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

I went here for a celebration dinner on a Monday night and ordered the tagliolini. It was nothing short of absolute perfection. I stayed in Venice a few months ago and the pasta there didn't compare. Gianluca Baroncini was out among the guests making conversation which was fun for us. It's always a treat when you get to meet the... More

Came in toward the end of the night to take my daughter for her birthday dinner after a wrestling meet. They were very accommodating and made us what we wanted off the menu. How great is that!?!?!

Delicious food in an intimate setting. It's very small so I would make a reservation. Large wine list. The Taleggio Flan starter is wonderful.

We ate at Baroncini for lunch on a Friday. What a great find! The restaurant is small but it's absolutely perfect. The wines are all Italian and they were fabulous. Our server, Amy, was great and spent time talking to us about the university as we were there on a campus visit. The food was great and just right lunch... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Iowa City. The owner chef from Verona, has really done a great job of creating a clientele for this restaurant. It has excellent food, service, good ambiance, of course, in the middle of downtown there is no view! It is really small, very cramped.
