Very well prepared inventive Italian. Great wine list for high end Italian and French wines. The setting is a small wood house on Main St in Venice and makes for a romantic dinner spot

Our favorite restaurant. Everything about this restaurant is outstanding. Food, service, ambience. Very romantic. The Beet Pasta with Quail Ragu is incredible, but so is everything else on the menu. We have brought many friends along with us and everyone leaves truly impressed and happy.

There are strict rules here. You must order your entire meal at the same time. We wanted the two appetizers brought separately but was told it is a small kitchen and they could not do that. They did not bring our entree until we were done and also asked if we wanted to wait. Service was outstanding. The pasta with rabbit and prunes and mushrooms was outstanding

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.
