In the heart of Downtown Barrie Ontario, with some truly incredible waterfront views, you will find my favourite restaurant in town: “147 – Italian Cuisine”
Open Tuesday – Saturday from 5:00pm – 10:00pm, 147 offers incredible Italian Cuisine. And for my wine-o’s out there, they have a substantial wine list – with more than 30 different bottles, many available by the glass.
A relaxed, cozy atmosphere, this restaurant is perfectly decorated and romantically lit.
On the bricked walls hang black and white photos of Hollywood celebrities from the 40’s and 50’s, as well as classic Italian themed images. Black linens keep the vibe of the restaurant cool, and modern.
Take a cozy seat near the back of the restaurant, for gorgeous lakefront views of Kempenfelt Bay. And in the summer months, you have the option to sit in the front of the restaurant, on their outdoor patio.
The team brings forth sophisticated, yet classic Italian dishes to their guests. The concept of 147 from the owners and Chef, is to recreate their childhood memories of enjoying meals around the family dining table.
As a fine Italian dinning restaurant, 147’s focus is on providing the client with quality ingredients, and great value in each plate they create.
During my visit at 147, the amazing Chef and his team prepared an absolute FEAST for myself and my guests!
We enjoyed some refreshing cocktails, (including my favourite – Moscow Mule) and had wine with dinner. Our group chose to have “Family Style” dining, and enjoyed fresh bread, and yummy appetizers like Caprese Salad, the yummiest Calamari, and a killer Charcuterie Board.
In addition to the apps, we enjoyed: the tastiest Meatballs, a stellar Surf and Turf platter, (with steak cooked to perfection) and delicious pastas – including my favourite, one of their signature dishes, the Penne alla Vodka.
But wait, there is MORE! To fill our tummies to the ABSOLUTE MAX, we were also treated to some of the most mouth watering desserts.
The service is here is great! Staff are super friendly, and kind. You feel like family.
147 offers catering for events such as: Weddings, Birthdays, Christenings, Baptisms, Corporate Functions, and more! They also cater to in house parties as well!
Bring your friends or family, for a nice meal out. Or treat your honey on your next date night! You MUST enjoy a meal at this gem of a restaurant.
You can make your reservation to 147 by phone or, book online through open table.
