Have been to Farina Alto many times and have never been disappointed! While I recommend their pizza, other pasta dishes are also outstanding.

S, I have been here twice in the last two months. First on the weekend- had to wait about 25 minutes for a table for two, service was good and so was the food but nothing to get excited about. Second time was during the week, no wait, service was mediocre. The hostess was doing school work at the hostess... More

We eat at Farina Alto about once a month and we have found the food to be consistently good. The pizzas are served hot to order and the salads are fresh and crisp. Overall, the service is usually pretty solid. The restaurant can get very busy on Friday evenings but the staff seems to manage the backlog very well.

Wonderful upscale pizza pasta bistro with amazing salads. They use the freshest ingredients, local and organic where available. Our table had the Zappa di mussels with gluten free toast and the marinara was exquisite. The kale salad was delightful and perfectly dressed. The mushroom appetizer was delicately seasoned with white wine and herbs and the gluten free goat cheese, prosciutto... More

My spouse and I went here on a recommendation. The truffle fries were very good. We ordered a full chopped vegetable salad and the waiter suggested we get a half. We did and it was plenty. We ordered the full Formaggio di Capra pizza. We ate half of it. It had house cured pancetta made with local, grass-fed pork +... More

I just love this place, the food is delicious and the service is always on point. We often stop in for appetizers and a cold drink when running errands and this time we chose to partake in a half order of the Rigatoni Bolognese and a 1/2 order of Spaghetti & Meatballs for my love; both were delicious and of...

Awful customer service. After waiting over 50 min for a takeout pizza that was only supposed to take 15 min, the host helping me had nothing to say except "the kitchen was backed up". He also told me that my pizza would only be 3 more min, which turned into 20 min. The person helping me avoided me until my... More

I came here on a whim while (still) on my search for a good pizza, having had lousy experiences even at the places other people recommend. Though the pizza here is easily the best I've had... in Albuquerque... so far... I'm still not sure why it's worth the price I paid. Here's the thing: One tiny pizza that left me... More

I am gluten intolerant and the one thing I miss most is pizza and pasta. This restaurant has the best of both, my favorite is the meatballs and spaghetti. Great wine list and friendly wit staff makes this a pleasant dining experience.
