Now celebrating our 30th Anniversary, Il Farro Restaurant sits in the heart of the Newport Beach Peninsula, right by the Newport Pear. Its authentic European vibe has attracted a vast clientele of locals and tourists for twenty five years and has made Il Farro one of the most unique and divine spots of Southern Italian specialties. Its cozy Italian atmosphere and its family-oriented service give our customers one of the best Italian experiences in all Orange County.


You can either sit out in the patio enjoying the ocean breeze or come inside to enjoy our warmly decorated dining room. Our dining room is decorated in a rustic Italian style and shares a mix of a classic yet romantic atmosphere perfect for any kind of special occasion.

Whether you are seeking a romantic table for two or a perfect place to celebrate a special moment with your family and friends, Il Farro has what it takes to transform your evening into a memorable occasion.
