    Wait staff is very nice and accommodating. Pasta is great as are the chicken and fish dishes. They don’t rush you and we had a lovely evening. This is the place we like to bring friends for a consistently good, well priced meal.

    I had a small dinner (no alcohol) and felt it was terribly overpriced. My meal was only lukewarm and our waiter was fairly uncooperative. I’d like to frequent this lovely neighborhood spot, but doubt I’ll be returning.

    Wonderful chicken livers , and Pansotti! Only suggestion is that red wine should be a little chilled in summertime ; the temperature is very important to the taste. I love this restaurant and it’s one of my favorite dining experiences in NYC!

    Very nice neighborhood place. Good service and ambiance. Appetizers(fegatini)and dessert were very good. Unfortunately we had 4 veal dishes and the veal was tough and of poor quality. Will definitely go again but won’t order the veal

    Interesting menu with delicious food and good sized portions. Service was prompt and friendly but a bit rushed. Numerous specials recited by server. Would have preferred a separate insert to the menu to peruse. A good local gem when I’m in the area. The chocolate mousse cake is a real winner and the veal was tender.

    We had luncheon at an outside table on a perfect afternoon. The accompanying relish for the bread is delicious… a mixture of sun dried tomatoes, salt, pepper, olive oil and anchovies was the brightest red and incredible. We chose pasta entree. DH got linguini with clams. The clam were the Manila variety and there was a lot of garlic, exactly as we like. I chose a pasta, triangular shaped stuffed with spinach and ricotta and a walnut cream sauce. It was perfect. We had no room for dessert but hope to visit again.

    This is always a great dining room. Staff are friendly and attentive but not informal. The choice of specials almost equals the number of tables and the regular menu offers a good selection as well. Its hard to get sweetbreads but this dish is prepared to perfection with a generous portion. The house wines are well above average and moderate. Cocktails are on the high side but well prepared.

    If you want a good, solid, predictable Italian meal, this is your place. Does not stun you but doesn't disappoint you either. It reeks UES and that is a good thing because standards are high. I wish the wine list was a bit more comprehensive, but there still something for everybody.

    Barbaresco NEVER disappoints. Charlie and Johnnie have always made me and my guests feel welcomed and valued. We went this time to celebrate the birthday of my brother-in-law and it was superb—as I expected! I am thrilled that Barbaresco has survived the pandemic and I look forward to my next return visit to NYC to see my friends at Barbaresco. Bravo! Bravissimo!

    3 out of 4 of us thought the food was okay. The person who ordered veal didn't like his meal. He said it was tasty, but the veal seemed to be chopped or something, not the usual texture of veal. Two others tried a bite and agreed with him. I would recommend it at lunch time when it's quieter and I would warn against ordering the veal.
