Fairly small place but food and service were excellent. Presentation of the food was excellent as well. I had the lasagne, it was very good. Their bolognese cause is also very good. I would go back often if I lived there.

Came on a work trip. Had an excellent wine selection. The carpaccio was delicious. The tomato soup was OK. Pasta with mushroom sauce was outstanding. Would definitely go back.

Had dinner at Baroncini's tonight. Bottom line - excellent food but terrible service. Extremely slow and the restaurant was not that busy. Awkward wait staff. Drinks took forever. Feel bad cuz the food was amazing. But don't wanna put up with that terrible service again...More

The chief is Italian and has a good taste, not so cheap but nice high-end place for a couple. I had the rabbit meal and my companion had sea bass meal
