You no longer have to go Venice to experience an authentic wine bar, as Barrique Venice is ready to serve you. The wine cellar at this place is worthy of the admiration of the most avid of collectors, and the finger foods pair well with your favorite red or white bottle.

Barrique Venice is a great place to go out with the girlfriends, enjoy some nice music and great conversation, all with impeccable service. The soft meat, vegetable and cheese platters are always a hit as well, and are expertly prepared at Barrique Venice. The next time you're out in Venice, head on over for a fantastic time.

Barrique is a great place for dates--the atmosphere is charming as are the mostly Italian staff. I am working my way through its menu and so far every dish has been well executed.

Had the worst table (right on top of the stairs to the kitchen - way too much traffic) but the food made up for it.

Did not have pleasant welcome when we arrived 10 minutes early for res. Waited total of 25 minutes for a table. Menu selection was not veggie or gluten free friendly. Portions were very small. Wine by the glass was $22, w/ very mediocre pour. My sparkling water was filled up with tap water when wasn't looking. No price was supplied for the fish special which was $39 when bill came. However, the food was tasty. Thought it was overpriced. I won't return.

Great menu only limited by the desert options. Ordered chocolate soufflé and was served a melting middle chocolate pudding. No desert in a proper restaurant should come served with spray cream it cheapens the dish. And as an Italian restaurant there really should be a tiramisu on the desert menu.
Being super picky but given the rest of the menu, the service and the atmosphere was impeccable this would simply be advice to take an amazing meal to the level of outstanding.
Highly recommend dining here - best local restaurant in Venice by a long way.

The service was very good with extremely good description of the menu. Upstairs room was very nice until a party of eight sat behind us at which point the noise level went through the roof. Much louder than a normal gathering. We could barely hear each other talk as the entire room raised their voices to compete with the table of eight.

Not the direct problem of the restaurant; however, I should have been more observant or perhaps the hostess might have warned us of the potential issue. This detracted from an otherwise nice evening out.

Had a nice family dinner at this Venice hot spot. Service was excellent, food and wine even better. The 5 of us shared the grilled octopus, burrata with aged prosciutto, and caprese salad starters...all very good. Everyone loved the pasta dishes that they ordered...but my cocoa infused pasta with wild boar was simply to die for. Their pasta specialty is the beet pasta with quail ragu over a cheese fondue. Two in our party ordered this and immediate,y understood why it was a best seller. Good wine selection, and a great chocolate molten lava cake (on the small side) to top off the night. A fun evening...great ambiance, service, and food. Highly recommend.

Food is always great but the bread and one dish came out cold. Also, asked for a full bodied wine and they recommended a pretty light red which I wouldn’t care too much about if it wasn’t an $80 bottle.

But overall the food is amazing and I love this place.

Nice ambience, with a converted loft or cottage feel. Ceiling has exposed beams, but tables are close together and felt like we were dining with another couple whose table was inches away. Wine list is mostly Italian wines, that are very pricey, and very few domestic choices. Suggested wine bottle was good, but was in the low $100s range, which is about the mean there. Food was excellent, but the noise level, close tables, and expensive wine list were a challenge, and took away from the overall experience.

Barrique is one of the best Italian restaurants in Los Angeles — intimate, innovative while staying firmly within Parma traditions, with sone extraordinary pasta dishes and appetizers. From the highly personal service to the candlelight ambience, the place is a gem.

Food was good, not excellent. Although meat and pasta dishes were delicious. Wine was nice. Octopus appetizer was eh. Dessert was not good, but we didn’t take servers suggestion on dessert. Service was great, cute cozy restaurant but on a busy street. Wouldn’t go back bc it’s pretty pricey, loud and the food didn’t wow us.

Finding an authentic Italian restaurant outside of Italy is a challenge. SF has just 2 great ones and this one is a big deal. The primi were exceptional, my only quibble being it would have been great to have one more pasta on the menu. The fillet was maybe the best I’ve had in years, made fiorentino style. Ditto for the grilled octopus and the panna cotta. Having an all Italian serving staff makes it all the more authentic
