Went for a Thursday night dinner with a group of four on first table. Although it was discounted food it was not good. Effort was made with presentation of the meals but that is where it ended. Somebody in the kitchen should try the beef...More

Thursday night. Couldn't believe how quiet the place was (Christchurch in general). Christchurch City Council need to get their act together in Christchurch - but that's another topic. Service was great. Food was lovely. Nice decor. We would return.

Dinner on a Wednesday night, so it was pretty quiet. Delicious food! The pork belly was fantastic. The staff were helpful and not intrusive. It was on the pricey side so I would recommend as a treat

Baretta Bar & Restaurant is a little piece of Italy in Christchurch. From the moment you walk through the door you will feel like you have stepped back to another time and place. From the exquisite interior and moody appearance, to the inviting terracotta paved courtyard - Baretta is our interpretation of a classic Italian trattoria with a Kiwi influence.
