    Bar Italia's service and food were uniformly very good to excellent. I especially appreciated (on this and other visits) that when we said we wished to share a salad, they split it in the kitchen for us onto separate plates. However, it can be very hard to hear your companions because of the acoustics. Even toward the end of the evening, when the room is no longer crowded, the way the noise reverberates makes understanding each other difficult. I otherwise love this place and am very happy it's in Lakewood.

    My dish was served luke warm and was overly salty. I ordered coffee and was never offered refills. A disappointing meal. I’m hoping it was due to how busy the place was that night.

    As always, the food was fabulous. I love the fresh pasta and marina sauce! Only the parking is the real drawback-but we were lucky and found a spot very close! We will be back soon!

    This is by far one of the most excellent places to eat in Cleveland. The staff and the management are all wonderful people. Everything from the pizza to the pasta is high-quality food. We have been here many, many times and have never been disappointed.

    Took 20 minutes to greet our table.. Took 20 minutes to get drinks... Took 60 minutes to get entrees... A bit surprised with this visit, since we regularly come to this restaurant. Waitress only had 2 tables and we were one of them. I'm a waiter at a five star restaurant and this doesn't happen. A table should be greeted within 45 seconds! Start there with repairs!

    First time here. Went here for a birthday dinner and enjoyed everything from the cocktail, bread (be sure to ask for their house pesto in place of the oil), the mushroom pasta and Chicken Limone were great. our service and meals were excellent. We did unfortunately leave behind our to-go tiramisu lol

    Read about BI in the Cleveland Magazine. Read very good reviews on OT. The starter of Fritti misto was good. the stuffed peppers were tasty. My steak was undercooked and the color was lt. brown. I ordered it medium rare I would consider this rare. My daughter’s vodka pasta was flavorless.Caesar salad was tasty. Pasta bolognese just ok.
