    AMAZING, AGAIN! We booked a table for two online. Ordered a bottle of Italian Merlot which went well with a shared platter. We had mains of Pizza and a Mushroom Pasta - mouth watering! Shared a Tiramisu, finishing with coffee and Limoncello. Top marks!

    I have been visiting Bar Italia for the last 10 years. I have even had two parties here in the downstairs private area. It is a fantastic restaurant!! Quality is unbeatable!! Staff are attentive and nothing is too much trouble. The food is what keeps me coming back. Every week there are new specials which follow the seasonal produce that is available to keep everything as fresh as it can be. Before I went for lunch I sent a message to them on Instagram asking what the specials are, they quickly replied and even recommended the beef (which I got and it was amazing). I honestly can not rate Bar Italia any higher. Friends I have recommended here to have also become regular customers.

    Good food and friendly service but much too slow!

    Bar ItaliaResponded 2 days agoHi Micheal , i m completely horrified to read. My sincere apologies. We had an issue with internet connection for a couple of minutes last night that caused a couple of orders failing to reach the kitchen. This caused big delays in serving your food indeed. I m very sorry this happened and next time you are in we will look after you very very well. You custom is very important to us and i hope u forgive us this time. thank you David

    The food wasn’t really tasty but the atmosphere was very nice. The staff in my opinion should speak English in first place when greeting people. It feels bit uncomfortable if you don’t speak Italian.

    Bar ItaliaResponded 4 days agoHi there, u left a 4 stars review on google , i wonder why only 3 here? We respect your opinion but we are not going to change our way of greeting, and in fact we are always happy to say a few more words in Italian with people that engage. Do not worry all our staff speak english too! Next time if something is not to your liking , tell us so we can explain the dish or change it. Once plates are empty it s hard to take a negative comment by way of review arrivederci a presto David

    Food and service good, Service charge was quite high

    Bar ItaliaResponded 4 days agohi Leanne , we are happy that you have enjoyed the food and the service. However a 10% service charge on a group of 9 we believe is actually fair and rather on the low side . We know most places do a 12.5% or even 15% hopefully we will see u soon again David

    We had a variety of mains - spaghetti ai frutti di mare, ravioli filled with mushroom and marinara pizza. My friends really enjoyed their pasta mains. I had the marinara pizza and I will certainly order it again. It was beautiful - no cheese, gorgeous anchovies, lovely tomato sauce. I feel hungry writing this ! The ambiance and the standard of service was as good as before. Will be back.

    Bar ItaliaResponded on 7 June 2022Hi Gerry, thanks for visiting. I seen that 2 of the 3 dishes ordered had ingredients changed , i wonder was this that caused a bit of a problem ? Also if this feedback would have been brought up on the day , we would have had made it up to u somehow. We have a policy to check always with the customers whether they are happy or not and nothing was said to us. Apologies if we did not live up to the expectations. please feel free to reach me at info@baritalia.ie for more info. David Izzo
