Barolo by the sea Balboa Island Reviews
not the best spot on Balboa Nov 02, 2012
We hadn't reservation for Friday dinner. Called to some restaurants and they were fully booked. Called to Barolo and they had available seats. Restaurant has a great location in the heart of Balboa Island.
The restaurant was more than half empty which seemed odd for a Friday evening. We choose a table at the window by the sidewalk. Atmosphere was good. Waitress bring us water with ice and focaccia. Focaccia wasn't so fresh, but was warm.
They have a good wine list.
I ordered Stracciatella (chicken broth, spinach, egg), it was salty for me.
Pasta with chicken and vegetables was in general OK, but nothing special and chicken was very dry, not tasty.
For dessert we shared a Tiramisu which was OK.
Service was OK.
Maybe we choose not the best their dishes...Sure, Balboa has better places for this price.
