Our waitress was superior, one of the best we have ever had. So personable, knowledgeable and every wish was her commend. The food was right up there with our waitress. It is difficult to find authentic Italian food. My Sicilian husband and his sister were wowed. It was our second visit and not our last. It was his sister's first visit and definitely not her last!! We love Bar Italia.

Possibly draped, subtle fabric toward the ceiling would calm the noise level. None the less, we'll be back soon.

It was quite crowded but service was not bad, the waitress was very pleasant.
the caesar salad was big enough to split between my husband and myself. I ordered the buccatini with bolognese and it was very good. All in all it was quite good although the noise level did make it difficult to talk across the table.

I enjoy everything about Bar Italia, except their bread service. I’d much rather have complimentary bread served before dinner versus having it along side my pasta.

Arriving a bit after the rush, service was a bit slow but ultimately attentive.

The food was superlative and not over-wrought with desperately random ingredients. The mixed drink I had was watered down and I doubt I would order liquor again from there.

A bit surprised that the patio/veranda was open to the outside and the inside dining so the temperature was a bit on the warmer side as it was 80+ and moderately humid.

The music was energetic and a bit loud but it added to the atmosphere.

Overall a really good experience and would have no hesitation recommending.

Great atmosphere. Loved the booths along the open wall on a beautiful evening! Service was very good. All the food was excellent - except the special mushroom bolgonese was very salty, not nearly as good as their traditional bolgonese sauce. But everything else was delicious! The molten chocolate dessert is amazing - worth every calorie!

We had enjoyed Lindeys Lake House, so we were eager to see what how its replacement would be. Bar Italia did not disappoint, although I did miss the lobster roll. We had Nani's Sliced Sausage Bread was tasty and we would recommend that you order it. It had great cheese and sausage and the bread was light. We also had the Chicken Marsala and the Grilled Branzino. Both light and we would get them again but there are other great dishes that we will try next time we go to Bar Italia!

Three of us were out celebrating a birthday. The serving staff was very attentive and the food delicious. The only complaint was that the shrimp dish one of us ordered was very spicy despite asking to have it toned down. However, it was returned and replaced with no problem. All of us enjoyed the appetizers and entrees. The restaurant also provided us with a large piece of spumoni to celebrate the birthday. We all agreed that we would becoming back.

It was my first time at Bar Italia the food was excellent and the service was phenomenal. We ordered the sausage bread as our starter so tasty and freshly prepared. For drinks, we tried the Italian punch and the Paloma both were excellent. I ordered the Chicken Parm and hubby ordered the Bolognese superb. We sat in the high-top area near the bar which I typically hate as the bartenders tend to get busy making drinks for other tables but our server/bartender was on it. She checked in often and we were never left waiting

We love all of the Rick Doody concepts and needed to check out the rebranded Bar Italia.
Enjoyed a great birthday meal with my wife. The calamari and shrimp was a delicious starter. For entrees we had Branzino and Shrimp Diavolo; both were delicious.
Sydney, our server, informed us that my wife would get a complimentary tiramisu for her birthday dessert. I was expecting a small serving, but it was large enough to share and was the BEST tiramisu we had ever had!

Excellent Nani bread and meatballs. Their french fries and zucchini fries are delicious-so is the lasagna and their burger.Not a fan of the marinara sauce.Would be nice if sauce options would not all be based on marinara.

Overall our experience was good, however our waitress was more observant to her other table who happened to share the same ethnicity as her and neglected to simply bring us over water and to light our decor at the table when we were first seated and so we had to ask and remind her of a few things that should’ve been a no brained simply because the rest of the guest had the same things as they were seated. Outside of us requiring our waitress to be a bit more attentive to us as she was to her other guest we enjoyed our overall experience.

The service was excellent + the food was good + only issue was the noise level. We’re not seniors, yet had trouble hearing our table conversation. Would have helped to open the coolass garage doors, however that didn’t happen.Not poo pooing the place, just don’t take older folks there ~ or DO take them, if ya wanna tune them out 🤣
