The service and environment is really good, but the types of dishes are less than i thought and it can be better if more hot food available

We went here for my sons 18th birthday dinner and were very disappointed. There was not much selection of food and it was not to the standards it should be at a place like this. Will not come back. However in saying this the seafood was delicious and the deserts. The service was fantastic.

There were 8 of us and everyone of us raved about the food. Let me start with the food. Fresh Oysters and Kilpatrick were exactly that fresh and delicious. The smoked salmon was one of the tastiest I have ever had and the fresh tuna and swordfish was very good. The fresh figs and salmon were very tasty as was... More

Ok let's dispense with the obvious, beautiful, clean, opulent decore. Service was the big shock. So we had a waiter for whom English as obviously a 2nd language which was fine as we are all very easy going patient types. But the big issue was he did not listen. We had to repeat orders several times and more than once... More

The breakfast buffet at II Barocco is superb, consistently good food. Very fresh and a great variety. If there is something you would like that they don't have it is no trouble for them to prepare it for you. The service is wonderful, very friendly and helpful. Very family friendly.
