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

I asked the waiter if I could have pasta instead of potatoe and he said ok but charged 5.00 for it. I didn't make a fuss but it was not the right thing to do We all enjoyed our dinners but it is a little pricey. The Tartuffe dessert does not have a hard chocolate shell ....it has a weird... More

From the moment we entered, we were disappointed. The host was extremely rude and commented how he had to work so very hard the evening before (Valentine's Day) which is the reason we cancelled and changed our reservations to the next day. We had a 7 pm reservation, however he seated others who came in after us before us including... More

We went to Farfalla and had a good dinner. The service was correct. The atmosphere was nice. We ordered a salad and a soup. My salad was really fresh, my husband's soup needed a ton of salt. We had the chicken farfalla and the special lobster ravioli. They were good dishes but nothing amazing. We shared the tartuffo for dessert,... More

My wife and I have eaten at Ristorante Farfalla numerous times over the past 10 years and have always been impressed with both the food and the service. The chef-owner, Michael Fatteh, is a magician in the kitchen. If you are in south Florida for any reason, don't miss having dinner at Farfalla.

the service was excellent, table setting was perfect, food was tasty, the only suggestion is the atmosphere, music maybe? it just seemed dull and too quiet. It is pricey but worth it especially for a special occasion which i am sure they will help you celebrate
