    The focaccina with burrata and prosciutto will change your life. Walnut pesto pasta is incredible! Get lamb if they have it as a main. Fresh fish flown in from the Mediterranean!

    Been here twice while visiting and both times have been among the best overall dining experiences I've had. Service, food, wine selection, all of it. Top notch.

    Handkerchief pasta w/ their award-winning pesto is an absolute must. And although their wine selection is very good, I have to recommend their tequila cocktail, "Prohibito."

    Try the charcoal pizza for alleged health benefits and a fun opportunity to time how long it takes food to pass your digestive tract!

    The bread is awesome. Appetizers might be enough for a light entree.

    Focaccia calda with wine is a MUST. Several menu items change every week - very creative and tasty. Finally, the chef is very cute!

    Great date spot with great pastas, try their Pansotti Al Sugo Di Noci. Pricey? Yes, but when I'm not paying for it.....

    Don't think this helps but there is a huge discrepancy between the good dishes and the bad. The pesto is great

    Now I know how the italians stay so skinny! My dish was good despite a little overkill on the walnuts but imma have to get a slice somewhere!

    In a city full of Italian restaurants, this is the place to go for fresh pasta.

    Food was great, but service is TERRIBLE. For the cost, you would think the servers were a little more attentive.

    The $25 corkage is on the high side, but buy a bottle from their list and get corkage waived on one bottle.

    Bread is STALE, beyond stale. Pasta is too salty, sauce is also soooo salty. Who uses black pepper in a white sauce? #cheftalk

    Should've listened to others. I don't mind paying $$$, but service was not up to par. Ant on my table, fruit flies everywhere, very overpriced wine (used Vivino), and Why am I pouring water myself?

    The interior looks great but the acoustics are terrible, it's really loud. The value for money wasn't great.

    Sunny day, too late for lunch, too early for dinner. Take your favorite book, find a sidewalk table at Farina, and choose a glass of wine. Order handkerchief pasta with pesto.

    Good but not good enough to justify the price tag. It's way overpriced. I've had much better meals for less. Service was reasonable but not exceptional. Would not return.
