Il Farro

As a teenager in the farm village of Calabria, Italy, Domenico Maurici helped his family grow farro, a rare grain. After graduating from Italy's Culinary Institute, Domenico went on a cruise of the Pacific Coast and fell in love with Orange County; he selected it as the place where he would open his own restaurant centered on the grain he had grown up with.

At Il Farro, Domenico transforms farro into pastas and risottos, which he uses to build specialty dishes such as the farrotto con salsiccia with Italian-style sausage and pecorino cheese. The menu also includes pizzas layered with prosciutto. There are also seafood creations such as linguini pescatore with New Zealand mussels, manila clams, calamari, and king crab.

Customer Reviews

Very fun, friendly atmosphere where it is obviously a locals restaurant, but wonderful to new patrons. Food was great and quick!

Make a reservation....they are busy. My first visit was the other evening. The aroma wafts out to the sidewalk from an open door drawing you in. Oh yes, this is where I want to be. It is a small family owned business. The food is an amazing flavor and taste experience. Italian cuisine at it's best. The pricing is more than reasonable and the portions are generous. You are greeted at the door by the owner, who will also seat you. He also walks from table to table to say hello and ask how your meal is. Personal attention, from owner and servers make you feel almost like family. I am certain that I will return many more times and refer my friends. I would give this 5+ stars!
