You no longer have to go Venice to experience an authentic wine bar, as Barrique Venice is ready to serve you. The wine cellar at this place is worthy of the admiration of the most avid of collectors, and the finger foods pair well with your favorite red or white bottle.
Barrique Venice is a great place to go out with the girlfriends, enjoy some nice music and great conversation, all with impeccable service. The soft meat, vegetable and cheese platters are always a hit as well, and are expertly prepared at Barrique Venice. The next time you're out in Venice, head on over for a fantastic time.
Our dinner was amazingly yummy! Our waiter was super attentive. It was an incredibly enjoyable evening from start to finish.
Best Italian restaurant in the area
We absolutely love this wonderful Italian restaurant for a romantic night out together. This was for Valentines and they kept their regular menu which we much preferred. The octopus starter, wild boar ragu pasta, and chocolate desert were all outstanding. And I lived in Italy for 8 years so I can truly say that! Definitely one of the best restaurants in the area.
Food was good - not great - especially given the prices were on the higher side. We went on Valentine’s Day and, though the brothers-owners were very nice, we felt rushed. Table was tiny and barely accommodated our food, drinks and bottle of water. Outside is nice but upstairs looked even better in terms of ambience.
Everything was great. Only critique was courses were rushed. Entries came out and we were still enjoying the appetizer.
Same other tables around us
I am a fussy restaurant goer and I was very pleased. This was my first time going to Barrique. I was very pleased. It was a charming experience and the pasta was delicious. An added bonus was their fabulous wine list. I highly recommend it.
Food and service was good. But the place was noisy also little congested.
Fantastic! Great food excellent service and superb ambiance. Love it.
Always delicious, always great service. One of our favorite spots.
The food was very fresh and such high quality - the steak melts in your mouth.
I was a little disappointed. I notified the restaurant in advance that one of our guests had an allergy. When we were seated they acknowleged this. Yet after ordering and when they started bringing the food our guest was told they could not easily accomodate his needs. He has eaten all over Italy, and NEVER had this issue. it would have been more appropriate to let us know earlier, ie when we ordered or call and tell us before we came in
I wrote a note along with the reservation that it was a special occasion and they placed us at a wonderful, secluded table on the balcony. The service was wonderful, the waiter recommended some great dishes that we really enjoyed. Would love to go back!
The food is delicious, though a bit pricey. The noise level upstairs on a Saturday night is high.
The tables are a bit close and so you don't feel like it is very easy to have private conversation.
Food was amazing! Great and quick service. Cute date spot.
Food was extremely salty and overpriced for the quality
Great service and food!
The pasta was so delicious. Al dente and perfect! I would definitely go again!
We have dined at Barrique several time over the past few years.....The food always stands up , well prepared, great ingredients....Food was great Friday, but we felt rushed through dinner. The staff asked that we order everything, and they would "Pace us", as we indicated we we not in any rush. Our main course arrived and we had not finished the white wine we had with the appetizer, and the red wine was not yet open. If I wanted to eat quickly, I would not have come here....I hope the staff see this, because we love the food, let me dine next time. Thanks, David Prior
I love the restaurant and the wine selection was off the charts. Cheers to the chef!
This place was awesome. We went in for Dine L.A which was such a deal. Thank you to Tony Black for the hospitality. I had a great date night.
The appetizers were uniformly very good. Unfortunately the steak and veal chop special were very salty and fatty.
The pasta entrees were excellent and the fish special was good too.
We were treated to champagne in honor of our anniversary a very nice touch.
We liked the outdoor seating and the noise was not overwhelming.
great inventive food and wonderful service. sat outside with the heaters and it was completely comfortable and quiet. will be back!
He's an incredible chef.. The grilled octopus appetizer was delicious and succulent - one of the best dishes I've had in memory. I had the rabbit pasta which I know is very popular, but it's a bit too sweet for me, so next time I would go for something more savory, like the Paccheri alla Norma (which my wife had). We shared a pistachio dessert custard(?) which was fantastic, creamy with chunks of pistachios.
The food was delicious authentic italian. Loved the quail raging!!
By far my favorite Italian restaurant
Michael and Tony and all the staff are great and very passionate about the food and service the chefs are amazing creating delicious dishes I think everyone should come to enjoy with family or a date
Awesome space, great food
Excellent pasta dishes. Very helpful and knowledgeable servers. I definitely will be back.
Excellent food! Excellent service! We'll go again for sure.
charming, friendly italian restaurant. we from the UK found it rather expensive -but that applies to the whole of the US!
If you would like real authentic Italian fresh delicious food amazing atmosphere!!! This is the place to be. 4th time and same amazing food and service. Love everything about this place.
Celebrated my birthday and from the food to the service to the ambiance it was a perfect evening.
Amazing, authentic, incredibly tasty Italian restaurant with top tier service. Every time I walk in with incredibly high expectations and every time they exceed them. You won’t leave without a smile on your face.
This is an excellent romantic date restaurant for the LA area. The staff was accommodating and polite. The cuisine was as good as it gets!
Delicious food, great staff with attentive service and romantic atmosphere.
Barrique was a perfect date night experience. Romantic ambiance , wonderful food, and top quality service :)
We loved this restaurant. The atmosphere is cozy and casual and the service was great. Most importantly the food was excellent! We had the watercress salad, tuna tartare, truffle pasta special, and branzino. All were superb.
Four of us on a special evening at a Michelin star restaurant meant high expectations, and this place met them with grace, style and wonderful food. Play pin the tail with the menu. Everyone was pleased and everything was perfect. Price was a little excessive, even for a special occasion, but if they can get it, salud. For us it will remain a unique experience. Those who can afford regularly, go for it!
Everything was spit on. Red beet pasta is a must. Certainly returning.
Was definitely a nicer place. Didn’t quite fit with all the rave reviews but definitely a cut above everyday Italian.
We are on the small patio. It was nice. Appetizers were good, we shared 4 pastas - kinda hit and miss. Desserts were universally loved.
Go, but keep your expectations in check.
The service was exceellent and the food was mixed. I thoroughly enjoyed my carpaccio and steak. Other dishes were also very good, specially the watercress salad and the rabbit rague. The pasta dishes were ok but overpriced. The cost per person including wine and tip came to about $75.00; it was overly expensive for what was presented. Would go there again for a very special celebration.
