We had a large group of 11 at a table out the back towards the kitchen.

Service really was quite slow. It was probably around and hour before we received any food so we were starving. We had to remind them a couple of times for the drinks which appear to have been forgotten.

The pizza’s are huge with quality ingredients. The other dishes were also quality ingredients.
The entrees were very substantial portions.

Desserts looked amazing (I was too full from my pizza) and I love dessert so will have to go back!

I don’t drink coffee, some were ordered and smelt devine and came served in gorgeous little cups.

I would recommend based on the food but dont go if you are in a rush or have somewhere to be afterwards or you may be dissapointed.

We came (16 of us) for a birthday dinner and had a fabulous time. The service was friendly and knowledgeable and the food was sublime! The restaurant was busy and a bit chaotic but that added to the experience and didn't affect the service. It was great to peek into the kitchen and see the chefs making the stuffed pasta parcels for the following night. Such skill!

Yes, it is a little pricey but it is outstanding, authentic Italian food done very well and that isn't cheap to produce. All in all a great night and we will definitely be back.

We booked a table at Farina for 7pm, and arrived a few minutes later whereon we were asked to wait at the bar until our table was ready. We were still waiting more than half an hour later and, on asking why there was a hold up were told the people were just finishing up!! Not good enough, they'd be laughed out of town most other cities if they pulled that one. We were then shown to our table which ended up being part of a long table where we shared with others, so not off to a good start. Service was pretty good, and food also, however we won't be back and will tell others if they want a good experience for dinner, Farina won't provide it.

We greatly enjoyed our dinner at farina Italian! The service was excellent and friendly, and the food was tasty and good value.
We had clam spaghetti and lasagne and enjoyed them both.
Would recommend eating here to families and friends, quite small so probably not large groups.
Thankyou for a lovely evening!
