This is my neighborhood restaurant - the food is always excellent and the owners and staff make you feel at home and comfortable. Have gone many many times and never have been disappointed. They have added something new since our last visit new dished although they are old dishes and look great. We noticed as soon as we walked to our table. Love them😄😋
Best Eggplant Parmesan we’ve ever had!
wonderful evening with great food and friendly efficient service.
Smaller menu with large portions of food. I’ll be honest and say the taste didn’t blow my socks off. Very average tasting Italian food. Our waitress was very low energy but a woman (who I believe is the owner) was very engaged and attentive. Ambiance is perfect for a date night.
Also, never been a fan of pulling into a restaurant’s parking lot to see the kitchen crew huddled around the back of the restaurant eyeing you down as you pull in. A bit uncomfortable.
My family and I had dinner at Il Faro for Father’s Day. The food is fantastic and the service is incredibly friendly, welcoming and accommodating. We just love this place.
With the menu changing every week there is always something new to try and every dish has been amazing!
Excellent eggplant parm. Owners extremely nice & attentive.
Wonderful meal with accommodating staff. A hidden gem!
Great! Food was awesome and atmosphere was splendid.
Amazing food and service! The calamari and baby kale is to die for!
Very warm, inviting and friendly. Great food and wine. Excellent service. Everyone was distanced and the whole place was very clean. We will go back.
This was our first time out in over a year because of Covid. What a perfect experience! Food, drinks and service were great.
Always love this place! Great food every time.
Great service and delicious meal
Perfect dining experience, like usual. Cocktails & food is always great.
Great food and service! A gem of a place!
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Albany for so many reasons. The food is always good, cocktails are interesting, and the people are the greatest. So welcoming and it feels like eating a cozy but elevated meal with your family. Such a hidden gem in Albany
This restaurant is always terrific. I have never been there when it’s not. The owner is wonderful and the wait staff is friendly and attentive. So good!
All the mixers that go into the cocktails are home made and fresh, very refreshing. The best home made mozzerella sticks any where. All the food is wonderful.
The best even during these difficult times!
This was the first time I tried the pizza and I was not disappointed. The broccoli and white pizza is delicious with a wonderful crust.
Do yourself a favor and visit this lovely restaurant...the service is unmatched. The staff truly cares about your experience and the food is absolutely amazing!!
Fantastic bar and restaurant - highly recommended!!
Seevice wAs wonderful. The staff running their butts off!! Really my only disappointment was the limited entree selections
My husband and I are long time fans of Il Faro. Jess and Chris do an amazing job of making each and every patron feel special. And the food, just wonderful.
Despite no St. Patrick events happening in Albany on Saturday 3/14, we were determined to go out and celebrate. Olivia was our charming server this evening. She was attentive and efficient. We were disappointed to find that the Shepherd's Pie had been scratched from the menu, but the Rueben Poutine appetizer was a tolerable substitute. We opted
entrées of Spring Fresh Fettuccini (aptly named) and Sole (the daily fin, which was lightly breaded, tender, and perfectly seasoned). Tiramisu rounded out our grand meal. Nothing fancy but genuinely friendly, Il Faro features a lively bar, a fine kitchen, and cheerful service staff. They also offer convenient lot or nearby on-street parking. Recommended!
Our third time there, enjoyed being seated deeper into the dining room, was chilly by the window last time, our server was great, nice sense of humor. We like that the menu changes often, poutine and arrancini a very nice start. Only minor complaint is stemless wine glasses, I have small hands and sometimes feel like I do not have a good grip and need to use both hands.
Food and staff were great. Especially liked the Risotto Balls appetizer. The flourless chocolate 'cake' for dessert was insane!
Some of the best service anywhere
We chose IL FARO from Open Table and they had a reservation available at the time we like. The staff was super friendly, very attentive and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We will definitely return to try other dishes.
we were there for Valentines night dinner. they had a live piano player that we could have done without but, the food and service both made up for the poor choice of accompaniment. we did not have to order off of the special menu and had plenty of different options to choose from. I would definitely and recommend Il Faro to my friends.
Food was great and the service was great too.
Food was amazing, we can’t wait to go back’
Good neighborhood Italian.
Quiet friendly casual place with great food and service
Just a wonderful place! Food, service, and drinks are always amazing!!
IL Faro always delivers outstanding service! A must place to be!!
Consistently wonderful food and hospitality Highly recommended for anyone looking to try a new place that will surprise your tastebuds
A romantic spot with great food! The service was warm and welcoming.
Enjoyed Restaurant Week, on a Friday evening. After our appetizers we all decided that we would be going to IL Faro! Loved it.
