Very good wine list, knowledgable staff, excellent menu and a chef that's been there awhile! Attentive waiters, one super mirror (in case you love yourself), and an unusually great painting on the way to the rest room. Plenty of parking, comfy ambiance, no rap music....More

We are relatively new to South Fort Myers and we're looking for a non chain Italian restaurant. We arrived early and there was only one other table with guests. We did have reservations and the hostess asked. I thought you're kidding me right? That was...More

What a find! My wife and I were pleasantly surprised. Authentic Italian food that was prepared by the chef/owner in magnificent fashion. The menu had multiple options for homemade meals, tremendous specials and everything is made from scratch. We felt as though we were back...More

We arrived here at 5:00 PM, just as the restaurant was opening. (We'd walked INTO and OUT of a restaurant with huge lines, long waits, LOUD music, plenty of noise!) Farfalla was the exact opposite: a classy, quiet, serene oasis! The restaurant was empty as...More

The reviews were right. This is a very nice Italian restaurant. What's surprising is it's located in a strip mall. Once you walk inside, you'll be pleasantly surprised by the decor. We liked it so much, we came back the next night as there were...More

This is a great Italian restaurant in terms of food, but the service and attitude of the waiter was terrible. There were six of us and we love to go out to eat. Price is never a problem when it is worth it. When we...More

Excellent meal, all very fresh, cooked to order, cooking area visible. Seated quickly but should have reservations on weekend. Only wine (excellent choices) and beer, no mixed drinks. Any special requests with food choices or preparation honored. Presentation was very appealing.

Farfalle is wonderful! We enjoyed the Calamari Fritti appetizer which was tender and the Pomodoro sauce was absolutely delicious. It may be one of the best I've had with a nice combination of garlic and basil spices. The Spiedini Alla Romana was good but the...More

Dinner with wife, daughter, and grandchildren, ages 14 and 9. A last minute choice but a good one. Professional service, nicely decorated. Upscale for this area but with it. No hard spirits but large wine list. Appetizers all good. Caprese salad, mussels, risotto nicely prepared...More
