It was a dark and stormy night. OK, not dark and stormy, but significantly snowy. But the atmosphere inside "The Root" was cozy and inviting, with a great view of the snow-covered golf course. My partner and I shared Chiff Choff to start. This is a traditional mix of chicken giblets, tomato, mushrooms and peppers, and it was HOT. Generous... More

Our daughter and her fiance invited the 2 families to an"engagement dinner" at Barsanti's. The rascals got married before the dinner so we were treated twice. The food was great, service was excellent (even though the place was extremely busy) My prime rib was among the top 6 I have ever had and my wife loved her perfectly done lobster... More

Excellent, friendly and knowledgeable staff. I rate the meal I had 4 out 5. The bourbon pecan chicken was amazing! The risotto very flavourful but needed to be more creamier texture. I would recommend them.

A somewhat hidden gem on the outskirts of town. Great food (try the prime rib) and wonderful service in a nice dining atmosphere. Dining room overlooks the Root River Golf Course which is an added bonus. Reasonable prices too. All in all, one of the city's better restaurants.

I learned to golf on this golf course and still visit it today, if only to eat at barsanti's restaurant. The food is great and prices are fair.

Part of a group of 20+ people for dinner. Menu selections were varied and interesting. Wine selection was good and reasonably priced. I had the pickerel which was excellent and all the other diners I spoke with were very complimentary about the meal and service.

We went for dinner here to celebrate some family events. Our waitress was excellent and was very patient with our large group and with my grandparents who do not speak English. We had several appetizers which were all delicious and the wait time between them and our entrees was perfect. I had the cheese ravioli which were amazing! No matter... More
