Experienced a great Italian meal here tonight. However a warning to guests to check your bill. We had an extra item added to ours. Maybe a human error but still just to keep you on your toes. Great food and service. Enjoy Robbyna from Sweden

My friend and I stopped in for a light lunch while visiting Newport Beach. They made me a delicious Italian soda and we had some delicious appetizers. Great service, lovely outdoor seating, and our waiter was friendly and attentive. Would eat here again.

We enjoyed a lunch at Il Farro today. My husband ordered one of the special dishes of the restaurant -- spinach & cheese ravioli with asparagus and saffron cream sauce. The ravioli are made in house every morning. The ravioli pasta was so thin and delicate but yet were generously filled. There was just the right amount of asparagus and... More

The meal was very good and the service excellent. We had 6 different meals and we shared tastes of each. The seafood ravioli was excellent and the best of all! Get there early and on time for a reservation as it is packed and they will not seat you until everyone is there. Parking is an issue, especially on weekends!

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
