We were dead tired and ready for a no fuss drink and dinner when we hit Farina (recommended by a business friend). He didn't steer us wrong...great draft beers, good pizza and delish pasta. I loved the oatmeal stout on draft, nutty, dark and well drawn. My pasta had a creamy tomato sauce, tiny bits of bacon, tender veggies and... More

Really good pizza and salad. They use quality ingredients and you can taste that. There are lots of vegetarian options. The atmosphere is quite noisy -we did not enjoy that too much though we did get used to it after 15 mins. The staff was knowledgeable and good. It is a bit pricy but the quality justifies that .

Great Italian restaurant. Best pizza we have had in a long time! Tiramisu and Brownie Sundae were to die for! Very friendly service!

While visiting Albuquerque, my wife and I stumbled across this restaurant located in a small building just outside of downtown. It was very crowded which was a food sign. We ordered our usual caprese salad and a marguerita pizza. The caprese was excellent! The mozzarella was definitely homemade and it was served with four large slices of garlic toast. The... More

Do yourself a favor and get the dipping sauce. And the goat cheese and leek pizza was amazing. I love a thin crust and they know how to do it.

Limited selection. Very gourmet pizza. Thin crust is very good. Salad was good. Cool location in an old building.

We arrived at a busy time on a Saturday night and were offered a less than desirable table to have an instant seat. It was right next to server station and had lots of traffic, and right next to a wall where I kept hitting my head. The man seating us was honest about it being in a weird spot... More

We were intending to go to the artichoke cafe, but their menu had changed from what was on line and did not appeal to us. It was a rainy night and we were not looking forward to finding another restaurant. The attendant in the parking lot suggested that we go to Farina. It was very crowded and you sort of... More

This is the best pizza in Albuqueruqe. Incredible menu, great prices and wonderful staff. I've been going for years and don't plan on stopping.
