It was Valentines Day and we were very lucky that someone canceled their reservation here! Stephanie, as we found out was a new waitress, did a great job and we never knew she was new. The food was served promptly, was very good and hot. My wife, who is straight off the boat Italian loved her Salmon dish and my... More

The WORST!!!! We reserved a private room back in early November, even spoke with Chef Sarah to confirm and then confirmed again. Got there - no room - was told another group came in and they didn't have a table so gave them our room. We were told could take a table in dining room or go somewhere else. No... More

This was my first visit to this restaurant. I was not aware you needed a reservation to dine here. My friend and I were on our way to meet the third friend in our party, when we received a call from him asking if anyone had made a reservation. I was taken by surprise a little, and a little put...

Based on TA reviews I suggested that we have our business update discussion over a meal at Barresi's. We were not disappointed. The room has a old world feel to it. Charming and relaxed at the same time. Friendly and efficient service. And the food just outstanding. We shared the calamari for our opening round - perfectly cooked. I had... More

We enjoyed our first meal here, a coworker had suggested it as the best Italian restaurant in Cincinnati. The food was delicious and freshly made. The zippoli bread basket that they bring out is the most delicious kind of bread I have had and I would come back just for that! The food was very good, portions are reasonable and... More

Excellent traditional Italian meals can be had here. They have very thin sliced and tasty veal. They had lasagna as a special and it really melted in my mouth. The bread is fried and is delicious. They also offer Italian beer and numerous wines.

We decided to give this place another try after seeing it on OpenTable. We had not been there for 15 years or so. The restaurant is not easy to find, it is on a side street, a few miles south of the Kenwood Towne Centre. The decor could use an update. Food is very good, much better than any Italian... More

The staff is friendly. The waiter was nice but it was obvious he had little experience with knowing how to present a cocktail. The appetizer was good. The entrees were small for the price. Take a sweater, the place is cool in temperature. Just not as polish as it used to be. You had to ask for a side of... More

Staff was attentive and worked hard to serve. The food tasted good but the portions were on the small side for the price. Not a good value!

The food at Barresi's is good, but prices are high and the menu has changed to a la carte. They do offer the old options, but only if you ask for it. Our server was friendly and attentive. I was impressed that they had no problems when my 2 year old was running around, but they did have us in... More

In the heart of Deer Park, a Cincinnati Suburb just west of Kenwood, resides a treasure. Barresi's has been a local landmark for years and has grown from six tables in a cafe-like setting to twenty-eight linen draped tables. Barresi's is beloved by its patrons for its authentic Italian cuisine; a blend of tastes from the southern olive oil region near Calabria, and the northern city of Genoa.

The extensive menu offers something for every palate, from traditional Italian pastas, a delicious variety of fresh seafood, to signature veal and beef entrees. Each dish is carefully prepared, using old family recipes, and the result is a taste that defies description. Generous portions satisfy even the heartiest of appetites and every meal is accompanied by our famous Zeppoles. Service is meticulous and unobtrusive and the seasoned staff is dedicated to creating a unique dining experience. Patrons return to Barresi's for special occasions, holidays, or simply to indulge themselves with an incredible meal. Classical flavors combined with flawless service ensure that you and your guests will enjoy your evening with us.
