Friendly service. Not too speedy, not slow. Was very pleased to find such a great value as well as such a nice dish for lunch. I enjoyed a "Mediterranean Chicken" dish which had a generous portion of delicately prepared chicken with vegetables in pesto. When I asked to substitute pasta for the rice I was told, "sure," without any problem.... More

The appetizers, brochettas and calamari ,were delicious. Four of us had three different types of fish,salmon,swordfish and tuna. All were were cooked perfectly with very tasty sauces. Service was friendly and attentive. The owner, Minerva ,came over to the table to inquire if we were enjoying the dinner. Last but not the least, ambiance was very elegant. And the check... More

I dined here several years ago and went back last week. I forgot how great the food and service was! Portions are "normal" size so there is room for dessert. Pricing is a bit high but the food is well worth it. Our waiter overheard us talking about it being our friend's birthday and he brought us out a piece... More

Came here with my family looking for the Italian food I knew in the Capitol District over 40 years ago. Was not disappointed. Only two veal dishes, I seem to recall more variety at Fannies in Latham, but that closed a few years ago. The veal parmigiano was good and the portion was generous. Gambas all aji, steak chimichurri, and... More

Five of us went to celebrate a birthday. Each chose a different entrée. I had the veal Daniel . To say it was good is definitely an under statement. The veal was tender & cooked to perfection, however the sauce made the dish. The others enjoyed their meals as much as I did. Among their choices were chicken ala vodka,... More

I met a friend here for lunch on a Thursday afternoon. During our hour visit, there were only about 7 other people in the restaurant. The service was fine, but there really wasn't anything special about the food. I had a wrap which was very large, and my friend had paella which appeared to be reheated. Meh.

Barcelona is one of our "go to" restaurants when it comes to celebrating a birthday, anniversary, etc. The food is just delicious and the atmosphere warm and inviting. As another reviewer stated the menu is diverse with plenty of wine choices too. I had an amazing appetizer (a special the night we were there) that I have talked about numerous... More
