We were staying at the attached Best Western and thought we'd try the Farina take-out. My bride had a salad with grilled chicken which also had a dietary request that was accommodated with ease. I enjoyed the lasagna made with homemade pasta. It was a...treat and the portion size was huge. Considering the quality of our meals, the price was very reasonable. We also enjoyed breakfast in the restaurant the following morning. It also exceeded our expectations, offering extensive menu options at a very reasonable price. Covid-spaced tables, friendly staff and great food. What else can I say ?More

The lasagna was dry. The potatoes and sausages had very little meat. The server was good. The bread was good.

The wait is incredibly long, expect delays of at least 1 hour before any food hit’s the table. I order appetizer meatball and garlic bread cheese. Meatballs were cold, with marinara sauce in the plate that was very cold like. Owning out of the fridge,...the garlic bread was barely toasted with a light sprinkle of feta cheese. I ordered their specialty burger “mozzarella Burger”. It was delivered after a long wait and no specialty garlic mayonnaise in it. Avoid at all cost u less you like to be disappointed. If you are trying to loose weight, might be a good place. Please avoid.More

Ordered onion soup.....it had no broth in it due to bread in bowl had sucked it all out. Tammy the waitress took it back and brought me a fresh bowl. Couldn’t eat it as it wasn’t even lukewarm so I told her to skip it....Lasagna came next...big serving of it but all I could taste was tomato paste. Tammy brought the cannolis and they were very good. Loved the waitress....kind and funny.More

We enjoyed a great pickerel dinner x2, fish cooked perfectly & flavourful, one served with cheese risotto & veg, other red potatoe & veg, both meals delicious. Service also friendly, polite and helpful with questions. Been here twice when travelling and great both times.

I don't know why they keep sending people that wants to go eat in the restaur ant to the bar side maybe because the restaurants is the size of my garage I order a western sandwich nothing to drink $10.12 plus tip 13.12 they told...me that was the cheapest thing on the menu went to the bar for a couple beer the bill was $16 not including the tip that was for Coors Light In a Bottle now I know why the place was empty there should be there that place down and put a sport bar in there the place would be packMore
