The staff was very attentive, the food was excellent, the portions were large, but the dining room was very loud.

We arrived at 4:30 on a Sat.. They were not at all ready for guests. There wasn't a soul in the place yet it took 5 min to figure out there was one table available... Ok. It took a while for our server to come over to us.. I inquired about the specials but wasn't given them because the cook... More

Pass by all the pizza joints and enjoy real Italian Restuarant with great service. Bruschetta was great. Very fresh. Malbec wine at good price. Eggplant generous enough for two. Take your student here for a civilized meal but may be a bit pricey for the student budget.

I went with my husband for an anniversary dinner. The service started out fine. The waiter was cordial but not overly endearing. However, the service became worse (for me) as the meal went on. Once the meals were delivered, the waiter never spoke to me, or looked at me again, unless I forced him to. He offered my husband refills... More

The food was just average and the cost was very high. The restaurant is in an old house so it is cozy and inviting but food doesn't measure up to cost.

My most recent trip here was for lunch and it was good!!! I had the seafood dish and ordered it fra diablo and it was great. The mussels and calamari was cooked wonderfully. We sat on the roof top deck and it was a perfect sunny day. I can't wait to get back for some more delish food.

We were a party of 7 going out to celebrate my daughter's graduation from SUNY Albany. It is a great location if you are visiting the campus, being just across the street. Everything was perfect. The food was delicious and plentiful.

We are visiting this restaurant tonight for the third time in less than four months. I don't know why it took me so long to write a review. Each visit to the restaurant our food experience has been perfect. The seafood dishes are just wonderful. My wife and I have had the salmon, swordfish and red snapper dishes. Each dish... More

We recently had dinner here. I found the food under seasoned, but it was healthful. I had salmon Barcelona, which came with a salad. The warm bread with dipping sauce was good, as was the tres leches dessert. Service was fine.

I had heard from a few people that Barcelona was pretty good but I still didn't have high expectations just because of its location. Its a very good restaurant though, the food is excellent, great menu, I especially like the Veal Daniel. The service can be a little slow so don't go there in a hurry but the food more... More
