Carbonara sauce was a bit disappointing (thin?) and gnocchi didn’t have much actual gnocchi. Bolognaise was not bad. Monkfish was lovely. Main issue was the service was slow. They were really busy and there were some large tables but everyone seemed to be grumpy that...More

I don’t understand why this restaurant has a 4+ star rating? A tourist trap with tacky plastic checkered table cloths. We ordered the spaghetti bolognese and the penne al sugo - pasta sauce was extremely watery and flavor was absent. Food was slammed on the...More

Am not sure why Farelli’s is not in the top 10 restaurants in QT. We visit here whenever we are in town and they never miss a trick. This visit we had the amazing chilli prawn linguini, a very good pancetta Pizza and beautiful vegetarian...More

We booked in for dinner to get some pizza and pasta. We both went for pasta options (venison ravioli and the pappardelle) and both were super tasty. We ordered a side salad which we were a little disappointed with (bowl of lettuce with lemon dressing...More
