Excellent food and service. This is a great neighborhood restaurant.
Great quality .. would definitely go again and recommended
The server was very knowledgeable about the food and was able to recommend several outstanding dishes. I am vegan and it was wonderful to get assistance without having to explain myself.
Food is great as always, nice fresh pasta with plenty of options.
Chairs not too comfortable, quite loud in there and service is ok - they seemed a little harried on Mother's Day........they were out of one of their major wines, which was odd, but gave us a substitute that was excellent.
My girlfriend and I enjoyed our dinner date at Farfalla - Los Feliz Saturday evening. We lucked out and found street parking. We had 8pm reservations and got there a little earlier than that and the place was buzzing. We had to wait about 10-15 minutes to talk to the hostess to let him know we had reservations. The restaurant is on the smaller end so it was a little crammed since it was a Saturday night. We enjoyed the Ravioli Di Margo with the cream and tomato sauce - that sauce was truly something else! We accompanied it with the Salsiccia E Arugula which had an amazing taste and the crust was light and fluffy. The wine and beer were fairly priced and we finished it off with a great tasting Tiramisu. The staff were all really attentive and friendly.
Excellent food and service. This is our monthly visit as usual. Alejandro and team take care of us.
Everything about this restaurant was incredible! The food was delicious, the service was amazing, the staff was so sweet, the ambience was perfect, we can’t say enough great things about this place! Wow! Highly recommend for a night out!
Simply the BEST!! Great food, service, wine.. real Italian food that is consistently delicious.
Food was excellent. Authentic Italian dishes.
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.
Farfalla is a neighborhood charm, always great food and service. You can't go wrong when you dine here.
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!
Always an excellent place. Been coming for years and it never disappoints.
A wonderful authentic Italian kitchen. I love that it offers a gluten free pasta option and a excellent pizza crust from there pizza menu!
Warm professional service .
Excellent in all areas... and now they have introduced happy hour... my favorite Italian restaurant.
Absolutely was impressed with our dishes! Service was exceptional and the ambiance is incredible, perfect for a date or any occasion. I think we found our place for Italian in the neighborhood.
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.
Wait was 1 hr even though we had a reservation
The best Italian food in town. Excellent service and very good prices.
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.
Love this place. We’ve been coming here for years. The food is great and good quality. The value is amazing. Very nice ambiance.
The food was fabulous as always!
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.
Neighbor Gem! Been going here for years and it never disappoints. Great wine list.
Food was amazing as always! The flavors are so authentic.
Wonderful longtime neighborhood favorite. Delicious food and warm service, just watch the parking meters! Use their shared lot if you can.
First time here, recommended by friends. I look forward to going again! Excellent food, staff and environment.
I recommend it to everyone! I also eat there as often as I can. I just love the place!
some dishes are better than others, some outstanding including steak salad, any of the raviolis, mushroom rigatoni, wines are great
Farfalla is always excellent. Great food and highly recommended.
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.
Lovely place i will go back . Everything was excellent server was very friendly made us recommendation and we loved it.
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.)
if they have ravioli's as one of the specials, don't think, just order it!
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.
Excellent food & service. Wine is great, also.
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.
Very popular local Los Feliz restaurant. Authentic, tasty Italian cuisine. Friendly service. A bit noisy, but it was busy.
