Blando is the imaginary product soldiers accused the battery cook of using to make food tasteless. It also could be applied to the meal we had at Farfalla. The restaurant itself is very nice, though the tables might be a bit close for private conversation on a crowded night. There were two waiters serving seven diners, so we were well... More

These guys do it right. This restaurant is near my home and offers plenty of parking, a relaxed atmosphere and professional service. The mozzarella cheese is made fresh by the chef as is the pasta. I have never had a bad meal here. Great place for business deals or a date. I highly recommend.

We weren't planning on Italian. Tuesday night. Not really super hungry. Right at closing time. They were gratious. Service was very good. Everything was fresh and house made. Steak was unbelievably tender. Ravioli was perfectly cooked. We were the last people in the place, but were treated to a relaxed well made and served dinner

Truly fantastic food and great service. Mind you it is the middle of summer and I was one of three tables at 8:30 pm...I also ordered the owner's and host's favorite wine to drink, but they definitely looked after me. Left me alone at the right times and we there at the right times. More than that the food was... More

My husband and I went here and we were surprised. The place was beautiful , the servuce was beyond that. The chef likes to meet each customer as they are leaving. The meal was well spaced between course's. We throughly enjoyed everything. The only downfall was no liquor, beer and wine only. Well worth the trip.

Ok... so I like veal! I know... I can hear you saying... "Do you know..." Yes... I know! Anyway, after having a bad veal chop experience at another restaurant in another city, I swore off veal! Till now! Their veal chop is as good as Peter Shields lamb chops are in Cape May, NJ. They have an excellent veal chop... More

We were a group of 4, 6:30ish on Thursday night. Reasonable decor - clean and relatively quiet. Things started well. Based on the menu, and some of the reviews, we were optimistic about having a good meal. Overall, the food was mediocre... really nothing we received was very good - not terrible just not very good for the price. For... More

On Feb. 13 it dawned that we had no reservations for Valentine's Day. Calls to our favorites came up empty so I tried Open Table for Farfalla and got a decent time. There was a line outside and even with the res we had to wait at least half hour. But we chatted with some nice folks and enjoyed a... More
