Resent visit to BariThis is my husband's favorite restaurant -- mine not so much, at least in the past. Went there for his birthday. Now that I understand the pricing and menu choices I now no longer think it's overpriced for what you get. My husband was in heaven the whole time. My daughter & I didn't like the grilled appetizers at all. She loved her steak entree. My scallops were great. Again my husband was in heaven with all of the selections, Next time I will choose what I am sure I will like for the beginnings of a wonderful meal. Service was great and so was the wine. I'm looking forward to returning to try some of the meats and cheeses.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMCheese Cheese CheeseThe cheese menu as well as smaller portions and multiple course dining was so much fun and very unique in Memphis6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNot just for special occasionsWonderful atmosphere with excellent food and a very knowledgable staff that is attentive without
being intrusive.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial Place to gatherThe food is delicious, the service is attentive but not intrusive, and they offer things you will not find in other restaurants. It's a small bar and restaurant that invokes a feeling of intimacy whether you are meeting with good friends, family or your significant other.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMCharming, relaxed, and delicious !The right amount of food - very European. Wonderful bread right out of the oven.
Delicious fresh produce and seafood. A very fine and affordable wine list.
And cordial service without being rushed or hovered over.
A lovely way to spend an evening.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Italian, huge cheese menuIf you want excellent, authentic Italian food, do yourself a favor and go to Bari. The Carbonara is every bit as good as that which I had while in Rome. The seafood is always fresh and flavorful. Do pay attention to the specials; they are usually very good and worth trying (good example: the Mahi with balsamic that I had during our most recent visit).
The cheese menu is utterly divine. Try as many different selections as you possibly can.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't be beat!One of our top 3 favorite places in Memphis!

The food is reliably good, including the seafood. We both especially like the carbonara, but everything is good and authentically Italian...no gloppy lasagna, no one-size-fits-all sauces. And they don't try to push tiramisu on you for dessert, either!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBari is a small, quaint ItalianBari is a small, quaint Italian ristorante featuring Memphis' best italian cheese and wine menu.

Never disappointing. Great menu plus specials.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat little find!Thoroughly enjoyed Bari! Excellent menu, including a separate cheese menu. Very good service. Small place, so slightly noiser and lighter (lighting level) than I would say for a "Romantic" place, but excellent for higher-end dining while maintaining conversation at normal levels. Overall, superb meal.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
