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.

excellent food as usual and professional if not slightly superficial service. only grievance: serving fish with a steak knife is a little to nonchalant...

Excellent food. Service was moderate. Our waiter seemed to be focused on a particular group that was known to the owners and not on us. We had to request grated cheese, bread and red peppers for our meals after they arrived and it appeared that they were not going to be offered to us. We usually love this restaurant but tonight it was subpar.

I live Barbatella and have been going for years. On Saturday, we had the worst service! Completely forgot my husbands salad and when asked about it, he said our food is here but will get it. Real snotty and no time for us. I asked for a skinny margarita, so simply made and it was terrible. Not a good experience but the food was fab!

It was a packed night but we got excellent service. The only change I would suggest is to have more eggplant and less sausage on the Barbatella pizza. Love the piano music.

Suggestion
Offer the early bird to folks if they arrive at 5:30 or earlier they probably won’t do it but it should be an option without one of your guests asking you have to lovely of an establishment not to do this .

Have eaten here a couple of times over the past few months and have very much enjoyed our meals! The Caesar Salad is anything but basic, so flavorful and even includes artichokes! The outdoor seating is my favorite setting. The servers have always been helpful with suggestions or recommendations, which I always appreciate. Their gelato is also something not to be skipped! This is definitely my favorite Naples restaurant!

Bartender and waiter very pushy about ordering very expensive items. We wanted “Sunset “ menu and from that point on curt and dismissive. After one cup coffee our table immediately cleared and we felt pushed out.

We have always LOVED Barbatella for atmosphere, food and service. This particular night we had a waiter that was not happy to be there! His actual service was good, but he was either sick, high or really upset about something that did not concern us. If he was sick he should not be serving us food. It made it uncomfortable for us.

Food was very good across the board. Service was casual and amateurish---despite large numbers of staff walking around, no one seemed able to focus on guests. Noise level was very high, despite the restaurant being nearly empty.

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.
