We enjoyed lunch so much that we took our friends for dinner.
Beautiful pasta, pizza and loved the salads. Very busy on the Saturday we visited however fast service with a smile. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone craving for Italian. It seemed better food than our visit in Italy (although more expensive here!!)

Headed to Farina for lunch on a rainy horrible day and it was worth the effort! Greeted by an extremely friendly gentleman and seated immediately. Everything on the menu sounded amazing, we shared aracini, croquettes and salt n pepper calamari for starters and each one was delicious and tasty, possibly best aracini I've had! Had ravioli for main, beef was the meat of the day and I couldn't get enough, cooked to perfection and accompanying sauce was to die for, I wanted to lick the bowl clean! Panna cotta for dessert was super smooth and creamy I also had takeaway lemon tart which was amazing. Seriously can't wait to go back. Service, food and settings all of the highest standard!!

Fantastic pastas and the tirami su was fantastic - even though it could do with some marsala. Really enjoyed the cooking.

I don't care much for the decor - especially the shared tables. Makes it feel like a communal dining area at a campsite. The restaurant was cold.

Service was good and friendly.

Have been here a few times now. Everything is absolutely delicious. My goal to try everything at least once on the menu. It is that good
