Went for Center City Restaurant Week, and the menu was delicious and genuinely on of the best meals I’ve had in Philly: I had the Burrata, Chicken Parm, and Lemon Cake. But my favorite part was my fantastic server Jack mixing my Blood-orange Bellini in front of me! Highly recommend. Will definitely go back!

We loved everything about Barra Rossa, from the service to the food. We get spinach and artichoke dip everywhere and theirs was by far the cheesiest and most delicious. Our pasta dishes were all wonderful as well. We would highly recommend this restaurant!

I spoke to several staff members about the flickering light bulb over our table, they each assessed the light but it was never replaced.

We're very sorry about the lightbulbs. We're extremely short staffed, so we apologize this negatively impacted your experience. We would have been happy to have moved you to another table.

I was expecting a nicer experience I guess but I would put the ambiance / experience as comparable to a Maggiano’s. What bothered me: the service - a couple other tables- larger parties- came after us and had their food serviced well before we did- our dishes were two veg and one seafood pasta dish. Seemed as though the kitchen either delayed our orders or forgot. The most jarring thing though - loud club-style pop music. It was jarring, loud and totally out of step with dinner at an Italian restaurant. Couldn’t wait to leave.

Barra Rossa – Philadelphia
Responded on May 20, 2021

We do apologize about the pacing of your dishes. We are very short staffed at the moment so we're not executing as efficiently as we would always like to.

We had a 7:00pm reservation on Mothers Day. We arrived at 6:50pm and still had to wait until 7:15pm to be seated. Our server was nice, front desk staff were nice as well. Our food was really good. It did take a good while for it to come out but I attributed that to the holiday.

Responded on May 20, 2021

We do apologize about the wait. We are extremely short staffed, and Mother's Day was our busiest day since reopening - so we do apologize again.

My babe took me here for a Mother’s Day dinner date and I must say it was freaking amazing ! The service was a little sketchy in the beginning only because they were over booked and under staffed but it turned out to be amazing ! The food 10/10 drinks 10/10 amazing I do recommend! Thank you so much !

We chose this restaurant without knowing anything about it and we were very pleased. Molly our server was also the bartender and she did an outstanding job at both. She was pleasant, sociable and made great drinks. They were still at 50% capacity in Philly when we were there so it was calm and quiet. Our food was good, came fast and was very reasonably priced. We would recommend Barra Rossa to anyone looking for a nice, friendly dinner spot in Philly.

Andy was our waiter and didn’t mean as a beat. We started with the Arancini which was really good. I had the penne caprese. It was delicious. My daughter got the blackened chicken fettuccini which she thoroughly enjoyed…I wish I had gotten it. My husband got the shrimp scampi and said it was very good. My husband and is split dessert which was a chef creation like a Stromboli but made with an oreo cookie and chocolate center - yum!!! I had 2 specialty drinks - a blueberry vodka lemonade and the blueberry mint sangria. Both were delicious!

I decided to get the Philly dilly pizza (pickles and ranch) to take home as I decided I had to try it. It was very good!!!! We are definitely going back!!
