- Aglio, Olio e Peperoncino (2013) appreciates the “nice aperitivo scene, lovely value lunch, and downright delicious dinner of specials like lemony pasta with prawns; beef tartare; cured pork; oysters, plus awesome steak, fillet and other grilled meats.”
- The New York Times (2012) reports on the recent addition of a kitchen and La Barrique’s new (in 2012) menu: “At both lunch and dinner, diners will find about 15 dishes to choose from, like beef tartare, pasta with lemon, mint and prawns or locally cured Mangalitsa pork.”
- Punch recommends going for “outrageously affordable bottles of natural wines from Italy and France. There is also plenty of champagne on the list brought over from La Barrique’s sister wine bar, Remigio, which specializes in sparkling wines.”
