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 are 'regulars' at Barbatella but this is the first time we've all ordered pizza, and I was disappointed. The crust was completely soggy in the center-- yuck. We had high hopes, but will not be ordering pizza from there again.

Sat outside. The was a wine tasting club in the bar area. Very loud. We had two of the dinner specials. Seemed a little pricey for what we got. Pasta soup was very good. Lasagna just ok. We’d go back but try the pizza.

We met good friends and sat at booth. We could hear each other talk (loved that!) easily which can be a challenge in some restaurants. The waiter was terrific and we all enjoyed our meals. It's a great casual spot with good food and drinks.

They don’t advise you that the birds are famous for crapping on you when you sit by the tree in the courtyard. Got crapped on two times and promptly moved. Food was a 2 out of 5.

I would recommend this for an afternoon drink and appetizer. Dinner entrees were so so (except for the pork which was very good). Service was good until we answered the server's question as to the food (bland, needed more flavor and spices). He wasn't too chatty after that exchange but overall the service was good. Lovely outdoor setting but that is not guaranteed for busy dinner hours even with reservations. It's also fairly loud, inside and outside.

It was an off night at Barbatella. We have dined there many times and never had a bad experience. So I will chalk this one up to them just having a off night. We were greeted and sat right down, that was the best part of the night the rest was all down hill.

We are not looking to blame any of the wait staff. They were working hard. but it took a very long time to even get a glass of water. It took an even longer time to give our drink order and appetizer. The meat platter for 2 for $ 29. We received the meat platter before our drinks and when the drinks came they were half on the tray and a few drops on my legs. Just before the drinks came we moved the oil and vinegar bottles, which were covered in oil, off the table and placed them along side the building. The manager came over and was more concerned about us moving the bottles when he should have helped the server hand us our drinks. He was there and he could have helped.

The Drinks were not up to the Barbatella standards which we are use to. We are full time year round residents who dine out quite often. Other tables who sat down after us were being poured water brought bread and their drinks before us. We figured it just started off bad and it would get better, but after some time we discussed it and said it wasn't worth the chance to find out. And we looked around for while trying to enjoy our cocktails and meat platter we determined it was not going to be the place to spend $300-400 and feel like it was worth it or be happy with the experience. So we left and had a wonderful meal at the Watermark Grill where Ashley took splendid care of us and the food was delicious!

Barbatella usually is a wonderful time, it just wasn't on Saturday. But now we have to put them in time out and as there are oh so many wonderful restaurants in Naples we will be dining else where for some time.

Barbatella is my go to restaurant for almost any occasion, from enjoying a great pizza and beer to a gourmet Italian meal. The servers are all European, many from Italy and provide exceptional service. Also if you're by yourself the bar is a very comfortable alternative with good TV viewing.

I made this reservation online via OpenTable about 2 weeks prior. I requested a table outside (weather permitting), which we did receive & it was perfect. I will also note, we were seated immediately . The service was great as was the entertainment. Two had flatbread pizzas that were just okay this time, but it could have been the type they tried. I've had them before & loved them! Two others had past which was delicious. Barbatellas is on of our favorites when visiting Naples!

We had an 8:30 reservation, with grandkids and Barbatella called, asking us to call back and confirm, which we did. Sadly, when we checked in early and returned at 8:30, no table was ready for us. In fact, a table sufficient for 7 was being broken up into two 4-tops. The hostess said they had prior reservations they had to accommodate. So, our family waited. After 15 minutes, in fact, the two tables were reassembled into a 7-top, but we weren't seated for another 10 minutes. Then, we waited and waited for service. Finally, my husband asked for a waiter at after 45 minutes, we were able to order dinner. By this time, our youngest grandchild was overtired and curled up on the chair to fall asleep. If they could not accommodate our party, I wish they hadn't confirmed the reservation. We will not return with a party over 4, in spite of visiting this restaurant many times over the past two years. :-(

The server was friendly and nice just not attentive and a bit presumptuous. My wife ordered a sparkling water and I a glass of wine. As the server is walking away she says a bottle? My reply was no my wife is pregnant. Our drinks arrive with no sparkling water and two glasses of wine. I didn’t make a fuss as I was going to have a second with my meal. We ordered the trio of mozzarella. It was good but the plate was quickly dropped off without any explanation of what the three different mozzarella’s were. We liked the middle one best, but couldn’t order it separately in the future as we do not know which it was. My entree was excellent with the pasta being cooked al dente. My wife’s was just okay she picked at it but didn’t really eat it. Her reasons was there was a ton of crushed red pepper in it. Would have been fine but was not listed on the menu. The dessert was top notch.

Once or twice a month they put on a "pop-up" Opera show, to augment the "authentic Italian" atmosphere without being too campy - and it works.

This was my second visit.
Sadly, tonight’s experience was very mediocre.
The food was OK, but the service was sub par.
It seemed like the waiter was in his first week on the job. 2 of us ordered pasta and the other ordered pizza.
The runner tossed our plates on the table and disappeared. We waited 10 minutes before our waiter returned and we could ask for grated cheese on the pasta.
We finished dinner and ordered 3 coffees. The coffee was Luke warm. None of the wait staff ever asked us how our meal tasted or if everything was OK.
I have 2 more business dinners scheduled for Barbatellas in the next week. I am seriously considering changing to a restaurant that will deliver an experience that justifies paying $24 for a plate of pasta!!
