A great little restaurant with lovely helpful staff and everybody in my party enjoyed their meals! great food and service my only remark would be to lower the lighting a little and maybe a bit of music to give it a bit more of atmosphere

Visited with wife for Valentines Day. Booked Farina as too many restaurants have set menus on Valentines Day but Farina offers their standard menu plus specials. Service was excellent as was the food. Pasta Arrabiata was spicy but not too much so. Swordfish was really nice. Highly recommended

Returning from Yorkshire and needed to meet up with our son and booked Farina, from quite an assortment of venues, so we could have an Italian lunch together before a further two and a half hour journey home!! Most cheerfully greeted and looked after from then on! An extensive menu and the food was very good! Most certainly will make... More

Sadly, really disappointed. Went to Farina's when it was on the Downs and hoped for the same service and quality. We waited over an hour for our starters, we were sat at our table for 15 mins before anyone gave us a menu or took our drinks order, food was average.Starters were disappointing for the price, no bread offered. Mains... More

Great atmosphere! We order a couple of pizzas and they were awesome!! Really tasty and you can feel the authentic home-made italian cuisine. At the end of the evening we had a lovely conversation with our friendly waiter Martin with a complementary limoncello. We will recommend this place and looking forward to go again!

Good menu choice, decent food, quick service and friendly staff. This is a totally unpretentious and welcoming restaurant and we got our money's worth. Will return.

I met a friend for tea at Farina last night. My normal choice would have been Market Hall but thought that would be too busy for her. I'm so glad I did. The staff are warm and welcoming the surroundings are good tables set beautifully with linen napkins. Right from the off the service was great offered any choice of... More

I've eaten dinner here at least once a week since I first dined here around five weeks ago. The staff are welcoming and efficient & the food is just amazing - I've asked for all sorts of variations on the veggie dishes & they have delivered some fab food for me. I've eaten here instead of the restaurants in a... More
