Brought friends ftom BR. They all loved Italian Barrell and were most impressed from service to food. IB never disappoints
Delicious Northern Italian food! It is so difficult to locate a restaurant with dishes from that area of Italy. Flawless food and service. Romantic ambiance. Can't wait to return.
It was a wonderful Father's Day celebration. The food was most enjoyable.
First I would like to thank Chris for an outstanding service. The food was absolutely amazing. Cocktails were on the dot with flavor and Chris was so knowledgeable with the cocktail menus. He absolutely mentioned the popular food items. Thank you for opening your restaurant during this difficult time.
Wonderful food and the staff was great. Love this place
So great to be back dining. Service was amazing. Food was amazing. Only downside was a screaming baby at another table. Can’t fault the restaurant for someone else’s rudeness tho!
Amazing Food and Service. A must!!!!
We had an amazing time with the most delicious food! They paid attention to the smallest details! They even decorated our table for our anniversary! We will be back!
Delicious meal! Excellent service!
Smaller restaurant with great bar.
Had a wonderful dinner. Service was excellent and the ambience was fantastic! I would highly recommend to anyone!
Very expensive and not flavorful. Charming setting and great service, but food did not live up to its price.
We had a table outside because of Covid which we were all fine with. However, when is started to pour down rain, they wouldn’t let us inside with the 4 other tables and they boxed up out half eaten dinner as we sat outside and gave us the bill for the full amount. Paid it and tipped the server 30% because I felt bad for him but the restaurant could have done better.
Amazing as always! Happy 12th anniversary Italian Barrel!
Fabulous food, wine, service and environment. We love Italian Barrel for any occasion.
It was our anniversary, and we chose to celebrate at Italian Barrel. We had done so last year also, and it was so good we decided to return this year. If anything, it was even better. Perfect evening.
Excellent service and food.
Bruschetta, the Veal meatball with spaghetti, the fettuccine special recipe and a gnocchi. Perfect!!!
The food was very good, quiet atmosphere and good service.
Amazing food!! Try the truffle ravioli ❤️❤️
We had to wait past our reservation for the table and the hostess was very apologetic .
The service and attention was very good !
Best ravioli I’ve ever had. Would love a crawfish option! Would def recommend!!
Date night with my husband. He said out loud “this is the best veal chop I have ever had”. We enjoyed every bite of our food. Appetizers Dinner and Dessert. What a treat. ❤️
Excellent restaurant but air con seemed too cold as with most US eateries. Staff and food were both great though.
Food / Service outstanding
Despite the crowded conditions during Mardi Gras, the food service was perfect and served quickly!
Exceptional food. Attentive service.
Always a good meal and friendly staff. Good wine selection!
Awesome experience as usual.
We had a great time!! Loved our food. 👍🏼👍🏼
We were a party of eight & everyone said that their entrees were very good. I had the seafood served in parchment & it was delicious! The service was exceptional.
The food was delicious. Just what we were hoping for from our dining experience. Unfortunately, we had a poor host experience. My husband walked in and was told the restaurant was full and “this is a fancy place. There is a pizza joint around the corner.” He wasn’t dressed casually but did have two Mardi Gras bead necklaces from the parade we walked by earlier in the day. I went online and made a reservation on open table for 15 minutes later and we were greeted warmly and seated promptly. I appreciate wanting to separate from the Mardi grad crowds but to say you were full was a lie. We weren’t rowdy or poorly dressed. We called it out on open table to ensure they don’t do that to a future party.
Side note: they were out of the wine we ordered and had to make a substitute using an app to suggest something. It took ages and they could have just asked me and I would have picked another bottle of wine. No app needed.
Noise VERY loud.
Meatball appetizer is delicious!! Loved my tuna salad. Lasagna is always delicious!!
Never disappoints. Another amazing meal
Best authentic Italian food I've ever had at a restaurant! As others have noted, service is slow, especially the bar (40 minutes to get our drink), but food came out in a timely fashion, and was good enough that it was worth the wait. Will be back, but may stop somewhere else for a pre-dinner cocktail.
A lovely neighborhood spot on the edge of the French Quarter. The food, ambience is excellent and worth a try. Menu is not extensive, but easy to find something to your liking. Make a reservation to insure you get a table of which there are not that many, but the size of the restaurant is what makes it special. Super attentive wait staff and a fun place. We will return next time we visit NOLA for sure.

The food was amazing, the atmosphere was romantic and the wine was great. The only issue is that we had to wait about 30 minutes past our reservation time to be seated. We had a late reservation at 9:30pm and didn’t get seated until 10pm. The food made up for the wait. Well worth it.
