Great food and drink at great price
Very nice wine list, about seven beers on tap that aren't the same-old, mass-produced tasteless stuff. Great menu of both traditional and modern Italian fare. Plus, very reasonable prices!

Interesting menu - more than just bar food - a fine mix of favorite dishes that will appeal to most anyone in your party.

Awesome - as always
You can always count on BARRA for an amazing pizza. The asparagus pizza is my personal favorite. Love this place and will definitely be back soon.

I had forgotten about this place
I booked a table for dinner the other day. Their appetizers are so good we wound up taking barely touched entrees home. Service was slow but overall a good value for the money.

My wife and I went there for lunch on recommendation. We were the only ones there and it was great! Service was great, beer was terrific, and the food was delicious. And the price was very reasonable. I don't know how this is for dinner, but for a nice lunch for two, you can't beat it.

What first caught my attention was the 1,000 point open table reservation (score!). Was meeting some friends for happy hour before a concert in Camden so intended to eat early and relatively unfussy. The gourmet pizza options fit the bill exactly. We chose the white pizza with goat cheese, apples, arugula and prosciutto with balsamic. Words cannot describe! There were several very tasty-looking options that we had a hard time choosing. If you are looking for spot close to the ferry with a variety of food options, I would definitely check this place out. You might even see if they have a pizza take out option.

Pizzas are always good. A minor error with one pizza was handled well by the server. The hamburger wrapped in pizza dough was really good!

Nice food, nice prices
All-around very nice. Sensibly priced and a good value. The food was quite tasty and well presented on the plate. Will go again.

Amazing Truffle Pizza!
Mallory was fun and funny and she made great recommendations and she knows everything on the menu . I really enjoyed the white truffle and mushroom pizza and my friend really enjoyed their homemade lasagna ...and their New York cheesecake .
He's still talking about how good it was ...

Good food, music level too high
My family and I decided to try this restaurant on a Saturday night. Had no trouble booking same day for 8 pm. In fact, I was surprised that there weren't many people in the restaurant--not usually a good sign. However, we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience with one exception. First, we all enjoyed our food choices. There was a decent selection of vegetarian options as well (for me). Service was attentive and friendly. We really liked the general ambience--a very casual, but upbeat bar/restaurant. My only negative (the one exception) is that while I don't mind a place with an energetic noise level, this place was just too loud--the music was turned up so loud that I had to resort to reading lips part of the time!

Quiet, but nice
Went here on a Sunday night and we were the only people in the main restaurant. This was a little worrisome. Once we ordered our food however, we were amazed at how good the pizza was. Easily one of the top two or three pizzas in the city. Also the wait staff was very helpful and energetic. Highly recommended.

I wanted to treat a colleague for lunch, and we were craving good pizza and wine. This place had both. There were no other diners at the time, which suited me just fine. Tanya, our server, was shy, but attentive. The truffle pizza is amazing, and the margherita pizza was a real bargain for the incredible taste. The glass of wine hit the spot, and from what I understand, so did the beer. I would definitely come here again, especially for 1,000 points!
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was a great place to enjoy some authentic food. The lasagna was outstading and the burger was filling. The prices are very reasonable and the service was great.

The waitress that we had was very helpful, friendly, and always there for us when we needed something. The pizza that we ordered was great (spiced apple and goat cheese). The food was delicious and we had plenty to take home for leftovers.

Great Service, so-so pizza.
I have been trying to get to every brick oven or Naples style pizza place in the city. Unfortunately, while Barra got the brick and thin part right, they missed on the freshness taste of the Naples style pizza. Bara's Margarita is good, but not great. The sauce was a bit spicy and not that fresh tomato flavor you would expect. It lacked the aroma of the basil and that unmistakable taste of the buffalo mozzarella. The dough was excellent an while it was cooked a little too long for my taste, it still was good and went extremely well with my Peroni on tap. Wendy was awesome and I like the atmosphere. Improve the freshness of the Pizza (less spices, and use fresh buffalo mozzarella) and your place will be a hit! We only had the pizza.

The pizza was delicious. Good
The pizza was delicious. Good value and portions for price. Good craft beer options on tap.
Only complaint was understaffing. It was a Sunday night was only one waitress for entire restaurant. She had to greet diners, answer phone, and serve. Result was long wait to get drinks, and take order.

Great late-night find !
came from the Wells Fargo Center after seeing the Bon Jovi concert and he gave us a three hour long concert so we went over ...did not arrive until almost 11 and they made us the best pizza with apples ever ...! ...the chef was there Steve and he was super nice he even gave us a preview of the new pizza that is about to come out it is a southwestern style amazing ! The bartender Maria was very attentive to us and we love her ...as well as the general manager ...he was fantastic... Mr Evans ! Thank you Barrage, for being our late night gem!

Great Find in Old City Phila
Although billed as a bar, this Old City neighborhood gem had an interesting take on usual bar fare plus some out-of-the-ordinary choices, e.g., short rib ravioli as well as veggie/vegan options. Something for everyone when you're looking for a cut above when looking for something for everyone. Great & helpful service.

Had the truffle mushroom pizza...
Awesome!. ..my friend had the salmon...
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
I ended up at BARRA on a whim when I was in the city - excellent Italian food, and somewhere I'd definitely visit again when I'm in the area. The bar was lively and sometimes loud, though considering it was a Saturday night, that's to be expected. Just a good, solid Italian meal.

Happy Hour & Dinner
The service was excellent. The happy hour prices are very good. All of the food we had that evening was EXCELLENT. I guess you have to have good food to survive in Old City. We will definitely go back there.

Give Barra a Try
Been there a couple times for lunch and was pleasantly
Surprised at how good the food was. They bake a lot of
Items in their pizza oven including their cheeseburgers
Which they wrap in a thin jacket of pizza dough. They are
Delicious and made with high quality beef. Salads
Are also fresh & not overly dressed.

Great place for romantic dinner
Fantastic food, friendly staff, reasonable prices, pleasant atmosphere - what more could you ask for?

Tasty brunch in Olde City
A very pleasant surprise. Barra had a solid breakfast/brunch menu but my wife and I went with lunch foods. She had a BLT with speck instead of bacon and I had one of their famous burgers. They make their burgers wrapped in pizza dough, which is cooked in their brick over. Both lunches were very tasty. We would come back for these items. Also price was reasonable.
