    This restaurant was amazing. The service was perfect and everything we ate (and we tried everything) was delicious. Can’t wait to eat here again.

    Wonderful in every way. We appreciate that the food and the waitstaff are excellent. Love the salads. Love the Milanese. Latest favorite is a petite delicate squash stuffed with sausage and topped with roasted kale and cheese. Sweet and savory and substantial enough to make a light meal—this dish is unique to Bar’Cino. Feel is laid back but the food and service always are on point —with loving care and great skill.

    Avoid busy hours as the service is rushed. Would try restaurant again, but for an early or late seating to see if service is better.

    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!

    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!
