There’s been a change of ownership and the standard of service has definitely dropped but the food is still good so assuming they’ve kept the old chefs. Still reasonable value for money but expect to be waiting awhile for your drinks, not to have your table cleared and make sure you check your bill at the end to make sure you’re only being charged for what you received.

We have been here several times but were very disappointed this time. The Pasta with sausage and mushrooms was quite different than it usually is and was very greasy with virtually no mushrooms. They forgot our salad and then said it would be around 15 to 20 mins to bring it to us Surely the side salad could be prepared before hand. Also we had to ask twice to be moved to a table that wasn't in the doorway and in the full sun. The first person said no even though literally half of the restaurant was empty. It just didnt seem like it was before and we definitely won't be back unfortunately mostly because the food just wasn't enjoyable.

It is wonderful to have such a good quality and 'trendy' eatery in the neighbourhood. I did notice that their pasta special has gone has been replaced with "normal' prices which is a shame. I have been to Barbarino's a handful if times and it is still affordable yet good quality pasta and pizza.They keep it simple; no extensive wine lists or dessert options (quite frankly the meals are too big to consider dessert as well!). They also do takeout although I prefer to dine in. It always seems busy and the atmosphere is lively - great for big groups - and even better now you can book in advance! There is plenty of parking behind the building or in the surrounding streets. Highly recommended!

Felt like we were shown to our seats and then forgotten about. I could see lots of effort put into their uber orders to the detriment of those who were sitting in their resturant.

HI there - it took too long to be seated, the food and drink were nice but then no-one came back to clear table or ask us if we wanted dessert or another drink. You could of got at least another $40 out of us for 2.You need more staff on and better procedures. I would come back with my kids for an early dinner perhaps though

Food was great and staff were friendly. Our table was very cramped and felt like we were in the main walk way. Also evening sun was hitting us and make it uncomfortable I would definitely come back and recommend the menu has lots of options. It would be great if Gluten free and Vegan options were outlined on menu

There were few mosquitos around our table which disturbed us a lot while we were there thats why rating 4 for atmosphere otherwise the place has got a great vibe. We got given pizza and pasta to share but no plates. I had to go and get them myself as we did not get them even after requesting at the table. Thats why 4 for service.

Second time at this restaurant , it’s great to have a neighbourhood Italian eatery, the first time everything was really delicious, the wine is easy to drink and like that you can order a carafe of wine. Unfortunately this second visit the food was extremely salty the waiter was lovely about the feedback and took the food back to the chef however it came back and was still quite salty. We’ve ordered the Bolognese and Carbonara previously and really enjoyed it The cannoli are delicious.

Hey team, loved my experience at Barbarinos, delicious food! Only thing I would say is that I preferred it when the tiramisu was served on a plate/bowl as the sponge keeps its form better. Last night we had it served in a deep glass jar and the sponge was almost a mashed consistency which wasn’t as nice to eat. Other than that I would definitely come back!

All the meals were beautiful, unfortunately one of the guests pizzas was forgotten and undercooked once it arrived. The staff kindly removed the pizza from the bill and all the staff we dealt with were lovely.
