"My husband and I split the Sunday Gravy dinner...it was scrumptious! We enjoyed the oversized meatball, the sausage and the short ribs with marinara sauce and instead of rigatoni, we selected spaghetti. The mixed greens salad we also split- fresher than fresh with delicious cheese and a bit of lemon flavor...perfect. We will be back soon! Great service and great food."

"A neighborhood find--good menu, offering of "half portions," reasonable prices, excellent service, festive location in Lafayette village. Some of the comments- "beautifully flavored dishes," "as good as it gets" for Italian food in the area."

"The wood fired pizza oven always produces an excellent pizza. Pastas are fresh and the daily special is always a winner. You can be dressed very casually and feel comfortable at this great neighborhood Italian gem. Parking can be a bit tricky in Lafayette village, but it is worth the hassle."

"We always enjoyed Easter Brunch at Paparazzi and thought we as well as Farina. Big mistake.
The food, other than the pasta, was cold, tasteless, with limited selection on the buffet... including the deserts. It is unlikely we would consider going back again for brunch, and certainly would not recommend it.

"Food was wonderful as was the service. Attentive, friendly, but not intrusive. Great wine selection too! Restaurant was lively, but that should be expected anywhere busy.
Dined inside but hoping to sit on the patio next visit and enjoy the weather.
Will definitely go back and recommend to friends. A welcome addition to North Raleigh!"

"This was our 2nd visit. I'm not going to go in to a great deal of detail, The food was good, nothing spectacular. First Italian restaurant we've been to where you have to pay for a basket of bread for your table. They state that it is from a local bakery, but who cares, I've had some absolutely wonderful bread at other restaurants served free. Only limited bottle beer selections and I was informed that they could not serve Riesling by the glass. Again, unusual. Ugh. To quick our server disappeared once order was taken. We had to request fresh parmesean for our dishes, had to request our water glasses be refilled, that another drink order could be taken. Had to hunt our server down for our check. Gave up the idea of dessert, even though we weren't even asked. We managed to stop the manager who was floating around the room and told him of our disappointment with our server, he pretty much could of cared less. Simply told us he was new and he had overloaded him with tables this evening. It should be noted this restaurant is in a VERY popular weekend dining area with 2 other restaurants next door. There were many many tables available at 7:00-8:00 which is unheard of for a Saturday evening. We will absolutely not be back."

"Italian is not at the top of my list for restaurants. Farina has changed this! Awesome neighborhood feel and great food, with consistently excellent service. Affordable such that dining here possible often."

"We held off checking out Farina for a year or so after its opening due to some inconsistent reviews, but we're glad we checked it out when we did. It seems to have found its stride, and is definitely a great spot in the Lafayette Village development. Really cool space inside, obviously kid-friendly given where it is located (for the most part), and a really nice menu. Now I'm beyond a pizza snob, as I'm an aspiring pizza chef myself, but I was mostly pleased with the pizzas they were churning out. The star of the show though was definitely the steamed clam appetizer. WOW. Absolutely delicious and very true to form for what I'd expect at a French or Italian restaurant. Mouth watering stuff. It's worth a trip to Farina just for them imo.
But overall we'll be back. Cool spot."

"I live near Lafayette Village and Farina is always on the list of restaurants that everyone in my family likes. The menu has something for everyone. Brick oven pizzas are some of the best around. Pasta dishes are great and the daily special is always tempting."

"I have heard about this place from a friend and finally had the opportunity to try it out. We tried to go on Valentines Day but unfortunately they had no room. We then went on the 15th. It was a very sparse crowd as we had snow earlier in the day. There were 4 other groups there, so it was pretty quiet. I could see it being loud if the place was full of people.
We started out with the Bruschetta which was very good. I ended up ordering the Chicken Parm and my wife ordered the ravioli. Both were extremely good and the portion sizes were generous.
Everything was very reasonably priced and I could see us coming here quite often . Large wine list as well."

"There are a few things I miss from the previous restaurant (Papparazzi). Bread & olive oil dipping used to be complimentary. The entrees were good, but a bit salty. Our experience was good, not great."
