Barra Rossa – Philadelphia Ratings and Reviews

Was conveniently located near our show which was at the Walnut St Theatre. We received a 15% off with our ticket stubs and a free appetizer which I received in the mail. Our wine was very good and so was the food which arrived hot and promptly. We enjoyed our meal and the service was good.

This was a rather disappointing visit. I had previously been to the restaurant and, although it was not a gourmet experience, the food and service were perfectly acceptable for a neighborhood convenience.
This time, however, things did not go so well. Our waiter appeared to be new, unfamiliar with even basic procedures and he had to be prompted to bring drinks. Our meals were not great either. I ordered an entree salad with shrimp (4 of them) that was almost entirely lettuce. My companion ordered a chicken dish that she said was tasteless, even having to request the capers and mushrooms indicated on the menu.
The place was extremely busy -- lots of theater traffic (including us!) -- but it will probable remain more of a pizza place in my mind.

had pre-theater dinner there for the first time. we waited way too long for the waiter to come over and waited too long again for our drinks to be served. the waiter, although very sweet, seemed very green.
i ordered chicken piccata which the menu described as having capers and mushrooms on it. it had nothing on it and was utterly tasteless. i complained to the waiter who apologized and then brought out mushrooms with capers and it still was lacking in flavor. i kept reaching for the salt so that i could be marginally satisfied with my meal. no time to send it back as we had a show to go to.

Four of us had a pre-theater dinner there recently. Our curtain time was 6:30, but the theater is just a few blocks away, and we told the staff that we had a deadline, and they were very accommodating. 3 people ordered main courses off the Italian-themed menu and pronounced them very good. I had the salad with seared tuna, and the waitress reconfirmed a few time just exactly how I wanted it cooked, which I thought reflected how much the restaurant cares about a diner's preference and how flexible they can be. It came out just right. The dinner was good, and at a reasonable price. We'll most likely go back there the next time we need to have dinner at that location.

I had lunch at the bar and the service was excellent. The bartender was my server and also had to contend with the rest of the restaurant, and she was very helpful and attentive. I had a great time and will be back. Thanks.

We made this reservation at the last minute and I must say we were more than pleasantly surprised. From the hostess to the wait staff all were quite professional and made the dining experience before our show quite memorable.

Once again a homerun! Had sausage and pepper sandwich with french fries. Meal arrived quickly and to my delight, it was HOT, HOT, HOT ! Everything was excellent, including the service.
Waitress was attentive without being intrusive, hard to do I know. We were seated on arrival, order taken quickly, and food delivered shortly.
I will be back, this has become one of my favorite places to share a meal.

Nice restaurant with good atmosphere. Our food was good but the waiter definitely detracted from the experience. We waited for quite some time after we were seated to be acknowledged. He was not very attentive and we even heard him arguing with a co-worker. Aside from that I would definitely recommend.

Waiter was great. Very accommodating. Food made fresh. Should have a veggie option included in main meal as a substitute for pasta without it being an up charge. Would like more vegan...veggie options. Overall enjoyed out dining experience.

Dined with a friend on Friday night. Arrived early for our reservation and the friendly host staff was able to seat us right away at a beautiful table by the window on the second floor. Our server was attentive and professional. The food was delicious, came out quickly and was priced fairly. Would definitely return when back in town!

Lunch before a play. Calamari was excellent. Our table ordered Beet goat cheese salad, chicken panini, sausage sandwich and chicken Caesar salad. Nice portions excellent food. Our waiter was awesome and made it a comfortable experience for the 2 senior citizens that were dining with us.

Quick to seat, waited awhile to order and part of order was wrong but by the time server came back it was not worth the trouble. Dessert was suppose to be cake/mouse. No cake in it and did not like it. Server did not even realize we only took a spoonful and left rest of it

We loved the food and the service was exceptional. All kinds of dishes we liked.
Eggplant , crab, and meatball appetizers were great. We wound up getting several small
plates instead of an entree, each one excellent. Just try not to sit at the center row of tables.
Servers were zooming by us on both sides a lot.

Pretty standard Italian food. The meatballs in the braised meatball appetizer lacked flavor. My girlfriend got the Linguine w/ crabmeat, which was a kinda small portion for the price and didn't really taste outstanding to make up for it. I had the 4 cheese Ravioli in Pesto. The Pesto sauce was far too cheesy in itself. However the portion size was good.
We were on the second floor and it was very hot. Great service though

My husband and I have returned to Barra Rossa several times for dinner when we are in Philadelphia because they never disappoint us! The service is excellent and the food is always delicious. We enjoy the ambiance that the second floor offers to make our evenings there special.

Always a pleasant experience. If you have a special seating request when making your reservation they honor it. Wait staff is excellent and both pleasantly attentive and helpful. Very good food value with a nice variety of tasty options. I had a salmon that was cooked to perfection. Very moist, great temperature and well seasoned.

We were looking for a place for a pre-theatre dinner and this turned out to be a gem! So many good-looking choices on the menu. Two of us had the ravioli in pesto sauce. Delicious! Serving was just the right size, too. The zucchini frite was tasty, but a bit disappointing. More breading than zucchini. Our servers were very aware that we wanted to get to the theatre and made that happen easily. We will definitely return to try this restaurant again!
