My wife and I were visiting Newport Beach and the Coastal area and some friends recommended Il Farro as a great place to get Italian food. We found a parking spot (not always easy) and both the restaurant and the beach. Wonderful food and great...More

I would give zero stars if possible. Was served wrong salad and corrected one had old, brown lettuce. After 30 minutes so called "fresh" pasta arrived room temperature. We walked out. Would never go back. Rude service, poor food.

The Farro dishes were great. Great service. Outside seating is great except for the aggressive homeless and drunk people walking by disturbing customers.

Thought I would step out of my comfort zone of one of the tuna species. Decided to try their Vitello Marsala made with veal scallopini sauteed with Marsala wine, garlic, mushrooms, and capers sauce. Very pleased with the quiet environment in the Newport Beach community....More

Short walk from the Newport Beach Hotel. Reasonably priced for good Italian food & service not to mention big portions. Would definitely recommend & bring an appetite!

The photo on their website of the Cioppino looked so good but unfortunately it did not taste good at all. The muscles (green and black) were mushy and smelled too strongly fishy. I could not eat them. The rest of the seafood in the dish...More
