Always good, nice menu!

We have dined at this restaurant many times over the years and it is a favorite! A fun menu including a fennel salad, good variety of pastas and nice array of main dishes allow nice choices for repeat visits. The service is always adequate and this last visit was the same. Nothing special, had to... read more

A group in town for a business meeting ate at Bar Italia. This was a true find in St. Louis. Although much of the attention for Italian dining centers on The Hill, I found Bar Italia one of the best Italian restaurants in St. Louis. We began with a number of appetizers that focused on traditional Italian fare. They were... More

This place gets rave reviews, but I think the problem on the night I was there is that they had a wine/food pairing going on in another room that seemed to take up most of the staff time. Our food was so-so. The waiter was nice, but seemed bored. I was out with an old friend from college, and we... More

We looked for a city breakfast spot on way to the Fox Theater. Bar Italia, in the Central West End, was open and the location is lovely. We would have opted for outside but it was a little too windy. (There are a few tables on sidewalk.) The staff was friendly, welcoming despite the fact we arrived just as restaurant... More

I love the location of this restaurant in Forest Park. They do have outdoor seating available, although we ate inside. I had the mushroom risotto and it was fabulous and rich. My husband ordered a steak and it was just average, as was the bread. Desserts were wonderful and they have a nice wine selection.

We had eaten at Bar Italia a couple of times previously and each time the meal and the service was very good; unfortunately, our last meal there wasn´t the best and they did not have mussels for the Linguine alla Cozze which is why we had gone in the first place. It was lunch time and although there weren´t many... More

Our group of 8 were there to hear the good music on the patio. I had the special pork chop with interesting vegetables. Most of the people had the special fish which they all thought was excellent. Our waiter was very good and the owner stopped by our table a couple of times. Both were super friendly! Not much protection... More

One of their chicken entrees was among the best I have ever tasted. The chicken was topped with a delicious sauce served over mashed potatoes with vegetables. Parking is on street with meters.

Bar Italia has one of the most charming patios in St. Louis. The food is spectacular with great friendly service. You never feel rushed and the check is never brought until it is asked for. I highly recommend the muscles for appetizer. One order is plenty for two. All of the entrees will please your palate. This should be your... More
