A little noisy and crowded like a big city place but sooo good. Best pizza around...try the chopped salad.
Excellent wood-fired pizza! The pizza was full of flavor, fun topping combinations as well, and great service. It's a busy place with only 20 tables or so, so you may have to wait, but its worth it. The bar also has some great local beers, and a good beer selection. Spinach salad was a great start to the pizza.
The pizza is fantastic! I have tried many of the pizzas and salads but my favorites are the classic "margherita" and the "formaggio di capra". The dough is never soggy (sometimes a little charred). The flavors are great! They also have a daily special menu that has new dishes to try out, you can't go wrong with trying those either!
Farina has 2 locations and one is within 5 minutes of our house. It's all I can do to keep driving home and pass it without stopping. The food is excellent; from the stacked eggplant ptarmigan to their fresh salads. Love their antipasti and especilly the batter fried artichokes. The pizzas are perfectly constructed and unusual; we enjoy the formaggio... More
Maybe this use to be the place folks went to for pizza but the competition has picked up here in the last year and there are better place to hit in ABQ. Service was OK and the pizza was burnt and hard. Too noisy as well. Places like Firenza and Amore have raised the bar for pizza in ABQ.
I've been here before for dinner with a younger foodie friend, and went back again. See, I make my own pizza almost weekly--in the colder months, and I am a picky pizza eater. I love Farina's thin and crispy crust. Their toppings are always fresh--the funghi/mushroom pizza was great; this time I tried the pepe caldo which includes broccollini, hot... More
We always try to hit the artisanal pizza joints in the cities we visit. They are popping up everywhere and are usually excellent. Farina is no exception! A nice atmosphere. Service was quick and friendly. We had the salsiccia which looked so good at the table next to us. Great! Tables are close so easy to converse with people on... More
We read about Farina on Tripadvisor and decided to eat there after checking out their menu online. We started with their antipasto platter. One of the best antipasto presentations we've ever encountered. Several types of peppers, roasted and fresh, roasted artichoke hearts, many varieties of olives, two types of cheese including homemade fesh mozz. And of course salami, mortadella and... More
. . . and this place never disappointed. Simple but hugely flavorful food prepared beautifully and priced well and reasonably. Service was consistently very good but the stand-out every time was the owner (?)/manager (?) who was always gracious, quick with a smile, and attentive to the comfort of those waiting for tables (never a long wait). If only we... More
