Casual Italian Dining in Laconia, NH

The owners of Faro Italian Grille, an incredibly popular Italian fine-dining restaurant in Laconia, NH, wanted to bring the “fast-casual” model of Italian dining to the area, and this vision became a reality in December 2018 when Faro Express opened its doors. 

This fast casual model features the same high-quality ingredients and made-to-order Italian dishes as our full-service restaurant, but without the wait. With less overhead and a scaled down menu, customers are able to enjoy homemade Italian cuisine in a matter of minutes and at a lower cost. It isn’t fast food. Rather, it’s good food, fast. 

Faro Express was designed with a clean, bright, and modern atmosphere with light beige and white colors and accents of copper. A popular spot for lunch, diners can choose a table or take a seat at the bar where they can take advantage of convenient mobile device chargers. Families love us because they can enjoy their favorite Italian dishes without breaking the bank. 

We have also become popular among Laconia-area businesses who place multiple lunch orders. With our fast turnaround, there’s plenty of  time left during the lunch hour to enjoy a freshly-prepared meal. We are all about convenience, so you can dine in, pick up, or have your order delivered (within 5 miles of the restaurant; doesn’t include the islands).


Delicious Italian Dishes To Fit Your On-The-Go Lifestyle.

How does it work? When you walk in, you are greeted with paper menus and chalkboards detailing the menu offerings. You then proceed to the counter and place your order directly with the chefs, who then prepare the food on the spot while you pay.

You can wait at the counter and watch your order being made in the open kitchen or have a seat at a table or the sleek copper-topped bar. With the exception of whole pizzas, orders are typically ready in five minutes or less.

Fresh, Made-t0-order Italian Food in the Heart of the Lakes Region

Our menu features subs, pizzas, sandwiches, salads, and signature items along with our wildly popular create-your-own-pasta options. With fewer staff members, we are able to use the same fresh pasta and from-scratch meatballs, sausages, and sauces that we use at Faro Italian Grille for a fraction of the cost.

Families love Faro Express because of the fast service and lower price point, which makes great Italian food affordable.

Fresh. Homemade. Authentic.
