Celebrating its 118th Year, Barbetta is the oldest restaurant in New York still owned by its founding family. Barbetta is also New York's oldest Italian restaurant and the oldest restaurant in the Theater District. This three-fold distinction has earned it landmark status by the Locali Storici d'Italia. In a glittering interior decorated with 18th century Italian antiques Barbetta serves the cuisine of Piemonte, Italy's northwestern most region. In summer, its exuberantly verdant garden with century-old trees and scented with the blooms of wisteria, oleander, jasmine and gardenia make it a most sought-after site for al fresco dining.

    There is an attractive outdoor garden which is a lovely place to dine in nice weather. The indoor space is stuffy and unappealing. Service was very good and they are mindful of the need for diners to get to the theater. Food was just okay.

    The garden at Barbetta is a lovely respite from the hustle and bustle of the city-not to mention the exquisite interior. Eduardo was such a charming gentleman and added a warm and fun factor to the evening. My food was beautifully prepared and presented. No wonder this was my Milanese Father's favorite over the many years. Thank you, cannot wait to return.

    Your garden is the prettiest I have seen in NYC however your food needs improvement. My friend's chicken was dry and my salmon was overcooked although the cucumbers were a nice addition.

    Food was good. I think you need to update the menu. Seems it’s been the same thing for a long while. Very uninspired by the puree this and that vegetables or potatoes. I’ll stop here.
