It was great to find an Italian restaurant that has gluten free pizza and pasta which were both delicious!
Excellent service as well.

Service was excellent and pasta delicious. Had the carbonara and brother had the penne w ragu. Best pasta have had in a long time. Friends that came with are vegan and the chef made a special pasta just for them.

The entire staff there is lovely. From the moment I walked in, the hostess was friendly and each of the servers was knowledgeable and courteous. The manager also stopped by the table and he was great too! It's a bit expensive but makes for a really nice evening.

Bar Italia is one of our favorites in the City, and we always have lunch or dinner there, once we’re in the City. Last time was right before pandemic

Service, food, ambience and staff still great.

The only thing I’ve missed was the lovely playlist that used to play Italian songs, Sinatra, Tony and more, which is a perfect match to Bar Italia.

As usual, we had a wonderful meal at Bar Italia! However, the best part was meeting Hassan, one of the owners, who took the time to chat with us. It was truly a pleasure to get to know him and dine at his wonderful restaurant again!

Food was OK. Polenta was cold. Burger was OK. Gnocchi were excellent.
Had to ask for a drink several times before receiving it. Was charged for 4 drinks when I had 3. Way too many better dining options in the area.
