We attended a special event in a room that was impeccably decorated. The drinks were excellent and the staff very attentive. The food presentation was wonderful and delicious. The regular restaurant had lively music and was crowded but looked like everyone was having a good time and enjoying their food. I definitely would go here again. Allow some time cause... More

This was our first time to Barone's. Nice welcome from the owner who took us to our table (choice of booth or table). We brought our own bottle of wine ($18 corkage fee). Our waitress offered to decant it for us. As the evening went along, just about every table had a multi-generational family. It appeared to us that the... More

Don't let the exterior appereance of the building fool you! Our uber driver recommended this place so we decided to take a chance. We were greated by the server in a very unconventional way which I'm going to assume it was a mistake. "I know you are in a hurry so I'll rush you order" we told her we weren't... More

I was in Pleasanton for a workshop with a number of colleagues and after 2 days of pretty intense discussions it was time to unwind and relax over a few drinks and food. What a perfect place, we had our own room so we didn't disturb anyone else in the (busy) restaurant. Staff were very attentive and kept the wine... More

Have seen this place numerous times as I stay next door at The Rose Hotel but never tired it till recently. What a big mistake...that is to have waited soooo long to give this place a shot.

I had moved out of the area and not been to Barone's in more than 10 years. A trip back to the area and meeting with old friends suggested that we meet up at Barone's. It was a good idea. My friends had never been. I'm hoping that will now change because they too noticed the impeccable service, the menu... More
