Food was so salty and overly seasoned to the point where I couldn’t eat it. I was up all night drinking water.
Food was great! Our server was great! All and all, a great evening!
Great food and great service. A taste of Italy that I would highly recommend!
Raising to 3 stars because at least it seemed like they tried. I hate to give a bad review but the food was disappointing. This is actually my second visit with my family, first was 5 years ago as a non-vegan. Back then, I recall the dishes were bland but very rich, though I appreciated a gluten free option. Now being 4 years vegan, it's been hard to find a decent Italian place so we were happy to know BR offered a whole vegan menu. The service was great... they accommodated our requests for seating and reservation time changes, and the server was helpful with every problem we had. Sadly, there were a few too many problems. It was hot outside and we hoped for air conditioning... well, we were sweating the whole time. The main course took about 1.5 hrs to reach us. The appetizers brought to us were incorrect. The asparagus was too chewy. My pasta was BLAND, the sauce was meh according to my family. Some of us liked the vegan meatballs, others in my party hated it.. I didn't try it myself. The first glass brought to the birthday guest had LIPSTICK on it, and that too during the pandemic! That alone made me feel icky. Nothing special was done for the birthday guest. The music was all over the place... 70s and 80s pop to modern cover songs. The place looks nice enough, it's not super expensive and portions are large but I just didn't care for the food. We will not be returning.
Service was very good. It was unbeatably hot in the restaurant and it ruined our experience. When we left the restaurant another patron complained of the same problem.
Really great experience the place itself is so nice! The food was DELICIOUS they had this amazing blackened salmon special and it was some of the best salmon i ever had! The drinks were delicious and the server was great and helpful with any questions we had i wish i remembered his name! We will definitely be back again.
Thank you so much for sharing! We are so thrilled you have such a wonderful visit!
Loved the Margarita pizza and the mozzarella frittes! The sauce was delicious! 5 stars.
Thank you s much for sharing!
I have a gluten and dairy allergy so it’s incredibly hard for me to find restaurants to eat at. However they had so many options I actually have trouble choosing what I want! I can’t tell you the last time I had a pizza out at a restaurant. I decided to get their BBQ Chicken Pizza (with the gluten free crust and vegan cheese) and it was INCREDIBLE. My family loved their regular menu items too. I’ve been here 3 times now and can’t wait to come back and try something else.
We're so happy to be able to provide you with a safe dining experience that you enjoy! Thank you for your support, patronage, and kind feedback!
Great service despite how busy they were. Friendly staff. Excellent apps and pasta dishes. Great teamwork happening with staff.
Thank you so much for sharing - our limited team members are working very hard and your recognition means so much!
Absolutely excellent place to eat and drink. It was our first time and definitely will not be our last. We had reservations but got there early and had a drink at the bar while waiting and decided to stay at the bar. Bill is fantastic and wound up giving us a tour as a possibly venue for our vow renewal. Christian was a pleasure to speak with as was the entire staff who was incredibly friendly. Food was delicious, not a single complaint. Meat and cheese board was to die for, as were the meatball sliders. My husband had the chicken parm, myself the chicken piccata. Both delicious. Next time I’m planning to try the eggplant parm. I’m very picky with my sauces and theirs was top notch. Drinks were excellent and made to perfection. Definitely a must try spot in Philly!!
Thank you so much for sharing your kind feedback! We are so happy you enjoyed your food and Bill's hospitality! We look forward to having you in again!
Salad / soup should be included with an entree and bread for the table would be nice
Food not the best but the prices and portions are great. Excellent staff and management. I would probably venture back here however the dishes we had were not the best . I would recommend reviewing the menu. The burrata and the shrimp/ chicken vedura needed lots of work.
Nice selection of pizza, sandwiches and entrees. Will be back
Thank you for your feedback!
Great service and family friendly.
We are so glad you enjoyed your visit!
The food was great, the service was nice. I really enjoyed the ambience; loved the music.

This place was incredible. We visited from California and this was the best Italian food and friendliest service we received from any of the restaurants during our trip.
We are so happy to hear this!! Thank you for sharing! We hope you enjoyed your trip to our city!
Incredible food and service! Jack was awesome! Very accommodating to all allergies and diets.
Thrilled to hear you enjoyed your experience - thank you for sharing!
Visited 6/25. Our server was sweet and their happy hour cannot be beat for the quality and taste. Their happy hour seems to be one of the best kept secrets in the area and selfishly I hope it stays that way so I can keep getting reservations!! As a vegan, it’s not often that I can get much from happy hour menus but the vegan meatball sliders were basically a whole meatball sub and delicious. I appreciate their vegan options SO much. The balsamic asparagus was phenomenal and the asparagus was fresh and cooked to a perfect texture. The manager seemed to be active on the floor checking on tables which is good to see. Been before and will definitely be back!
We are so happy to hear about your experience, and that you enjoyed our vegan options! Thank you so much for taking the time to share! We hope to see you in again soon.

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.
Food and Service were so good! I would definitely go back.
Great service.Staff was nice. Food was very good. Location is very accessible by walking in center city.
