Breakfast at Farina's is a no brainer! Excellent value for your food. The portion is big and the food was excellent. My favourite was the eggs benedict. Huge portion and cooked perfectly! By the way service was really good too!

It is a small quaint restaurant with great food and great prices. It is attached to a hotel so you can stay for the night go for a swim and enjoy the restaurant

A great night out started with a warm loaf of bread with olive oil/vinegar plate for dipping. Following by a few drinks and home made spaghetti and meatballs (the size of snowballs). Awesome dinner, excellent service. We will be back. Thanks - p.s. ask for table 71 for a romantic table in a small room for 2 or 4.

My mother and I went for dinner yesterday on the recommendation of an acquaintance. She had the Calamari and rapini dish, I tried the tasting menu for $34. First of all, it feels very isolating with the two sections being apart from the main dining room, our waitress was friendly enough but often neglected drink refills. When our appetizers arrived,...

Very expensive but consistent. I ordered a special gnocchi dish that was not edible. They substituted it for the mushroom ravioli. No discount or free dessert. The apple dessert was nasty and the ice cream looked like a Chinese egg.

We were in North Bay and were looking for a good place to eat. We were staying at the hotel BW and the restaurant had nice reviews. We tried it and were not disappointed. We both had pasta ( gnocchi and ravioli) and were very happy with our choices. The service was impeccable.
