Great food. Incredibly flavorful. Pretty reasonable (med-large) portions. Recommend the prosciutto pizza and the cauliflower small plate.

COVID-19: Ate outside. Tables were pretty close together. Very busy but fast service. Were given check before being offered more drinks, dessert, etc even though we still had a bit of time left on the reservation.

Overall, great meal.

Yum! Enjoyed a delightful late lunch with a good friend on Bar 'Cino's patio, and cannot think of anything better. Lovely space, delicious bruschetta and grilled pizza (the fennel sausage was YUM) and a nice wine selection. Prices on par for the area. Lovely kind staff (thank you, Miguel).

Nice menu, ambience, and excellent service with Emma, but chef has a very heavy hand with salt; I’m a salt addict and several dishes were on our 2nd visit much too heavily salted again. We’ll give it one more try, with requests about no added salt, if it happens again, with regret, it’ll be 3 strikes you’re out. The place has a great vibe.

The brunch menu offered lots of interesting choices. Both my friend and I ordered the wild mushroom omelet. The omelets were delicious as was the accompanying tri-colored salads. We ate outside on the large patio where each table has its own umbrella. Our waiter was very thoughtful. He adjusted our umbrella so that both of us were shaded and came by often to fill our water glasses.
All in all we had a very nice meal and I look forward to going to Bar 'Cino again.

Bar 'Cino is one of our favorite out door dining spots. We discovered it during the pandemic, but it has become one of our favorites all around for wonderfully prepared food. The wait staff is well informed and pleasant, as well as very attentive. We are never searching for someone's attention, and feel as though the staff is comfortably available. The menu is interesting with a varied selection, and consistently excellent. We just love this place, and have felt quite comfortable with the safety protocols as well.

Our server went above and beyond... my son has multiple, life threatening allergies and when ordering they took our questions and enquiries seriously. They were willing to adapt the order accordingly. The food was fabulous... excellent pasta! Great size portions and good value.

Rachel was an amazing server and the food was superb. Even the host was so cordial, we can’t wait to return. The cauliflower was the best, but we also loved the broccolini, the burrata, AND the meatballs. But the pistachio cake was amazing! Please go support them - they deserve every customer they get!
