La Barra - Riverside
The food was GREAT! Our party had mussels, fish, pizza - all perfectly prepared.
Good food good atmosphere
We sat outside and had a wonderful dinner. The wait time for drinks as well as food was much improved since our last visit. We had the deep dish pizza and it was absolutely fabulous!
Great food and great service! We had a party of 12, and food was served together, quickly, hot and delicious.
Amazing food--friendly staff--would definitely go back!
Awesome as usual!
Great service and food
The bread was excellent. Service okay, my wine order was wrong. The meal was overpriced and the sauce tasted and had the texture of tomato paste right out of the can.
WOW...very LOUD. Couldn't even talk to person next to me. Couldn't hear the waiter talk.
Best pizza in town. Service has improved twice over. Great value and the happy hour is one of the best in the area.

Great time. Good food and hospitality! Caesar is the best!!
The waitress- Sherri- was initially attentive but after she got other tables she all but forgot us. At one point had to wave arms over head to get her attention. Then she started giving us attitude. when we tried to order she said let me get you some water. She went to another table- took their order and five minutes later returned to us. Still brought no water. Ruined the evening. Will not go back.
The half price appetizers and $5 on certain drinks from Tues - Fri is a bargain. Nice way to sample the appetizers and see what you like. Everything we ordered- fried calamari, beets and the asparagus with an egg were delicious. Am going to come back and sample some of the other appetizers and dinners.
Very pleased with the food and service.
Great food ! Good for the whole family. The kids really enjoyed the meatballs. The bread is outstanding and the pizza was phenomenal!
Marcello our waiter was great but it looked like he had a lot of tables to work with, both inside and out. Despite that he was cheerful and as attentive as possible. We did have to ask again for our birthday cake as the hostess forgot to mention it to the staff, and it did delay our departure. Apps were really good, the Sicilian seafood salad was very fresh! The grilled calamari are great, but could have used a few more calamari;)).
Great meal, good food but a little pricey. A couple more shrimp in the fetttuccine Alfredo would have made it a better value.
La Barra is all that I expected it to be.
The food was amazing and the waiter did not leave us unattended, very good service overall.
The scenery is beautiful ,it's the perfect place to take your date to or your whole family.
The place is very well managed, the personal pay good attention to details and that is something you won't find just anywhere.
La Barra is very beautiful inside and it's just as beautiful outside as well.
They have out door tables and it's very nicely decorated with beautiful lights that just take your breath away at night.
I strongly recommend this place to anyone and I also recommend that if you do go do not leave without trying out their deserts.
The canoli and cheese cake were the most delicious I have ever had in my life!
Great food! Inconsistent service! We were a table of 4 adults having wine and dinner. The staff in general seemed disorganized with a slow bartender service, so wine came late to the table.
Nice evening. Loved listening to Matt Scharpf at the He mic. Will return for Thursday night music. The brachiole was delicious.
Everyone was friendly atmosphere was nice food was good.
I have been to LaBarra serveral times and I enjoy the food and atmosphere, however, the wait staff has
been consistently under par, even when the place is not busy. The wait staff is slow to introduce self, get water, drinks, come back for order and once food is served, slow to refresh drinks. I have had several different waiters, so it is not just one.
We love this restaurant. We enjoy fine dining and no rushing. Our waiter, Patti,was wonderful. Knows her menu and gave us great critiques on prep of food items. The service was great, too. This was our second visit, and I know we
will go back again.
everything was good but, the service. the waitress was friendly but, slow. it should not take 2 1/2 hrs. to eat. even in a casual setting.
Bread - as expected- was delicious and we kept ordering more. Ruben our server was on point, and made sure that our meal came out the way we wanted, ready to be shared across the table. Food was nicely done, nonna was not excited about the gnocchi but that was to be expected;) We ordered a lot, would highly recommend the lasagna. Cacio needs more black pepper, and please offer freshly grated cheese instead of the containers of who knows what.
Good time. Good food.
Family visiting from out of town.
It was my daughter's 21st birthday and we went here, our server went above and beyond she was genuinely amazing. The food was fantastic thank you everyone there.
Always a good time that's why we go back. Great for birthdays and special events.
Have eaten at Labarra many times. Decided to have my mom's 90th birthday party there. There were 11 of us seated in Marcello's station. We could not have been happier with the food, service and ambiance. We had 4 medium pizzas as appetizers. A few people had entrees as well. We brought our own cake and they were very accommodating.
Wonderful service and amazing food.
Always great food and great people. Took extra long for food to come out but they gave us a complimentary round of drinks while we waited!
Good food, nice Atmosphere, great service at the bar.
We had a wonderful time here. The noise level is higher the closer to the bar you sit. We loved the food, our waitress was attentive and great. Overall, it was wonderful.
We had a great meal on the patio with a friend who was visiting from out of town. Great service and great value with half off bottles of wine Wednesdays!
We had a birthday celebration with 6 adults and 5 grandkids ages 2-7.... Marcelo was a great waiter and food was great... Tuesday was BOGO pizza which worked out great for kids... we recommend the bracciolle... our celebration couldn’t have been better!
The food is good. I had pasta taste it was delicious . The Drinks were on point not to strong well served. The prices on the menu are great I expected to be more expensive but it wasn’t. Great service polite workers. Veronica was our server she was awesome funny polite really good server.
