So accommodating, a make it happen kind of restaurant, thanks to the very friendly and lively MICKEY. Get him if you can, he speaks, Italian, Spanish, English and has even taken on learning some sign. All because he wants to be the best he can be for customers and their experience.

We called ahead and made reservations as this Italian restaurant had good ratings. It is nestled in a busy location; park on the street instead of doing circles in parking lot. The manager/ owner got us seated quickly. The pizza was excellent, the atmosphere was calming, cheerful and friendly. Clean, homemade dishes, and a focus on healthy eating. Try it... More

After strolling Laguna Beach we and our cousins, who are local to Irvine, wanted something less pretentious for an early Saturday dinner than, say, a high end see-and-be-seen spot at Fashion Island. So we recalled this old favorite on the Newport peninsula. It was early 5:30, so a 6:00 pm table for four was easy. In fact, the place was... More

This place has a festive atmosphere, with good paintings of Italian scenes on the tables and the walls. The bread is fabulous! We each got salads and shared a pizza -- very good. We weren't too hungry, so we didn't try anything else, but other patrons seemed to really enjoy themselves.

We really enjoyed our visit to Il Farro. We were made to feel very welcome. The atmosphere is old style Italian and the food along the same lines although there are some more innovative dishes. 4 of us had a different dish and each was good. Great location close to the beach. Would certainly return.

Our party of seven were the first of the early dinner crowd, but sadly one of the last to be served. When our meals finally arrived an hour later only 6 of the 7 meals was served.
