We love this restaurant but for whatever reason, we always get the WORST table, no matter how early we make the reservation. We were looking for a leisurely, romantic dinner but we ended up at a really tiny table wedged up against the kitchen door..we could not move our chairs and inch either way and needed a shoe horn to get in our chair. As a result, we never got comfortable and hurried to finish so we could stretch our arms and legs. I would suggest taking out a table along that wall and spacing them out anlittle more. Lost income, yes, but at least diners will return. For the cost, I felt a little cheated out of the finer dining experience and could not enjoy the ambiance. The food is amazing though and the service was great too. No complaints there at all. Would recommend but make sure you specify which table you want or dont want.

147 Italian fare is truly delicious. The atmosphere is upscale but not so much that you wouldn’t be comfortable there in casual business dress. The decor is lovely and the service excellent. However the guest of honour is the food. Tasty, authentic and definitely worth a try.

We enjoyed our food. Aisle was so narrow, my husbands chair kept being bumped and wait staff knocked his coat off chair twice. Sitting beside kitchen door and cash register was horrible.

We found the food and atmosphere was great. I had booked for the Barrielicious event, so limited menu selection. We will attend again later in the month. To view the full menu. I would recommend this restaurant for some fine Italian dining!

Fantastic as usual!! The atmosphere is terrific - rustic and warm. You are welcomed as soon as you walk in the door and the friendly, attentive service continues throughout your meal. And then there is the food - soooo good!! After this last visit to 147, it is safe to say this continues to be my favourite restaurant hands down!!

There were four of us and for the most part our meal was probably more than ok....one person totally loved everything about his meal....I ordered soup and it wasn't very warm but I did eat it anyway....one person ordered the pizza and just felt it was a lot of money for something that had sparse toppings....we would have loved to have a coffee with our dessert and when we were never offered any, we asked for some and our waiter told us he guessed he could brew a pot but when we requested decaf, he said, oh no they didn't have any.....we were really surprised that a restaurant would not have coffee on their menu....be we survived with out it....lol....will we go back?...probably, as we have been told by a few people that their regular menu is far better than the Barrielicious menu.

Excellent authentic Italian! We really enjoyed our dinner, started with the yummiest bread, followed by a salad and my husband had the rice balls, both excellent. My main was the pasta primavera which I really enjoyed. The pasta was definitely homemade! My husband had the rib special which he really enjoyed. And for desser, we both had the cannoli which we enjoyed asa well. Also enjoyed a nice bottle of NZ Sauv Blanc while there. Highly recommend.

We visit 147 as frequently as we can! Hands down the best date night location in Barrie. The service is exceptional, the food is dynamite and the restaurant is beautiful. GREAT atmosphere. AMAZING staff. EXCELLENT food. I mean excellent food. Always crave more the next day! SO DELICIOUS. Highly recommend you visit 147 as soon as possible. You are made to feel like family. You will not find another place in Barrie quite like it. 5 stars!!! The breadsticks alone will make you swoon!

Disappointed especially since I had been there before. We had reservations for 7:45 and waited 15 minutes to get seated. The lamb shank that was featured online for Barrielicious was not on the menu and that dish was the reason why we booked 147 in the first place. We discussed it with our server who told us they changed the menu but have not changed it online yet. The apps were good and we definitely expected that goodness to follow through in to our main course. My husband had the steak which was tough, dry, and did not taste very good. I ordered the chicken scaloppine which was supposed to be in a mushroom marsala sauce - there was no marsala and literally only 2 tiny mushrooms cut in half. As for the seasonal vegetables; it was a quarter of a red pepper and a slice of baby bok choy (maybe it was a half). I expected more vegetables. The mashed potatoes were also nothing to write home about. Dessert was okay. We also TRIED to order espresso and were told that during their renovations, the espresso machine went missing. Funny thing, 147 did not look like it had been renovated. Pricing for the menu was a joke because absolutely every main course is an upgrade. We will not be going back. Hopefully 147 sees this and can accept this as constructive criticism. Good luck to you 147.

First time at this restaurant. It was very busy and possibly louder than usual due to barrielicious. Good food, nice restaurant. Sat by the kitchen “window” which probably was a busier spot than other areas of the restaurant. Service was okay-took a long time to get our second glass of wine and our bill.

Food and service where very good. Even with a full restaurant, the noise level was very low.first restaurant I’ve been to that actually knows how to cook calamari properly.the portions are big, more than enough to fill you up. Everybody at our table took some leftovers home. Will definitely eat at 147 again!

Had a great evening. Very busy however our reservation was delayed by 30 minutes which was a bit over the top. Ordered wine at the bar and due to the delay they discounted which was a nice touch. Finally, they have real pizza ! The meal portions were large and all had a great time. Service was fantastic. Look forward to coming back real soon....
