“They deserve to be number 1 in Albuquerque - amazing food quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

With family living in Albuquerque, I've been to a number of restaurants in the area. This is a standout and are at the level of a good DC or London restaurant (thus my review title) The food was really good quality. We ordered the house salad - probably the best house salad at any restaurant I've been to. We also had pizzas, which is of course their mainstay and were tasty and creative. We also had a meatball appetizer - this was the best!. Flavoured with balsamic vinegar, it was different and delicious. Also tried the Spaghetti and meatballs and that was really good. So I don't think you can go wrong ordering there. One caution - if you need to have a conversation, probably choose another place since it was very loud in there.

“Not really that Great”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Our server should of gave us a heads-up on how big the pizzas were and ordered more than I can chew. She didn't seem to care less and didn't apologize. Pizza was ok, but nothing special. Just because you have good ratings doesnt mean you should stop caring about the customer. I think I'll look somewhere else where they think of the customer FIRST...

“Stylish and tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Great food and nice waitstaff. Pizzas are thin and crispy with fresh ingredients.
We ate here twice on a recent work trip and I would recommend it to anyone.

“Surprise on Nob Hill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Searched all over for a fun place in ABQ on Saint Paddy's Day and so glad we chose Farina. Go early, it's really a popular spot. We had pizza and spaghetti w/meatballs and they were terrific! Great service and reasonably priced.

“Great pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This place never disappoints! The Bianca pizza is my favorite. Save room for dessert the salted Carmel pudding is a great way to finish your meal.
