We were there with a group of about 10 people, while we were not able to all be accommodated at the same table (If we called ahead probably could have been) we were able to set near enough to converse. I would say the evening we were there was a fairly busy night, and the service was great! Glasses were... More

Stopped by for a light lunch. We shared a marvelous antipasto platter and each had a glass of wine. Small, intimate place with simple but intriguing decor. Sat at the bar and our server, Jeremy, was efficient but not really friendly. They have a list of Reserva wines by the bottle ranging from $50-200. I believe they are in partnership... More

A variety of thin-crusted nicely charred pizzas, with daily specials. Also daily special salads that were excellent during two visits. Six local beers on tap, plus a wide selection of bottled brews. Good wine selection too. Excellent service. High level of energy / noise, but not to annoying degrees.

I only had the Verde salad and a beer at the bar, but this was the best meal I ate in ABQ, and I tried The Groove and Artichoke Cafe on the same block, too, while I was in town for a week. The bar was busy with people eating because the restaurant isn't very big. One of the young... More

My husband and I recently ate here and I would recommend it to anyone who finds themselves in Albuquerque. The food was tops and the service superb. We ordered the sautéed mushrooms and the specialty pizza of the day. One pizza was enough for the two of us.

We had anti pasti followed by pizza and spaghetti meatballs. Delicious, fresh food and very authentic Italian. Staff were attentive and friendly. Lovely atmosphere on the terrace. Pizzas are huge though, worth sharing or getting half. Would strongly recommend.

Everything was great. From the antipasti to dessert. Hands down the best pizza I have had outside Italy. A little pricey for pizza but well worth it.

We have loved Farina from the moment it opened in Albuquerque, lending a very hip urban vibe to the dining scene, and offering terrific artisanal pizza and a really nice selection of wines by the glass. Occasionally we call for takeout, and go pick up a pizza and a salad to share, as we did last night. The pizza (melanzana... More

Best thin crust pizza, pasta, wine and beer in town in an environment that both hip and relaxing. A little NY with a dash of San Francisco.

The pizza was excellent. Very unusual topping choices, which I like. The crust was delicious as it was thin and not too heavy. The tirimisu was probably the best I ever had. Tables were close together, not a lot of seating but the decor was hip and trendy. The service was good too. We made a great choice by eating... More
