Farfalla has become a pretty regular stop for my wife and I. It is located in a very modern shopping center in Westlake Village, CA - an upscale area with many, many good restaurants. Farfalla is both good and reasonably priced.
Owned by the same people as Galetto Bar and Grille nearby, Farfalla is a casual place with an upscale appearance. Indoors, there is a bar and some tables (including a large common table) near the front of the room, with booths in the back. it can get noisy on weekend evenings, but it is a very friendly crowd. There is covered outdoor seating as well, which is very nice.
Open for lunch and dinner, the food is Italian and Italian-influenced by California Cuisine. There are wonderful salads, great pastas and pizza (my favorite place for pizza in the area), and a variety of entrees with specials every evening. There are also have a "Mozzarella Bar" involving a large container that looks like a cheese wheel on a cart and looks entertaining, but which I have not tried.
The waiters are almost all from Italy and they tend to be very handsome. They are also very friendly and skilled.
There is an excellent wine list which is heavy toward Italian wines (including many that are hard to find) and, of course, California wines.
