B.B. Italia Kitchen & Bar
Book your next event with us
Sunday Ragu was fantastic. Slowly making my way through the menu. Great night out with friends.
We use to patron this location when it was under a different name. However, since BB Italia had taken over, we have not been there since. We decided to give it a try primarily because it is run by the same folks from B&B Butcher Steakhouse. We love the food there since it is only 15 minutes away from our house.
We were NOT disappointed. Loved the dishes we both had and decided that we ill be back again soon. Victor, our server, was very attentive and recommended us a very nice inexpensive bottle of wine as well. This is now one of my favourite Italian restaurants.
Food was very good and good value..excellent pricing given the Memorial Dr. location. Service was was good and timely. Staff was friendly. The Manager came by to check that all was as it should be. Even the Vallet gets in on the good customer relations deal. Will be back !
We were very disappointed with this restaurant. I really don't know where to start. Service was terrible -- I think the wait staff also cleaned the dishes in back. Food was significantly worse than the fast-food version or Carrabbas. Definitely not the value we were hoping for.
Wonderful evening with friends. The food was delicious and the service was very good!
We love BB Italia and are so happy to have it in our area!!
Mediocre food to be kind, and terrible service! We told the waiter at least 5 times that we are celebrating a girl’s 17th birthday. He completely ignored and brought the cake the girl ordered without a candle, and of course we were charged for te birthday cake too. Al dente spaghetti came mushy. Valet parking didn’t even bother to close the car door before leaving us, leaving us in the middle of a parking lot mess . Will not be here again unless forced
The Friday night music starts too early. Four of us brought an out of state guest who was familiar with Carmelo’s and interested in seeing and trying the new restaurant in it’s place, this past Friday night. The noise level in the restaurant is very high to begin with but when the music began, it was just terrible. No one could hear a thing, not even from the person sitting right next to us! Really awful. My guest did not enjoy the experience at all and we felt bad.
We went for Happy Hour- food and service was great!
The food was okay —crab cakes, but not the beet salad. But then the dessert was frozen SOLID! We had to ask the waiter to take the sundae to the kitchen to get it out of the dish- and then we TRIED to cut bites with a knife- to no avail. Really? Who serves a frozen solid ice cream sundae?!?!?
We loved Carmelo's and have enjoyed BB meat market so we had to try BB Italia. A shocking change to atmosphere but still nice (not as cozy and a lot brighter. Food was quite good and service was attentive and a few servers were Carmelo's returnees, a pleasant surprise. We will return and do recommend.
New Years eve
The food and service were great! Went for a date on NYE. They had a special wine list and the Chianti was amazing! The food was delicious. We will definitely be going back.
After much hype, I was very disappointed in the experience at BB Italia. Food was very disappointing
no flavor at all. Four different meals, all really mediocre at best. Italian grits were very bland.
Gravy for the short ribs added nothing. Wine was OK.
Great service & food!
We thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant, the service and the food. I would definitely come back again.
Food was bland. Lasagna was all pasta and barely any sauce or meat. Carbonara was dry. The garlic bread tasted like cigarette smoke. Had to practically jump up & down to get waitress’s attention. One and done.
Second time there, love this place!!
Benjamin was AMAZING!! He was so attentive and accommodating to our every need. The food was impeccable and left our taste buds tingling. Another wonderful experience! Thank You!
Excellent food and good service. Beautiful interior of restaurant is marred by playing modern pop music which detracts from the ambiance and charm
The food was great! The ambiance was so well done!
2nd time at BB Italia and it has become a favorite already. Italian food is authentic. Service was not up to par, but value was outstanding. Other places charge 2X more for less quality.
We were able to get a table for 10 at the last minute for a Holiday Gathering. Great service and food. Staff - Benjamin, our waiter was especially accommodating. Great bar area to eat in as well. Highly recommend if you have not been to this gem out West Memorial!
We really enjoy having such great Italian restaurant in our neighborhood that has a nice atmosphere and truly good service.
Food was great and service was excellent. We enjoyed our time and would definitely will be back!
Everything we had was great!
We loved it all...and enjoyed the amazingly delicious leftovers two days later!!!
Both my wife’s and my pasta were so salty they were nearly inedible (she didn’t eat hers as she had salmon, all I had was pasta).
Very friendly and attentive service by Victor.
Caprese salad included wonderfully tasteful cheese and balsamic. Tomatoes could have been better.
Frute de mare and eggplant parmesan entrees were very good. Downside- clams were pretty tiny. Upside - pasta was wonderful (made in house).
Food was excellent as usual. I have been a regular patron since they opened. Initially it was obvious that the owner had hired top quality experienced waiters with a very professional approach. Not so this time. Bread was flung on the table (bounced twice), by a surly waitress who made no eye contact. Then the waiter was slow to take our orders and disappeared for long periods. Finally the food arrived and again was dropped on the table with no comment. Bottom line - food still great, service sucks. New staff need training by the originals.
Went for a work dinner. Staff is nice, good wine, okay food. For the valué, i would return for takeout.
Breakfast with Santa was awesome! Great food, organized well. The cookie decorating station was perfect for my 2 year old.
I have placed my comments on Yelp. The noise level was terrible.
The lasagne was served cold. The dish was replaced.
Absolutely fantastic food and outstanding service!
Thanksgiving special. It was great
So happy to have this walk-to Italian restaurant in West Memorial during construction hell. It has been consistently amazing since opening, and have had the opportunity to enjoy many offerings... most recently, the Thanksgiving Feast, and I do mean feast. Every course was spot on, and the turkey & stuffing with Italian sausage was some of the best I have ever had, served along with a yummy cranberry compote that had to ask for more. The butternut squash ravioli should be a menu staple. Thank you Mr. Berg- Carmelo should be proud of your updated Italian cuisine and lovely revitalization of this restaurant.
Thanksgiving meal was terrific! Our waitress Jennifer made the day so special. Great holiday family meal
