High price for not the the best tasting food. Won't be going there again or recommending the place.
The Italian beef pizza was perfect, definitely one of my favorites. Chocolate fudge cake was not fresh at all. Will stay away from that cake.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at La Barra, Riverside. The food was excellent, great options. We had a variety of dishes and were pleased with each dish. The Braciole was tender and flavorful. The whitefish entree was cooked just right. We shared the calamari, meatballs and zucchini strings, and receive high marks. The staff was friendly and accomodating. We will definitely be back.
I love the chicken parm! It’s the best! Also I enjoy their beet salad and fried calamari. I have eaten here many many times and never had a bad meal no matter what I have had. Their Danny’s deep dish pizza if the best! A little on the expensive side but so worth it!
Very good food and service.
It's really getting better ! We are amazed. After several disappointing meals, it seems that this
restaurant is starting to do a good job ! We only have gone back because it's close and our grandsons like it.
We like it now too. Not fantastic, but decent.
As always, a great experience.
Delicious food !!! Our server Particia was more than wonderful. Great family place ! Will come back !!!
Good food! Great Pizza! Delightful owners! Will definitely he back.
We’ve been here a lot. Service by Juan was outstanding! Calamari was awesome. Everyone enjoyed their entrees. My only suggestion would be to serve red wine by the glass at correct temp which is not room temp if the room is 72. Thanks.
After play celebration
We ordered the braciole and goat cheese appetizers. The braciole was phenomenal. Cocktails and service were great as well. We will definitely be back.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review of our restaurant. Our Chef Pepe Martinez makes the best Braciole ever! We look forward to see you again soon.
Food was delicious. Our server, Patty, was quite friendly and helpful. Never rushed us through dinner. Crowded, fun environment. Great evening.

The Tuesday special deal is not to be missed! Food was delicious, the service was excellent. What a wonderful dining experience on a weeknight!
We're ecstatic that you had a great experience at our restaurant. Thanks for getting the word out about our Tuesday pasta/pizza BOGO deal. And - you're right - it is not to be missed!
I’ve been here several times and I’m never disappointed with either the food or the service. It’s one of my favorite places 😊
Great food and wonderful staff!
We love LaBarra!! Great atmosphere, great food and friendly faces. Alway entertainment on Thursday nights which is also a plus.
Great food and service...apps were all amazing as well!
Service was great and the food was amazing as always! The old fashioned from the bar was also on point. Overall an awesome dining experience.
We had an excellent evening. The food was outstanding, especially the steak sliders. Great entertainment and atmosphere. Highly recommended!
Excellent pizza, delicious whitefish and tasty scallops made for a wonderful evening. Server Ruben was most efficient!
Always great food (disappointed they were out of my favorite bbq pie pizza but they have lots of other great options). First time for our friends and they really enjoyed it and will be a repeat for them and soon also regulars.
Bit over priced, for neighbor restaurant limited menu, claims small plates but only small plates are appetizers
NYE and it was great.
We had an amazing Christmas Eve dinner experience ❤️💕🎄
Great service, great food and drinks. We will definitely be back. A wonderful neighborhood find!!
I am usually there as a party of 2 and rarely make reservations, but this time I needed a reservation for 3. Of course, we wound up with 4. They accommodated us with ease. Waiter (Marcelo—forgive my spelling) was phenomenal as always. When he recommends a new combination (exchanging sides) we will always follow his advice. It improves an already good meal to a great meal! So glad LaBarra is in the neighborhood.
I had the fruta de mare it was outstanding I’ll be back for that dish again! Our waiter was a little pushy we felt rushed. Overall it was great!
Only complaint is the noise level, very very noisy. And the restaurant was even full. Hard to talk with friends. Food and service were awesome.
Great food! Delicious pizza and the gluten free pizza crust is great. Our go to place! Highly recommend for every day or special occasions. It’s a lively restaurant. 😀
LaBarra is a very stylish venue, food always excellent, we had a wonderful time visiting with friends at an event Tuesday. The only downside was the noise level. Six of us sat at a round table towards the back of the restaurant near the 2 seater booths. We had to shout across the table to be heard. Someone at our table said a couple baffles would help reduce the noise , as there was so many big windows and nothing to absorb the din.
Enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere! I will be back.
Food and service were awesome - great dining experience!
Excellent food and service tonight!
Our server Juan did a great job
