    This is not an Italian restaurant. It's just an extension of the hotel, with a bar and tables outside next to a small hotel pool. Only good if you happen to be staying at the hotel, and don't want to go out.

    When we arrived for dinner, a sign in front of the restaurant said the power was out. Unfortunately we were not informed the restaurant was closed even though we had made reservations. We wish for better luck with other diners.

    The place appeared to be understaffed and there was no one to greet us upon arrival for lunch at 12:30, which I would have assumed to be rush hour. The food was good, but arrived very slowly: 20 minutes for appetizers and another 20 minutes for salads and pizza. That said, I would try again particularly if I hear that service improves a bit.

    We were pretty much the only patrons at the time (1:00 in the afternoon) but that was fine. Service was casual and attentive. We ordered off the menu rather than the Dine LA special. Really enjoyed our meal and will go again. The only minus was the piped in music but it was from the hotel and not the restaurant....Next time we will eat inside as the music is not piped in there!

    a combination of hotel bar and restaurant. Outdoor seating with hotel small pool view. waiter told us could not adjust the heater that was right above us and could not turn it off. limited menu but food was decent. good for hotel restaurant. Not very expensive either. Overall good experience for a casual night out.

    It was our first time to Barbianca, but it won't be our last! The service was extraordinary, and the food was fabulous! Diner's must try the polenta if they want their taste buds to enjoy an explosion of flavor! We will definitely return with friends!

    We live in the neighborhood and decided to try a new place for Friday night date night. It was a delightful surprise! It feels like a modern, family operated restaurant that is warm and welcoming. However, even better was the food. We enjoyed the brucetta board choices, a salad and the wonderful salmon for an entree...delicious.

    Glad I came here shortly after it opened, as I'm sure it will be getting crowded shortly. The bruschetta was fabulous!!! We got the roma tomato, the heirloom tomato and the artichoke ones....delicious! I had the polenta as an appetizer (but it could have served as a meal)...delicious! For my final dish I had the prosciutto pizza...delicious! Everything was fresh and flavorful, and the service was fantastic! Will definitely be coming back to try more food!
