Never disappointed! Great service, wonderful staff and AMAZING FOOD!!
We came to our favorite Italian restaurant in NB for one of my granddaughter’s birthday. The food was great as usual and service was excellent!
The food was amazing. The bartender helped me create a new drink (and I subsequently had two!) We'll be back for another meal.
I'm always cautious about dining out on Mother's Day since it's so hectic. We thoroughly enjoyed a delicious lunch that was not rushed at all. We started with appetizers including calamari, carpaccio, burrata with arugula, and a prosciutto pizza. We ended the meal with another appetizer of eggplant and a gnochhi with marinara sauce. We were too full to order anything else. It's our second time at Il Farro and we hope to return.
Fabulous find in Newport Beach right near the pier. Prompt, friendly service. Excellent food. The owner took the time to speak with us and explain farro. Everything about Il Farro was exceptional. Definitely a place to return to!
The service and the food was fantastic !! We didn’t feel rushed and they made anything we asked for .. when we left they were waiting in line to get into restaurant .. great fine at the beach !
Very nice local, willing staff and enormous portions. Tasty food but nothing to do with Italian cuisine if you like the authentic version.
Great service , solidly good food in a little quaint located by the Newport beach pier.
Great food, Great service, and we had a wonderful time. Our waiter was great and was very informative. It was nice going on a night that wasn't to busy. Most times I have been there when it has been packed. Love the restaurant.
The food was amazing! The farro risotto style with asparagus and shrimp was amazing!
Always Fabulous!! They never disappoint
Excellent food and service at Il Farro. Perfect date night
Very good food and service. Good value
We can not go in the summer because of the parking
Always have a great meal
We had an exceptional dinner for our anniversary. The server was outstanding. The owner spent quite a bit of time chatting with us. We spoke about his family and our family. It was truly a wonderful evening.
First time there. Great food and good service. Price was a little high for lunch but the taste was worth it.
Had a wonderful Christmas Dinner with my son. The staff was superb and as a team provided excellent table service.
This place is the best!!! This was our first time going and the service and attention to detail for our party of 10 was outstanding. I highly recommend it. We had the veal, lasagna and chicken parm and the kids had pizza. Their exact quote was “this is the best pizza ever”. Thanks again for a wonderful evening. We will be back.
Great food, great head waiter; friendly as can be.
Great food and wonderful service. The chef even stopped by at the table and shared a dish we hadn’t ordered which was excellent. Wonderful family environment. Highly recommend!!
A great neighborhood restaurant with great food and excellent service.
Great food! Had the Farro spaghetti with shrimp and it was really good! The service was incredible! The bread was average but unlimited so that was nice! And it was not super expensive! Favorite thing of the night was the eggplant Parmesan! Did not leave hungry! Portions were massive!
It was extremely delicious. Food was way better than what they Yelp reviews say it is. The staff was very attentive to our dinner needs and worth the booking of reservations.
Good place to eat in Newport Beach when you want good food at a reasonable price in a nice place.
Our server was an arrogant jerk. It ruined our meal. He kept saying how Italian he was and wouldn’t answer our menu questions - since we are. It Italian.
Very noisy. Food was good and reasonably priced.
Enjoyable food, ate outside. Next to Newport Beach and lively.
Service was not great. But food made up for it! Delicious! Will be returning
Food was okay. Service was nonexistent.
Absolutely amazing! From the excellent service to delicious menu, this place is a great dining experience.
Except for the parking problem, its an outstanding restaurant
Great restaurant. I’ve eaten there before and new it was a good place to take a date. Only issue was after checking ‘date’ on the reservation in Open-Table they came and sang happy birthday to us. Haha. We got a free mini-dessert out of the deal, but the waitress was embarrassed.
This place NEVER disappoints
Good dinner and good food.
We come to Newport Beach every summer from Arizona and the 1st dinner we eat is always Il Farro.
There were 8 of us, all different orders and all delicious!
Loved it. Authentic southern Italian . Had the lasagna and would again.
The atmosphere was great, the food was awesome, the service by Pandita was outstanding!! Fantastic dining experience! Must try!
Always have a great experience. Waiter had a good personality and made it a nice evening.
Great for kids. So accommodating for dietary restrictions. We went twice.
Great place and staff
It is in a very nice location a few steps from the beach in a little courtyard type area. The greeter and our waitress were very nice and the service was good. We were very disappointed with the food and wine. We ordered the house chianti which was too strong and bitter and house pinot grigio was too sweet and syrupy. The cioppino which I ordered because of the great picture on the menu was really disgusting - especially the mussels. Not only did they smell bad but also tasted bad and had a mushy consistency. Cannot recommend. The bread put out before the meal was strange and not that tasty - definitely not Italian bread - it crumbled easily which was not fun when trying to dip it in the delicious garlic and oil mix. We will not be returning.
