    We went to for lunch. The branzino was excellent and the chicken malanese was boring. Salads were very fresh and dressed perfectly. Non-alcohol cocktails were fun. Service was good but could have been more attentive, especially at the end of our meal. Will go back!

    Really enjoyed our dinner had the best kale salad ever and a really good pinot noir. We shared a pizza with Prosciutto, fig, arugula and cheese which was all so terrific along with outstanding service.

    Ordered the antipasti board which was very good especially the fig jam. We also had the special seafood dish which was excellent and the chicken entree plate. We love this restaurant and the chicken is not my favorite unless you get the shared chicken which is great.

    Highly recommend Bar 'Cino. A real gem. They offer several vegetarian and vegan options (I can recommend the grains & vegetables with creamy polenta, cannellini beans, and wild mushrooms), and the seafood is excellent. My girlfriend ordered the spaghetti cacio e pepe with clams, pecorino, parmesan, and pepper, and she was very impressed. We shared a tuscan kale salad and a tasty bruschetta, which were both delicious. I noted on our reservation that it was my girlfriend's birthday, and they treated us to a complimentary dessert of our choice. Our server was very friendly, too. The restaurant is somewhat overlit, in my opinion, and the atmosphere was not particularly romantic. We will go back for the food, though.

    Most of the time these days when you make a reservation at a restaurant thru Open Table and they ask if it’s any special occasion and you tell them, when you get there the restaurant never mentions it. So why ask? Not so at Bar Cino. They went out of there way to make us feel special. At least 3 different employees came over to say something. Of course, like most reviewers say, the food was excellent as was the service. Thanks for a memorable anniversary!

    We really enjoyed experiencing this restaurant - new to us. The food was very good, the salads in particular. We found it a bit noisy initially, but after becoming engaged in conversation, we hardly noticed. We are looking forward to trying their grilled pizzas and will visit again soon.

    Bar ‘Cino is like all the Newport Restaurant Group restaurants, is reliable for service, ambiance and food qualities. This one is not overpriced. But like all the restaurants, the menu doesn’t vary. There have been the most minor changes in the menu at Castle Hill Inn and The Mooring in ten years! Bar ‘Cino, only open a couple years, hasn’t changed. The menu is not friendly to folks needing to eat gluten free…only a couple dishes…
