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

So we just entered Baretta and we were having a couple of drinks when the Bouncer very rudely asked us to leave Pub. And when we asked why, he literally pushed us out. I'm sure Bouncers have to deal with different kinds of people but this kind of behaviour is unacceptable really. We've been there before and loved it. But... More

We bought a voucher which gave us two mains plus a bottle of house wine. Absolutely great value. The only downside was the small amount of side vegetables on the mains with no recommendation from staff we would need to order extra. Great service. Nice outside courtyard. Parking was problematic on the evening we went.

A birthday celebration and what can I say the staff were magnificent and the food was great. The atmosphere was really awesome and although we went early for the birthday dinner it was really great. The staff were so great and really made you welcome and feel part of a great family when we were there. WELL DONE LOVELY PEOPLE... More

Love Baretta as both a nightclub, bar and as a place to dine. Their menu is creative, and very well executed. The dishes satisfying almost all tastes, but not leaving you feeling bloated or full , as other "pub" feeds can.

A friend and I ate at Baretta on Saturday night. Italian. Good atmosphere and great service. Starters both delicious and good value. My friend had Pork Belly. Looked interesting and good overall value as it was a hearty serving. However I had the fish of the day. Monk Fish. An interesting designer looking meal but far too sparse for the... 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.
