Testa Barra Kitchen & Cocktails

Vibrant Italian-American Essentials

Opened in 2017, Testa Barra is an upbeat restaurant from co-chefs Mike Baldwin and Gabriella Baldwin, inspired by a spin on modern Northern Italian cuisine. This local neighborhood haunt churns out thin, hand-tossed pizzas as well as scratch-made pasta variations from love and much more.

Testa Barra reimagines modern Italian cuisine with a twist! Our Director of Operations & Sommelier, Jeffrey Baldwin, guides our mixology team to keep evolving our beverage program using high-quality ingredients and refined spirits to craft contemporary cocktails.

Our talented bar team marries classic recipes with modern concepts, fresh herbs and hand-squeezed juices to create innovative libations. Level 2 Sommelier Brian Herbon has developed a wine menu that features delightful old and new world flavors.

Years later, the restaurant is now busier than ever, and the catering division has grown by leaps and bounds! We are able to cater any event…from small intimate dinner parties, to weddings of 200 people or more. See our Catering menus for ideas on how we can help make your next special event a very memorable one.
