We have been stalking FB for when the restaurant was going to open up! We were thrilled to be back at Birroteca! Our “bubble” dined indoors and we had ample space from other patrons. Our server was incredible, made fabulous suggestions, and took amazing care of us! The food was on point! (And the lemon vodka wine spritzer was soooo good) We had Brussels, kale salad and thai chili wings to start. We sampled most of the entrees and everyone was pleased! The Italian Kit Kat dessert was gone in seconds! We are so thrilled to have Birroteca back on our reservations list! Cheers and bravo to bursting back on to the scene on point!

Everything was delicious! Service was great. We sat at the bar and really enjoyed it. Perfect place for a date night! We loved the grilled calamari, pork belly, Brussels, and the duck fig pizza. The cocktails were excellent too. 10/10!

Birroteca has only be reopened for a few weeks and it is clear they need to get their footing back. Service was terribly slow and our appetizers came out cold. Even the DDG pizza wasn't very warm. Following dessert we had to practically beg for the check.

So glad it’s back. Service and food both great. Menu has been simplified a bit - but all the favorites are available as well as some new items. Excellent cocktails

My friend had come in to visit from out of town and thought we would get something casual to eat, like pizza. Our server was very appreciative of our visit, given the ongoing pandemic. He was the only shining detail of our meal. The meatball app and cauliflower side was good (the aioli was thick and heavy tho). The pizza was EXCEEDINGLY salty...I get that salumi is intrinsically salty, but the pizza and the sauce could have been adjusted for salinity; my date loved the crust, so he only ate the crust of 1/2 the pizza with the salumi picked off of it....whew
My cacio e pepe was a gray, also salty, glob of pasta noodles they was not delicious nor appealing to the eye. I cut it straight down the middle with the intent of taking half home...i had to use the butter knife it was so gelatinous...ended up only eating 1/4 of it; it was so inedible.
The chocolate covered red velvet white chocolate cheesecake and the goat cheese panna cotta was very good, as was the coffee.
Greatly disappointed. Not a great first impression for my friend.

I went with My husband for a date night and neither of us had been there before. We both ordered cocktails and they were delicious. At first glance the prices seemed kind of pricey but once we saw how big the portions were it made sense. Everything was absolutely delicious, but the one thing we were not 100% satisfied with with our pizza. The crust was very thin and did not feel homemade an hour margarita pizza had very little cheese. Two very important pieces for pizza. Also the dessert portion did not match the dinner portions and they were not nearly as big.

Steak tartare and pork belly were especially delectable - would order again (and again). Kale carrot salad was surprisingly lacking in comparison and broccoli rabe was undercooked, not bad but lacking in care and attention especially in comparison to starters.

Took out of town guests there for a unique experience at the high tops in the bar area. They thoroughly enjoyed the local beers and fab food - truly something for everyone and unique enough to be interesting.
The atmosphere is bustling , hip and stylish , noisy enough to have some energy , not too noisy to not enjoy our own company.

perfect spot, perfect evening

thank you

We went with friends for a date night and had an amazing experience! I’m GF and so I knew I’d have options, but there is something for everyone. We had something to eat from all sections of the menu and everyone had a great meal. The highlights were the calamari (perfectly cooked! Melt in your mouth tenderness), pork belly, and the Kit Kat dessert. Everything else (seafood pasta, pizza, Brussels, and beet salad) were wonderful as well. We will be back for sure. Birrotecca been around for a while now and for good reason!

One in our party of four has a severe nut allergy, so we talked to our waiter at length about options on the menu we could remove nuts from. Almost every dish we ordered had a caveat: without the hazelnuts, without the pistachios, etc. the roasted carrots however, came out on top of a dark (delicious) puree that appeared to be prunes and something else. Well, that something else was NUTS! Our friend had a severe reaction, and our waiter- instead of apologizing and offering our friend some sort of comp for the massive error, decided it was better to blame us for ordering something that wasn’t clear on the menu might have involved nuts. We asked him what was in the sauce, and he DID NOT KNOW. We asked him to please go to the kitchen and find out, since IF it was nuts, our friend would need to leave immediately to get his epi pen or the ER. He seemed annoyed to be asked to find out, and when he came back saying it was indeed nuts, our friend had already left to find some benadryl. So, although the food was excellent, the service was abysmal. And dangerous.

Went for Valentine’s Day. Keepin mind if you select high top you sit in the bar area which is still nice. Understandable we weren’t able to switch into the main dining area as there were a bunch of reservations. They did let us chose our high top table. Wee ordered a few different things. The crispy cauliflower was so delicious as were the meatballs (pictured). We also ordered the sweet potato pizza. It want what we expects and we didn’t enjoy it. The server gladly took it off the bill. great service!

We had dinner in the upstairs dining room on a Saturday around 5 - it was quiet at first but after about an hour more guests started to arrive. Food was great- started with mussels and some dipping bread- shared the sea bass dish for 2 which was delicious. After dinner we found 2 seats in the bar and had a after dinner drink. Bar was packed but it seemed quiet and very organized- everything seemed to flow smoothly. Great time - we will be back to try other dishes we saw being served in the bar
