Both the cuisine and service were outstanding. Probably the best Italian food that I've had. We drove nearly 70 miles for this meal and it was more than worth the effort.

Food was overpriced and mediocre at best and we were placed at a table less that a foot away from the people next to us.

We had not dined here for many years. The quality was excellent and the dishes creative and approachable. Good cocktail and wine list. Exceptional server. Seasonal specials that added to the variety. A very quaint and cozy place -- the only "downside" is the seating is a bit tight. Will definitely return to this neighborhood gem.

Dinner here get's a "10/10 would recommend" from us-- not only was the staff helpful and friendly, with great suggestions on what to order, but the food was the best I've had in years. The ravioli was absolutely melt-in-your-mouth delicious, as was the duck pasta: the homemade noodles were soft and light, and the sauces and flavors were rich but not overdone. I'd also recommend the salted caramel creme pot for dessert. As an added bonus, wine bottles under $100 are half-off on Mondays and Tuesdays, so you can really go all out without breaking the bank. Bartolotta has a cozy atmosphere, so whether you dress up or keep things more casual you'll feel right at home. We came for our anniversary, and left eagerly awaiting the next special occasion that warrants a return visit!
