Absolutely Delightful!

Last night my husband and I had a wonderful dinner at Baroncini. It's a small Italian restaurant only seating 49 people, so be sure to make a reservation before you go.

My family of 4 spent $400 at this Iowa City restaurant that was average at best. We did really enjoy the wine they suggested but the restaurant was far too expensive for Iowa City especially since the food isn't that good.

The food was delicious. A little on the pricey side, but the owner/chef came out and asked me how it was, so that was a big plus. Very elegant.

This is THE Italian restaurant in Iowa City. Great menu, great service, great food and wine. Good variety on the menu and everything I've tasted was absolutely delicious. Love the atmosphere, but the tables are a bit crowded together along the banquette. I thought the trick was to have a reservation, but we were seated here once when we had... More

By far the best "authentic" Italian restaurant in Iowa City. Reservations strongly suggested as there is limited seating. Great wait staff. Excellent wine list. Parking is difficult near the restaurant and there is no valet parking here.

Although this a perfect, quaint date spot, I visited Baroncini by myself since I am staying in town for a conference. The service by Dre was impeccable. She was knowledgable and suggested the truffled mushroom linguini to accompany my glass of Montepulciano. It was divine. The hostess and the other server were also attentive and pleasant. The marscapone cheesecake was... More

Whenever I return to Iowa I fret a little about food. One can only eat so many Maidrites. We were weary and Baroncini was steps from our hotel. Our entrees were fantastic (lasagna and a penne with Gorgonzola and pancetta). Baroncini has no qualms about serving tomatoes in June, so under-ripe halved cherries appeared on the bruschetta, penne and salad.... More

We spent a couple of nights in IC, and ate at Baroncini our first night. We just stumbled upon it and were seated without a problem on a Friday night. They seated us at a table in the bar, which was fine with us. The decor is fantastic and the lighting is perfect. Our food was delicious and the service... More

the absolute best Italian food in Iowa! I spent 3 months in Italy - and this is the only place that makes me feel like I'm there again! Worth every penny!
