    Barano was great! All of the food is fresh and homemade...we ate pesto bread, meatballs, rice balls, grilled octopus, tie dye pizza, prosciutto wrapped asparagus, chicken milanese, fresh mozzarella and cavatelli pasta. The staff was super friendly and competent. Great spot and will be returning.

    Wow, my first time at Barano and I absolutely loved it! They were extremely accommodating and had tons of gluten free options. The food was excellent and fairly priced. It was mine and my partner’s anniversary and they gave us two desserts on the house! I will definitely be recommending this spot to everyone!

    A great, though somewhat inconsistent, choice for a meal with friends. We ordered the Vodka Pizza, which was marvelous—creamy, sweet, balanced, and so easy to eat. The star of the evening was the Saffron Gigli. You need to order it. It was aromatic and complex, with perfectly cooked pasta, a touch of sweetness and heat. The lamb pasta, however, was serviceable at best, and it tasted like nothing more than lamb. The only redeeming quality was that the pasta itself was properly cooked. The broccolini was nicely roasted, but it was overall much too salty. Some of the items are absolutely stellar, and others are disappointing. Stick to the tried and true and you’ll have a wonderful evening.

    The space is nice, but not extraordinary. The dishes, on the other hand, WERE extraordinary. The Caesar was dressed perfectly, with pillows of Parmesan. We had Burrata with mushrooms—sautéed just so. And the bucatini Nero was delicious. I love that the shrimp was served tails off, btw. We had good service, as well. I asked about a wine I wasn’t familiar with, and decided to order it after hearing the waitress’ description. Even still, she offered me a taste before pouring.

    Food was really good and unique, especially the like aioli and the potato dipping sauce. Customers at the adjacent table were noisy/rude and the waitress kind of stopped coming over eventually which led us to skip dessert.

    We did restaurant week. The appetizers: Cacio e Pepe arancini balls—they were ok but not memorable Salad—too much onion. Mains: Pizza: appreciated the quantity of sauce Spaghetti: appreciated the quantity of sauce Dessert: Canoli: filling was great, the shells I think were a little over cooked Olive Oil Cake: cake was too dry. I wish there was more of the ricotta spread. We didn’t finish this.

    The arancini are fantastic, gluten free pizza does not taste GF, and the pastas were delish. Each component of the Branzino dish was excellent, just a little too busy altogether. But otherwise, outstanding as always.

    My partner and I chose Barano to introduce our families for the first time over brunch and it was a wonderful experience. We had friendly and attentive staff who were accommodating to our large party and everyone enjoyed the food. Also, both of our mothers have hearing impairments do we specifically chose a restaurant that wouldn’t be too loud and crazy and Barano was the perfect mix of a calm but beautiful atmosphere. Highly recommend!

    Food was very good. Branzino was as good as any I've had in italy, north or south. However we came for the tasting and were told by the server and manager, that it probably would not be enough for a meal and we should also order entrees after, i mean wtf. Real bad vibe barano. Also we were rushed, as we sat at 6:55 and were out the door by 7:50. That includes drinking a bottle of vino.

    Really disappointed in our meal. Everything fell just short of being good. Too much over or under seasoning, overcooked squid, mushy noodles and random hard veggies throw in to the pasta dishes like we were toddlers.
