Downtown atmosphere on the Upper East Side.
WHO WE ARE
From Executive Chef, Denis Franceschini and the Orsay / LaGoulue partners Jean Denoyer, Regis Marinier and Hassan El Garrahy, Bar Italia serves authentic Italian cuisine with succulent dishes like Osso Bucco or Veal Milanese plus amazing pastas like Black Truffle Tagliolini or hand made Pear and Teleggio cheese Gnocchi.
We work with our local farmers, growers and purveyors to source products with integrity, flavor and soul, and incorporate these seasonal offerings into our menus nightly.
The Bar Italia experience is about more than just food. A sincere effort to educate our staff on all aspects of food and wine culture is the basis for our service philosophy. The welcoming staff at Bar Italia goes to great lengths to make diners feel at ease, comfortable and well taken care of.
Laid-back, eclectic and unpretentious, Bar Italia is an elegant neighborhood restaurant. Warm hues, soft lighting and an unexpected quirkiness encourage guests to settle in, get comfortable, and have a great time.
Our value-driven wine list features 100 bottles under $100. Our wines, like our food, are never static and change with the seasons. Labels range from interesting newcomers to Old-World classics from small-production winemakers who put as much love and care into their wines as we put into our food.
