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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "I had heard good things about this restaurant but overall was disappointed. Service was friendly but very slow and I felt our waiter was new on the job. Food was very mediocre and we were seated next to the takeout area which we didn't realize until too late."

  • "Visiting Northern relatives enjoyed eating dinner outside at this popular restaurant and watching the Saturday night life from our table. From the eggplant to the lasagna to the nutella crepe - everything was delicious. And all the while, we were treated to live music from a wonderful guitar performer."

  • "Last year they were the new kids on the block. This year they are resting on their laurels. In attentive service, small portions, bland taste, entitled attitude. It's really too bad. We truly enjoyed it last year, no reason to go back now."

  • "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."

  • "Had a pizza margarita appetizer. Didn't see one piece of basil. Cheese and tomato sauce only. Only Ok. My lamb chops were fair. Very thin. I cook better lamb chops from Costco all the time ~ and I'm not even a good Cook . Service, wine and atmosphere was good ."

  • "Decent restraint....average price for the area. Nothing real special--just a good spot. Lots of activity around it -- active Naples street. Indoor casual area in separate building is very casual --pizza, etc also ice cream area. Some decent wines....available"

  • "Having made a reservation, we waited to be seated at our table for over 1/2 hour only to be seated way on the outside of the courtyard, next to the sidewalk. It was a windy night. This table was not out of the wind--my menu even flew off the table. I have eaten here several times. I will not go back."

  • "Living in old naples we dine out at all of the local hot spots on a regular basis. Barbetella started out a decent place to eat but the food has gone down hill to the point I felt complelled to write this. The service was average and no real issue with that but the food quality was not acceptable. I will not return."

  • "Very loud inside....they need to soften the sound while eating inside"
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Sorry to work backwards but the gelato was the most memorable part of the meal...magnifico! It's THE best I've ever had--icecream or any variation does not normally turn my head. The pizza was very good; nice wood burned crust. Salad was also very good. Fried artichokes were tasty, but batter was a bit thick for my liking. Excellent wine. I will return on my next visit to Naples...a real winner!"

  • "Interesting menu. Octopus. Service was good. Scallop special was good but not many of them. Gluten free Crustini was soggy, and overpriced for a crust of bead. Outdoor dining area is good."

  • "Consistently outstanding food and service. We have dined here many times since it's opening and have brought at least six other couples at various times.Everyone has always had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and ambiance."

    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "One of our favorite dining spots throughout the year, we were happy to bring our house guest and relatives to share a meal and an evening out. While the Pork Roast and Chicken were both good, the Orecchiette (my husband's favorite dish and one he has ordered for the last five visits) was a disappointment. Also, the spinach was rather bland this time around. Hopefully, things will improve on our next visit."

  • "We enjoyed a lovely patio setting and perfect evening weather. The selection of music was for an older clientele - would have much preferred the Spanish-music guitarist who was previously there. Better background music for dinner. As in all of our times at Barbatella we were seated immediately and service was very prompt. And this was on a very busy Saturday at 8 PM. I like the feel of this restaurant - just wish they could move the level of the food up from "average" to match the above average, pretty setting."

  • "We were disappointed with our main meals, very pricey and not heated properly. We didn’t complain, we just left after our entrees. We won’t be back this season."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "While they don't have a specific kids menu and it's a nice but casual grown-up atmosphere, between all the pastas and pizza your kids will be happy. And usually around dessert time a server or manager grabs our son and takes him to the gelato counter to pick out his flavor and custom make a cup or cone with toppings. Very fun! Great wines, delicious fresh pastas. We love it every time!"

  • "Was given a gift certificate for my birthdays dr a reservation weeks in advance And had to wait 45im to be seated and the another 45 min till we were served I don't enjoy eating at 10 at night The table was dirty and my lb chop were so thin and small and burned it was am awful experience will never go back I surprised that they are on open table all of your restrauants are great but not this one"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Service was slow but a simple question to the manager did accelerate the order. Food was average for a lunch menu. Can not comment on the wine list. One of the more beautiful outdoor dining areas in Naples. Tables were far enough apart to separate us from others. This meant we could talk without yelling. Over all good with a return trip planned to verify the food. Given all the good it just may have been an off day for the kitchen."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "I've dined at Barbatella several times now.....enjoyed it very much. You must try their signature drink, Barbatini (I think).....vodka, limoncello, chopped basil, fresh lemon juice....shake/strain & fill with Champagne! Delightful. Mussels are a very good app. I had the Arugula salad & the Pappardelle with mushrooms, spinach, mascarpone, again....delightful. Will definitely go back."

  • "Barbatella is a very fun restaurant with a cool vibe in a great walking area of Naples. However, like most Naples restaurants, it is overpriced for the quality of the food. Don't get me wrong, the food is fine, just nothing special and not at all worth the NYC price point. I would suggest getting a table outside as it is extremely loud in the bar area and just ordering the pizza which is quite good."

  • "We started with drinks at the bar since we were a little early. Our bartender was very personable and attentive. He recommended some great martinis and wines. We were seated at a requested outdoor table. However, my husband's seat was right in the path from the kitchen to the patio, so he was very annoyed with our table. It was crowded, so we did not say anything. Our food was delicious. We all had a very tasty Caesar salad and the bread that was served was excellent. Our main meals ranged from steak to pasta, and all were delicious. I would definitely come back and recommend to others. I would be a little more specific about our seating request."

  • "On an otherwise beatiful evening, just after we had ordered wine, a rain shower arrived. We were seated outside to best enjoy the jazz and the weather. The staff did a superb job. They reseated us and managed to keep everything going smoothly in what could have easily become a chaotic situation."
