Delightful Italian Restaurant

This has been my go-to for years whenever I'm in the area. The food is amazing and the outside seating comfortable just a block from the beach. We always have a good time and enjoy the freshly made variety of Italian dishes.

Don't judge a book by it's cover, this place is terrific. Everything is homemade and the portions are very generous. It's definitely a family run place, these guys have been here for a while, and they have it down. Try anything with fresh seafood, the cioppino is amazing, you could share this dish, but don't! Homemade breads and desserts are... More

Average food and welcoming staff. Place is not so special, not very clean. We asked to change the plates as it was not clean. You can see the kitchen while setting and you can sense the level

This is our favorite place to eat on Newport Beach! We are pretty much regulars there now. The waiters always greet us like we are family! The service and the food are awesome! Both, the employees and the owner really take good care of all the guest. This place is great for couples on a date or families with kids.... More

We just got back from lunch at Il Farro, where my husband and I shared the Farrotto con Salsiccia and the Farrotto alla Milanese, both of which were recommended by our waiter. They were both incredible. It was nice and quiet, and the service was excellent. In addition, it was less expensive than the mediocre lunch we had yesterday. My... More

First things 1st: This is an Italian Restaurant, even though you are in Newport Beach don't order seafood here, if you do you are missing the point. All or at least 90% of the pasta, Pizza and Bruschetta dishes are made here, and that's what the locals are ordering when they eat here, do the same and you'll be singing... More

My wife and I eat here every chance we get. However the tourists make this difficult in the summer, and by fall we get out of the habit of going there. So i takes us a while after the tourits lease to start eating there again.

The restaurant is small and very popular, so I would guess reservations are strongly recommended! The service is friendly and the food delicious!

We had lunch here yesterday. The calamari starter and bruschetta were excellent. Both the salmon with mustard sauce and the sole were perfectly prepared and accompanied by pasta with a delightful tomato sauce. My wife's ravioli was exquisite. The farro bread was fresh and very tasty. Service was excellent. The wine list had a good selection at reasonable prices. We... More
