We'd been driving around southern California all day and had a hankering for Italian for dinner. We remembered seeing some places in Balboa earlier, so as we drove through Newport Beach, we decided to check a few of them out. We parked and walked in and were very pleasantly surprised. Great staff. Great menu. Amazing food. I had the Chilean... More

This is an interesting place, right down by the beach. My cousins chose it and I found it and was able to park ok. There were so many options and everything we had to eat was delicious. My cousins who live nearby, go here often.

Great place to get some real Italian food at a reasonable price. The staff and owner are very friendly and have maintained a very high level of quality in the food.

We had the pleasure of dining at Il Farro last weekend. We stumbled upon this restaurant while walking through the shops of Newport Beach. What a treat! Our server Vincenzo was wonderful. He made great suggestions on dinner and wine and dessert! After hearing him tell us that the dessert he recommended was traditionally served on Easter and was such... More

Il Faro is a place one wants to like - as the location is good, and so is the food. But . . . hospitality is lacking - and the staff is not welcoming. Better to consider the options in Newport - and find a better atmosphere.

Never imagined that this small café on the beach would be such a great place. The food was excellent, well presented and cooked (pasta al Dente)! What made it much more memorable was their staff; they were very attentive, fun and friendly! I would return to Newport Beach just to eat here.

My wife and I walked past this place while looking for somewhere to eat and we were drawn in by the lovely garlic aromas. The decor and layout was very Italian. We had to wait 10 mins for a table inside but it was worth it. My mixed grill was very tasty as was my wife's pasta and it was... More
