This local neighborhood haunt churns out thin, hand tossed pizzas as well as scratch made pasta variations from love. Testa Barra re-images what modern Italian cuisine is, with a twist! Under the leadership of Jeffrey Baldwin, Director of Operations & Sommelier, our beverage program is an offering of a contemporary infusion cocktail bar. Testa Barra marries classic cocktails with innovative flavors, fresh herbs and squeezed juices to create innovative libations. Sommelier Brian Herbon has co-authored the wine menu consisting of old world and new temptations of flavors.

We actually left after standing there for a few minutes. It was so loud we could not have a conversation.

Our server was amazing and was attentive but gave us plenty of time to chat and eat. The appetizers were yummy and it was wine Wednesday so win win!

No one there knows how to use Open Table, they either cancel your reservation or mark you as a no show. This has happened my last two times there. Our food took two hours to come out and we were told 2 more minutes and it was more like 10-15 more. Definitely still some logistical issues to work out.
