One of our favourite restaurants for special occasions and anytime. Service was excellent and food delicious. Felt safe and well distanced.

We went to the Farmhouse during the partial covid lockdown period. The restaurant did a good job of placing tables appropriately. The pizza and fish stew we ordered were excellent. I thought the glass of wine was a little on the pricey side. Overall a very enjoyable experience.

Everything was above and beyond. My husband and I went out for a romantic dinner, and that it was. Such a beautiful, cozy space. Our server was professional and personable and the food was incredible. We will definitely go back next time we are in Bragg.

First off, we really like this place. The patio in the summer is great, the food is delicious.

Unfortunately this time was a bit of a miss which was disappointing as it was a special occasion we’ve been really looking forward to for many years.

Our waitress perhaps could use a bit more training around reading the table. We literally sat down and she asked what we wanted to drink before we even had our coats off, never mind giving us any time to look at the drink menu/wine list. Our appetizers were good. Unfortunately we hadn’t even finished them before our main course was brought to the table. None of the dishes that were empty had been cleared so there wasn’t anywhere to even put down the main course. We had to hold empty dishes in our hands so they could place our meals, then seemed a bit annoyed when we asked them to take the dishes off our hands. We would have liked wine with dinner but our waitress didn’t reappear until our meal was more than half finished. My spouses meal wasn’t what he ordered. We ordered dessert and the waitress let us know we could ask when we wanted the bill. Within five minutes from the time she said that, she brought our bill. Just really missed the mark this time in terms of the overall experience. I was even a bit embarrassed as it was us treating our guests.

We very much enjoyed our meals, the ambience, the setting, the service and that it's only 30 minutes away from where we live. It was not overpriced. Our server Elliott was youthful and thoughtful. We hope to make this dining place a regular experience in our lives. Looking forward to trying out the pizza next.

We enjoyed a lovely evening with Kirk as our server. He was attentive from a distance and there when we needed anything. Our food from appies to dessert was delicious and fresh. A lovely anniversary evening.

The Italian Farmhouse is a very fine restaurant. We have dined here many times and enjoyed all aspects of the experience. The reason why I rated the food experience at only three stars this time is because my choice, the Margerita Pizza, which I had here for the time, was laden with a mountain of mozzarella. It had none of usual exquisite culinary touches that are so characteristic for this fine establishment.

The pasta, stuffed shells, and green salad were very good. The brussel sprout, salad was served cold, was tasteless, and we would not order again. The chocolate dessert with raspberries and whipped cream was quite delicious.

The setting is very pleasant, farmhouse style with lots of distance between tables.
We would like to come again in summertime and try patio seating.

Very disappointed in this visit. Food took an hour to come. Server was rude. I ordered the orrecchiette and it had a distinct seafood flavour to the sauce, and no seafood was part of the meal, and the chicken bits were old and dry. When I mentioned the flavour, the server took it away and took it off the bill, but offered no replacement food. I left hungry. For an Italian restaurant, they should also offer table bread. I have been to this resto before, and it's usually much better. My dining companions also had "just ok" experiences.

not very welcoming, the food was good, although I have never been in an Italian restaurant before that didn’t serve bread while waiting. food was spicy which we like
but there was no warning on the menu. loved the cloth napkins.

25 minutes for garlic cheezebread? We were discouraged from ordering this because of timing...really? Why isn't there a way to speed this up so we could have enjoyed it with out our appetizer or meal? Ridiculous that something so simple kinda put a damper on the meal.

We were quite shocked that tables were not spaced out a bit better. It seemed a bit reckless during Covid to have all the tables in one area packed while the other area remained empty. Coming from Calgary it was odd to see customers entering and moving abut without face masks. Food was excellent though as was service.

This is my second visit to the Italian Farmhouse - both were for special occasions and the Farmhouse came through both times!! Last time three of us shared the Lasagna and a Pizza - delicious choices and generous portions.

Food was delicious!! Love the couches at the tables! Our server was ok. After every course we had, he insisted on always commenting on how we ate it so fast, or if we wanted to lick the plate! One comment was enough, but after the bread, appetizer, main course, then again after dessert...it was just too much and not necesssy!

This was our first time in a restaurant since March 15 when COVID marched in and took over our lives. This was a perfect place to go for our 53rd anniversary as we felt we could trust their protocols re the virus. We felt very safe and the food is always wonderful here.

We have always enjoyed dining here. Five of us had a most fabulous, delicious meal but one of us had veal and he found it to be dry and a bit tough. Dessert was very good but not the tiramisu I was expecting, from previous visits. It was more chocolate and a bit dry. But the pumpkin spice dessert was amazing.
Out waiter was very attentive and pleasant.

We’ve always loved The Italian Farmhouse. We were disappointed to find out the meatballs had changed from veal to boar - the boar meatballs are nearly as flavourful as the veal were.
