Delicious seared Grouper. Wonderful night. Snow from the light posts. Delightful.
Pasta dishes had no flavor. Was told the salad was not romaine lettuce but it looked just like romaine. Very disappointed with everything except the service.
Always a great meal at Barabatella. Pastas are delicious and we tried the cauliflower salad. Very different but I loved it!
We had an awesome dinner. The server was attentive and pleasant. Didn’t rush us. I love the piano player. Nice addition to the restaurant. The whole ambience. It even snowed. How fun was that and a guest of mine from Cuba thoroughly enjoyed that.
Not kid friendly as there is a kids menu and entrees for over $30 is not feasible. The calamari appetizer foe the price was just ok. Nice atmosphere outside with heaters.
Lively spot with good food for the price. Lots of heaters for winter outdoor dining.
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.
Great experience as always!
I had the salmon which melted in my mouth. The rest of our party had various pizzas. Everyone enjoyed the whole evening.
The eggplant in the pizza was not done and the pizza crust was not crisp
Delightful lunch in comfortable surroundings. The good was great as was the service.
Highly recommend for lunch or dinner.
The food was cold and tasted like something we could have had at an Olive Garden for much less. Server was annoying!
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.
Best Ceasar Salad I've had in a very long time, with artichokes and anchovies, yum!
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.
Our waiter “Silver” was fun and very informative. I will request him on my next visit! Great experience all around!
Very nice Regina Margherita Pizzette
Got the butcher platter for 2; a variety of meats and sides. Delicious and enough to feed four .
Overcooked fish, at a high price and with a small portion.
We were seated outside which is nonsmoking. YES. We enjoyed our evening as the service was attentive and friendly. I had the mushroom ravioli with short ribs. It was a lot of food, heavy and could have been presented better. The taste was good but not excellent. My salad was very good. My husband had Bolognese and he agreed that the dish was heavy with a lot of meat.
If we return I would probably try fish for a lighter entree.
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.
This was our visited to Barbatella. Totally enjoyed our meal, and had an excellent service with our server Mihai. Will definitely return
Patio dining was very nice. Service was good. Four out of six people liked their meals. Lasagna was very dry. Steak was average.
Three of the four meals were outstanding . The bolognese sauce was terrible. Although we did not complain, we took it and threw it in the trash upon leaving.
I recommended this restaurant to my friends and they loved it . The service was wonderful food as was the service . We will be back
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 .
Loved it. Emil was fabulous
We sat outside and really enjoyed people watching along 3rd street. Our server was great and even took our kids to the attached gelateria. Food was outstanding and everything we ate, we would order again.
Beautiful location, very nice outdoor area to enjoy a glass of wine.
Excellent food and service. Always a favorite! Thank
We had the bolognese and Osso Buco entrees, they were excellent. Also, recommend their grilled octopus with polenta. No disappointments here...was a lovely dinner experience.
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.
Always look forward to going to Barbatella It is an authentic Italian Restaurant with fantastic service and appeal
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.
