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.

a waiter kept eavesdropping on our table conversation and looking at us. my sons expensive medium rare steak was out of stock so the restaurant just changed it out for another one without. word and it was RARE. two orders of orrechiate with saus and brocc rabe were tasteless.

Was recommended to this restaurant by a friend. We sat outside, which was lovely. The service was fine and food came out 15 minutes after order was placed. We all thought the food was just average tasting. My husband had swordfish with mashed potatoes. There was no flavor to his food. I had ravioli with mushrooms. It was nothing exceptional for an Italian restaurant. Probably will not go back for dinner. May try the lunch menu something....

Great new-ish restaurant in the historic district of Naples. Tucked in a corner with a great menu and wine list. portion sizes are on the smaller side, especially the appetizers. We only got 2 toast points with the muscles (?) and 1 with the mozzarella. The muscles were huge!!

One of the best meals I have had since moving to Naples. The filet was outstanding with a delicious chargrill with herbs and perfectly cooked. Often the side dishes are not thought out and not prepared well.
The mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus were perfectly cooked and seasoned. The grilled baby artichokes appetizer was delicious! Service was spot on. Very attentive but not intrusive.

Chose Babatella for the melt in your mouth lasagna that I remembered. Not so this time. It was too much like a casserole. Also had the pear/cauliflower salad. Where was the pear? Did very much enjoy the chocolate cake.

We have eaten at Barbatella many times. I would always have said it was a very good place to eat and enjoy yourself. However, this was an incredibly bad experience. Our waiter had to be in the top 5 worst waiters ever. He was obnoxious and haphazard. There were 5 of us. Two orders were good. Two orders were bland. One order was a disaster. A filet was sent back 3 times because it was not prepared properly. Once, maybe but 3 times is a very poor effort. Ultimately we skipped that order, everyone was done eating by the time it would have returned. The bottle of wine the waiter insisted we should try also happened to be the last bottle in the restaurant. It wasn't that good so no great loss, but waiters recommend their last bottle without a warning. In all we will try Barbatella again but with quite a bit more caution.

Barbatella was an unfortunate miss for us, all to be blamed on the food. The reason I gave it two stars was for the ambiance of the outdoor patio and exceptional service we got from our wait staff. The food, however, was just not up to par with the experience of the restaurant. We all ordered a pasta dish and I would compare it to say Carrabba's or Olive Garden, but about $5 - $10 more expensive per plate. It was edible, but we decided there was no reason to take the leftovers. We also ordered dessert, particularly the Death by Chocolate cake seemed not good, maybe frozen and thawed. It was dry and had an odd texture. A real shame because the restaurant, location, and staff were excellent.
