A word from Barbatella
Barbatella a new kind of restaurant that will grow on you in the same way that the leaves & branches of a grape vine develop out of a shoot: a "barbatella" Barbatella offers an extensive menu that incorporates fresh interpretations of authentic dishes. You will enjoy pasta with typical ingredients from Emilia-Romagna, the Veneto, Tuscany, Puglia & the Adriatic shores. Meat & fish on the rotisserie & the grill or in the deep-fryer & the smoker: whole roast duck, smoked pork baby back ribs, Venetian style meatballs, & much more. In our wood-burning oven we will make signature pizzas with cheeses & garnishes that emphasize a fresh Italian take on a favorite. Another exciting prospect at Barbatella is the production of home-made Italian ices, gelatos & sorbets– available as individual portions to enjoy as you wander around Old Naples. Barbatella has beautiful courtyard setting with views along Third Street. There is a sixteen-seat bar which features 100 wines available by the glass.

    I've eaten in all areas of this restaurant but I still like outside the best. But on a "rainy" Florida night, the booths in the bar are best. I must say I was a but disappointed in the Ravioli. They were much too small and undercooked. Maybe it's because of out-of-season staff changes. The three others with me enjoyed their salmon and lasagne. Martinis were great. I'll go back. When you are used to great food and service, it is disappointing.

    We ate at Barbatella on the 4th of July and even though they were jammed, we were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation and our service was excellent - not too fast and not too slow. We had our two kids with us. One had children's pasta the other had the Margherita Pizza. The pizza was large enough for us all to try a slice. The pizza was about the best we ever had. The adults had one salmon dinner and one black grouper dinner. Each were expertly prepared with sauces that were deliciously complimentary to the taste of the fish but not overbearing. We had enough time to enjoy gelato before the fireworks. Perfect all the way!

    What a pleasant surprise Barbatella turned out to be! We didn't even know it existed, which I guess says something about the owners' marketing strategies! This place is a find! We were there on Wednesday night and enjoyed our own bottle of very good wine with no corkage fee! And they have daily sunset dining specials for $19.50 during the summer months! The food was excellent and our waiter, Aldo, was great! We'll be back for sure!

    This was our first visit to Barbatella. We enjoyed the food and like the variety of the menu items. Dining inside was a little noisy not because of too many customers, but rather the acoustics. Next time we will try to sit outside assuming it won't rain. We definitely will return for another visit.

    Went on a Wed. and had their $19.50 dinner special. Great value for a delicious meal. I had the shrimp and scallops and my husband had the chicken Parm. Both were excellent. Also you can bring your own bottle of wine on Wed. and there is no corkage fee. Makes this a deal not to be missed.

    I must say I was quite impressed with the the place. The food was good, the mood was excellent and I loved the live music. The only issue was the table next to me (outdoors) had two quests plus two dogs. I love dogs.but a place to go out to dinner be it eitherither inside or outside should not allow dogs at the table where food is being served.

    The pizza is quite outstanding, reminds the original Neapolitan one. Salads are also outstanding: the caesar one could be nice with the anchovies, but should be an optional. The ice creams of any type are also on the top, I would suggest also to add a dark bitter chocolate taste. The wine list is a top notch too. Sorry, the outdoor dining could be fine but the smog left by the car traffic is not matching at all with the healthy and tasty food.

    We ate regularly at Barbatela because of its fine Italian cuisine but on Sat 05/10/2014 they drastically changed the menu for the worst trying to Americanize it and winding up no better than the Olive Garden or Pizza Hut. The pasta is no longer served al dente but mushy. The only thing Italian about their chicken panini is the name; we got an AMERICAN (bread) chicken sandwich with RUSSIAN dressing and annoying CUBA music playing in the background. We gently tried to tell the waiter to convey to management our experience and he practically barked back at us to the point where we have decided not to go back.

    When we arrived for our reservation the receptionist met us outside the front door and ushered us to the cafe side of the restaurant - not the beautiful chandeliered green room we saw online. I did not want to embarrass anyone in our foursome with complaints and so did not make a fuss. But there is a big difference in the ambience. We were in dressy casual attire, so I don't get it. Food was good but not outstanding. 3 glasses of wine, one appetizer, 2 pastas, and 2 desserts for $125. A bit pricey for cafe food. Will not return to Barbarella's.

    As always, another great experience! We love to eat outside at Barbatella's. The food is always terrific. The servers always have helpful suggestions for food and wine. We usually ask for Angel, our server on many prior occasions. This time a pleasant mistake was made and we had Angelo this time instead. He was equally good. Our 8 & 10 year old girls enjoy this place as much as us. the live music by the spanish guitarist was nice as well. Our "go-to" appetizer is the Arancini (by far the most amazing rice balls we've ever had. that's not easy, as we are Italian Americans from NYC area.)

We were a little late for our reservation, but called ahead and they were very accommodating. We had a lovely table, outside. The wait staff were attentive and helpful. This was our second great meal at this restaurant.

    The four of us were rudely treated by the maitre'd when we arrived for our reservation. Then we had to stand around waiting for our table. At our outdoor table it was so loud we practically had to yell to each other. Tables were too packed together. Menu was disappointing. Service, which seemed to be made by three different guys, was lousy. Though we requested separate bills for the two couples, they refused to do so. We will not return!

    Barbatella has earned its marks as a vibrant choice in the 3rd Street scene! Dined outside with my London house guests and they were delighted with the food, and not just because it was tasty - they were especially pleased that the portions were not overwhelming but just right. Also appreciated that we were seated exactly at the time of our reservation and parmesan popcorn appeared immediately to nibble on while we decided on wine & firsts & seconds - all made for a lovely evening!

    Everyone in my group enjoyed their dinner and desserts. Sat outside as it was a gorgeous night. Pizza was delicious. Only complaint which is not really a complaint is waiter talked to fast and was hard to understand. He also got sidetracked with other tables. But the food and drinks made up for it. Would definitely recommend and go back.
