Quality of food is usually
Quality of food is usually excellent. Very rarely have we had a poor experience.
When that has happened, the waiter apologizes and takes the dish away.
Service is less predictable. Some waiters make you welcome and make you
want to return. Others are less pleasant -- even brusque.
Still marginally heavy on the salt. A favorite of ours.

Good for Groups
I have taken a group on walking/museum tours for my local hiking club and we have dined at Barbaresco several times and have always had a good experience. The food is excellent. Even though the restaurant was full during our recent lunch the service was reasonably good considering we were a group of 15.

Excellent all around. Far enough away from the madness of Times Square. Worth the walk if you're staying in the middle of the touristy part of town. Seems to be mostly locals which is a sign of a great restaurant to me. Carpaccio, Pollo Dolce Vita and Biscotti were delicious. Definitely going again.

Lovely Neighborhood Italian
Warm reception, good food minus the usual heavy sauces (excellent fish), helpful caring service, interesting varieties of wine to compliment your food choices, leisurely unhurried dining without being stuffy. Perfect for a dinner with friends or just one -on- one and near Bloomingdales'!!- for any New Yorker . . .an understated, winning combination.

Reviews didn't disappoint.
We went there looking for an authentic italian meal and this place didn't let us down. The wait staff was excellent and seemed to be native Italians. Service was excellent. The food seemed to be homemade. We especially liked the tomato spread served with the bread. Pasta was great. A little noisy and seemed to appeal to an older local crowd. Overall, very good experience.

A wonderful brownstone front
A wonderful brownstone front Italian to have in the neighborhood. Crowded on a Monday night. Simple but pleasant decor. Excellent food with lots of daily specials. Great Italian wine list, especially the reds. Friendly, accommodating staff.

Quaint Italian Restaurant
A very good Italian restaurant. The food was fresh and well prepared and the staff was knowledgeable, organized, and helpful. We would recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning again.

Escape to Italy.
The food was amazing! I ordered the Penne Incazzata which had a spicy tomato sauce. My sister ordered this pasta that was stuffed with a spinach purée, covered in a cream sauce and pine nuts. The ingredients were so fresh and light and didn't make us feel like death afterwards, which happens a lot after a big bowl of pasta. We didn't order dessert, but they did being a plate of almond biscotti over. Correction, they brought many plates of almond biscotti over. A man, who I'm guessing was the manager, then came up to us and asked us how are meal was, and then told our waiter to bring us some Limoncello and, yup, more biscotti. Overal our experience was amazing and I would recommend Barbaresco to anyone who loves great Italian food.

I have been to Barbaresco TWICE in the past 3 weeks because of Carlo! He has made my dining experience so enjoyable. He has treated me and my guests with such respect and makes you feel like you are the only person in the restaurant. He brings the term "Friendly Service" to a new level. I can't wait to go back again with some new friends to introduce them to this new "gem" of a restaurant. The food is absolutely delicious and the wine is amazing as well. Carlo always had the perfect recommendation...for everything, from wine to appetizers to dessert. If you haven't been, you must go!

Excuse me.. can you slow down
Great place and good food, but I felt rushed the second I sat down. The waiter spoke so fast it was difficult to discern what he was saying and the food came so quickly that there was no time to relax and enjoy the moment. It's one thing to turn tables - it's another to be clearing dinner plates and having coffe served over your shoulder at the same time. Slow down my friends.

Wonderful food, Excellent Service
Barbaresco has always been a delightful experience for me. I have been about 5 times in the last few months and will continue to dine there and bring new friends. The food is absolutely delicious. I have ordered the seafood pasta special the past 2 times and it is spectacular. I would also highly recommend the prosciutto appetizer. YUMMY! The best part about Barbaresco is the friendly service. Make sure you ask for Carlo! He is super! He knows the menu perfectly, he makes excellent recommendations and he makes the dining experience very pleasurable. I will definitely be going back again soon!
