Great pre-theater spot that's not in the hustle and bustle of Time Square if you have a little bit of extra time. Food was fantastic as was the staff.

Bar Italia is a must , everything is good, food, service, ambiance, bread, all is good. The chef Denis, always is there, that it’s make sure a great food, because he is really good, has a little bar, with very good cocktails, try the Negroni and lychee martini, excellent.
Liver with polenta, Lolo roso salad, endive salad,spaghetti a la bolognese, pizza , everything is really good, try the swordfish too.
We are being going there many times, and never disappointed. All guys from service are excellent.

The table was too small for our party - a four top cannot sit comfortably at a small round table.

Food is excellent but overpriced even for East Side. Pappardelle and mushrooms at $30 is maybe a little high but that is reasonable. The starters are way overpriced. $24 for caprese that has a just cherry tomatoes cut up is ridiculous. I will go back but stick with entrees. Food is very good quality and well prepared.

Was there to celebrate a friends birthday and the restaurant is lovely. The food was delicious yet pricier then anticipated, the veal was $49 and the bill had to be corrected for a mischarge, so questioning the price was too uncomfortable to do while taking a friend out. The wait staff were kind and engaging and food was great.

I found Bar Italia to be very overpriced and the service was not good.

Our dinner plates were taken away before we were totally finished and although the waiter apologized, when he promised to bring the dessert menu, he never did. i felt like they were trying to get us out quickly and we left and had dessert elsewhere!

Food is great. Service is over bearing; refill glasses after every sip, its a continuation of staff at your table sharing their life stories. Probably because slow (Friday???) night. Prices are a little high (appetizers), but food quality was great. We were seated next to front door (restaurant was at 20% capacity all night) and looking at back of hostess the entire time.

Very disappointed with the food and ambience. There was a large table of 15 people including one baby there on a Saturday night. They were so loud and obnoxious we felt like we were at a TGI Friday’s. They sang happy birthday 3 different times. Couldn’t wait to leave and probably will not return.

Bar Italia is adequate if you are in the area and need some tasty pasta. The wait staff is both cordial and attentive, but the place is cramped and overpriced. You are paying for the real estate.

We went for the second time to Bar Italia because we had such a good time the first. Ten or twelve people for a birthday party the first and just the two of us for our anniversary. We were remembered by our waiter and were offered a lovely seat in the back of the restaurant. Our dishes came out the way they were supposed to, hot and flavorful by an attentive wait staff and a concerned management. Shared the red and yellow roasted beet and goat cheese salad, and the pappardelle with mushrooms and the boned dark meat chicken in a wonderfully flavorful tomato sauce. For dessert, we shared Gelato, Come and enjoy!

Very small noisy upper east side Italian. Food is only ok but with a big price tag and service is unfriendly and average. Better to go to a serafina of which there are many and I’m not even a big fan of that eatery. The food and service are similar but the price is far more consistent with what you get.
