Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have dined at Barolos for many years. It is a great dining experience. The food is excellent modern Italian. The wine list ranges from reasonable quality wines to top quality wines and are priced accordingly with some wines in the $40 range. The staff...are all friendly and efficient. It is one of Brisbane's true treasures.More

My wife and I have recently had our third meal at Barolos in Toowong. We have both really enjoyed our visits. The service and knowledge of staff is outstanding and matches the presentation of food. Daily specials add to the variety of the menu and...the wine list is extensive.More

We were working in Brisbane, our Hotel a short walk from the doors of this marvellous restaurant, Borolos. It was told us, " This is the very best Italian Restaurant in Australia". So it may well be if our experience is the example. The Maitre...D gave us 'The Eye' from which he determined that we mere workers might appeciate his efforts. Since he had such obvious good taste in approval we left everything in his hands, Wine "White, a Pinot Griegougious was fruity deliciousness. It washed the crispy Truffled toasts quite away.

My charming dinner companion seemed pleased with his fishy dish, with myself settling for the crispy pork. Ooh OH, what a good choice. I was simple impressed and so too will you when you take the time to dine in Borolos. CYA.More

The experience I have from the staff when greeted at the door was 5/5 they were very welcoming, asking for any seating or location preference. Which is quite nice to see. Then another 5/5 for the prompt addition of table service small things which were...placing your napkins on each person. And when pouring drinks holding a ha d behind their backs which shows they are trained with amazing table mannerisms to Only keep the hands needed to be free. The food menu was exciting full of interesting things to choose From, I chose the special which was the new style fish in a broth. The flavours of this dish were incredible. The staff were always over checking if there were any alterations that needed to be done. Or if they could be of any further assistance. During the course of our stay. Barolos would have to be one of the most amazing places I’ve ever had food at Due to ; Reasonably priced menus Experienced staff with amazing customer service skills Chefs that cook the most incredibly delicious food And just an amazing venu. Thank you all for a pleasurable dinnerMore

We came for dinner and had an excellent meal. The scollops, as a starter, were superb and each of pastas were great. All the dishes were very tasty and looked great. One of the best Italian places I have been to for a long time.

The main meals were okay (a bit over salted) . .But the oysters (from Tasmania) .. . chocking. We ordered "natural" oysters we got seasoned (with vinaigrette), terrible. We got new ones, this time they were swimming in an extreme salt liquid ..... uneatable. We...later found out that these oysters most likely had been stored in a bottle. The waitress was nice but a little bit too “friendly”. When passing our table she dipped into our conversation, who asked for her opinion? Staff, otherwise all together nice.More

A group of 8 of us went for a long lunch. We all shared Bruschetta for starters which was very filling and well done, then chose individual dishes afterwards Everyone was complimentary and the service was terrific. My main was Spaghetti marinara with chilli and...was very well done with a decent chilli kick. We shared cheese platters after which had tremendous variety. In summary, a very high class offering but also priced at a premium level . Nonetheless a very pleasant long lunchMore
