Food was great! Service was slow. Our dinner took a solid hour to come out.
The food here is always outstanding. And with a lot of other restaurants closing in CWE i admire the fact that they are holding on. They DO need to work on the service level but the amazing food makes up for a lot.
I was disappointed in the salmon.
The meat was excellent though could have been more tender for the price, the vegetables and sides incredibly bland. Make sure you check menu before going. Overall the price was quite staggering compared to the quality of food. I've had better food for cheaper.
Nice dinner--very good service. The Pollo Agro Dolce is always great! Enjoyed our evening very much.
Food was outstanding. The group had a variety of meals and all were excellent. Nate did a great job of waiting on us!
Not the bar italia I remembered or was hoping for. The food was just ok. Very disappointed.
Our favorite Italian restaurant!
It wasn’t worth the price.
Waiter was well informed, knowledgeable and friendly. Beautiful restaurant inside, despite outward appearances. Loved it! Looking forward to going back.
Food was really good! We had the steak medallions and it was full of flavor!
It was perfect
An absolutely wonderful dinner for my birthday. A true neighborhood gem and a longtime favorite. Excellent service, food, and drinks!
Superb service and excellent food!
More casual than I remember. Was expecting business casual/classy Italian restaurant. A lot more t-shirts, jeans, etc. level casual. Food was great. Service was good for casual level of restaurant.
Great food and service. Quick delivery and tasted amazing
good ambience, good food + good arrangements considering all the covid mess we are in :)
They’re back! Food was awesome and the place feels like home. Made for a perfect New Year’s Eve celebration
My friends and I had NYE dinner here. The food was great and the service was excellent! I love the ambiance.
This is an amazing place. the service, covid caution and the food is great. We have gone for years and are never sorry.
First time visiting this restaurant. The atmosphere was oddly quiet and awkward. The food was all just ok, but the service was pretty poor. There were very few customers, but our server was extremely slow and not attentive at all. He came across very disengaged in his job and just went through the motions. We waiting significantly long between his visits and almost 30 minutes before we could find him to get our check after we finished eating. It’s kind of sad considering how many restaurants are closed for inside dining. I’m sure other servers would be grateful for the job. He obviously didn’t care too much. I won’t be returning.
Excellent food and service. Fresh bread with carpaccio. Yum. Will be back.
Bar Italia provided great food in a great setting. The service was excellent. We felt very welcomed and will return.
We always enjoy the food. Even with a shortened menu we found exactly what we wanted for dinner.
Excellent service, very attentive and friendly staff.
Even with the socially distant spacing of tables, the ambience is still warm and cozy.
I had a confirmed reservation for 3 people. When we arrived at the restaurant, they did not have a table for us, they sat us outside in the cold, plastic tent. We had a confirmed "inside" dining reservation. While we were waiting, a couple just walked in from the outside, sat down right next to our table. I explained the Covid seating to the waitress...then they took the couple with NO reservation inside to wait for a table. When we asked them, they skirted the issue. We left, went to Retreat Gastro Pub and had a fabulous dinner. Never again!!!
Fabulous patio and food. Attentive but not overbearing service. Thank you for a lovely evening!
Outdoor in a tent. Very comfortable. Good spacing. Good ventilation. And of course the food is delicious
The manager was great. It was almost closing time. But he accommodated us.
Great food and service. Loved the patio!
Seated in the small room and it was quiet. Choices for vegetarians and meat lovers. Appetizers, pastas and mains were all tasty.
It's been five years since we tried Bar Italia (moved away). Glad we stopped on Saturday night. Wonderful dinner for three people - Salome, Bistecca alla Grigliz and Fettuccine Tri Amici were all wonderful. The wine recommended by our server were excellent.
We had a great time celebrating my birthday! The owner was very gracious and super knowledgeable of the wine pairing.
Lovely neighborhood spot. The food and service are excellent. We enjoyed our entrees, and the server suggested a very nice wine. Recommended!
Typically this is a very good restaurant. However, on Valentine’s Day, the experience was NOT good. The steak arrived rare and when it was sent back to be cooked to medium the individual who brought it out never said a word and just dropped the plate on the table. When cutting into the steak it was still rare and largely not eatable. Likewise, the other person in the party ordered a pasta with vegetables Which arrived cold. I understand Valentine’s Day is a very busy day for restaurants, though this is not the experience I am used to having at bar Italia.
Spent $190 on dinner. My wife had lamb chops and a rum and pineapple juice. I had the tenderloin a Tanqueray and tonic and 1 glass of Cabernet with my dinner. Lamb chops were over cooked. My tenderloin was really good. Ambiance was good. Service was pretty good. Limited menu. Pretty meh restaurant a lot of money. Overall disappointed.
Great service and atmosphere. Happy that they serve grappa as well! A St. Louis gem.
Bar Italia is a favorite. The menu is varied; the food is well prepared and presented. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and available; the service is correct without being stuffy.
Great experience. Our table near the window was private but a little cold — but the food and service made up for that!
Great food, good service. Overall, a lovely dining experience. The owner came by our table and made suggestions for an after dinner drink. There are many options for Italian food in St. Louis, but this is really a cut above.
