We went to Barolo's for New Years Eve, I had made our reservation a month in advance. We arrived a half hour early and decided to sit at the bar and have a drink prior to dinner, much to our surprise it was still 'happy hour' and we were able to order a bottle of Italian red wine for $15... More

Barolo lives up to its name with a great wine list of mostly Italian selections. The vibe is very "Miami", all white, sleek, chandeliers/candlelight, and soft background techno music. My pasta dish was excellent but my counterpart wasn't overly excited about their choice. The food was simple and well prepared Mediterranean style Italian (lots of seafood, light sauce). Little pricey... More

The grilled romaine Caesar salad was the best I have ever had and my daughter raved about her caprese salad with fresh mozzarella. My granddaughter enjoyed her butternut squash soup, and that was just our first course! I ordered one of the specials, the sea trout, which was outstanding. All in our party agreed that this was our favorite of... More

I came here for happy hour and it proved to be incredible value and a good experience. The hanger steak was delicious and is a steal for only $9. We also had the lamb burger, a caprese salad, calamari and a tasty spinach and ricotta ravioli dish. This place certainly has one of the better happy hour menu's in town... More

Very delicious italian fare with high end service and a reasonable price. Their take on the usual mozarella and tomato appetizer was prepared instead with soft gorgonzola. A delight, as were our entrees.

I came here with my parents, and we are 100% Italian. Needless to say, we're pretty picky about Italian restaurants. Barolo's was nothing short of outstanding! The food was every bit as delicious as what we've had in Italy. We were actually there for happy hour so the entrees were 50% off, as well as the wine. It should be... More

After a long day of shopping, we stopped in here for the happy hour and were not disappointed. The wine selection was excellent and 50% off for the happy hour special. Also on the happy hour menu were great selections with large portions for a great price. Our waitress was amazing and was always looking after us.

Had the team go for dinner here. Great menu. Service was excellent including the recommendations and also accommodating one of our diners who had certain food restrictions. The pancetta appetizer was what jumped out immediately on the menu - which I ordered and thoroughly enjoyed. Place was packed on a Thursday night so make sure you get reservations. Even by... More

My wife and I came to the Barolo Restaurant for their happy hour. During happy hour, all the items on their bar menu are 50% off which was quite a bargain. The happy hour is from 3:00 to 6:30 pm but you better get there early because it fills up fast. This restaurant is located in the Metropolitan Towers on... More
