Great Portugese food.

Love this place. Had the shrimp Mozzambique and we ordered an extra bowl of sauce and all of us sat there and dunked our Portugese rolls in this deliciousness. Service a bit slow, but waitress is very helpful and cheerful.

The Pork Alentejana was rubbery and tough! The broth was also a yellowish broth which I've never had before. It didn't taste very good. The rest... More

Portugal colonized many areas of the world and the exotic variety of Barcello's Portuguese food reflects this: the menu features wonderful dishes from Portuguese colonies in Asia, South America and Europe as well as everyday American dishes such as Lemon Meringue pie. The restaurant itself is clean, light and airy--it has the feel of a place whose owners are proud... More
