Have eaten here many times over the years. The food is always delicious and the service is amazing. It was our first time eating out since lockdown and it could not have been a better experience.

Lovely place, really clean, nice tables, great social distancing, great sanitising.
Delicious clam spaghetti, really tasty. Roasted veg bruchetta was OK, I added a lot of salt to enhance flavour, calamari bruchetta a lot tastier. Good selection of wine, really enjoyed our lunch.

My friend and I had an absolutely fabulous time here! The desert wine was beyond delicious, the food was nice enough however I wasn’t blown away. The waiters were very attentive, patient and friendly. I loved the atmosphere and the soft music in the restaurant. It was a great experience overall I would highly recommend.

The team was very welcoming, the atmosphere was very nice, complying to the current restrictions.
Regarding the food, we loved the entry but the portion for the main was too much, it would be nice to have smaller plate, it would mean less waste.

Nice spot in the city.
Tasty food, brilliant service and good price for 2 course menu.
Myself and my husband had pizza and calzone both meals were so much flavour.
For dessert we both had chocolate caramel fondant: delicious!
Nice complimentary glass of prosecco at the start.
Best recommendations!

hi Micky, i was trying to reconcile your review with your bill so to have more details, as nothing has changed since a while here.. I cannot see anybody on the book with similar name, the only one is a cancellation. I d like really to improve, so i take every poor review seriously especially from regular customer like you say you are. Can u mail me privately at info@baritalia.ie ? I'd really appreciate it and i'd thank you. Hope to hear from u soon and to turn around your experience. David Izzo

Enjoyable meal, fine service. Tasty food. A little disappointed to be seated downstairs which while pleasant and quiet lacked the atmosphere of main room upstairs where we had dined before. Will go again to one of my preferred restaurants but will ask clarify whether up or down stairs!

Food was terrible - asked for portion of garlic bread for child got one piece of rock hard bread with garlic butter on it. I would not serve food like that to anyone. Way overpriced. very disappointing.

hi Ms Sheila, i m so disappointed to read your review. Customer satisfaction is paramount in Bar Italia especially in these strange times. You guys had 1 bruschetta, 2 pizza( one with fresh truffle) and 1 spaghetti with seafood. All dishes were completely finished and we checked with your party 3 times while you were there and you always have said positive feedback. We dont use butter here and i can agree that our crusty sourdough bread may be not suitable to young children. If we were told.....
