Authentic Italian dishes focused on taste and quality, accompanied by the freshest signature cocktails and wine. Enjoy a romantic walk on the beach, watching the sunset, followed by a delicious casual meal at Il Farro, named for the hearty and delicious whole grain, farro. We import ours directly from Italy, where it is farmed organically, low carb, low gluten, high in fiber and, best of all, tastes AMAZING!
We also feature fabulous seafood dishes , like linguine del Pescatore , fresh halibut, salmon, mussels, clams, shrimp, calamari and more. Other dishes include steak, veal chicken, Finish your meal with one of our homemade desserts from tiramisu and gelato.
Established in 1993 Il Farro Restaurant sits in the heart of the Newport Beach Peninsula, right by the Newport Pier. Its cozy Italian atmosphere and its family-oriented service give our customers one of the best Italian experiences in all Orange County.

    The food was authentic Italian, everything from the bread, sauces, pastas and desserts were homemade! The service was also amazing. We will positively go back!

    Fernando was very attentive. Unfortunately we ordered 1 dish Vegan and they added butter. They did everything to make it right after discovering the error. Hopefully this will help them going forward with any Vegan diners that just a little butter not needed or wanted. With that said the other dishes were well prepared 😊

    Went for lunch with no expectations. We both ordered the lunch special which was sole with lemon and capers. It was so delicious and light, perfectly cooked, I could have eaten another. We asked for a plain green salad with lemon and oil also perfect. We were so impressed that we’re going back for dinner next week. *****

    Excellent service, food and ambience. Chef O prepared some wonderful dishes for us, especially the Farro alla Barese. We enjoyed Il Farro very much and look forward to our next visit.

    Very nice restaurant in Newport. Freshly made pasta dishes with a perfect cook on them. I don’t think I’ve ever ordered a farro dish in my life but I greatly enjoyed the one I chose. We had a couple other dishes as well, all very good. Our waiter was very enthusiastic and friendly. Chef O came out of the kitchen to greet us and go over several vegetarian options. Each one sounded better than the last. Even the bread was fresh and delicious. Beautiful pictures line the wall and a throwback nba classic game was playing on one tv which I enjoyed as well. Would definitely eat here again. I’d like to try everything. Thanks il farro!
