About Barbatella

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.

I have always enjoyed this place. The only issue we have that evening is that we told the waiter we preferred that the heater not be turned on that was next to us. Somehow, or someone, did light the gas flame heater, which literally melted our guests that were close to it. My Lasagna was great.

The food was average - I had pasta that was a little too al dente - however the owner/manager was rather rude - restaurant was not crowded - we were dining al fresco and it was chilly - he moved heat lamp away from my fiancé and me - only payed attention to table next to us - and never once asked us how our experience was - too many stellar restaurants in Naples to return

Unhappily, our recent dinner experience was not one of our best at Barbatella. The special local restaurant week menu was best forgotten. The appetizers: Beets with Burrata, and the eggplant parmigiana were both tasty. The pork entrée was tough, the branzino overcooked, neither would have encouraged first time diners to make a return visit. Luckily, we always enjoy our lunches in Barbatella's lovely patio, and will continue to focus on those.

Love Barbatella! The food is so fresh and the waiter was very knowledgeable about the ingredients in all of the dishes. We had the chef make a meat and cheese plate as an appetizer before sharing a salad. The Sea scallops were delicious and the pasta is homemade!

Food was excellent, as usual. We tried the Restaurant Week menu-very good, except the Polenta was overly salty. Our waiter, Angelo, was great and even brought us an extra primi course to try.

We have been coming here for several years with friends and have never been disappointed. Great service and engaging staff. Food is as authentic as you can find in Italy. The pizza for an appetizer is the closest to what we have had in the old country.

We have been going to Naples for years, and even have a home there, but had never been to Barbatella for some reason. We always walk by and comment how pretty it looks. It is located on 12th Avenue (near 3rd Street) surrounded by lovely shops and other restaurants. The 12th and 3rd area is actually prettier and more charming than the popular 5th Avenue part of Naples. We finally made a reservation for dinner. The food was delicious, and the service was fantastic. Naples is full of restaurants--many are just average. Barbatella, on the other hand, is anything but average. It is a delightful and wonderful choice--Its lovely ambiance, high quality food and wonderful service make it a real treat.

We have been to this restaurant many times over the past years and this was the best experience we have had. Food was outstanding. The roast chicken was perfect. The meat platter for two was excellent and was big enough for four. The service was spot on and the piano player added to the night. Outdoor dining here is always preferred. Great vibe. Highly recommend it.

We've dined at Barbatella many times and have enjoyed the food , setting, and ambience. However, on our visit Thursday evening we sat at an outdoor table where there was an "entertainer" who sang popular songs over VERY LOUD synthesized music. He does not have a great voice, and in order to be heard over that VERY LOUD "music" he must therefore sing , you guessed it - loudly. And he never takes a break.
Add to this a table of 10 with a French bulldog who is cute, but doesn't have the table manners to be at a restaurant. The dog didn't care for the perfomer either and barked continually throughout.
This atmosphere was not conducive to an enjoyable meal.
We have nothing against dogs (or good music), and think it's great that Barbatella allows our canine friends at their outdoor tables as is done in Europe. However, pets should need to behave to be welcome... and the entertainment should be in keeping with a European styled dining experience.

The food was great and a fun atmosphere. The decor is awesome. My only complaint is the noise level. For a party of 4 it would be perfect, but for 6 people it was tough to hear (and we are all in our 30's so no one is hard of hearing, it was just loud).
