Enjoyed every minute! The food was great! Delicious and delicate. An exciting taste of burrata with smoked salmon. Linguine with Tartufo took us back to the best restaurants in Italy. The Tiramisu was incredible light. Great selection of Italian wines. Wonderful service with a lot of personal touch. Tutto perfetti!

Welcomed on arrival and Covid certified. Table attractively set and offering banquet seating for two/two with chairs on outer side. The restaurant was busy and if anyone visiting has a hearing aid or has tinnitus, this will be a challenge.

Starters and main course were excellent, served in good time and plated well. The flavours pleased all of us - who all ordered individually. Only set back was the gap between main course and coffees/dessert. We had to re-order after more than 30 minutes which meant one of our party had to leave before us. Management/staff were honest about cause of delay. This was appreciated; we had such a lovely time and the food was so good we will be back again very soon!

From the very warm welcome, to the goodbyes, our experience in Bar Italia was 1st class. A shared starter of bruschetta with buffalo mozzarella and a tomato confit was delicious. Pasta Cacio e Pepe and tagliatelle with bolognese were the mains and delicious also. What really made the day was the feeling of safety and comfort in the outside space to the front of the restaurant, and the very attentive and non intrusive service from Kevin and his staff. Great place and looking forward to repeating the experience

Lovely Briuschetta to start and homemade pasta ai frutti di mare for main. Yummy. Good wine list but on the pricey side. The Troia wine was very good.

We all had spaghettoni, 2 seafood and one cacio e pepe, with a grilled vegetable starter. It was very tasty and filling. Service was attentive, although there was a large table nearby.

The food and service were good, however we had a special request to have a table close to the window, instead, the table given was completely different, in the downstairs. This affected our experience in a negative way. Still, we recommend the restaurant as the service and food is good.

Hey guy,

Though the food was delicious, it was a bit salty. I enjoyed my dinner, and I look forward to going again.

I definitely recommended it, outstanding!
