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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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!

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.
