La Barra - Riverside
We had a birthday celebration with 6 adults and 5 grandkids ages 2-7.... Marcelo was a great waiter and food was great... Tuesday was BOGO pizza which worked out great for kids... we recommend the bracciolle... our celebration couldn’t have been better!
The food is good. I had pasta taste it was delicious . The Drinks were on point not to strong well served. The prices on the menu are great I expected to be more expensive but it wasn’t. Great service polite workers. Veronica was our server she was awesome funny polite really good server.
MOTHER’S DAY DINNER FOR 8. WELL SEASONED WAITRESSES THAT CAN HANDLE SMALL CHILDREN AND FAMILY NEEDS. PERFECT EXPERIENCE.
LaBarra is the best overall restaurant in Riverside!!
Always a nice venue, service and food were great! We’ll be back.
Excellent service. Excellent food. Excellent environment
We loved LaBarra. The food was excellent and we loved our server Veronica. She was bubbly and sweet. I would highly recommend and we will definitely be back.
We had a very nice dinner. Really liked the food and our server. Loved the zucchini fritti and the bruschetta as starters. My husband had the whitefish and he requested capers which the kitchen happily added. I had the sliders which were very tasty. We always have a nice meal here and love the location and town.
Waitress was not good. Kept rushing off even in the middle of giving her our order.
Great! Bar was a bit loud, but there was a birthday party, and a divider between the bar and the main dining area was very helpful. Great food, great service. Will absolutely return!
Enjoy our neighborhood restaurant La Barra in Riverside. Great place to meet family and neighbors without having to drive too far. Food is great, wine selection is good. If I could change anything, it would be to add some form of noise control. At times, it can be very very noisey.
Been here for the Happy Hour bar seating several times and have enjoyed it. The food is delicious.
Very nice having Michelle back as bartender/server with suggestions
Got a table right away. Tony our server was very attentive. Food was delicious-I had salmon with risotto. Noise level was high but it was Saturday night.
Will definitely go again
Delicious food, friendly and efficient service, beautiful atmosphere, and easy parking!
Great Pizza and good ambiance. Friendly staff and conveniently located!
Michelle was outstanding!!!
Happy to see her back on Wednesday.
Waitress was attentive and quick
The food was delicious, we each had something different and enjoyed every mouthful.
Since our last visit about 6 months ago. there has been improvement. The food is tasty and it was served warm. However, the time to get our food (45 minutes) from the time we ordered, when only 3 other tables were occupied, was a bit too long. Our 2 grandsons were with us and they were disappointed that they could not get American cheese on their burgers. The fries were very good.
I would expect a better and more extensive Italian wine selection at a place like this.
With some fine tuning. this rating could move up to 4 stars. If you are in a hurry, order ahead.
Great Local Place, the food is good and the service is always spot on.
We booked this Restaurant last minute on open Table, and we
absolutely loved it! great service and food. Would definitely
recommend it to our friends.
This is such a wonderful place! The food is amazing, and the service is superb! We love coming here with our young kids! Everyone makes you feel so welcome!
Another great meal at La Barra. Sherry was awesome and Riverside needed a gathering spot like La Barra.
Great food and service. Prices were reasonable . Will certainly go back again.
My first time there and the food the excellent!! The service could have been better the server was not very attentive to our needs and did not get our order correct.
I took my family and friends to LaBarra’s Sunday for a celebration and we had a wonderful time and enjoyed the food tremendously! Everyone said everything tasted great. We loved the Calimari and octopus plate, the antipasto salad and the pizzas were delicious! Even my grandkids polished off their meals! Thank you for a delightful experience. Very nice waitress and bus boy too. And thank you to the owners who came to personally say hello and ask how things were!
Our favorite restaurant by far. Great service with a friendly family environment. After posting our Valentine's Day dinner many of my friends asked for the location. You'll be seeing a few new customers. Keep up the great work.
Only complaint would be the habitual drinkers at the bar...they take away from the atmosphere
After being seated on time, our waitress unfortunately did not find us for quite some time. The bracciole appetizer and grilled Caesar were quite good, but the Dante’s Margherita pizza did not come out for another 35-40 minutes (and no service in between), came out cold, and quite frankly looked and tasted nothing like it was described. While we ended up not having to pay for the pizza, leaving hungry (and waiting 15 minutes for the check) was very disappointing.
food was good, but it took almost an hour in between our appetizer and our main course.
I had an outstanding meal on Tuesday night.
Then we had an outstanding thin crust pizza .Very reasonably priced too.
We are definitely coming back.
Excellent meal! Attentive service!
Love Having such a quality restaurant in our town. Great food and wine with neighbors.
The Sea Bass was excellent and the entree Braciole was scrumptious! A gem in the neighborhood. Kitchen staff is the backbone! Waitstaff is their support!
Portions were small for the price! Calamari appetizer was very small portioned for its price.
The service was excellent! The shrimp scampi special and the walleye pike special was outstanding! Chgo style excellence in Riverside!
The food was delicious! Too cold in the room we were in, however.
Thank you for coming into town. The fennel as an option is wonderful. Only pizza aficionados get it. I am old, and get it. Only 2 competitors in the area, maybe 3, if I count the original Home Run in on a good day. Thin crust pizza the only type reviewed. Villa Nova is Stickney (believe it or not), and a place in the city called Vito and Nicks. Both super, and both have really ugly, old school decor. Doesn’t make any difference, pizza is great. Riverside Foods carry’s Vito and Nicks in the frozen section. Not bad, had it once. Fresh is the only way to fly. Thanks again for opening a restaurant here in Riverside. Not much in the way of exceptional food nearby. Riverside Resturant is probably the best for Czech Slovak food. Pork dishes, and especially duck are top of the line. Also, you won’t believe the prices. There are also 1002 Mexican restaurants. The best is New Rebozza on Madison St. in Oak Park. You have to have the Carne asada and their chocolate jalapeño ice cream. One of Pacos famous Mole sauces will also put a smile on your face. Paco is quite the host. Thanks again, John Havlick Go Celtics
Food was delicious Pizza is excellent some entrees are very small portions. Noise level is too high
