This is a quaint and beautiful restaurant perfect for a date night Reliable service and delicious food. Both meals my husband and I shared are some of the best and most creative Italian dishes we have tried. The spinach gnocchi was perfect in texture and taste. Only complaint was the small portion sizes for all three courses. If you are... More

Very pleasant atmosphere. Noise level is quite acceptable for a private conversation. Wine list is rich but wines offered are quite expensive (Could not find a red below $39/bottle... A Barbera d'Asti that proved to be delicious). Good food (I personally recommend the pork chop with string beans with morrels -- outstanding). Portions are not large, but plenty sufficient, given...

Craving good Italian after a week's cruise, we had the good fortune to stumble into Branzino. Tiffany was delightful as our waiter, serving up a delicious wine- "final final" by Efeste, fresh house greens, incredible octopus - on puttanesca topped w basil salsa verde - and a thin crust pizza - salami, mushroom peach . Topped off with a yummy... More

My wife and I recently spent a Tuesday evening here. I'm no expert in Italian food, (I wouldn't have been able to tell you what Branzino is), but I can say for certain that Branzino's has got it right. I had the gnocchi verde. The highlight for me was the cream sauce with wild mushroom. my wife had seared scallops... More

Our meal tonight was amazing. Appetizers were the house salad and the cheese plate. For dinner we had the Oven Roasted Branzino fish and it was amazing and filleted right at the table! We also got the Pappardelle Bolognese. I cannot even begin to describe how yummy this was, you just need to order it and experience it. It will... More

The four of us met up with another couple and the staff managed to pull enough tables together so that we could eat outside. I appreciated their effort. The food was very good and those that had mixed drinks praised them as well. The location was close to the hotel El Gaucho, so that made it quite convenient for us.

The small restaurant comfort, the house wine, the entres, and the service are a\ways so good I look forward to my next opportunity to return. Sometimes solo and many time accompanied by one or several and never a disappointment. when in season the Beet Salad is the very best!

We had a $80 Groupon for a party of 4. It still was over $180 with 4 appetizers, 2 entrees, and 7 adult beverages (6 glasses of wine and 1 beer). We had a reservation for 5:45 on a Monday. There is no air conditioning nor ceiling fans so beware on the warmer days. The atmosphere in the daylight is... More

I have gone to Branzino a number of times and have the same experience. The octopus is the best in the city and the bartenders are consistently bad. Normally such inattentive bar service would drive me out of a restaurant never to return. But the octopus is so good I continue to return to my husbands downfall. He doesn't like... More

We ended up changing plans and stopping by branzino when we found our other choices closed on Sunday. Was pleasantly surprised - our waiter was quite helpful, the atmosphere was cozy, and the food was delicious. My wife and I split the branzino, and sampled a few appetizers and small dishes. Typically you might end up with at least one... More
