One of our favorites in Venice. Seasonal dishes thoughtfully prepared and excellent service. The gem lettuce and hearts of palm salad and grilled fish was completely devoured and the wine suggested was delicious and something I wouldn't have found without their help.

I don't think I would recommend Barrique for a party of two. I really enjoyed Barrique but the one issue is the tables. The tables for two are ridiculously close to the other tables. It seems they are trying to get too many in and privacy for diners is paying the price. I don't know that I would ever go again if it's just two of us because you are literally dinning with the people at the next table.

We booked Barrique for our 4th wedding anniversary and it was amazing! From start to finish we were completely catered to and made to feel like their first priority. Everything from the bread to the dessert were perfectly prepared and portioned. Highly recommend the black truffle pasta!

This place is special! Every morsel of food was absolutely delicious from the Sea Bass special to the truffle pasta and even the Filet my daughter ordered. The selection of Italian wines is excellent and the service and attention to detail were top notch. I can’t say enough about how great this place is. As someone who has spent a great deal of time in Italy I can honestly say you’d be hard pressed to beat Barrique Venice anywhere in the US.

This wonderful restaurant has gone to s**t! One of my favorite restaurants just handed me one of the worst dining experiences on an evening of a special occasion for guests I invited. I was absolutely embarrassed! First, the inexperienced waiter tried to slip by a cheaper bottle of wine that was not what I ordered. Then the food I ordered was overcooked and the service was non-existent. And finally when I received the bill I was overcharged for what I ordered. I will not be returning and suggest you save yourself the heartache. Such a shame!

The squid ink pasta we ordered was rather flavorless. Amount of crab in dish minimal. can't remember the name of the other dish we ordered which was also not that great. My wife and I did like the sea bass in a reduction sauce which was perfectly cooked.

Overall, totally not worth the money spent. Could have gone to any old "Italian" restaurant and had a much tastier meal for a better price.

I will say that Alessandro was a delight and was the only real highlight of the experience here. Would not go back again.

One of my favorite restaurants in LA. I always bring my Mom here when she visits. Also, it's an amazing date spot. VERY VIBEY. The entire staff is Italian & the food itself is very authentic. Fresh pasta, fresh food, and quality service. Definitely, my favorite Italian place I have been to. Highly recommend this place.

Our first time at Barrique and it did not disappoint. Appetizer sizes were larger than expected. Home made pastas were fabulous yummy. It's very cozy in that tables are very close together, but both couples were extremely nice and we had some fun conversations. Huge selection of wines, almost all Italian. Had a bottle of Syrah from Sicily. Service was very friendly. Did not feel rushed at all.

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.
