    Three of us enjoyed having lunch at Di Farina-Pasta. Our salad courses were very good, and the meatball soup was delicious. Fish and pasta entrees were very pleasing. The owner was very welcoming. Our server seemed to be somewhat inexperienced, but he worked very hard to please us. We look forward to having another meal at Di Farina-Pasta.

    What a fabulous dinner experience at DiFarina's! Italy is our favorite vacation destination and this dining experience was absolutely authentic! Extensive menu, perfectly prepared food and the pasta is all made in-house. Family-run, the service was impeccable. Although the decor is modern rather than traditional Italian, the space is light, bright and spotless with comfortable seating. We will be back often for this wonderful foodie trip to Italy, with all its charm.

    We had 6 PM reservation and never received food until 7 pm. The noise level was very high. Not conducive to a relaxing evening of dining. Did not bother to stay for dessert. I would not go there again or recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    Arrived at this small eatery at 7 pm for 8 pm dinner reservations. We were starving and overestimated how long we would be stuck in traffic. We were hopeful that we would have been seated as the restaurant had several open tables. Instead we were allowed to sit at the bar and watch the open tables for over an hour. No apology, instead we were told at 7:15 pm to seat ourselves. As we sat there we noticed other people walking in and being seated right away at odd times; clearly not times booked on Open Table. The lobster ravioli was underwhelming. When I asked for extra sauce, I was questioned if I was sure by the owner. The hubby got sick from the salmon. The gnocchi my cousin’s girlfriend ordered was tasty and they enjoyed the flan. The ambience was nice and the Mascato was good. If you’re local it’s a decent date night location. It definitely wasn’t worth our trip from Melbourne, Florida.

    Owner more interested in smooshing customers than running a restaurant . Staff was in a disarray, poor training evident. Chicken piccata over cooked and dry. Accompanying pasta lacked enough garlic flavor, wh a crime with alioli. Second and last visit.

    This is my 2nd meal at Di Farina in the in the last few weeks. The 1st was a group dinner with friends, tonight just 2 for our anniversary. Both dinners were outstanding. Everything is fresh, great quality, subtle delicious flavors, perfectly and not overpoweringly seasoned, not alot of salt. Both dinners had excellent service, very attentive, even the group of 20. Not a single negative about anything. This place is a GEM.

    Our first experience was great! We were welcomed warmly and with excitement. The wait staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our food was very tasty, well prepared and presented nice. The only thing was the noise level, very loud, very hard to hear about specials. We all had something different, chicken picatta was a little dry but the sauce was spot on. Carbanara was amazing, all pastas were amazing. We will be back

    Charming place with wonderful food. Pricey for a strip center type of place but very well done. Had the gorgonzola dates appetizer - delicious yet expensive for 5 dates; the artichoke ravioli - again, delicious yet expensive for the portion size and cannoli for dessert. Lovely experience in a lovely little place.

    Excellent service by the manager and (few) waiters. The food and wine selection at DiFarina is always very on point. A customer and I had a brief business appetizer + drink appointment and he was floored by the food. We had the grilled octopus, empanada trio and meatballs, and everything was simply delicious. The flavors are seamlessly integrated to that no specific flavor overpowers anything else. My only slight observation is what is common in South Florida (and maybe everywhere else) right now: slow service due to, I guess, a lack of waters. I waited too long to be asked for a drink or water, and I'm there pretty regularly. Just something for the very hard working manager (who was there every time I visited) to look out for. In all, I was glad to have impressed our customer with DiFarina's food, wine and ambiance. DiFarina is a go-to place in Pompano that is easy to get to, has plenty of street and private parking, is casually elegant but you can dress up if you wish, and has some of the best Italian food I've had down here in a while. Give it a try and be gracious with the hardworking team. They deserve it.

    I read the great reviews and saw the mouthwatering photos. My husband and I eat out a lot so we gave it a go. Sadly, it did not live up to the reviews or the photos. Yes, it is an energetic and pleasant place. The food, not so much. Bread is average at best. Mussels in wine had a very strange taste - I would never get them again. Risotto with shrimp was the same taste and consistency as Zataran’s rice out of a box. My Ceasar salad has no anchovies, no Parmesan cheeses and 4 very tine croutons. Mostly romaine on a plate. I asked for salmon on the salad. I don’t know why the server asked how I wanted my salmon cooked because there was so little salmon it never mattered (3 tiny bite size pieces was it). Dessert was no better. I did address my disappointment with the server. The server said “oh” and that was the end of it. Apparently our disappointment with dinner did not matter to anyone in the kitchen or managing the place. Sadly, this place gets a very low rating. Maybe the pasta is good but we are not going back to find out. There are too many Italian restaurants in the area with much better food.

    My husband and I dined on Sunday Dec 11. We had a 6:30 reservation and were seated promptly upon arrival. Marcelo was our server. He was very knowledgeable. We started with the mussels in Garlic.. they were delicious. Then we both had one of the dinner specials. We each had the lamb shank, which sat on a bed of pasta with grilled asparagus. It was amazing. very good recommendations from Marcelo when we arrived it was moderately busy, which became very busy quickly. It was a little noisy but it was a lively fun atmosphere.. Definitely will be back!!!

    Read the stellar reviews before coming and boy were they spot on! Clean, modern space. Excellent service. Absolutely delicious food. Perfect pasta and those that got the fish special said it was the best fish they've ever had...and these are world travelers so they've had their share of fish. Highly recommend. Do make reservations as it fills up quickly. You will love it!

    Very welcoming, great service, attentive, antipasto appetizer enough to share, was delicious, short rib ravioli special is a favorite, ( we have dined here quite a few times), fish is always fresh and prepared uniquely. Prices might be a bit more, but worth it for a fine Italian restaurant. As I said our go to for great food !

    Can't find better authentic Italian food anywhere. This was our third time eating here and the menu is amazing but the specials should not be missed. I also stocked my freezer with all kinds of fresh pasta and sauces so I can enjoy their food anytime. The service this past weekend was not the greatest, but the other times it was wonderful. Don't miss this restaurant!
