It's a great hotel but if any of you are looking to save some $$ then book it at referer.us/8/GoodHotelDeals They usually have some pretty good deals on there!

Our experience at the restaurant and inn were mediocre, but being ignored by the staff regarding a followup quality/billing complaint is inexcusable. They did not return phone calls, and when I did catch them in they did not follow through as they said they would. A big disappointment.

This past July I had a gathering for about 20-25 people. I was a little nevous after reading some of the reviews below. Our gathering did not include dinner. just hors d'oeuvres and drinks. The food was excellent- we had compliments from all our guests on how fabulous the food was. We especially liked the duck wontons and the sausage puff pastries. The waiters and waitresses were fantastic; friendly and efficient. Our guests drinks were constantly being replenished. The atmosphere was wonderful. As a matter of fact, the reason I am writing this in mid August is because yesterday we met up with some of the guests and they were still raving about Baracelli Inn!

Pros: Food and Service

Cons: pricy, but very good

Baricelli's has always been my favorite special occasion restaurant. Unfortunately on Friday, May 1st, our anniversary ,it changed my mind. The Piggy in a blanket was so spicy that I gave it to my husband to eat, which was not explained on the menu or by the server. When we went to order our dessert, we were told that half of the items weren't available. The bread was tough and chewy and the drinks cost as much as a dinner. I realize that things are tough and Mr. Minillo has adjusted his menu, but we may have to rethink where we have our special occasion dinners.

Pros: Beautiful atmosphere - grew up there in childhood

Cons: Very price drinks - food spicy

Other than its fancy exterior, not much else was worth raving about this restaurant. The staff treats you with an attitude and create interesting terms such as "Cleveland water" to make fun of people who don't order bottled water. They jam and cram you into a small corner, where you can feel the breath of the person next table, or literally have your chair in the hallway... but you are expected to pretend that this is supposed to be an upscale romantic place. The prices however, do resemble that of an upscale place. The wait however, it what really gets me. After all that anticipation, the food is either unimpressive, don't come out well or too small in portion to call a dish. I thought they made a mistake and gave me Tapas and charged me for a Main Entree. Yes, I was pretty fed up, but you have to wait as long as the food to pay your bills and get out of there. For a hundred a pop, I went home hungry.

In summary, I think this place plays a game of King's new cloth, where the staff makes you feel you are unworthy, fooling the patrons into thinking that they are in an upscale place. I had better food anywhere else in Little Italy. If you are an ocassional diner to good restaurants, this trick work for you and whoever you are trying to impress. If you have a good palate, and dined at all kinds of places, you know that this game doesn't work, neither is its poor atmosphere, its bad attitude, the quality and quantity of food, as well as the hole in your wallet that makes you want to fly to NY and get a real meal.

Pros: Fancy building, you might enjoy it more from outside

Cons: Service with an attitude, tight quarters, long waits, poor food, high prices

We went there for a belated Valentine Day celebration ( two weeks after, because of the snow). Food was great . My wife had surf & turf. I had the Scallops. Desert was good too .
It was pricey, but you know that going in. My wife enjoyed herself and felt pampered, was worth it!

Myself and 5 others spent New Years Eve there, and we all regretted it. As a life-long Clevelander, I've always believed the Baricelli Inn to be one of the nicest restaurants in town. So as you can imagine going there for the first time was to be a special event. The food was completely over priced. Had any of our 6 meals been delicious, the price would not have mattered. The problem was not one of us enjoyed our meal. Beware of the specials!! They're 3 times the amount of the menu items and twice as small! $600 later, we had nothing to show for our meal except major disappointment.

I usually have trouble sleeping away from my familiar room, but I really liked this hotel. The walls are very thick and noises from adjacent rooms can't be heard. They have a well-stocked vending machine for late night snack cravings, which you can eat while watching a pay-per-view movie on their TVs. The selection in movies and channels are awesome. Really nice rooms at this hotel - if you hate staying away from home as much as I do, you pretty much forget you're at a hotel.

What a wonderful evening! My spouse and I went there last year (2004) for an anniversary celebration, and were so impressed with the food, wine and service, that we went back again this year. We've rarely been so pleased with a restaurant. The Inn is in a lovely old stone house, and dining on the glassed porch was very romantic as the sun was setting. The cheese served there is also made there, and I highly recommend the platter on which they offer five or seven different types, with a variety of crackers, nuts and fruit. Very enjoyable. The seafood (with a delicious risotto) and pork with apples were perfectly prepared and excellent. It's very expensive, but you will have a very special evening.

Over-priced, over-hyped! First impression: our table for 6 was wedged so far into a corner that 1/2 of the party couldn't have gotten out, if they wanted to. Second impression: waitress wearing a white oxford cloth shirt - that was totally wrinkled! Looked like she grabbed it from the bottom of the laundry basket! Most of us ordered from the menu, but one of our party chose one of the "specials" that the waitress mentioned, a sampler platter with 6 small servings - waitress conveniently forgot to mention that the price for that "special" was $80.00! Food was fine, but be prepared to just hand over the credit card and not complain - maybe they can use the extra profits to buy an iron so their employees at least look the part of a pretentious restaurant.

Located in the heart of Cleveland and overlooking Little Italy this 20th century brownstone mansion has been converted into a seven room inn. Each room has it's own private bath and different decors in each. The rooms are well furnished with antiques and Italian linnens. A complimentary breakfast is included, they also have a full service restaurant and a wonderful cheese shop.

Completely unacceptable service for the price point.
Owner has contempt for the public who stays at his inn or would clearly superivse personnel who have little if any experience in the hospitality industry.
Special occasion doused by indifferent unprofessional staff. The place is on the downturn. The owner should take note

Despite the accolades that Baricelli Inn has garnished, I have to say I was disappointed with my Valentines Day experience. Our reservation was at 9:00 p.m. and while we were seated rather promptly, it took us, a party of two, 2 hours and 45 minutes to complete dinner--outrageous! We sometimes waited 30-40 minutes between courses. While my date's quail was delicious, my special fish dish was bland, especially since they had to make an "ingredient change" of which I was not informed until my meal was served. I may try the Inn again on a non-holiday, but not soon.

The meal was expensive, but it was worth it. The serving staff pamper you. We sat on the enclosed porch in the winter - I expected a draft but it was nice and cozy. Very romantic - great for a special occasion.

The food here is probably some of the most expensive in Cleveland, but nothing disappointed. Especially luxurious was the steak and lobster appetizer. It was fine dining indeed.
