It was my boyfriend and I's second anniversary and we had selected "Annivesary" for the special occasion on Open Table - not sure if the restaurant would even notice it, and they ended up welcoming us with two glasses of Prosecco! Amazing service and really great food. Also a huge plus is that my boyfriend is gluten free and they have a completely separate menu for those gluten free options :) Would highly recommend!

Overall good but not great experience. Exceptional service and great ambiance. The cavatelli was salty and the pizza was decent but overall it was a good experience. It was restaurant week so keep in mind.

They didn’t bring out a cake or sing happy birthday to my girlfriend when I explicitly made a note about to do so and indicated it was her bday.

Always like this place..solid food but after this weekend I have a reason to frequent it more often due to the fact that the bone marrow pasta is OFF THE FRIGGIN CHARTS. A word to the wise for management. NEVER TAKE THAT DELICIOUS MORSEL OFF YOUR MENU!

Barano was fantastic. The antipasto plate was one the nicest ones I’ve ever had. The portions that you receive on it are much larger than at other places, and it was so fresh and delicious! My fiancé and I shared the vodka pie (SO good) and the spaghetti chitarra with meatballs, both of which were delicious. I could have eaten 10 more meatballs they were so good. The portion sizes were very nice and we had significant leftovers. Overall highly recommend for a nice evening out!

I’ve been here before and the experience was amazing. This time the ambiance was still the same but the food sucked for me. My partners dish was delish and the potion size made sense. My dish (plain spaghetti)was about the same in cost and the portion size was tiny. It was basically a tea saucer of food. I though I was being punked when it came out. It was like a child’s portion size of BOXED spaghetti( I know fresh pasta/went to culinary school), great tomato sauce, a sprinkle of fresh parm, and 4 basil leaves. For twenty dollars it just felt like a ripoff.

Good but not great brunch fare. Service was ok, but a few long waits between contacts. Had to deliver credit card to server when we were ready to go.

Service was not good, I had to ask for pepper 3-4 times for my salad. Also drinks were coming out very slow, food was quicker. Food and drink were delicious though and the host was very friendly!

Barano’s menu is a perfect balance of comfort and tasty surprises. I always believe the true test of an Italian spot is if the fish is cooked to perfection and if the sauce (tomato sauce) is good. At Barano the fish was perfectly cooked - not chewy when fried - and the pummarola sauce was so wonderful it brought me directly to my grandmother’s kitchen when I would stick the end of the Italian bread into her pot of sauce. I truly can’t wait to come back. Plus - gluten free menu!! I’m a recently discovered celiac who is also Italian so this made my night. Thank you Barano for a wonderful meal.
