Stopped in for brunch on a Saturday. The restaurant has a great atmosphere, and is convenient to Old City and the river attractions. They have a great cocktail menu, which is half-price during brunch (11-2). The cocktails are pricey so it's a good deal. The food was outstanding. We had the baked brie with pesto to start. I had the... More

We had a large group following my granddaughter's high school graduation going for lunch. We'd never been there before bet were pleasantly surprised at the uniqueness of this restaurant. It is a farm-to-table establishment featuring fresh, local food. The variety of food on the menu was comprehensive with out being overpowering or intimidating. The server was knowledgable and helpful in... More

I had breakfast at Farmicia with my 3 sons on the wedding day of son number two. We were seated right away and had a cup of hot coffee immediately. The food was delicious and the wait staff pleasant and quick. Just around the corner from the Hotel Monaco, great place.

I made a reservation on Open Table for brunch at FARMICIA, I was taking my elderly aunt out, along with my daughter in law and her mom. When I made the reservation, I included a request for a table in a quiet spot, conducive to conversation since I know FARMICIA is very popular and very busy then. I was quite... More

We were in town for a weekend of sightseeing and chose Farmicia for dinner Saturday might because it was within walking distance of our hotel and looked good but not too fancy I could not take along two boys ages 7 and 9. The menu was innovative and true to its farm to table theme (plus they had a kids... More

Our hotel Concierge had advised that it was much preferable to walk to Penn's Landing rather than retrieving the car and driving! Much later, and very hot and weary, we were making our way back to the hotel, while detouring here and there on an appealing street. On one such street, we found ourselves in front of Farmicia which a... More

I've been wanting to dine here for quite some time and unfortunately was underwhelmed. My husband and I went for lunch, and the service was painfully slow. Our planned one hour lunch turned into two. The waitress was courteous enough, but often disappeared leaving us to look for her a few times. The lunch menu is decently priced for a... More
