I lunch here regularly when in the area. It's a very high quality Italian restaurant that never disappoints. I usually get the chicken sandwich con olivo which comes on flatbread with a Caesar salad, but have had the pizzas and pasta before, which are excellent as well. There are regular specials and good wine by the glass. The service is... More

This was my second time eating at Farfalla; I made a point of going again because last year's visit was so enjoyable. The atmosphere is cozy and welcoming and the food is superb. (I highly recommend the smoked salmon pasta dish.) Service is good with friendly waitstaff. I will make a point of dining here whenever I am in LA.

A nice family Italian restaurant with large menu and neighborhood feel. Very informal (kids certainly welcome) with reasonably large menu and wine list. Prices are modest by LA standards. The food was quite OK -- not what I would term memorable, but reasonable value for the price. My dinner companions agreed. I'd return for a pleasant, modestly priced meal in... More

Farfalla has been serving up some of the best Italian in the city for decades. Their olive oil alone is worth the trip. They have an extensive wine list and always have great selections by the glass. Their homemade pasta is terrific, but their fish and steaks are top notch as well. Go!

So it was my wife's birthday and she really, really wanted chicken picatta and I really wanted to make sure she got it. We'd invited all of our kids and some of their friends--party of 12. We called around to several Italian restaurants on the near north side of LA and asked the kids and this one got the most... More

Before moving to Memphis, I lived in Los Feliz and found this place randomly. I became a regular...the food was bomb, and the prices not unreasonable. More importantly, for me, was that the owner and the head server actually got to know me and were super nice. I have lived away for four years, and still go there every time... More

Farfalla is a well know Italian restaurant owned and operated by a Brazilian. We have dinned here a few times.... But it seems time has caught up with Farfallas. On our latest visit with our family, we started with Calamari and Carpaccio di Manzo. The Calamari was good as usual as was the Carpaccio. But the size of the Carpaccio... More

The decor fits for many occasions. Wood tables without tableclothes, large mirrors, cloth napkins. I had the Fusilli Tartufati con Carciofi Porri e Shiitake which was delicious. The pasta was really good, cooked perfectly and the mushrooms and other vegetables were really tasty. The portions were rather large but I still finished all of mine! I had a few bites... More
