This is a simple home style restaurant with reasonable prices. Meals include soup, salad, meal, drink and dessert. Atmosphere is very casual, frequented by working locals with very adequate service

We went back for Mother's Day brunch and it was excellent. The place was extremely busy but the service and food were great. We had a party of four and there were no complaints. Farnesi's has become our favorite go to restaurant in Chowchilla.
