Calamari was very tasty, we each had a pizza which was delicious and my husband has the tiramisu and he thought it was excellent. We'll be back when going to walnut street theater.

The service is great. If you're a vegan, this place isn't the spot for you. Pasta was simply ok but the wine was great.

The noise level of our table was terrible we were placed next to the upstairs bar even though other tables were available. We started with one server and were switched half way through. He was very attentive. Food was just average.

#1- they have plenty of Gluten Free choices that are on their menu. Other restaurants might only have one or two choices.

Terrible service. Man at reception stood there looking at us and did not greet us at all. Made a reservation and had to wait at the bar and when the girl escorted us to the wrong table, she goes oh well there's one available there you can go to. Never coming here again.

Food is classic American Italian...... food was very good! Out server was excellent, very attentive, and our food came out nice and quick! I would definitely recommend Barra Rosa for all types of occasions, and it is great for families and larger groups too!

Every time we go to the Walnut St Theatre, we have dinner at Barra Rossa. The food is excellent! We always sit in a booth on the second floor. On Sunday, when we told the waitress we were going to the theatre, she said" I remember you from previous visits". That made us feel special.
When Nick was there, he always was so nice. We really miss him.

I have never been treated like we were. Our waiter was the WORST ever!!!! Not only was his service pathetic, he was insulting and unaccommodating. I asked if he was new...he was not. Any restaurant that has help like this should not be in business.

Dinner after the theatre to celebrate a birthday. Food was great; service fast and friendly. The waitress asked if we were heading to or from a show - very conscientious of our needs. Nice, fun, rustic bar feel. Will go again!!

The overall experience was enjoyable. Our food was delayed by about 40 minutes but the waiter was quite gracious and served us desserts on the house! I have gone there in the past and have had great experiences so this one experience was not the norm. I would go back again!

Excellent food, reasonable prices. A good choice for a meal before the theater. Service, however, was not as good as usual; we had difficulty getting our waiter’s attention.

We ate at Barra Rossa before a show at the Kimmel Center. There were six of us in our group. We all really enjoyed the restaurant. Our server, Hailey, was very friendly and informative. We took some of her recommendations and we were very happy with our selections. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. We will definitely come back to Barra Rossa.

Typically everything is fine here but on Sunday there were no rolls, no Diet Coke, a waitress who gave us the wrong check and was inattentive. Disappointed by the experience and hopeful that this was a one time experience.

Barra Rossa is a reliable dinner spot, with interesting dishes and pizzas and moderate prices. As a bonus, they provide a discount for Walnut Street Theatre patrons. It's a great place for a pre-theater meal.

The food was very good and so was the service. My only issue is that we were seated on the second floor by the clearing station and kitchen. Loud clanging dishes and talking servers... it was very difficult to enjoy it. I made reservations weeks in advance. That table should be the last to be used. It should be offered to walk-ins when the restaurant is booked and only if patrons agree to it.
