This little Italian restaurant is highly recommended. Their ministroni soup is the best around. Make sure you select a couple items as everything on their menu is absolutely delicious. We drive 40 minutes to go here regularly. Do yourself a favour and try this place.

This is a great place for pizza or other famous Italian dishes. The pizza I ordered was dfelicious, and I did not have to wait long. Beer is also served, as well as wine.

My family and I went to the Barrel Italian Kitchen on Wednesday September 6, 2017. We had an excellent dinner of Chicken Wings and Chicken Rice soup for appetizers, followed by a wonderful spaghetti dinner.

For sure check their pricing. Went on-line before ordering and what appears on the on-line menu is not the same pricing when I arrived. Prices were higher. A mistake I will not make again as we won't be ordering from there in the future.

The Barrell is like stepping back in time. I don't think the decor has been updated since it opened in 1974 and definitely has a 1970s vibe (that's not a bad thing). The food was good and portions large; we couldn't finish it all. Service...More
