Barnellis is part of the Portillo chain. This one is a section of the Portillos on Golf Road. They serve salads, pasta, best fall off ribs in town as well as sandwiches and desserts. The desserts include the best chocolate cake in my world at least. Service is excellent, but the crowds at mealtime will create a longer wait than... More

I started eating at Barnellis many years ago when they started to put them in the Chicago locations. Their pasta is always fresh and the sauces very flavorful. The service is always kind and the wait time is less than most fast food chains. They also have the BEST Strawberry dessert! I have heard the chocolate is always very good,... More

Same restaurant as Portillo's. Different line inside. Best ribs EVER!! It's the sauce & the meat falls off the bones. Basically melts in your mouth. So so Good!!

Food is always good at Portillos no matter which one we go to. I love their salads and beef on a croissant. My hubby has me eating those. He love their fries with al it's any sandwich. Oh don't let me forget their cake shakes. Um

Food is better than Olive Garden and portions are large. Pasta dishes are especially good as are salads. If you need other food, Portillo's is in the next line. Great pair up!

I looked at Portillo's earlier and I commented that Portillo's has other food groups under their umbrella, some within the same building... Surprise this is one of those groups. Very good big salads here enough for two or part for later...lol. If you like to "Construct" your own salad you might be frustrated a little bit but there is a... More

Everything was excellent. The pasta was fresh and the sauce was delicious. I can't wait to go back. We really loved the bread as well. The staff is friendly and on top of it. Highly recommend

This can be the best of two worlds. The Portillos side with the Italian beef, Chicago style hot dog and the flame broiled burgers. Then you have the Barnellis Pasta Bowl side with the Italian concept. Lots of sides, salads and pastas.

My wife is vegetarian so Barnelli's/Portillo's is a great match for us. Their pasta's are a somewhat healthier substitute for Portillo's fries & make a great combination with my Italian Beef.

This was located inside the hot dog place. You order at the counter and find a place to sit inside. It was a large restaurant, and handled the crowd well. I enjoyed the pasta carbonara; very tasty! A welcome warm dinner on a cold rainy night. Friendly staff.
