A for Effort

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... read 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!

I think this is a quality restaurant, but I believe it is overpriced. The service was great - personable and kind. The food was delicious, but not out of this world. Having lived and traveled to cities like Portland, OR, Seattle, where great food isn't always expensive it is hard to fork out this much cash for a plate of... More

I was in town to visit family and wanted to go to a nice dinner on my last night in town. They suggested Baroncini and I wasn't disappointed. Probably one of the best meals I have ever had. We shared a couple entrees and they were all top notch. Chef came to the table and was a pleasure to talk... More

Baroncini is a restaurant that knows what it is doing. A pleasant setting with absolutely professional service of the highest order, a tempting menu and wine list, and, most of all, every bite was a delight. Delicious breads were house-made; even the olive oil dip was just a bit special. I had the best carpaccio I've ever had; my husband... More

My mother and I were driving through Iowa on our way to Des Moines from Chicago and stopped for dinner. We thought Baroncini's looked promising, right off Washington street downtown and were not disappointed. We were able to get a table for two without reservation or a long wait at 7:30 pm on a Thursday night, which I appreciated after... More

Me an my wife were long overdue for a date night and I decided to give Baroncini a try. We were able to show up and get a table right away without a reservation. The ambiance in the place is very cozy and romantic. The waitress was very attentive and I ordered some Bruschetta for appetizer. Unfortunately the Bruschetta took... More
