Bar Italia works with local farmers, growers and purveyors to source products with integrity, flavor and soul, and incorporate these seasonal offerings into menus nightly.
They serve authentic Italian cuisine with succulent dishes like Osso Bucco or Veal Milanese plus amazing pastas like Black Truffle Tagliolini or hand made Pear and Teleggio cheese Gnocchi.
Laid-back, eclectic and unpretentious, it is an elegant neighborhood restaurant. Warm hues, soft lighting and an unexpected quirkiness encourage guests to settle in, get comfortable, and have a great time.
The experience is about more than just food. A sincere effort to educate their staff on all aspects of food and wine culture is the basis for their service philosophy. The welcoming staff at Bar Italia goes to great lengths to make diners feel at ease, comfortable and well taken care of.
Their value-driven wine list features 100 bottles under $100. The wines, like the food, are never static and change with the seasons. Labels range from interesting newcomers to Old-World classics from small-production winemakers who put as much love and care into their wines that Bar Italia puts into their food.
