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.

We found inside too noisy, and they happily moved us outside. We chose the sunset menu which included 3 sumptuous courses. The eggplant Parmesan was surprisingly not fried, and superb. I asked for the salmon cooked thru, but it was still perfectly moist on the inside. The gelato for dessert was ample and delicious. Service was excellent and the manager checked in with us a couple of times. The outside terrace is beautiful . Someone is is really paying attention to every detail. Well done!

We had let them know through open table reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary. Nobody acknowledged this. When I let the hostess know as well as the manager they did nothing - not even a happy anniversary. We go out to dinner to celebrate. It’s always the restaurants that take the time to at least say “happy anniversary“ that can elevate your night. It was disappointing.

Pretty courtyard restaurant with a nice European touch of a fountain.
Food was excellent! Took advantage of the Wednesday special of half price bottles of wine and we all had the pre-fixe of 3
Courses for $28.50 Excellent value and good size portions. Server was good but the bus boys need a talking to, rarely came around. Our server(sorry forgot his name) was accommodating in putting together a pasta dish with crabmeat for my 7yr old nephew. He loved it and so did we as we sampled his dish☺️
Barbatella you are a nice find on 3rd Ave! A quaint little gem

Recently we ate here on a warm evening outside. Aside from the weather being a bit uncomfortable, this was a nice dining experience. Food was very good, with generous portions. Waiter was a bit abrupt, like he had done this a thousand times before and was tired of it. Overall it is a very nice restaurant, on beautiful 3rd St. South.

I went on a date with my boyfriend and we had an amazing time. I am a vegan and my waiter was very accommodating. I recommend their Verdure pizza for any fellow vegans (minus the mozzarella cheese). My boyfriend also got a pizza with prosciutto, artichoke hearts, olives, mozzarella cheese. We sat outside by the fountain and it was cool enough with the fans in the July Florida heat. Loved the food & the atmosphere!!

The ambiance of this trattoria depends largely on where you are seated; outdoors, at a table near the kitchen or in the modern noisy bar. The food, however, is always the star. Prosciutto is sliced paper thin and melts in your mouth. The Barbatella platter is a generously portioned assortment of meats, cheeses, and vegetables that could easily serve as a full meal. The special salad with grilled peaches, beets and goat cheese was exceptional, and the pasta dishes had flavor to spare. A mixed grill platter passed by that made me wish I had opted for one of the grill options. Next time.

It was restaurant week so you got 3 courses for a very reasonable price and the portion size was smaller than usual but still adequate. We will definitely go back.

We had 4 people in our group and everyone ordered something different from the rest. Our server was very good, but he became very busy with a large group later after we were already eating. I had to wait for some time before I could ask for more water. Also I was bothered by what appeared to be small gnats flying around in my face and occasionally into my food, but we did request outside so it was just the luck of the draw. Aside from that everyone really liked their dinners. After dinner we ordered dessert (tiramisu) that seemed like it had sat out for a while and was melted some and a little difficult to pick up with the fork to eat (kept falling off). It should had been more firm. Probably due to our waiter tied up with a large table I guess. It was a beautiful evening and would definitely go back.

We were very disappointed with our experience at Barbatella’s. The service was slow and they ran out of the restaurant week special we wanted. The meal was not what we expected and the value was definitely not there.

Experiencing Restaurant Week - my dinner was very good. The pork chop wasn’t over cooked therefore juicy with a good crust.
The wine was good, they were stingy with the butter, two small pats for four people, but they did bring more except it had the taste of refrigeration.
All in all we’d go back.

Barbatella never disappoints. Great homemade pasta, coal-fired pizzas, and much more. Two of us had the baked whole branzino - filleted at the table. Delicious. Our waiter had the kitchen make a lovely antipasto platter with ingredients we requested. That was a special request that was granted and made the meal feel like we were home - but better! Beautiful courtyard - it was raining the night we were there, but the courtyard and fountain is lovely.

We made a reservation for a birthday and the staff never made a special dessert or announcement of a birthday.
The pre fix menu was completely different than what was advertised.
The fish and the beef entrees were extremely salty. The appetizers were sub par. I wouldn’t come back.

Had a lovely time in the bar with friends. Jonathan, the bar tender was busy with Happy Hour at the bar and the high top tables. He kept everyone happy with drinks and food and a constant smile. Our good time was enabled by Jonathan's ever present service and smile. The drinks and food were excellent. A great time for all of us!
