This place has really gone down hill. The food is overcooked and tasteless. Very dissapointing! Have been here many times and the food gets worse each time.

Went with a group of over twenty. Was thoroughly impressed with the friendly, personal and efficient service (so lacking in restaurants generally) and the speed with which the food arrived. Also, the portions were generous and it was delicious. I will definitely be heading back!

What can I say??? It's like nonna would make. Amazing traditional food fantastic friendly atmosphere you feel like you are having dinner with family not a busy restaurant. This place is a gem in Bournemouths crown. We love Barolo. The muscles are the best so fresh and tasty and my hubby loved his steak. Thanks to all the team.

We had a party of 12 to celebrate a friend's birthday, they were very busy with two other birthday parties and a hen-night, but we still got excellent service. All our meals arrived within a few minutes of each other. The food was great and the staff were friendly and attentive. No-one had any complaints. Well done.

Staff could not be more friendly resulting in an enjoyable experience enhanced by the excellent food sensibly priced. I have been to Barolo's on several occasions and have always enjoyed my meals there.

recently visited for meal. packed. had a table near the door. was very cold. The staff were very friendly. The starter of lasagne was ok and the veal Marsala( all 3 slices) was very tough and an overly creamy sauce. probably the worst i had out if honest. i would have preferred a little less meat but better quality. didn't...

What a wonderful restaurant! I have eaten here on numerous occasions and always greeted with a cheerful friendly welcome and almost made to feel part of the family! Fantastic atmosphere (if you like traditional Itallian establishments) and the staff are excellent (very family feel to the place). Top class service, good food and excellent wine - what more can you... More

Came here today for lunch with a friend and our two daughters, haven't been for years, so I have to say we had a lovely meal, the waiters were very friendly and nothing seemed to be to much trouble. Decor is a bit dated, hasn't changed in about 20 years, but this dose not effect the food.

Came here on Valentine's Day. Have been here a few years ago so wanted to come again. The effort made for Valentine's Day was lovely. Red and white balloons a rose for the female and great atmosphere. Food was out of this world. I had the chicken and it was beautiful. Potatoes were the highlight and veg was very tasty... More
