We were in town for a long day of business meetings and wanted comfort food. We found it!! The staff here was fun and seemed authentically Italian. I had the best Bruschetta with soft Mozzarella and fresh tomatoes that I've ever put in my mouth! My coworker and I almost fought over the last bite. I could make that my... More

Let me start off with the service: Everyone was very accommodating and the service was attentive good. They moved a table to create a larger one for my party of four. Then when we decided we needed to move again (more on that in a minute), they cheerfully helped us move again. Now the food: I had the ravioli with... More

We visited the Farfalla Trattoria in Westlake Village and thought it would be a quick bite (since it's part of an outdoor mall). Boy were we surprised! They have amazing cheese, wine, quick bites, pizza, pasta, salads, and more. We recently moved to the area and have been trying out new restaurants. This one is our new favorite hands down.... More

We've been coming for at least 15 years and it's always good. Our delightful server Antonella took great care in helping us select one of the many wines offered by the glass. We settled on a Barolo which was fantastic. Grilled fresh vegetables reminded us of what so many trattorias serve in Rome. This was followed by an arugula salad... More

Small restaurant, or is it that it is so popular that all the tables are filled. Expect to wait; they do not take reservations. Good Italian wine menu. Open kitchen. Fine Italian cruisine. Attentive service. Parking a few doors to the south. We plan to return

Was in California for business with my hubby. While he was working a friend and I went to lunch at this yummy restaurant. The food was awesome, flavorful, steamy and good. I would so go back there in a heartbeat next time I am in California. The only draw back to the restaurant is the parking was horrible!!!

We were in five in our group, our hotel recomemded it. We went on X-mas Eve and had a wonderful experience, the restaurant is very cosy with a nice atmosphere and an excellent service. The meals were exactly as we expected, full of flavour and of a good size.

If you are looking for an authentic Italian experience you will be as disappointed as I was when I decided to have lunch at Farfalla Trattoria Italiana. Spending most of my time in France, Italy and Switzerland I cannot agree with most of the reviews. I have no doubt you can have a nice time there, the service was very... More

I don't think I've ever been disappointed in a meal here. I have my favorite menu items - one of which is the pizza, Super thin crust with exactly the right amount of char around the edge. The Penne A La Norma is also a fave - and the Smoked Salmon Pasta is divine, but rich. Good atmosphere and easy... More

Have been to Farfalla twice on visits to Los Feliz and not been disappointed. It can get crowded so there can be a wait. i've had the salads, pasta dishes, and the skirt steak. All were well prepared. The entry area is very small but you can stand and watch the cooks prepare meals. Fun to see. Good wine list...the... More
