Found it a little disturbing when we seen a waitress hug and kiss a patron walking in for lunch
As she didn’t practice safe distancing and could put patrons at risk

Beautiful surroundings and food but service was severely lacking. Booked and were seated at a dirty table that wasn’t set - had to ask twice for our food orders to be taken and for a second round of drinks. Staff were too busy clearing tables to take care of patrons. Many were also wandering around aimlessly rather than being attentive. Such a shame as the food was lovely.
Also, puzzling how the best view is from the toilet...

The food is always lovely. No point asking to be sat in a particular part of restaurant as this is always overlooked. Asked to be near a window, sat the furthest from this in a door way.

A beautiful place to simply spend time over a coffee and bite or a feast. Went there for our anniversary and asked the staff to help make it memorable with certain things I wanted done and my expectations were exceeded. Thank you for an amazing experience.

Have been to farm vigano numerous times. My favorites is the patati pizza and riccotta cannoli. We also had my wife's 60th birthday which was great. I look forward to going back again soon.

Very overpriced. They charge $10 per person for calamari and prawns and you get a small plate between 4 people. The lamb and pork was enough for only 2 people. $400 later...

The atmosphere and venue are lovely. Staff were great and could not fault. Wine list is also good. My only negative is that's it's expensive for the quality of the food. Great for a causal pizza or pasta.

Venue is awesome. Ordering is fabulous. Food service was disjointed - staff apologetic - shared plates coming out at various times - not together, with one very late. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Noise levels - with little kids squealing nearby - was a bit of a turn off. Pricing did not reflect quantity of food provided - was a bit pricey. Overall experience was good and will return.

Food was amazing. Found it a bit annoying that we couldn’t pay for drinks at the bar as we purchased. Also kept asking for 2 bottles of water and kept getting one at a time, again annoying. Having said this, the venue and food where amazing. Our waitress was also lovely

The restaurant is situated in a lovely area overlooking a valley and trees. Very unexpected as you drive through an established suburban estate. The food was delicious and good service.

Loved the atmosphere and the surroundings, overall very very expensive for the Quality of food 😙 coffee wasn’t served with sugar I needed to ask for it, I ordered a cappuccino wasn’t made with Coco on top.. Although the waitress was very polite, she was run off her feet because she had no help!!!! Definitely need more staff and lower your prices!!!!!

Our beautiful waitress ( Italian girl with a pony tail) who has looked after us for the last three years around Christmas time, remembered us when we arrived. She paid attention to our elderly mother who is in a wheelchair and treated her respectfully. She is a real asset to Farm Vigano. She advised us on portions required for our number of diners, with excellent accuracy. Our food, as always was delicious. We also appreciated another waitress giving us take-away boxes to take the left over pizza home to my husband who was ill and regretfully unable to make it on the day.
We'll be back and yes we will be recommending Farm Vigano to everyone. Merry Christmas to everyone there.

Food was good but very pricey for what it was. Place was very loud had to scream at each other to converse. Not kid friendly - no kid menu. The atmosphere was not inviting felt cold. Not in a hurry to go back.

Quite hard to order drinks, lots of staff hanging around not doing a great deal, our waitress looked like she was angry about something. We consistently had to wave a waitress/waiter down to get service.
We found a piece metal in our antipasto which looked like it was from a wire cleaning brush in the kitchen so we advised the waitress and she said she would "let the chef know", that was the last we heard about the metal in our food - no apology at all.
The food was nice (minus the metal wire) however the service and overall experience left a lot to be desired.

Very pleased to say our experience was great as we were there earlier in the year and service and food was terrible, which given we’d eaten at Farm Vigano several times was very disappointing.
So pleased that may have just been an off night as we thoroughly enjoyed everything at our recent visit.

Farm Vigano is a hidden gem! We really enjoyed our lunch midweek with our daughter along with us. It's a special atmosphere with enjoyable views over the Plenty ranges and amazing food. We enjoyed the slow cooked lamb and porchetta with sides of rocket salad and fries (the 3 year olds request of course!). The meat was generous - we expected a single serving but these dishes are made to share!
We will be returning with our whole family and extended family to share another delightful meal!
