I've eaten at Farinas at least a dozen times over the last few years and it never fails to amaze. I usually make reservations but there's almost always a few tables available. The one time we had to wait for a table wasn't more than 15 minutes. The menu has something for everyone. Simple steak, chicken and seafood dishes combined... More

Great value for your dollar, room sevice menu is very vast with great selections, food arrives very hot with all the trimmings! All meals ordered and appetizers were all very generously portioned! I do not hesitate to recommend this restaurant as they make excellent steaks, chicken Parmesan, pastas, salads and more. Usually I find room service does not do good... More

I have been to Farina several times. It has a lovely ambiance, quiet, clean. The food is very good. Sizable portions. The food could rival any Italian home cooked meal. I find the pricing very reasonable for the quality & portion sizes. I would recommend this eatery in the top five in North Bay.

I've only been to Farina's a few times but I've been thoroughly impressed each time. Not being a huge fan of pasta I tend to only go to good pasta places a few times a year and Farina is one of those places. I highly recommend the mushroom pasta - it's delicious.

The food is delish! I have been numerous times for lunch on business and always have a great meal. When I went with my family, my 3 year old was well taken care of.

We came to North Bay for a surprise birthday party and stayed at the Best Western Conference Center. Above all they accommodated our dog the rooms are immaculate and we were not put in a room that was run down as we have come across in the past. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who has a pet.

We attended one of the hotels large corporate Christmas Parties, and the food for that, as well as all service was excellent! The next morning we met with some of our friends who stayed the night and had breakfast. It was great. Aline's service was excellent. Everyone's meal came out exactly as ordered and we were a table of 8.

I came here for dinner after a day-long conference, where the food offered was pretty good -- an encouraging sign. There are lots of nice things to say. Great offering of unique olives put on the table, which sure wake up the taste buds and make you feel welcomed -- surely a high priority in the hospitality business. I also... More

I had dinner here once while staying at the hotel, when colleagues were late arriving and I found myself on my own. I ordered onion soup to start, which was OK but nothing special (probably microwaved?) and spaghetti and meatballs (both good and plentiful). A glass of pinot noir was indifferent. The highlight of the meal was the small but... More
