Arrived mid afternoon Wednesday as were greeted and shown a table. Atmosphere is eclectic and yet quiet enough to have nice conversation. Food was excellent which included salad and pizzas. Plenty to share amongst the four of us. Bill was moderate and service was superb.

If you want the best gourmet pizza in the state, you will have to visit Farina in Abq. Everything they do is above and beyond exceptional. From their selection of craft beer (local and regional) to their wide-ranging salad and pizza variations, this fine establishment nails it! The service and vibe equals the service and quality of food. I've never... More

We went to the restaurant on a Saturday night. It was busy but the many small tables allowed us to be seated immediately. The pizza selection was amazing and diverse. We chose two pizzas. The first was a fungi pizza that had a great complement of spice, cheese and fresh mushrooms. The second was the bianca which had feta, truffle... More

We went to Farina with our adult daughter, arriving around 5:30 on a weeknight for an early dinner. The restaurant has rows and rows of small tables where you are elbow to elbow with strangers, and a couple of tables in the window area. I asked for a window table, and was told that you had to have a group... More

The pizza here is the best pizza I have ever had - and I'm a New Yorker. I had a small pizza half carne and half fennel sausage. The meats on the carne were absolutely delicious. The fennel sausage was also very tasty. The overall pizza was cooked perfectly in their high temp oven. I read the reviews going in,... More

We're originally from Jersey, and yes, we know pizza. If you want outstanding pizza, try this place on Central Ave. Very nice urban vibe to this place too. Forget Il Vicino. Also had the soups several times and they're excellent. Very good wines and certain nights select bottles are half price. Love this place. Wish there was one in my... More

This is an excellent small restaurant. The pizza is about the closest to the pizza you get in Rome that I have had in the USA. I thoroughly enjoyed the Margherita I ordered, and you can get a nice cold Peroni here, too. The desserts are also good. The service is attentive and expert. The only fault I noticed is... More

Probably the best NYC style pizza that I have had in New Mexico. They have managed to get the crust just perfect. Burnt just right. When I am in Albuquerque this is where I go for pizza. Not easy to find good pizza at this altitude.

Just a couple of blocks from our lodging we decided to take a walk and find a place where we could have a light dinner. Crowded with a good vibe, we walked into Farina and knew instantly that we were going to enjoy our meal. Attentive wait staff, despite the noise level and crowd, we ordered a mixed vegetable salad...
