    Bari was was wonderful as always! This is actually the first time I've been since the start of the pandemic, and oh how I've missed it! The food, of course, was delicious. There's so many good options, but the orecchiette stands out as one of my reliable favorites. The cocktail list, like the menu, changes from time to time, but is always quality. I had "The Old Sour" and it was very good. Hunter took care of us at the bar and the service was great!

    Bari is the best, only authentically Italian, restaurant in Memphis. If you’re looking for a dining experience like the one you had on vacation in Italy, Bari is the only place in a couple of hundred miles to get it.

    This was a special occasion meal and one of the best we have ever had at Bari. The food is always excellent here but tonight’s meal was extra special. We started with the soup special which was a roasted red pepper broth based soup - it was delicious. We both had the fish special which was black bass with a garlic pesto sauce and fried shallots - it was a spectacular preparation. We shared lemon mascarpone cheesecake for dessert. We were very comfortable with the restaurant’s safety measures and social distancing. Treat yourself to Bari - it’s a local gem.

    Bari has been one of our favorites for years. Their pasta is made on site and the staff know how to attain the perfect al dente texture for the dishes. Entrees are always excellent, particularly the seafood. Atmosphere is good for dates and small groups looking for a fun evening.

    Our 31st wedding anniversary celebration at Bari exceeded our already-high expectations. The food was creatively planned and executed beautifully, the wines were extraordinary, and the service was both warm and exceptional. This remains among the very best restaurants in the southeastern United States, and it is wonderful to see them continuing to safely deliver a wonderful experience in the middle of a pandemic.

    Bari is always a good bet for a date night or any evening you want to make special. Food is always fresh, menu is always creative and the service is always good. Bartender may be the most underrated in Memphis, as the cocktails are a delight. Bari is a little treasure that should be more popular, but I’m glad having it to myself.

We love the feel of the restaurant and they uphold all the Covid regulations to ensure a grand night out on the town . Thank you for creating such a special spot .
