Dishes that lack of the flavor of classic Italian food, but lack the creativity of modern Italian food. Bland pasta cooked in under salted water, over cooked vegetables, and average service. LA doesn’t have great Italian food in general, but I won’t be returning here.

Farfalla is a convenient neighborhood spot for me. The ambiance is quite enjoyable but I have found the service somewhat inconsistent between the two times that I've been. Otherwise, the food is solid.

A little slow out of the gate with wait service, but not terrible. The pasta with smoked salmon was amazing, the gnocchi bolognese was fantastic, and my friends shrimp salad was great. A real neighborhood gem!

It was our first time at your restaurant. We we’re celebrating our 40th anniversary. It was fantastic. The service, the food - excellent! We are from Pennsylvania and the next time we are in town we will dine at Farfalla’s. Thank you for your gift of the dessert.

Got there at 7:30, our reservation time, and after waiting in the front for 5 min with nobody asking me if I have a reservation or anything, I had to walk through the restaurant to ask a waiter who can I talk to about reservations? A few min later I go ask what looks like a host about my reservation, its 7:40 now, and he said give me a few min. Another 15 min later and still no sign of a table or anything. I don't understand the point of taking reservations if you cannot be seated in a timely manner. My wife and I stood in the front, which was extremely crowded and got pushed around a lot, for another 25 min and we had enough and left. So much for trying a new restaurant.

Farfalla is a cozy place with scrumptious and authentic food. I had a date there and, both my fiance and me loved Farfalla. I personally liked the variety of wines that Farfalla has to offer.

Had reservation at 7:30 but restaurant over crowded and not turning tables fast enough. Didn’t seat until after 8 after checking in multiple times. Had to wait outside in cold. Restaurant host made it slightly better by giving us a round of Prosecco.

The food and atmosphere at this place are fine, but they do not honor reservations. I had made a reservation on Opentable and was made to wait 25 minutes to finally sit down, and that was only after we alerted the host to the fact that a table had opened up. Everyone else who we saw waiting had the same problem. It’s not worth going unless it’s a very slow night.

It was an excellent place to celebrate a birthday with friends. The food was delicious and the portions were big! The only reason why service received 4 stars was due to the fact the servers kept bumping into my chair during the meal. (It has a narrow dining room space.)

We had a reservation for 6 and were seated as soon as we arrived. Orders were taken and salads arrived. After that it was all downhill. The rest of the food took over an hour and fifteen minutes to arrive. This was after nicely asking our server. We asked the manager for help. No explanation was given. Other customers who were seated after us were getting their food.
I have been coming to this restaurant for years but it's been about a year and a half since my last visit. Sadly, this will be my last time.

We were seated 40mins after our reservation due to poor preparation and management of reservations. The manager did his best to make up for the poor service by offering beverages while we waited. The food was subpar; very bland in flavor. Despite our hopes prior to dining, there was no desire nor interest to return or refer others to this restaurant due to the subpar dinning experience at such a high price. The vibe was great but food was terrible. Very disappointed as it was my brothers birthday dinner and all left hungry and upset to pay for such.

In an area with a lot of Italian, I'd say this is the best. Much better than Little Dom's, a little better than Caprichio. Loved the farfalla salad and yuscan tomato soup. The lasagna is very unique, maybe not for everyone, but I really liked it. My girlfriend gave the salmon pasta 4/5. Said it was a little bland and needed more salmon but still liked it. I'll definitely be coming back to sample more of the pastas. The pastas are at a higher level than most Italian places and they have a deep menu to choose from

This is my new favorite place. My parents were in visiting, and we were exhausted after a few hours at LA Zoo Lights, and everything here was perfect. It’s cozy but nice, great music and comfortable seating, beautiful comfort food all around. I recommend everything I’ve ever tried, so don’t think too hard! My parents totally fell apart over the bruschetta...
