“This restaurant has great ambiance. I absolutely love their menu. Very unique dishes. I highly recommend the Beet pasta or the mushroom risotto.  I love the wine selections they have to offer and the service couldn’t have been any more spectacular!” – Jen

“Testa Barra is amazing. Beautiful space, great food, and amazing service. Our server Kyle did a great job and made the best old fashions. Jeff Baldwin even came by and went out of his way to make sure we had an amazing evening. The calamari was the best any of us have had, and my scallops were perfect. We were all really impressed with the attention to detail, and how well every part of the dining experience was addressed. We will be back frequently.” – Jason V.

“Great service, the food is and has been incredible everytime we have came here. Drinks are great, they even have a specialty cart you can order highlighted drinks from. Great experience time and time again” – Aaron V.
