Celebrating its 108th 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.

The pre theatre price fix menu was wonderful. Sat in the main dining room. We really enjoyed it. Could hear each other talk without raising our voices even though the restaurant was very busy.

I usually go to Orso for my pre-theater dining and will return back to them next time because Barbetta treated me as if I was part of a grand assembly line. Customer number 5055 on her way in and out. The waiter looked so bored, and I don't blame him for having to repeat the same choices over and over again to all the customers who were squeezed in as many tables as the owner could get in there. I had to ask for refills on my hot tea and my water many times. I wasn't asked if everything was OK until my bill arrived. It is way too obvious that Barbetta is trying to feed as many people as possible in the least amount of time. BEWARE!

This lovely old Italian restaurant has excellent Northern Italian food. The attention given was so good. We were able to sit and talk while enjoying both the food and the ambiance.

Great food and service but needs renovations badly.
It feels frozen in time and smells musty.
