At a cost of nearly $3 million, this ain't the familiar Farotto's of pizza-and-pasta fame in Rock Hill. The owner's daughter, Lisa Parrott LaRuffa and her husband Gerard LaRuffa, have created an upscale eatery with a contemporary Tuscan feel. There's something for everyone, because Villa Farotto is really four operations under the same roof: the fine-dining Vineyards room, a spacious and loud bar area, a separate café section serving lighter fare (think the other Farotto's) and a market inside the café that sells wine and cold meals to go. But if you're in the mood for serious dining, head for the dining room and tuck into the osso buco, a big veal shank thick with luscious marrow and bathed in a red-wine demi-glace that will put a smile on your face. There's also fresh seafood, an excellent tenderloin and several pastas and risottos.
