Many, many moons ago, I used to attend school across the street. It took many years later to eat at this gem of a place. Although I live in another state now, I make a few road trips a year, and I am never disappointed. Last week I ordered two shrimp Mozambique appetizers, a clam boil, and a fried seafood... More

This is a great place to enjoy a relaxing meal. I had the turkey special and my wife had the Portuguese steak and egg dinner. Turkey was tender and I especially liked the stuffing. We will come back here again.

Went on a Sunday Afternoon. Not very crowded. Started out with drinks and a cup of soup. The Kale Soup was very good, with plenty of bread. The meal however was not so good. The Pork Alentejana was rubbery and tough! The broth was also a yellowish broth which I've never had before. It didn't taste very good. The rest... More

Portugal colonized many areas of the world and the exotic variety of Barcello's Portuguese food reflects this: the menu features wonderful dishes from Portuguese colonies in Asia, South America and Europe as well as everyday American dishes such as Lemon Meringue pie. The restaurant itself is clean, light and airy--it has the feel of a place whose owners are proud... More

Love this place. Had the shrimp Mozzambique and we ordered an extra bowl of sauce and all of us sat there and dunked our Portugese rolls in this deliciousness. Service a bit slow, but waitress is very helpful and cheerful.

We have been here once before and wait over an hour both times to get our food. We decided to try it again tonight hoping the wait for our food wouldn't take that long again because my 2 year old was with us and it's kind of hard to keep her occupied for a long time. Tonight from start to... More
