Walked in, the 3 of us were sat at a table big enough to seat 20, were given a glass of water and a menu. Walked out 10 minutes later

We were 2 couples dining here. Felt the service at the start was very slow. Waited nearly 10 mins at the bar to be acknowledged by someone even though there was just one other small group at bar and staff were walking backwards and forwards....More

It was a very nice style restaurant. I loved the decor and the theme of the place. The food was good. The main dishes were a little spicy for me but I still enjoyed the food. Wait staff were good. Would definitely go back.

It's nice to visit an Italian restaurant that doesn't resemble the traditional style. The interior was gorgeous, as was the food. Our meal deal was great value & the servings very generous. I got a full chicken! Highly recommended this establishment.

Baretta has the most fabulous décor - Italian palazzo meets Texas bordello. 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

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.
