Food was delicious. Hostess was not particularly welcoming. The place was not crowded yet our party of 2 was asked to wait to be seated upstairs. After waiting about 10 minutes we were seated upstairs but outside in the cold. There were heat lamps although the wind was chilly. Perhaps the hostess could communicate seating options or offer guests a blanket if outside seating is the only offering. A little friendliness goes a long way too. Afterall, this is a neighborhood spot in a residential area.

We were celebrating a late Valentines dinner, I saw the excellent reviews on Yelp so I made reservations, the food was better than what we expected , the wine excellent, and will absolutely return. I already recommended it to my friends who are big foodies.
the only thing I would recommend is that you ask for a table outside, inside the tables are too close to each other .

I had a friend that recommended this place. I pass by this place all the time but never had a chance to visit until my wife and I finally booked a last minute date dinner last Friday. At 845p, the place was happening. We were seated upstairs in a nice cozy room full of romantic ambiance. The server who also happens to be part owner was very attentive and gave us great recommendations. My wife had the beet pasta which was amazing and i had the tagliatelle with a bolognese sauce which was robust with flavor. Both of the dishes were simple but with enough complexity and sophistication. We had semi fredo for dessert which was a great way to complete our meal. For those in the SM / Venice / Westside area, I highly recommend it.

The Wild Boar Pasta was perfectly al dente and the meat was superb. The octopus was perfectly done. Service is excellent in a very romantic, candlelit, rustic setting. Our #1 favorite westside restaurant.

The food was wonderful, and the service was great. Had a couple of the specials as well as the beet pasta (which is a must) and am sorry that they are not everyday items. The duck carpaccio was incredible.

This Venice "converted house" was off my radar until introduced by a friend. What a find! The space is a bit crazy but the service and the food is so good you forget about the layout and even about the noise - very loud and always crowded. Here, the highlight by far is the creative and well prepared food - period. Everything we had from salad to pasta to protein was wonderful. This is a food snobs delight. (Get the beet pasta...no, don't think about it, don't ask about it and don't try to figure it out....JUST GET IT!)

Nice experience but food prep was not exceptional. Fish was over cooked and pasta course with truffles was excellent but with rather small portion size. Service was terrific but as a small space there noise level was quite high.

Food was delicious. Loved the Beet pasta with Quail. There is only one salad on the menu and it's for good reason - it was so good and perfectly balanced. We had the Scallops special, salad, beet pasta and sea bass and Pinot Noir and everything was great. We'll be back.

Very nice, cozy restaurant on Main Street in Venice. The staff is friendly and the ambiance is lovely, set in what looks like just a small two-story house on the street. The food is great, although it came out quite slow. The pastas were flavorful and tasty – and despite that most of the ragus are from typically gamey meats the flavors are mild and approachable even if you're not used to animals like rabbit and pheasant.

Overall great meal and restaurant!

If you are in Santa Monica/Venice Beach and like good quality food and overall dining experiences this restaurant is a must. Lovely atmospheric setting, attentive service, but most importantly the food is unbelievably good! It is an Italian restaurant, but not your average pizza and pasta shop - have a look at the menu online and you will see what I mean!

I have been to this place the last couple of years when visiting from the UK and will definitely be back in 2018, quite simply the best Italian food I have ever experienced.

I requested a table upstairs on the balcony when I booked the reservation, however when I arrived the hostess said she couldn’t fulfill my request. It’s the only thing I requested for this special occasion- my girlfriend arrived hours prior from a 12 hr flight from Switzerland. With that in mind, we wanted a quiet and evening and the hostess put us right next to another two-top which we were so close to and could hear the whole conversation and consistent stories with the server that they apparently knew.

Why have a ‘request’ field when they cannot fulfil the only request?

High expectations, poor results. Went to dinner for my girlfriends birthday. After reading the above average reviews we were very excited to dine at Barrique. Our initial server stumbled right out of the gate and was repeating the nightly specials. Both entrees (bone end veal shank and the filet mignon) were very bland with absolutely no flavor at all. They tasted as if the chef forgot to season everything - including the extremely small serving of vegetable that accompanied our meal. Part of the reason we were excited to dine at Barrique in the first place was the website touting of Michelin starred chef Antonio Mure. When I asked our server if Antonio was in the kitchen, he stated he had not been there for years. You might want to put a disclaimer on the website about that. WTF?

I'm not the only one who thought Barrique would be "good for birthdays." There were 5 other birthday celebrants enjoying the delicious Italian fare. The pastas were exceptional as was the special daily appetizer of figs and scallop crudo, all served graciously. After the food, which Barrique certainly has down, my next favorite thing in a restaurant is to get to sing "Happy Birthday" to strangers. I got to sing for my sweetheart and 4 others.

We went to Barrique for my birthday. The attention to service was wonderful. We were helped by Tony and Michael. Both excellent. We were trying to decide between two entrees and Tony surprised us with the one we didn't choose as a gift from him. I whole heartedly recommend the Tagliolini Rossi con Ragù di Quaglia in Fonduta di Taleggio
Home-Made Red Beet Tagliolini Pasta in a Marsala Quail Ragú served on a bed of Taleggio Cheese Fondue. It was one of the best dishes we have had in a very long time. The rest of the meal was delicious as well. Go to Barrique you will not be disappointed. I will definitely be going back.
