Known as Glendale’s premier Italian dining experience, a meal at Far Niente is reminiscent of a trip to Italy, where family and friends come together and share delicious food in a warm, inviting environment.
Now they’ve added a fresh element to their bar: “The Loft.” Featuring plush leather couches, a 150-gallon aquarium, and view of the 25 ft. projected big screen, Far Niente is sure to be your new favorite spot to see the Big Game or just hang out with friends and colleagues.
The menu here is updated too. Starting this month there is a “Weekly Three Course Menu with Wine” which includes choice of appetizer: Mixed Green Salad, Glazed Shrimp, and Shoestring Potatoes or Beef Tartare.
Main Course is: Monday – Lamb Shank; Tuesday – Pork Loin Roulade; Wednesday – Tripe Alla Florentina; Thursday – Duck Confit; Friday – Salmon Ravioli; Saturday – Coq Au Vin; and Sunday – Seafood Stew.
Dessert is choice of Poached Pear and Spiced Caramel Warm Apple Cake or Lemon Custard with Lemon Verbena. This Menu is available for lunch and dinner and includes two glasses of house wine. Price is $39.
The Fast Bar Menu is another great deal. All items are under $10 and served with choice of French fries or mixed greens. Choices include the Salmon Carpaccio Wrap (mixed greens, capers, olive, red onion, tomato), the Short Rib Wrap (braised short rib, mushroom, spinach, Spanish rice), and a build your own Mini Pizza.
