Awesome service, great food

My wife and I went on a very busy weekend night. We had to wait a while to get seats but the staff was very polite and helpful. We were eventually seated at the bar but they way we were sat there were two single seats on either side of us. They asked us if we'd move down one to... read more

Difficult to get into on a Friday night, and horrendously loud, but totally worth it for their delectable pies.

The food here is always freshly made, and the location in NE Albuquerque has a number of really good menu items. The eggplant napoleon is a personal favorite of mine...bring a hearty appetite!

When traveling we always try to find the best pizza in a city for at least one nite. Wood fired always seems to be a kiss of flavor. Farina has become our favorite in Albuquerque. The salsiccia (with green chile of course) is wonderful. Great flavor with a little bite. It was so good we had one going thru Alb.... More

I have been eating pizza since I was eight years old. That's 65 years! I have eaten pizza all over the USA, Africa, and Europe. Farina serves the best pizza I have ever eaten. The crust is thin, the topping is generous without being overwhelming, and they serve all the beers I like. It is hard for me to see... More

What's NOT to love about Farina? Ok, it can sometimes be difficult to get in and parking may be an issue-it can be very busy, but go ahead and wait or try a week night. The salads are amazing with lots of variety. The pizzas are ALL perfect-crisp, thin crusts and quality ingredients. The deserts (affogatto among others) are special.... More

I have eaten here several times and they have great pizza! Sometimes you have to wait a bit and the tables are super close together so it's not always the most intimate dining experience BUT the pizza is great, they have a decent wine list, and the service is good.

Only two pasta options on the menu, the remainder are salads or pizza...but these are very tasty. Good beer and wine selection. Well priced.

We visit Farina often. The dining room at the Central location is small and usually packed, so be prepared to rub elbows with other customers. If your tolerance for having other people very close by is high, you'll get some of the best pizza in Albuquerque. They do have patio seating in warm weather. Farina makes thin crust, gourmet style... More

Excellent homemade pizza and six different local beers on tap. Nice atmosphere and even though they were packed on a Friday we only had to wait about 10 minutes for a couple of seats. Very friendly staff...would recommend to anyone visiting or living in the area.
