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

Two families went for lunch after spending the morning on the beach. The service was excellent and lots of kid and gluten free options. Pata was homemade.

We made a reservation (week night). Don't think we needed it but the restaurant was busy & I'm sure in the summer you would need one. My spouse & I split 2 entrees, a crab/lobster ravioli and halibut. With the halibut we ordered vegetables as...More

They have a standard Italian menu, with the twist of specializing in faro grains. The dishes were all well prepared and tasty. Good for families.

Great food, great service, and great location. Staff were really friendly. Nice little courtyard outside to sit in, and good inside area. No views though.

Authentic Italian dishes focused on taste and quality, accompanied by the freshest signature cocktails and wine. Enjoy a romantic walk on the beach, watching the sunset, followed by a delicious casual meal at Il Farro, named for the hearty and delicious whole grain, farro, used in many coastal Italian dishes. We import ours directly from Italy, where it is farmed organically, low carb, low gluten, high in fiber and, best of all, tastes AMAZING! We also feature fabulous seafood dishes (we are steps from the ocean, after all) with halibut, salmon, mussels, clams, shrimp, calamari and more. Other dishes include steak, veal and chicken-enjoy with a specialty cocktail from our full bar, or a robust glass of wine. Finish your meal with one of our homemade desserts from tiramisu and gelato. Established in 1993 Il Farro Restaurant sits in the heart of the Newport Beach Peninsula, right by the Newport Pier. Its authentic European vibe has attracted a vast clientele of locals and tourists
