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.
