We went here for dinner last night with a few friends before going to a show. The service was good. The food was very tasty. I did expect the food to come out hotter than it did. The portion size in my opinion is not large enough - I expected more for the price, but at least it was flavorful. I'm sure I will come here again if I'm in... read more

Saw this restaurant on Groupon and decided to give it a try and glad I did. It's a quiet kind of romantic spot right in the heart of downtown. Great happy hour menu. I ordered a small pizza with a happy hour Frozen Bellini for $10, next time I'll try the stuffed mushrooms. I love this place and the pizza is in my top 6. I love the pi... read more

Great restaurant for dinner with your spouse, family, or friends after visiting any events downtown, food is good and the atmosphere is calm yet thematic. They're open until midnight which is great, as they have a parking garage adjacent that offers reasonable rates during events, and convenient parking when eating there after. ... read more

My daughter and I had a girl's night at Birraporetti's and The Alley Theater. Food was great and the waiter, Otto, made sure we were on time to the performance.

Had the Straw & Hay and the Pollo Griglia both were excellent dishes. The food came out very quick and the service was great. Make sure to make a reservation.

Atmosphere is appealing, decor hasn't changed in years.  Still, the restaurant offers a visually appealing "bistro" look and is clean.  Food was delivered quickly, was hot, and tasted good.  Yes, Birrapretti's must be classified as an American "chain restaurant".  However, this restaurant over the years has maintained an upper level ... read more

Pretty typical Italian restaurant
This isn't the best restaurant in the world, but the service and food quality is really consistent and it's in a fun location downtown, so that's great.

We have been here many times before performances at theatres in the area.  The food is pretty much old school Italian with a few different items on the menu.  I tend to try new things every time, but have very much enjoyed the baked penne.  My husband always gets spaghetti with Italian sausage and eats every bite.  My daughter is a b... read more

Several of us went hunting for Italian after the Super Bowl and this place was it. The spicy ravioli sauce and fantastic escargot was my play, though our group of 8 had everything from pizza to cheese bread with all types of pasta. Service was top notch. Atmosphere was that of an older classic Italian restaurant. I would certainly go... read more

Perfect date night atmosphere
Birraporetti's is a lovely restaurant. I loved the atmosphere and the food was tasty. They have a nice selection of spirits as well. Only down side was the smoky air later in the night. I am not sure if it was because of the shift with the added lounge singers.

5 stars for excellent service. Had an 8pm show to attend and could not get downtown till 7. They suggested we call in our order ahead of time and our food was ready when we arrived so we were able to enjoy dinner and get to the show on time.

New Year's Eve last minute plans turned out to be a wonderful night. The food was wonderful. I had salmon and my friend had Fettuccine Alfredo. Both super yummy. For dessert we had tirramisu and creme brúle. Both the best we have ever had. There was also a lovely jazz band that played into the new year. Simply a wonderful night.
