I was really looking forward to dining there but unfortunately we had to wait over an hr for our food
The food was nice but everyone’s meal came at different times
The waitress was wonderful and couldn’t stop apologising as they where low in staff in kitchen
Not sure if I would go back with my family maybe just with girlfriends for a wine and a talk

Took 1.5hours for our main meal which was two pizzas and one pasta.

No warning at all. When asked the waitress said another 15 minutes - we then waited another 30.

Very disappointing.

Really authentic Italian cuisine. Loved the linguini, still craving for more. The slow cooked lamb was done to perfection. Service was excellent and it was so lovely sitting in the Alfresco setting. Lovely gardens to wander around. It was an unforgettable experience.

The menu had changed which was disappointing because I really loved the seafood spaghettini (with red sauce) and was looking forward to having it again. Also when booking online it wasn’t specified that high top seating was outside which was a little inconvenient. Besides that, the service by all the staff was outstanding.

It goes without saying the food was amazing! Which is why I have booked our wedding there.
Service was good but can tell the floor staff is new and still getting comfortable.
Thank you for an amazing lunch.

I’ve eaten there X2 now . Each time I’ve asked many questions with regards to gluten free and have been assured all is well. I was sick the first time I dined at farm vigano and decided to give it another chance . I was TERRIBLY sick the second time ! Love the restaurant, atmosphere , workers are so friendly and accommodating but with regards to recommending coeliacs dine there , unfortunately no bloody way. I will NEVER eat there again . Which is really sad because I love the place . The atmosphere is awesome, especially in summer . Sorry farm vigano but the restaurant DOES NOT cater for coeliacs 😢

A very delightful and unexpected oasis in the middle of suburbia! Beautiful food and good service make dining at Farm Vigano a very enjoyable experience. Parking is easy and the scenic stroll down to the restaurant has interesting plaques relating the history of the farm. Certainly an outing to be recommended.

Service was outstanding. The guy who made our drinks and then seated us was pleasant and very personable. Been coming there for a while with friends and family and you guys do it absolutely right. All your staff deserve a pat on the back for the way they treat all their customers, especially with the year we’ve all had. They’re Always up for a chat and never drop the ball when it comes to quality of the food and excellent customer service.

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.
