Good service in a good old family house.

I am continually drawn back for more than 25 years. The family used to live upstairs and run a restaurant downstairs, Great Italian cooking. A little hard to find in a neighborhood, but your GPS will take you there, and you'll say it was worth the trip. The waiters, presentation and menu are all... read more

Valentine's Eve was cold and icy, but we had dinner reservations and decided to venture out. That turned out to be a great decision. We dined in a small room lined with mirrors. The atmosphere there was perfect for the evening. The veal dishes were outstanding, the service attentive and the basket of warm zeppoles as delicious as always. The... More

The food and service are excellent. It IS pricey, but the preparations are beautifully done, the wine list is very nice and the staff professionally friendly and attentive. Their pasta is perfect.

We went to Baressi's after moving back to Cincinnati and it was just as wonderful as we remembered. Great food, good Italian wine, and a wonderful cheesecake to top it all off. The delicious warm bread pockets are enough to keep this restaurant on your list!

I took my wife to Barresi's for her birthday as we went there ocassionally when we dated and always enjoyed it. We were disappointed in the menu as well as the quality. The menu is HALF of what it used to be (maybe less) ...no more antipasto appetizer. ....no more seafood cardinale.....no more Ossco Bussco or even steak. And only... More

We save Barresi's, and similar restaurants, for special occasions, such as birthdays, anniversaries, or just a special treat to ourselves when life gets a little heavy. Nothing like a good meal in a good atmosphere to cheer you up. At least, that's our philosophy. We've been eating here for many years. In fact, the original owner who started with a... More

I took my wife, mom, mother-in-law, and grown daughter to Barresi's to celebrate Mother's Day. All four ladies got exactly what they wanted, the service was excellent, and the price is exactly what you would expect to pay for this level of fine dining. Best Italian in Cincinnati by a long shot. We will be back!!!

Recently dined at Barresi's Italian restaurant in Deer Park Ohio. Great food, great service, but paying over $100 for a dinner for two for Italian food is a somewhat over the top. I did not like that they added the 20% gratuity onto the bill with out asking. Enjoyed the experience but will not go back in the near future.
