This is a stall Italian restaurant that is not fancy. The service is always good and the I have never had a bad meal here. Its relatively inexpensive and the servings are more than adequate.

I frequent Barilari's almost every Friday with fellow teachers. The staff is friendly, informative and accommodating. The chef is great! Some of my favorites are their rigatoni bolognese, chicken scarpariello, eggplant florentine, and pizza. Portions are large and generally come with a salad or pasta, also generous in size. Their food is fresh, served by an excellent staff and always... More

I have been going to Barilari's since it has opened and there hasn't been one time that I have been disappointed by the service or the quality and quantity of the portions. The pizza has to be the best in the town. They have the most incredible sicilian and pan pizzas and their Nona pizza and Margarita is to die... More

Great italian food, specials were on the blackboard and were very good, sauteed chicken with veggies were great, as was chicken parm. Pizza was good as well, tasty and good quality ingredients.

Great food but the most unreliable service ever! They have gotten something wrong in my order 9 times out of 10 and that is just unacceptable...but I guess that's what happens when you let 18 year olds run the place. I cannot be the only one this happens too! Make sure to check your food when ordering take out or... More

They deliver, too, really nice people working there. One time, though, I was ignored waiting for a seat. It was pretty aggravating, so I left. But, if you get pick up or delivery, it should be fine. DELICIOUS pizza. AMAZING mozz sticks and salads. Definitely give them a try. They are one of my favorite places for a meal! Definitely!

I ordered linguine with clam sauce and it came with 4-5 cloves of garlic-- too much for me. In volume the garlic was twice the amount of clams! I prefer pasta al dente so I considered it wobbly and overcooked. This is just a small neighborhood place and I didn't expect gourmet food, but for a $14 entre it was... More
