA, special occasions and when loved ones visit from out of state.

We live in Colorado Springs - the land of mediocre food. We stumbled upon Farro on the way home from the Denver airport one day and it has become our “go to” restaurant when craving quality food at a reasonable price!

The menu is varied, substitutions are allowed, and always delicious. My favorite dessert is their chocolate mousse!

Service has always been good and every time we have been there the Chef stops by and asks how our meal was - every time!

Craving quality Italian? Give Farro in Centennial a try!

We dined there to celebrate my husband's birthday. We belong to their birthday club and because my husband turned 78 he received a large discount on his meal. However, he ordered the evening special of a Rib Eye steak and it was favorable but tough and chewy. He is not one to complain but if it was the special, I feel that it should have been a good quality. I hope it was a not bad piece of meat because of the discount he received. I had the lasagna and it was very good.

Ordinary food. Not bad but not great either. The décor (or lack of) reminds me of a restaurant in a small town in the 60's. Our bus boy was very attentive but our sever was not. Had to be asked more than once for a couple of things.

Cozy, unpretentious-yet-still-nice neighborhood vibe; friendly, attentive service; and fantastic Italian food. The seafood spaghetti, the lamb special, and the rigatoni special with a rustic sauce are fantastic. The wine choices are great. Terrific for a date, catching up with friends, or a family night out.

Fish was so moist & tender. Lovely thin & tender asparagus. Perfect meal. Sublime creme brûlée and after-dinner coffee. Server, Jim, so professional & accomplished.
