There were eight of us for a family birthday and it started badly and ended the same way. To be fair, they allowed too many people in fir the number of new staff working that evening. Took about an hour for them to take the order. Ran out of garlic bread and pizza bases but didn't notify us at time... More

Had visited the old farina on the Downs a few times and had affection for the place. Tried the new restaurant today, we were seated upstairs (understandable as at lunchtime they want people to see there are customers in there) the problem was the room is pretty cool, and on a cold day I wanted it a bit more warm...

Farina has relocated in Altrincham so we thought we would give it a go (haven't been for years since it was on The Downs). This is a medium sized restaurant and there seemed to be plenty of staff (though most didn't seem sure what they should be doing). I truly hope our experience was a one-off due to the claimed...

First time at Farina but definately won't be my last. To be honest, we only went in cos it was the nearest to our house and it was raining. Upon entering, we were made to feel really welcome and our drinks brought right away. The wine was really nice (house red) and a good price too. I loved the mussels... More

This restaurant is situated just after the railway bridge between Tesco and HSBC. It has only been open for a little while, but deserves to do well. The food was very good with large portions and the waiter was welcoming, attentive and helpful without being "pushy". I had the Vitello Monte Bianco (veal with mushrooms, mozzarella and asparagus) which was... More

We loved this place before (at Downs and then Goose Green) the move to between the interchange and tesco metro and its nice to know the food and service are still the same, in this new place, Fantastic! Pizza and pasta are tasty/fresh and service attentive. Recommended.

We were given a warm welcome on a cold Friday evening around 7.30 and were taken downstairs to join several other diners enjoying their meal. Ignore the fact that no one seems to be dining upstairs as it makes it appear that it is not a very popular restaurant, Contrary, everyone chooses to dine downstairs which has a lovely ambience...

Decided to try this newly opened restaurant and it didn't disappoint. Very friendly and attentive staff. Large portions of starters and main courses. Usual Italian fare but nicely presented and we were allowed to put as much Parmesan on our food as we wished. Reasonably priced food and wine and a cosy, intimate setting. Well worth a visit. I am...

Chose the restaurant on passing. What a find! The garlic bread starter was amazing. The pork fillet and calzone were both spot on. We would highly recommend this place.

We had a great 21st birthday party for our son in the restaurant - 37 people - and the evening was a great success. The new owners called us in advance and made sure everything was in order. On the night it was all great - food, service and atmosphere. Despite the numbers we all got served on time and... More
