Pleasant place, however the service was just passable. We were there over 2 hours & the waiter only passed by once to see if we needed anything. As we sat there visiting,we did order coffee & waited for someone to start clearing the table which didn’t happen until we were leaving. Won’t be going back anytime soon.

I had inquired about outdoor seating. When we got seated, it was a completely enclosed patio. That is not what I had expected. I didn’t feel that it had been made clear that “open air” seating was in fact completely enclosed. Always love coming to la barra. Always love the food and service. But highly disappointed with your idea of “open air” seating. It would’ve been better if I had been told upfront that open air is not currently available.

A wonderful evening with excellent food and our wait person was fabulous! The ricotta with honey is so tasty and the Sicilian salad was exceptional. Lots of bread and wine and oh yes, the goat cheese appetizer was great! We did appetizers and dessert this time. Can’t wait to eat here again.
The carrot cake and chocolate gelato shouldn’t be missed!

Love this fine establishment and the warm and friendly atmosphere!!

We were spaced out, there was plexiglass, and we felt very safe eating indoors. Our server was wonderful and had great recommendations for us. She brought water before we could even ask and was anticipating all of our needs. The ambiance was good - lively, but we were able to talk easily because of the way they spaced customers out. We will be back!

The food was very bland from the appetizers to the meals themselves. No flavor at all. The server was very polite and helpful and the pineapple martini was amazing . The temperature was a little chilly and we were sitting in the inside part of the restaurant. I definitely would not be going back anytime soon.

Good was really good with one exception, I had grilled skirt steak and it was very tough. I realize skirt is a tough cut but make it at home a lot and it could have been better. The gnocchi was fantastic! Drinks and apps we're fantastic as well.

My husband and I, with our 7 year old in tow, celebrated our wedding anniversary on a Tuesday evening at La Barra. Our server Doreen was attentive, pleasant and especially kind to our chatty daughter. The food was well made and delicious, leaving us with ample left overs to bring home (which heated nicely the following day). We enjoyed the garlic knots, meatballs, chicken parmigiana and the fillet. As a special treat, our server offered complementary dessert - the Tiramisu - which was perfectly decadent. We look forward to another dining experience at La Barra.

Food was less than memorable. Bread was good, but cold. Considering they are known for their bread, one would think it would be freshly baked or warmed. It was cold. We had one dinner salad and one seafood salad. The dinner salad was so soggy, like it had been prepared earlier that day and sat in the refrigerator. Very little seasoning. It took several times with the waitress to find out if they had blue cheese crumbles, which she didn't think they had. She did come back w blue cheese crumbles. Seafood salad was extremely small for the price. The seafood was pretty good, but again would have benefited from seasoning and some salt! Both salads were woefully under seasoned, especially the salt. We split a rigatoni w bolognese, which was actually very good. Limited wine list, house chardonnay was not good. The only other chardonnay was $19 a glass, but was much better. Service was not great. Waitress was not very friendly or helpful. Will not be going back. Much better restaurants in the area with comparable prices, with a better wine list.

Food wasn’t amazing. We had to replace one of the dishes we ordered. It was tasteless. There was no social distancing, all patio tables were full and patio was closed no open windows.
