There's flocked wall paper, opulent gilt furniture, glorious big spaces with beautiful original wooden flooring from whatever the building originally was pre quake - I can't remember. And then outside, there's a complete...More

Can't fault the chef the food was lovely. That is about as far as it went. Staff are completely average and rude.

On a night out with friends, we decided to try Baretta out. Once we arrived the bouncer was talking and messing around with friends, before his friends left he was slapped in his groin and took awhile to recover! We were waiting for five minutes...More

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.
