Authentic fine Italian dining. Incredible food selection with a wide array of daily specials. Don’t see it on the menu? They’ll find a way to make it for you. Unbelievably friendly and prompt service.

There’s a cool little bar in the entryway with a duet expertly singing an eclectic selection of classics. Not too loud; just right for the venue.

I will most definitely be back. Great food, great service, great vibe. Awesome!!!

My wife, daughter and I dined at this place for the first time on Mother's Day. We were anxious to try it since it has received rave reviews. The food and service was good, but I felt we were rushed through the meal. This is not what I expected considering the hype and the prices they charge. The other downside was the dining room was rather crowded with misbehaved children and parents who didn't care. In any event, I would probably give it another chance when it is less crowded. Bareli's menu is loaded with interesting dishes I would love to try.

I love this restaurant. I have dined there about six times over the past few years when I visit the area on business. I always take clients and they enjoy it as well. It's NJ, but feels a bit like old New York. At any time, I expect the ghost of Frank Sinatra to walk in. Contemporary, with a touch of nostaglia.

It’s been a number of years since I last enjoyed Bareli’s wonderful food and atmosphere. I had friends up here from the Caribbean and promised them a great Italian meal. Bareli’s did not disappoint. Great food and great service. I personally need to go back more frequently..

I had the pleasure of dining at Bareli's, for what was supposed to be lunch, but turned into an early dinner. I met Tommy and Liam as my hosts and they were terrific and most hospitable. The pork chop was better than any I've every had and the oysters were excellent! 5 star experience.

Everything was great, minus our server. My date and I ordered a bottle of wine, appetizer, 2 entrees, and desserts (all delicious). One might think this would warrant pretty good service; however, our server paid no attention to us once we got our entrees. He was more interested in the table of 6 next to us and we ended up with an empty table and empty glasses for a good 20 min. before he checked up on us. I’m not one to complain, especially in busy restaurants but this really compromised our experience.
