We popped in for lunch on Thursday afternoon last week, hoping to make use of their “half price Thursday deal" but it seems this only starts from 5:00pm. Nevertheless we stayed, however we were the only ones there. I’ve never seen it so quiet before....More

Don't bother visiting! The door staff are very rude and arrogant. Tried to visit tonight as part of a Hens night. Obviously 50+ woman are not the crowd they are interested in! As a mother of four young men growing up in Christchurch I am...More

It’s unfortunate that a bar can be ruined by rude and unhelpful staff. We got evacuated due to fire alarm and had paid $25 to get in which was redeemable. After getting evacuated we left because it was absolute chaos outside and they refused to...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.

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.
