Farfalla was a go to restaurant for me when I lived in Echo Park in the 90's. Now I am back in the neighborhood and can still drop by and gorge on Pasta Norma. What a lovely tradition to fall back on. And, while it feels a little more grown up inside, it's still got all the lovely touches, personal service and comfort of the early days.

Delicious delicious!!! Seated right away. Felt really homey and comfortable. Service was a little on the slower end but the staff kept filling drinks and checking in. Certainly wasn't an issue as we were taking our time eating. Large selection of menu options and had lots of gluten free options! Would definitely go back. You won't be disappointed.

this is our go-to restaurant. We had three bad meals in a row, and were beginning to lose faith. Just bad luck. Dinner the other night was A+ and just fantastic. These folks were early to farm to table. Good quality. The penna arrabiatta was killer, albeit even a bit "angry" for me.

Rather average meal. I was quite impressed with Farfalla 2 years ago, but I'm trying to remember why. I celebrated my friend's birthday there a few nights ago. I had eggplant Parmesan and the sauce looked and tasted like a thick tomato soup. My husband is allergic to both tomatoes and potatoes and he requested not to have these two items in his dish. He had chicken piccata and you guessed it; both items were on his dish! All in all; Average taste. Service was very good and they brought out a Piece of tiramisu cake with a lighted candle for my friend’s birthday and the cake was good. I won't be returning to this restaurant, though, as the taste and quality of the food was just average and didn’t match up to the price. I would choose Palermo's over this one. There wasn’t one moment where I took a bite of food and said “mmmm”.

Sweet looking place right on Hillhurt in Los Feliz offers an ambitious menu. Sadly only 1 of our 3 dishes stood out. The other two were just mediocre, agreed on by the 3 diners n my party. The ambiance and wait staff were lovely.

This was our first time and we were thoroughly impressed. We enjoyed the halibut special and the tender flank steak. Excellent service. Wonderful family-owned Italian restaurant. Perfect for a great meal before our trip up to the Greek Theatre. We’re looking forward to returning.

Just got an overall, we’re too busy to be nice vibe from this place. From the first person to tell me the host will be with me when I asked, to just getting water and a drink order taking too long, to asking for more water and iced tea. I dunno, I’m now disappointed will likely not go back again anytime soon

Do not go if you want something special. Farfalla USED TO BE a great neighborhood gem. But sadly that is not true now. Italian food has come along way since 1995 but Farfalla still serves dishes and prepares them like the 90s. The sauces are too heavy, the flavors are muddy and nothing is put on your plate that makes you happy you went to the trouble to go out. And tragically the pasta is overcooked as well. It would be a welcomed restaurant if it were in an airport, because the food is poorly imagined, given in a factory like fashion with NO SERVICE. Our waiter took FOREVER to come to our table and take our order and then took forever to return with the food. And throughout our meal, never once checked back in with us to see if things were OK and if we needed anything. We complained to the host at the door and he did very little. Several other people in the surrounding tables around us felt the same way that the service was no where to be found. WORSE service EVER. Nothing special about the food or the place and the service is horrible. It's sad because we used to really enjoy this place.

We are new to the area and have been here a few times with our family. Everything we've tried has been terrific. The menu offers a wide selection, the food is created with fresh and flavorful ingredients, and the service is friendly and attentive. They even gave us a delicious lemon cake for my son's birthday. We'll keep going back and recommending Farfalla to friends.

Farfalla always impresses me with how they make incredible dishes so tasty . Pasta is pasta...but not here. At Farfalla pasta is an experience and one you remember and taste until your next visit just so you can order another dish. I've had pasta, pizza, polenta, soup and salads here and each time I'm amazed what they can do. Thank you

We had a grat dinner
Homemade pasta was done perfectly
Pizza was very good and one of the best ceasar salads
The choice of chardonay could have been alot better, however my husband liked the pinot grigo
We were seated at the reservation time, and the resturant was very busy due to concert at the Greek.

Good food, but this is LA and there is good food everywhere. Won't be back until the bust thru the wall next door and make this place bigger. Disconnect between the amount of diners (lot's) and the size of the dining room. Too close, too warm, too loud

A nice family Italian restaurant with large menu and neighborhood feel. Very informal (kids certainly welcome) with reasonably large menu and wine list. Prices are modest by LA standards. The food was quite OK -- not what I would term memorable, but reasonable value for the price. My dinner companions agreed. I'd return for a pleasant, modestly priced meal in a very informal setting. Would probably not return for the quality of the meal.

We had a good friendly meal. The amatriciana was delicious and the salads were great. The chicken picatta was a little gummy from its breading and sauce and the pizza was slightly underseasoned but not so much to ruin things...

Great neighborhood place to have wine & appetizers & dinner. Interesting wine list. The bar side is a bit louder than the dining room. Outside seating too. They do have a parking lot in the evening which is a bonus in that part of town, parking is a premium. We were with a large group for an engagement party & the staff was very accommodating. Would definitely go back again & need to try the pasta tossed in the Parmesan wheel.
