We had never been here and didn’t look at any reviews. The waitress was so good. She had great suggestions and was always available if we needed something. It may sound strange to talk about lighting but it set the mood for a perfect date night. This was obvious by the number of couples who were doing the same. You could also hear yourself talk and didn’t hear anyone else around you.
This is the perfect restaurant for a date. Delicious food at a reasonable price and excellent service and atmosphere. What more do you want?

The ambience was good except for the awful music that was playing, which sounded like Italian game show themed. It was very distracting and difficult to carry on a conversaation over. I was really disappointed since it seemed really odd. There is so much beautiful Italian music ... and something more conducive to setting a romantic, social vibe could easily have been achieved.

I ordered a pizza and was also disappointed that the black olives used as a topping (normally one of my favourites) were the kind from a can, rather than good Kalamata olives.

It was a special evening and the whole experience left me not wanting to go back unfortunately.

Excellent meal. Pasta special is always delicious. Ahi tuna was a nice change and was served perfectly medium rare. Staff was attentive and Covid procedures are being followed (masks, cleaning). Thanks for a great meal we will be back soon!

147 is my absolute favourite Italian Restaurant.
They do a fantastic job here.
The staff are attentive and yet fade into the background, allowing the patrons to thoroughly enjoy the experience.
The food, my Lord, the food is where they totally excel !!
Portions are big enough for any appetite !!

I don't find it worth the value. The cannolis were overcooked and fell apart. My cocktail was not worth the $13. My dinner was definitely not worth the $32. I'd say it was worth $20 max.

Everything was excellent except for the surrounding parties. They did not follow the COVID rules and although the staff made a slight effort to enforce these rules, they were too busy to follow up.
May I suggest a designated Host/Hostess that their only job is to greet, direct, and control such situations. I appreciate the hardships that your industry is experiencing, but we will not solve the pandemic if we let things get out of control.

We had the Grill Calamir, the Beet Salad and the Special of the Day Pizza and have no complaints about the food.

We were so happy with our experience - the food is outstanding (so fresh and flavorful!), the service was impeccable and the ambience was nice and quiet. We were seated near a window where we could look out over the water. I highly, highly recommend 147 as the Italian place to go to in Barrie. It is a true gem in the downtown!
