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.
Pasta was over cooked but pizza was amazing.
Mother’s Day dinner was incredible. One of our favorite restaurants
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.
Went for Mother’s Day and had a blast! The service was great and food was perfect. If you go, definitely get the creme brûlée for dessert. It’s amazing!
Food came out just minutes after we ordered. They rushed us and did nothing for my birthday.
We had thantipasto plate for four and it was terrific, as well as the main dish that we ordered, branzino. Very good. Dessert was yummy
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.
Love this restaurant - love the ambience as well as the food.
Host & server were rude. Food was good. Would not return or recommend.
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.
Excellent food, wine, and ambiance. We sat right by the fountain. Perfect night!
The best Italian Restaurant I have ever been to in the USA!
We are two for two at Barbatella. The last time we were there we thought this was fantastic and it was confirmed on this trip. Can’t go wrong with any item on the menu.
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.
Barbatella’s has both great food and service!
We enjoy eating there because they have a pretty
diverse menu form pizza to full dishes.
We enjoyed dinner there Saturday night and both
the food and the service were great.
Nice dinner on their terrace. Great server, all enjoyed their meal. Nice night.
We are huge fans of this restaurant. We come to Naples twice a year for vacation and this is our “go to”. We promise ourselves we are going to try a new restaurant each time, but end up returning to the jewel of Naples. Highly recommend.
Excellent craft cocktails and wine selection. Nice menu with quality food. Beautiful patio. Friendly, attentive service.
Excellent food, amazing ambiance and overall great experience.
Terrible seating between the gelato stand and mozzarella bar in what seemed like a separate building. Waiter was polite but food was uneven. Two diners had the same dish, but only one had sufficient bolognese sauce. Multiple diner but first big miss here.
Wonderful food and wines.... great service
Wonderful outdoor setting. Just wish the food was better - pasta's just not great. Good bar, nice staff. We will continue to go as we love ambiance.
Nice location and setting. Good staff but the food wasn’t as good as we were hoping for.
Always have a great time, never disappointed! Service and environment is amazing!
Had a wonderful dinner and will definitely be coming back! Our food was hot and served quickly - also extremely tasty! We were able to sit outside with a stroller nearby for my baby and it wasn’t a problem. Loved the piano player and the ambiance. Perfect evening!
Though we love the food, and courteous service, it was quite noisy this Sat. The four of us all loved our meal . The salad and our special -made lasagna was so yummy. The entertainment was very pleasant, and we did all enjoy ourselves
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!
Been here several times and food is consistently good every time. Staff is friendly, knowledgeable and quick. Highly recommend this restaurant
Food was not up to par. All the fish was very fishy calamari and clams. Will not be returning.
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!!
Dinner was veal parm n very lightly breaded n sauce tastey. Not traditional sauce but good. More like fresh crushed tomatoes n cheese. Fresh. Papadella past n may sauce...again tastey.
Server could have a bit more attentive but he was nice.
As always a great meal with great service. The outside seating is the best on 3rd.
Horrible music w/ poor sound. Very noisy not a good evening for the $ spent. Pasta dishes were very bland; no taste. Disappointing. We will not go back.
Cutest waitress and great live music. We really enjoyed our night.
