This charming Upper East Side caffe is very charming and comfortable. It is a smallish neighborhood Italian restaurant where the owner is present, the food is amazing and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. The kitchen uses high-quality ingredients for its mix-and-match philosophy. Patrons can choose their meats, their pastas (dried or the restaurants homemade), and their sauces. The servers are welcoming and always smiling and attentive. A gem of a place to eat.

The 1st floor is an authentic Italian bar and the second floor features the restaurant, wine bar, cultural and language school, as well as the coffee and gelato labs.
“In 1998, Craig Stoll and his soon-to-be wife, Annie, opened Delfina, whose Tuscan-influenced dishes established a new benchmark for Italian food in San Francisco, and a new center of gravity for the cuisine, in the city’s Mission district.

Mr. Lombardi practically invented hospitality, and it is evident the moment you enter… [Read More]
We are named after Barano D’Ischia, the township in southern Italy where Chef Di Meglio’s grandmother, Giuseppina, was born. Giuseppina was instrumental in Al’s growth as a chef, and her cooking incited his love and career in food. Without her, you wouldn’t be joining us for dinner tonight. As a tribute to the place that educated Giuseppina in the art of cooking, we decided to name ourselves Barano.

Our goal is to pay an homage to those days and to the people who lived throughout that tumultuous time.
