Caesar salad was browned lettuce - followed by cold pasta - waitress was inattentive. The fact that it was pretty empty should have been our first clue.

My wife and I were visiting Newport Beach and the Coastal area and some friends recommended Il Farro as a great place to get Italian food. We found a parking spot (not always easy) and both the restaurant and the beach. Wonderful food and great...More

I would give zero stars if possible. Was served wrong salad and corrected one had old, brown lettuce. After 30 minutes so called "fresh" pasta arrived room temperature. We walked out. Would never go back. Rude service, poor food.

The Farro dishes were great. Great service. Outside seating is great except for the aggressive homeless and drunk people walking by disturbing customers.

My wife, I, and two toddlers decided to eat here our first night in Newport Beach. No reservation, walked right in, was immediately greeted and allowed to seat ourselves and pick a table. With two jet-lagged toddlers at dinner time, we chose a booth, and...More

Thought I would step out of my comfort zone of one of the tuna species. Decided to try their Vitello Marsala made with veal scallopini sauteed with Marsala wine, garlic, mushrooms, and capers sauce. Very pleased with the quiet environment in the Newport Beach community....More

Short walk from the Newport Beach Hotel. Reasonably priced for good Italian food & service not to mention big portions. Would definitely recommend & bring an appetite!

The photo on their website of the Cioppino looked so good but unfortunately it did not taste good at all. The muscles (green and black) were mushy and smelled too strongly fishy. I could not eat them. The rest of the seafood in the dish...More

Description
Authentic Italian dishes focused on taste and quality, accompanied by the freshest signature cocktails and wine. Enjoy a romantic walk on the beach, watching the sunset, followed by a delicious casual meal at Il Farro, named for the hearty and delicious whole grain, farro, used in many coastal Italian dishes. We import ours directly from Italy, where it is farmed organically, low carb, low gluten, high in fiber and, best of all, tastes AMAZING! We also feature fabulous seafood dishes (we are steps from the ocean, after all) with halibut, salmon, mussels, clams, shrimp, calamari and more. Other dishes include steak, veal and chicken-enjoy with a specialty cocktail from our full bar, or a robust glass of wine. Finish your meal with one of our homemade desserts from tiramisu and gelato. Established in 1993 Il Farro Restaurant sits in the heart of the Newport Beach Peninsula, right by the Newport Pier. Its authentic European vibe has attracted a vast clientele of locals and tourists
