Always nice to have lunch
The mushroom risotto was magnificent
Once again, Bar Italia does not disappoint! It is fantastic from the espresso to the meal to the service! I recommend the tagliatelle and the spaghetti carbonara!
Too much money for a whole lot of meh. The service is mediocre and waitstaff is combative. For the prices I paid, I wanted something more special than bland. The cocktails are good, if they remember to place your order, and it’s somewhere that just isn’t worthy of making a point to go to. Pretty bummed....
Great service and food! Would definitely go back
Superb cocktails, brilliant food and awesome gathering place.
Amazing experience! Definitely order a tequila martini!
Beat salad was partially frozen
Average authentic italian food. Service was good. Think there is a disconnect of expectations relative to reality. They have to improve the key product which is authentic italian food.
Food was exceptional. Gluten free options were amazing. Best GF pizza in the world!!!
The service was horrible and rude. I was upsetting about the restaurant seating and bad attitude, so end up left the restaurant went to another one to dinner... but they lied saying was Me No show,, I was there 6:30 sharp, but they don’t have any table for me , and been very rude, so we left ... they asked my last name so they knew I was there ... liar
Service is extremely confused with many people working in a narrow space and not much clear organization. The vibe goes from snobby to friendly. The prices are a bit high...
Nice atmosphere and attentive service. The food was very good
Most disorganized restaurant I’ve been to especially up front
Lovely management and great servers. Food was great and the atmosphere was lively
Definitely give it a try
Delightful. Very good food. Great service! Perfect ambiance!!
Burrata mozzarella was suggested as an appetizer ! - it was just ok and cost $30. That is overpriced even for Madison Avenue.
Wonderful food and service. Highly recommend. Great location.
Love afternoon long lunches here sitting by the open doors people watching along Mad Ave.
The food was amazing!
Great Tuna Salad!!
Delicious, real Italian food in a welcoming atmosphere.
Nothing special for an Italian people, really expencive.....
My favorite in NYC!
It is an extremely noisy restaurant. Food is ok, nothing special. Service is a little slow, but ok. Tables are very tight.
I've been here several times before and loved the food and the place-- this time, although the service was polite, the food was flat out terrible. First off, the bread was slightly stale. The salad was ok, quite fresh. But then things dived downhill-- in a simple dish of pasta with mushrooms, there were about 4 mushrooms on top of a bowl of glued-together pasta that must have been pre-set up and sitting on a warming table for hours to become so glued together you could not jackhammer out a strand of pasta. It was literally like one solid mass of congealed leather, the worst basic pasta I have ever seen served anywhere, ever. This is really unforgiveable in any restaurant-- or home, for that matter! My friend had veal with "risotto." the "risotto" was like basic white Uncle Ben's rice and flavorless with zero of the creamy texture that risotto is supposed to have. . She barely touched her veal and left most of her meal on the plate. Mine was simply physically inedible. The bill for dinner for 2 was in the $200 range, including one glass of wine. Ugh! I should have complained on the spot, but I had a guest and did not wish to cause discomfort. Caveat emptor!
Fantastic food and service. Wonderful specials. Had a wonderful lunch.
Great meal. Supper service. Very welcoming.
I though the food was ok. The portions were very small!! Service was ok. I don’t know that I would go back
Very good , nice food and hospitality
We had seven people in our party, all arriving at different times, and Bar Italia dealt with a difficult situation brilliantly. We all ate our main course at the same time. THANKS!
I went with a person in a wheelchair and they were very accommodating and very helpful. Throughout the meal the waiters and the Maitre D were very attentive and present. The food was very good too and value for money is excellent for NYC.
We had a perfectly lovely time having lunch here with our nephew. The food was delicious, the ambience was casually elegant, and the service was warm and friendly. We will be back.
Great service. Great cocktails. Try the tequila martini. The Roman gnocchi special was fantastic, as was chicken special in mustard sauce with rice pilaf. Go for the affogatos for dessert.
I used to love this place The food has taken a turn for the worse
I have been eating at this restaurant for 10 years. I love eating lunch or dinner here. It is decorated in Italian film noir. They even play old black and white movies on a large TV screen in the back of the restaurant. People are dressed all over the spectrum here. Casual, high fashion, and old school sophisticated. Great for any occasion everyday, date, special occasion, business, to just meeting girlfriends.
Nice looking restaurant and lovely maitre d'. Glasses of wine EXPENSIVE, $18-22 each and NOT a
generous pour. Obviously where they make a lot of money and we felt taken advantage of. Food fine, quite good. If you don't drink, you'll probably enjoy an evening there a lot more.
We came for a pre-theater starter and drinks and reserved our table for main course & dessert after the show. We were disappointed that at 11 PM when we returned, the restaurant was already closed! On a Friday night, seemed very early to turn us away
Overall the restaurant was good, but not up to the hype I’ve heard. The food was perfectly good, but nothing extraordinary. Service was spotty, although the owners couldn’t have been nicer in welcoming and thanking us for being there. It was pretty noisy with a big party going on in the back, but not so noisy as to restrict conversation. I thought it was pricey. What I would expect to pay for an extraordinary meal. I doubt I would go back or recommend.
