“Great Pizza”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

We always try to hit the artisanal pizza joints in the cities we visit. They are popping up everywhere and are usually excellent. Farina is no exception! A nice atmosphere. Service was quick and friendly. We had the salsiccia which looked so good at the table next to us. Great! Tables are close so easy to converse with people on both sides. Nice when you are traveling and they tell you whats good. Speaking of, both sides recommended the butterscotch desert. TO DIE FOR. don't avoid it for any reason

“Wonderful pizza - from a Chicago persective”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

We read about Farina on Tripadvisor and decided to eat there after checking out their menu online. We started with their antipasto platter. One of the best antipasto presentations we've ever encountered. Several types of peppers, roasted and fresh, roasted artichoke hearts, many varieties of olives, two types of cheese including homemade fesh mozz. And of course salami, mortadella and prociutto with grilled homemade bread. Simply wonderful.

We then split a fungi pizza and we added fresh garlic. Their thin crust was great. The sauteed mushrooms, herbs and at least three kinds of cheese were delicious together.

For us, it was an unexpected pleasure on a Tuesday night. We stopped in at 5:30 and were glad we did. It got real busy by 6PM. It has lots of communal seating but that didn't detract from our meal.

This was a real treat.

“Three meals over four days in Albuquerque”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

. . . and this place never disappointed. Simple but hugely flavorful food prepared beautifully and priced well and reasonably. Service was consistently very good but the stand-out every time was the owner (?)/manager (?) who was always gracious, quick with a smile, and attentive to the comfort of those waiting for tables (never a long wait). If only we had Farina back in NYC!

“Great gluten free pizza”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

You have to wait a little longer for the gluten free foods and I think they're a little more pricey but they're quite good. I am going back for more. Their wine and beer selection is good. It's a little noisy so not a great place for a meeting.

“Great pizza ”
Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

We normally don't choose pizza for a date, but we heard good things about Farina and it delivered. The salad was different, but in a good way. The pizza was amazing as well. It's a must downtown!
