We had the pleasure of dining at Bar Italia last night. It was beyond perfect. The atmosphere was beautiful, and the service was beyond wonderful. We dined at the bar, and Tracy was so friendly and efficient. Now the food.... wow! Everything we ordered was absolutely amazing. The menu was full of options we can’t wait to try. We can’t wait to go back. We will definitely spread the word!!

My wife and I were celebrating a Valentines Day lunch with our newborn and Bar Italia exceeded our expectations. The food was excellent, the service attentive, and the atmosphere relaxing. They made sure to give us a big enough space to accommodate our baby being with us and couldn’t be more understanding. Very covid safe environment in our opinion and we will return very soon.

Threes too low and four stars are too high.

Maybe they were just off that night because they were so busy due to Valentine’s Day.

The shrimp scampi did not disappoint at all. It’s the best thing on the menu.

The chicken Parm was dry and even looked dry so I’m surprised they even served it. The salmon was great. The Campanelle or something similar to that, vegetarian dish. It had a clear to white broth but it was so liquidy it wasn’t thick enough to stick to the noodles and it was quite bland. I tried adding somebody’s red sauce pasta and that helped.

The special dessert was just OK.

I’ll definitely try it again.

Happy to write a review for this new hopeful staple in Lakewood. Went for Valentine’s Day weekend, made a reservation and everything went smoothly. Drinks and food were amazing. Highly recommended, if you like lemon chicken as much as I do, chicken limone is your entree.

The restaurant was packed but very covid friendly with great ambiance and overall vibe. Perfect for date night or girls night out! Definitely more veered to adult population. Food, drinks, and service were amazing! No complaints. I will definitely go back!

We went to the opening and were pleasantly surprised. We began with starter cocktails and both were made with care. The appetizer- carpaccio - was delicious. We ordered the Osso Bucco and the Tuscan steak and we were both very happy with our choices. The Osso Bucco was the winner though, just because I prefer a grilled steak over pan cooked. We split a dessert- the chocolate Vesuvius - delicious. My wife was given a red rose for Valentine's Day or because of the opening, not sure, but she loved it. We will definitely be visiting again.

We had a great experience - I highly recommend this new Italian spot. The wine selection was very good, and we each tried a pasta. The shrimp Diavlo was our favorite! I appreciated the paleo and vegetarian options as we had food allergies/diet restrictions. Nani’s sausage bread was the star of the meal ❤️

I wasn't as impressed as some of the other reviewers. We ordered the sausage bread, which was okay, but not worth $13. I ordered the chicken parmesan with spaghetti, and while the chicken was good, the pasta was overcooked (gummy) and parts of it clumped together. Also $20 for 3 small beers was ridiculous. Service was slow. I had to ask if we could place our dinner order because it seemed the waitress had no intention of taking it on her own.

I hadn't realized Lindey's changed over to Bar Italia until we arrived. It's nice to have a really good Italian option since Stino's is still closed for the pandemic. We'll definitely go back.

Ambiance is perfect, just the right lighting & noise level. Our group had different pastas and different sauces ... all outstanding! Don't mind paying for salads, but any Italian restaurant should offer free bread. Simple, cheap, makes you feel comfortable while you wait for drinks and dinner to arrive. Step up, Bar Italia, throw some bread on the table!
