We had a very good dinner at Bari. The atmosphere is nice and the food was excellent. The only issue we had is with how close some of the tables were to each other; we felt like we were dining with the couple next to us. The wine and cheese selections were very good. The rigatoni and the carbonara were... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Memphis. My wife and I went to Spain over the holidays, and have been missing that Mediterranean-style food. We went here the other night for a date night, and as usual we were not disappointed. We started out with the olives, which were fresh and plump, several cheeses, and the prosciutto di... More

A group of 6 of us went for my wife's birthday. The service was Excellent even though we had a large group. Our waiter was able to describe every item question and very helpful in making selections. The meat and cheese platter was an excellent starter for our group. The actual food was very authentic and delicious. If you've ever... More

Bari is a wonderful, warm place with great food, an interesting (all-Italian) wine list and friendly, attentive service. It's hard to imagine a more pleasant and rewarding dinner. The portions are not too big, so you can taste a number of dishes, and they are happy for you to share dishes. Jason Severs, the chef, does incredibly good things with... More

We LOVE this place. We have been many times and they have never let us down. It truly brings back memories of the southern Italian coast. They have a huge cheese selection and a good wine list. All of the wines are Italian. Don't expect to get huge portions of pasta with red sauce here (go to a national chain... More

The restaurant is in the Overton Square area of Memphis. There are a lot of bars, clubs, theaters and everything else around. It's a good place for a nice quiet dinner at the start of an evening of walking around and poking into and out of nearby spots. The restaurant itself is comfortable, simple looking but in a classy way.... More

Got in early so no reservation was needed, but not sure how crowded it gets at night. The food was pretty good and service was decent. The food was kind of Italian style fine dining. The menu was a little small, but the food we had was good. The steak was excellent, and the strawberry desert was really good. Price... More
