Dining room is lovely, staff is very friendly and efficient. Food came out quickly enough but was mediocre. Not terrible but my Aranccini was kinda burnt and tasted like the fryer oil was a little too old. My friends pizza had very little flavor and she added tobacco to try and rescue it. No one else really mentioned anything other... More

Farina Restorante is still a nice quiet place to go to for special dinners. The staff are very tentative and professional. There were however a couple things that surprised us. When we arrived the water glasses were already filled and sitting on the table. The olive oil and balsamic vinegar was already on the plate for bread dipping. Call me... More

This isn't East Side Marios folks. This is real deal homemade Italian fare. I had seriously one of the best meals ever here. The wait staff is just amazing.

I've been here a few times with my family and the food is delicious every single time! I cannot say enough good things about Farinas! It's a nice change from all the bad restaurants in North Bay. Everything on the menu is fantastic and the customer service is very friendly.

We had breakfast a couple of times in the restaurant. I wish there was a better choice but the servings are adequate and the food is tasty. The waitress does come back often to fill up your coffee. Dinner menu choices are amazing and I recommend the mushroom stuffed ravioli smothered in a thick wine sauce--almost too delicious for words.... More

Server was great. Soup and calmari salty. Meatball pizza okay, nothing outstanding in flavour or texture. Total bill shocking. Disappointingly small proportion of oil to balsamic vinegar for dipping bread so bland overall. Discouraged with operating hours for hotel venue as it was not opened early or late for business needs. Room service has fee so better to pick up.... More

A night out for dinner and you want homemade pasta - try Farina! The service is excellent and the food was very very good. The mushroom ravioli is wonderful. Great dipping bread, cesar salad and all pasta is quite good.

Great Italian food, good service at a moderate price. Limited seating so make reservations on peak nights, parking at the door.
