Met here for a Birthday party, the service and food as excellent. They even provided a scaled down menu to allow all the food to arrive quickly and together for a group of about 20.

We could have easily shared a meal and are glad we took our server's advice and ordered a half size salad.The Caesar Salad was very good, also the cappelletti and the Chicken Parmesan. Service was a little slow, but not too bad. Decor is a little cheesy and dated. $50 for two including salad, and a beer. Recommend.

Every meal we had here was delicious and the portions perfect. We especially loved our dinner of scallops and pasta - delicious!

We visit family 4-5 times a year in North Bay. We always make sure we include a dinner at Farina's. The atmosphere is very nice, quiet and relaxing. The food is always great and well presented and the service is second to none. Great place to celebrate a special occasion with that special person(s). A definite must!

This is a wonderful little restaurant. The food is excellent and served hot. Reservations are recommended as it is a small place. When it's busy the service suffers but when it's not the service is wonderful. Definitely recommend for those special occasions.

I have ate at Farina's three times now with girlfriends, and it is so delicious it keeps us coming back for more. The Mushroom Ravioli is especially good and I would highly recommend trying it. Service is very good, and price is very reasonable.

The food in this restaurant is delicious, and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. We ate here several times during a two-week stay in North Bay, and tried many of the dishes on the menu. Everything was tasty, fresh and satisfying, with reasonable prices. The only complaint came from our nine-year-old daughter who was disappointed with the lack of variety... More

Food is homemade (pasta) and atmosphere is very nice. Had dinner with 8 lady friends to celebrate Christmas together. We sat up and away from other guests which was enjoyable so that we could get a 'little loud' when we wanted to but had a lot of fun and meal was great!

I keep going back to Farina because I love the quaint warm atmosphere and the food is very good. I have always had great service with friendly staff. I have eaten there for both lunch and dinner and I have never been disappointed. The prices are also reasonable. I think this little place should be on the map for a... More
