Truly a romantic ambiance with a touch of upscale elegance The menu selection and service are top notch. The dishes are made from scratch and they taste it. Waiters are not in your face but know when to show up.

Although this restaurant is in a Mall, it has a great deal of ambiance. I was surprised to read that some commentators criticized the restaurant for that reason. Once you enter, you feel as if you are in a five start restaurant. The waiters are dressed in starched press shirts and pants and the service is supreme. I ordered the... More

This is now my FAVORITE UPSCALE RESTAURANT in Estero.Ft. Myers! We have finally found a more formal setting in which to have romantic dinners (a challenge in this beach-oriented town where people think tank tops and shorts are appropriate for nicer restaurants). What a wonderful restaurant! Soft light, white linens, cream-colored décor, impeccably-dressed servers, and other like-minded diners who, like... More

I made the mistake of trying to order a side dish of pasta that was only available in full portion and was told the chef was very strict and did not appreciate special requests. To many Good Italian restaurants around not going back.

We have been meaning to go to this restaurant for a number of years. We heard it was pretty good so we finally gave it a try. It did not disappoint. The menu is extensive, the food was very good and the service excellent. We will not hesitate to go back again.

I may have already reviewed Ristorante Farfalla, but it definitely deserves more kudos for the wonderful food, lovely ambiance and excellent service. Everything they serve is prepared fresh upon ordering and the selection on the menu is extensive, but they offer additional nightly specials which are always divine. This is a restaurant you're return to again and again!

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.
