I've had a handful of pasta dishes here, and everything has been pretty good. Pink sauce dishes have been the best and I would give those my top recommendation.

I had food delivered now several times. 5 out of 7 times the food is either cold or wrong. When i call about the wrong orders they basically tell you to screw yourself. Delivery time is always well over an hour

The food here was really good. The pizza was delicious, especially when cooked well done. Everything seemed very fresh, and it was definitely not an ordinary pizza-experience.

Farfalla is def the best delivery in the neighborhood. It's not cheap, but you can get an amazing pasta tre funghi delivered. And the apple tarte for dessert is also great.

Pros: Great Pizza

Cons: Salad is kinda weak

The food is good; not great. The prices steep; given the aforementioned. And the attitude a tad haughty. This is not a good bet for a first date, or romantic evening because you never know what you're going to face; from a lengthy wait to questionable service.

Farfalla is the perfect neighborhood Italian restaurant. Consistently good food and great service. Unlike other reviewers I've rarely had to wait for a table. In those instances, usually a weekend, I recommend walking down to Vinoteca

I tried this restaurant after hearing nothing but good things. You can imagine by surprise that the food was repulsive and the staff were incredibly rude. I don't know if they had an "off" night or what, but this place was disgusting! I

If you are looking for NON-AUTHENTIC Italian food, EAT HERE. Overpriced pasta dishes (they actually use BARILLA PASTA, no joke), aren't worth the wait nor the price, atmosphere is wanna-be family style and from the other reviews, there

I take everyone who visits me in LA to this place. The food is delicious, and the wine experts that I've taken there have praised their awesome wine selection. It has the feel of a neighborhood joint, but the food of a top notch place.

This has been my go-to date restaurant for as long as I've been dating, and it's also where I go with my girlfriends for girls' night out. I love the exposed brick walls -- very New York and fun. I get the same thing every time: Insalata

Having gone to the one on La Brea prior to this one I can say neither are faves of mine. The chicken picatta was bland and dry, the pastas I've had there have been very average. There's better Italian to be had.

Great atmosphere. Great food. Great service. Reasonably priced. And a star sighting to boot! (Jack Black hiding in the corner covering his face). And if my Italian boyfriend from Jersey says he'll definitely come back, then you know
