We both had Italian dishes-one penne vodka w chicken and one pasta e fagoli. Also one order of 2 fish tacos. Fish tacos ok, but two Italian dishes not as well as what we have had here before. Is the real intent toget rid of Pizzico people are being sent away. Hope not.
Just a wonderful evening. Highly recommend and will return often.
Excellent Food and friendly service. Thank You
This is the second time I have been to this restaurant and I am underwhelmed. My son was perfectly happy with his burger and my daughter with her stuffies and crab cakes. I ordered the scallops and asked that they leave out the tomatoes and substitute any other vegetable. No sub which was not a big deal but only 3 scallops which isn't much of a main course for $27.00. My husband had the salmon and thought it was okay but it was supposed to include white beans in the dish and there weren't any. Our waiter did bring out some after he asked but the service was very slow on a night when empty tables were visible. It's a nice but not remarkable restaurant and I can get a much better value elsewhere.
The food, the ambiance, the service are good. Food is really authentic and nice present. The Oysters were fresh and really good.
The East Bay Oyster bar is Pizzico re-badged. The ownership remains the same. They apparently felt that having two restaurants with the same name was problematic so made a change. The menu was pretty much the same as the previous Pizzico with a few oyster themed add-ons. I had the lobster poutine. Ok, I tried it because it sounded a bit bizarre and, in fact, it was. Some how lobster, goat cheese and french fires with a white sauce just didn't work as poutine but I give them credit for trying. My guests had much more standard dishes and loved them. Needs a bit more re-branding work but remains a good Barrington dining staple.
First time visit. Very enjoyable looking forward to going back. Very interesting combinations of flavors and dishes. Nice quiet atmosphere for conversation. Good service.
Great food a bit over priced
Had a gift certificate for East Bay Oyster Bar. Had heard good reviews so we were looking forward to our visit. The experience exceeded our expectations. We had a decently priced bottle of wine and delicious dinners. We started with the Pear/Gorgonzola salad which was split for us (plenty for 2). I had the Thai Salmon and my husband had the Chicken Parm. Both equally yummy!! Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. We will definitely be back!!
First time at this location...I've been to Pizzico on Hope St. many times. I enjoyed the different atmosphere & the menu was great -lots of good choices. I especially enjoyed the use of local food (farm to table). Looking forward to going again. I've already passed the word on to my other foodie friends & family.
