I was disappointed; my husband really liked his chocolate cake dessert. I ordered the salmon appetizer and asked our server whether it would be a meal with the cheesecake dessert. She emphasized that that appetizer was very small and suggested a salad. She did not tell me that the one I ordered, spinach, beets, etc, was a full meal, so... More
Food was phenomenal. Excellent selection of Italian wines. We were in Italy a few months ago and really enjoyed Baroncini's Soave wine.
The lunch special is pretty good at ten bucks. One of the better places in Iowa City at lunchtime, but then the bar is pretty low on this town. Bread and olive oil. Then a pasta dish or a second plate ("secondo" in Italian). Watch out for rare salmon though. I'd rate this "discreto" rather than "molto buono". 3.5 stars.
There is Italian and Italian. Pizza Pasta ... or real food. Baroncini is real food. Excellent steak, perfectly cooked (not so easy in the US when you like your sirloin to be still bleeding in the plate). Friendly service, cozy place with little boxes for privacy. Highly recommended for a couple dinner !

My daughter and I had a great lunch here. It has a polished yet relaxed atmosphere. Service was excellent. We both had the Capellini AI Frutti DI Mare which is the seafood pasta and a great bottle of red wine. Their wine list is very extensive. They gladly substituted the the capellini for tagliolina pasta for my daughter's dish. We... More
Baroncini is an unexpected Italian treasure in college town, Iowa City. Pastas are perfectly prepared to order. The setting is quaint and conversation friendly. Service was right on target with knowledgeable waitstaff. While there was a wait to receive entrees , it was largely because everything is made to order so no overcooked pasta.
