the food was very good, but unfortunately there was a great lack in service. It is nice to have your water served at the table, but then you have to be checked on that regularly, which had not happened. We were not asked if we would like dessert or coffee althought we would have and no thank you when leaving... 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 while he sorted him self out! Eventually we where told that one of our members... More

We decided to go for a family dinner at around 5:30pm. I phoned the restaurant to book a table and was told that the restaurant was booked out but we could have a table in the lounge which we then booked.

Used Bookme so we got a great deal, but the meal is worth it no matter what the price. Started with smoked salmon and beef carpaccio. My wife had a Gorgonzola pizza that was a unique mix of cheese, nuts, pears and rocket salad. I had the beef filet and it was a magnificent piece of meet properly prepared with... 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.
