Interesting, extensive menu. Fairly priced.
Fabulous , will return often.
Have been here frequently but not for a few years, disappointed to find the tables so close together, so lost some of the ambiance. However, the food and the service remain excellent.
Lovely restaurant which has been in this spot for 20 years - long before there was any reason to drive to Estero. Its worth the drive.
This is our second time at Ristorante Farfalla. They are very accommodating to Gluten Free diners. Our waiter was well informed, and offered many options. However, the restaurant was SO freezing, we ate (with jackets on, I might add) and left quickly. Most all other diners were wearing jackets as well. Food cools off immediately and it is very uncomfortable to have the cold air blasting on you.
Tables are very close to each other which makes conversations a bit hard to hear and talk in a personal way.
Over the last 4 years we have always received excellent serice and outstanding meals. The pasta dishes are to die for.
Excellent food and service as usual. Will visit again from Naples in a couple of weeks. Worth the trip!!
I had Lobster Ravioli and by the time it was served to me it was cold, the meals my friends got were really good one a pasta dish with lobster mussels and clams and the other a red snapper, both well prepared and good
Owner got verbal, yelling at the entire restaurant, that 3 women turned their meals back...had never happened before, was going to”call the cops”...ruined the evening for us...should have comped the meals and politely asked them to leave and not come back, as he obviously could not please them...my meal was so-so at best.
Being Italian, we were very excited to go to Ristorante Farfalla for dinner. The food was well prepared and delicious. The wait staff was very attentive and concerned about our understanding of the entire menu and interest in our having a great dining experience. And we did! We will go back!
Visiting our daughter at college
After an absence because of distance from Naples, found everything to be excellent as in prior years. Excellent combination of food quality, good service and reasonable pricing.
Plan to return again soon with a special lady friend!!!
Very busy night , but staff worked very hard and the food was worth it!
Nice place. Good service and food.
Good food great service nice bistro.
As always it was a wonderful evening at Farfalla!
The sole fish dinner was good. I ordered the pounded & seasoned chicken breast dinner which I found to be bland. The vegetables served with it were very good.
We have been going to this wonderful restaurant for over 12 years. It is consistently good. Food is very fresh and cooked perfectly..
Chef Michael is the best!!!!
Nasty hostess! Gave a whole lecture about why we couldn’t have a particular table even though the restaurant was empty at 5pm.
Mediocre food, not hot even tho there were only 5 tables full when we ordered.
Will not go back
Amazing Food. Matched by even better service!
Great food and great service. A minor wait for our reservation but overall a very pleasant experience.
Went to Ristorante Farfalla on Valentines day. Seated right away. Friendly staff. Food was very good. It was full, being Valentines, but not overly noisy. About average prices for nicer places in SW Florida. Will be back.
I am seasonal to this area and was looking for new italian option. Went with a old friend and were seated quickly. Waiter went thru the specials and we had drinks in about 5 minutes and food came out perfectly timed. Food was very good as we both ordered different appetizers and main courses. Very comfortable environment and host was great. Will be going back!!!!
Really, a wonderful NON-CHAIN restaurant where the chef (and owner) cares about the quality and experience of the patron's meal. Excellent service and even better food. Amazing. In the words of Arnold Schwarzeneger (sp?)... "I'll be back". :-)
First, after reading several reviews of slow service we tried to speed up our order to not suffer like other previous customers. Our entree took 80 minutes to arrive. The taste of the food was OK, but nothing that justify such a delay. I had an angel hair with shrimp, while I was eating I felt something strange in my pasta. There was an elastic band inside my mouth. I call the waiter and the chef came to me and explained that this can happen because of the way they keep the pasta using elastics bands. Because of all of those huge mistakes they offered us free coffee. Please do not go this place. They are not professionals.
This restaurant always gives the very best in food and service. Our favorite!
Up scale restaurant with culinary chef quality meal... quite nice dining experience
Great food and skilled servers. Loved the atmosphere with soft lighting, white tablecloths, real candles and pleasing music that allowed conversation - getting hard to find! Cozy, relaxing and romantic. Anxious to return.
Food and service was excellent as always The desert was also amazing
Outstanding restaurant — never disappoints. Pasta is handmade and sauces are superb.
Great restaurant. Owner Mike is the chief and takes pride in each meal served. Farfalla has been open for 20 years. I fell in parking lot after arriving for dinner. Hostess saw me fall and immediately provided assistance and first aid. Still had great dinner as usual.
Have always had an excellent meal and great service here. Have recommended it to a lot of my friends.
Extremely busy on the Saturday night we visited, and the busier than we've seen the place in the past. Service was very slow ( they warned us beforehand ), but food was very good.
Service was extremely slow. it seems as though they could use more servers. my wife order pasta bolognese. it was hamburger over noodles. no sauce whatsoever. She asked for sauce and 10 minutes later the server cam out with it. She said everything is made to order. i find it hard to believe a bolognese sauce can be made in 10 minutes, unless it's Ragu. Any way Maitre d did finally come over. We questioned him as to is this the way this entre is supposed to be. He said he's only been there for 3 months and has never had it so he didn't know. But the waitress when my wife asked how was the the pasta Bolognese, she said it was their best seller. the table sitting next to us said it looked like hamburger helper over noodles.
The food was good but not over the top as I had heard. Our server was very knowleable of the specials and the menu.
The service was extremely slow. My dinner, Fetticine with meat sauce was terrible. It was extremely bland and dry. My friend's dinner which was the ravioli special was also unappetizing. I will not return there nor will I recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Well prepared Italian cuisine, but incredibly slow service. Hard to determine whether the problem was the server or the kitchen. Waited 20 minutes for the salad and another 45 minutes for the entree. House was not busy. We were a party of 2 in room of no more than a dozen diners.
