Wonderful food, amazing service. We were a group of 8, have asked for a table away from the entrance, the table was "hidden" behind the bar which was really good - it felt we had our own private space. Happy with the quality of food,...More

Have visited this Italian inspired restaurant a few times now and always find the food to a high standard, great friendly service, good beverage selection and half price pasta nights are worth a visit.

Had some friends leaving NZ so went for some drinks. The toilets, both male and female, were disgusting. Would not return as the bar is dirty and the staff are rude.

I chose Baretta for my birthday drinks and nibbles. It was quiet, and was good for my friends of 20 people. The Antipasto Quattro @ $74 was excessive for what it was. We ran out of bread and when I asked for more bread was...More

Baretta do fantastic pizzas, and that’s just what I felt like for lunch yesterday. It was a lovely hot day so we sat outside in the court yard. There were only about 6 other people dining, probably the quietest we have seen it. I ordered...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.
