It was great food and loved how we were next to the fireplace and outside pond view. Customer service was not great. Pretty upset since I celebrated a birthday.

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.

The food was excellent, had the Braciole as an appetizer, which is braised short rib over polenta. Pizza is delicious, I’ve had both the Artisan and the deep dish. Will be back!

La Barra does not disappoint in the delicious menu options to the service! It is by far my favorite restaurant. I never hesitate to take friends and family there to celebrate special occasions or just have a GREAT pizza. I love the small plate menu choices and seating on the terrace. We love the deep dish Danny’s special with Burrata! For small plates try the calamari, Burrata, or polenta. I highly recommend.

I was a bit shocked to see a bar with people in every seat and no social distancing.

I was a little hesitant to book a reservation, wondering how cold it would be in the indoor / outdoor enclosed patio. We were pleasantly surprised at how comfortable they made it for us. Tables were spaced nicely with heaters every few feet. A fireplace was near making it all the better. It wasn't busy, as we went fairly early, but service was great. Attentive, yet gave us space to dine without constant intrusions. We ordered the sausage and peppers, salad, and a small pizza. All were excellent. Bread was provided in a basket for every table. I would certainly dine here again and would order my same choices. Excellent!!

The out door patio was perfect. Heated and comfortable considering how cold it was the evening we were there. Beats any tented outdoor dining.

Great service. We enjoyed our drinks but not so much on food. Food was either overcook or too salty. Seafood Linguine was very sloppy and way too overcook. We only ate the seafood.

I like the food and taste
Nice out sitting covered patio
There was a fire pit and it was very dirty glass screen we couldn’t even see the fire to enjoy ourselves
Service was horrible, we waited like 15 minutes to order a new bottle. 9.45 they bring check and they said we are closing 10pm period. They didn’t bring deserts because I asked them 9.40pm
I told our waiter it says 11 pm closing time
They said no I m mistaken..
Nice place to hang out but management they need to improve ASAP

We went on a Wednesday night, and to our surprise our server informed us bottles of wine were half price! We were seated on the heated patio and they sat us next to the fireplace which was really nice. Food was great and so was our server!!!

Had good food and good environment! the only thing that sucked was that they didn't honor my request left in the notes regarding a birthday - they didn't mention or do anything at all so left me confused on why they give the option to place a request in the first place. Also they didn't turn on the heaters till we were leaving so :( but overall the food was delicious and our waiter was super friendly.

We have been fans for years! Food was great as usual! Service was Ok, not great. We will not be able to go back, they increased the price of a peroni tap pint to $8! Totally unacceptable. Even in downtown Chicago a Pint never goes for more than $6! That’s what they used to charge. I get that they are trying to “make up” for lost business/revenue but that’s not how you do it! $9.00+ for a draft beet with tax and tip. Trying to support our favs but not a this cost. Would be surprised if they make it.
