IL FARO restaurant & bar
Came here with 12 people for my nephews college graduation. The service was amazing and the staff was really friendly. Thank you for your hospitality.
We had a large group (11) and everyone was happy with this restaurant. Only compliments were heard, which is hard to get with a large group. A couple in the group were Gluten free and really appreciated having so many options on the menu.
Everyone said the would return. I am not from the area but would not hesitate next time I am in town.
Food was great, as usual, services was a little off, as in slow, but otherwise, a great time
Food was good but not great and we would have liked more bread
The bread was delicious...the best part of the meal.
Really great service. Friendly. Would definitely go again.
It’s always an amazing 5 star experience at IL Faro. The service is efficient, personal and caring. The food is mouthwatering delicious and inspired. Love that they use local ingredients. And the seasonal cocktail menu never disappoints. Treat yourself and enjoy the wonderful dining experience we all deserve!
We always have a wonderful meal and service!
Always good food and excellent service. All staff are courtesy, friendly and you always feel welcome.
IL Faro is the neighboorhood restaurant that everyone loves. The proprietors Cris and Jessica make every guest feel special with the excellent service they provide.
This place is an absolute gem.
This is my favorite restaurant! The Owners are fantastic and create a fun atmosphere with delicious food. They engaged the community and everyone feels at home.
Great restaurant. Food and service excellent. Had the vodka sauce penne
Service was wonderful. We were greeted by all the staff as we walked to our table. The food was delivered timely and it was delicious.
Il Faro is a wonderful gem. The food is outstanding, the wait staff is efficient, friendly and helpful. The way the tables are spaced allows for easy conversations and you never feel rushed.
Just a great place!
Il Faro has the best Italian food I've found around the area. I've had quite a few different dishes here and have never been disappointed. It has a great ambiance, super friendly staff, good beers on tap and awesome food, you can't go wrong here.
As frequent diners at Il Faro, our meals are always delicious and the service is impeccable. The owners want to make sure their patrons are happy. They are attentive and kind. They take pride in not only the quality of the food but the presentation as well. It is rare to have such a gem so close.
Always good food and great service. All staff are very friendly and on top of things.
When the only good thing you can say about this meal was that the flash fried kale on the calamari appetizer was good, you know you are in trouble. My Chicken Milanese was passable but presented in such a way that it looked like a plate of arugula with some grape tomatoes thrown over it. The chicken was not visible. Presentation is important. My husband’s Chicken Marsala was very unappetizing and over cooked. The pasta sides were uneven in temperature from lukewarm to cold. The staff did their best to try to convince us to order other things but we had lost our appetites. They comped the meal, but I have to say it was very disappointing after a friend had recommended it to us.
This has to be the worst food and service i have Ever experienced. It was loud the food was over priced and disgusting. I had To leave and go to Wendy’s which was a 20 compared to this hell hole.
This is a local gem. I highly recommend you give this place a try if you’ve never been. It has wonderful food energetic atmosphere and accommodating staff. You will not be disappointed.
IL FARO has improved so much done they first opened. We love their friendliness. A good bar selection and interesting cocktails. Food is well seasoned and we are never disappointed.
Everything was greet!
Owner was lovely and hard working. Great food and service. Great prices
Pan seared sea scallops, unbelievable, my only complaint is that I could've eaten another order or 4, it was that good
We had such a lovely night on Valentine’s Day. Friendly, attentive staff, seated right away, held our reservation even though we were running late, accommodated allergies and the food was DELICIOUS. Great live music, cozy atmosphere and we even got roses! Wonderful experience, would definitely recommend.
Great people, great atmosphere and Fantastic Italian food
Always great service and food.
Great service, good meal, all around great experience
Outstanding! Jess & Chris are dedicated to quality service.
Been here twice in past three weeks. Tried both appetizers and dinner options as well as dessert.
All the food was excellent. Service was good both nights. One with a group of 10, another with a table of 4. The manager came over both nights and followed up on our satisfaction. The food is thoughtful and unpretentious. Portions are not large but you won’t be hungry when you leave. A bit pricey for a weekly spot but a great date night or special occasion restaurant.
Always good food and serice. Coneenient to my apartment but go for food and the friendly atsmosphere
Impeccable service! Great food! Love sitting at the bar!
Always great food & service here. Jess & Chris, the owners, treat patrons like family
Charming little neighborhood restaurant with good, traditional Italian affair. Service was excellent with a very personal touch by one of the owners.
We are never disappointed at Il Faro. The changing seasonal menu is always interesting and delicious. The service is friendly and accommodating. Everyone in our party agreed that Il Faro is a neighborhood gem!!
Service was pleasant but both my drink order and salad were not what I ordered. Food was of good quality. It was quite noisy and made it hard to have a conversation without competing with the other parties. The tin ceiling and sparse decor, while attractive, do not make the atmosphere quiet. We might try again before writing this option off our personal list
When we bring new people to this restaurant everyone comments how much they enjoyed the atmosphere food service. If you read reviews and like to trust open table reviews I highly recommend this restaurant. Yes there are more expensive Italian restaurants in the capital District but I love to support a family owned restaurant with genuine people who truly care about their customers and the quality of their ingredients please give this restaurant a try
Caught in traffic, we arrived late but were warmly and cordially received. Our waitress, although new, was pleasant, thoughtful, and attentive. The drinks were outstanding, both cocktails and wine, the dinner superb, and the desserts "to die for." We will definitely be back again.
Great service (especially when the owner is serving). They go out of their way to make you have an excellent experience. Service is everything to me so I appreciate it. Mostly have loved the food. Penne Vodka is one of my recommendations. Had one experience I wasn't 100 % liking my entree but it wasn't terrible. Off nights can happen or I picked the wrong dish (it was a special). It's cozy and good for a date night or meeting up with a few friends for dinner. Gem in the area!
This was our first time going and we enjoyed everything from the bread to the desserts. We like that the menu is seasonal so there is good reason to go during each season. We will definitely go back.
Awesome dinner. Jess and Chris are a wonderful host/chef combo. We will make more frequent visits in the future!
