    We love this place! We have been fans since they first opened. This is one of the only places that hasn’t changed their quality, menu, or price (in a significant way) since before COVID! The food is DELICIOUS. Everything is outstanding and unexpected. If you think tomatoes on bread can’t be mind-blowing try their tomato bruschetta. The drinks are perfect, the service is so pleasant, and somehow there always seem to be last minute reservations available on OpenTable even though the place is popular! Parking is easy (and free after 8), even on a Saturday night. I would highly highly recommend this place:) P.S. if you have been recently disappointed with Barcelona like we have been, this is a perfect alternative.

    Bar Cino is one of my favorites! But when it’s crowded in the winter it’s not my favorite. The service was slow and inattentive we were always short straws or plates or drinks. They should really consider better air filtration because we’re still in a pandemic and the air was so stale I was so hot and uncomfortable! The pizzas were very greasy

    The service was terrible BUT they did the best they could. It seemed very short staffed! The food was awful! This restaurant seems designed for thoughtfully so the fact that the food was prepared and served so carelessly was disappointing. Hope you can turn it around.

    I live in the neighborhood and am really glad this is nearby. It’s a really solid option. The ambiance is fast paced and upbeat. The food is not Michelin star but certainly a solid option. Also want to note that they are accommodating for celiac’s gluten free folks. They can make most of their pasta dishes gluten-free and that’s always nice.

    I've been to Bar Cino twice now, and each time the service is impeccable. Everyone is really attentive and kind, and they make you feel comfortable at all times. The food is always delicious, and the portions sizes are filling but not too big (I dislike portions that are too large). I would recommend to anyone who's in the area. A great date night spot on a Friday night.

    I celebrated my birthday last night in bar Cino and it was a stellar experience. The waitress was very helpful and sweet and the food was absolutely delicious. The music and the the wine was delightful. This was last minute choice and absolutely no regrets. The place was recommended by a family member. I guess this is our new dining family spot 🤩

    This was our first visit and we very pleased. Most of our party is either pescatarian or vegetarian and the restaurant is mostly meat focused, however, a couple of us had the salmon and it was delicious, one of us had the tagliatelle and another one of the pizzas. I tried the pasta and the pizza and they eye very, very good. The cocktails are delicious. They have a great ambiance and the staff is very friendly.

    This is the only place I dine at when I’m in town. I really like and know Italian Food, and this place is definitely ITALIAN! The service is great, the food is excellent and the wine list in perfect accommodation with the Menu Offerings. I HIGHLY recommend this Restaurant to anyone seeking good Italian cuisine.

    Hard to get table reservations, but sitting at the bar is fine. Pleasant staff, lively atmosphere, but very noisy. Recommend the crispy cauliflower, the Sangria and the risotto. Expensive, but it is a totally worker owned business, so that's a good feeling.

    What an awesome neighborhood gem. We were welcomed and helped throughout the meal and staff was so quick and kind to come to our rescue when we overturned a wine glass. The food was delicious and certainly as good or better than any fancy downtown restaurant. Thank you so much. We will be back!

    As always, everything was very good. Restaurant was very crowded when we were there at 7PM and by that time they were out of quite a few items. They were out of the bottle of wine we wanted, they were out of mashed potatoes that were to come with one of our entrees but did make a substitute. We are frequent diners here and this is the first time we experienced this. I certainly wouldn't hold it against them. It still is one of our favorite restaurants.

    When we arrived we were told there was a power outage but it was expected to resolve shortly…which it did. But as a result, after we were able to order, it took a bit longer for our meals to come out which was understandable since everyone ended up ordering at the same time. The food was very good! My only “issue” was that it seemed a bit drafty inside, and as we were ready to leave, it felt like the A/C was actually on…made for a quick departure.

    First time at this neighborhood restaurant and will definitely return. Have already recommended it to friends. Very nice atmosphere, excellent service and delicious food. Two of us had the sandwiches and raved about the bread. The farro salad was full of vegetables and wonderful textures. Felt like I was back in Italy! The outdoor patio on Beacon Street looks fabulous with lighting and heaters.
