At Il Baretto, I want you to enter a place where the barista says “hello” and the friends inside invite you to come in and share in this great feeling of cameratismo or companionship that all Italians know. Il Baretto will open in the morning; ready to help you start the day with delicious espresso, cappuccino, American coffee and bakery fresh croissants and pastries. For lunch, we will serve you the best panini made with fresh ingredients, rich organic salads and healthy soups. Eat inside, outside in nice weather, or have lunch delivered to your office.

The first time was great. This time was even better! The food is fantastic. Pasta, salads, fillet, appetizers and deserts have all been well-presented and delicious. The service simultaneously makes you feel like you are in a small Italian restaurant and you are either family or a close friend/favorite, regular patron. Add in that value for money is excellent - anywhere but even more so in Manhattan - and you have a great dining experience. Enjoy!

Once I did, I was so regretful why I did not try it earlier. This is just a great place. Very cozy, quiet, warm with delicious meals with great prices. Don't you ever miss it!!!

We had the place to pretty much to ourselves from about 2:00 - 4:30 and it was lovely. The food was wonderful, our server was very knowledgable and prompt. Prices are incredible reasonable for NYC! We will be back.

Everything was great, from the wine, to the service to the food. Place is small so on a busy night you probably have to wait a bit. Would recommend to friends

We enjoyed the decor and although the tables were close together, we didn't feel overly crowded. The servers were lovely - attentive without being smothering and friendly without being insincere. My favorite dishes were the polenta with gorgonzola appetizer and the filet mignon with pancetta. We devoured two helpings of the complimentary bread with olive oil and vinegar - fresh and delicious. It was a fabulous value for authentic Italian in the city.

I loved the food and ambience. You feel like you’re in a small restaurant in tuscany. It’s cozy, has a great service and the food is delicious. They also offer a lot of healthy options. Inhighly recommend and will be back!

Our first time, and we were very pleased! Needless to say, it won't be our last. We especially enjoyed and are very much thankful for our server Ele's company and service, which made our experience even more positive ;) Ciao!

Incredibly delicious Italian home cooked food. Kindest sweetest waitress ever ! I felt as if I were sitting in a family dining room ! Ensemble Studio Theatre just 2 short blocks away. Great for pre-theatre. Lobster sliders with butter and mayo super delish. Terrific choice of salads. Authentic Italian espresso served cold or hot. Absolutely my new fav. place on the west side !

Definitely recommend and will return.

Communal table looked like it would be fun as a single diner or even in a small group. Food was excellent – especially recommend the Strachetti (sauteed beef cubes with arugula and goat cheese)! Definitely will be back.

Hardly any pasta on the menu. Amazing salads, nice soups. (This from my vegetarian perspective). A nice wine list with choices you don't often see elsewhere. And to top it off a staff of real Italians - and nice ones at that.

Good food, reasonable prices, excellent service, especially when going to a show. This place reminded me of the many wonderful teenie places at which we ate in Italy. Eating here made our cold, rushed (impossible to get a cab or Uber that night) evening cozy & memorable! FYI, you can almost miss it from the outside. Cant wait to go back!

Il Baretto fit the bill for two old friends who hadn't seen in each other in three years and a 10-year old. When we walked in at 6:00--needing to get to our show by 8:00--we along with one other table were the only people seated in the restaurant. It was quiet and comfortable/cozy. My Floridian friends were starved from a day of sightseeing and some bread arrived promptly. My friend was very picky asking the waitress about this thing and that thing and, oh, could her daughter have this, which is not actually on your menu, but... The waitress was gracious and was sure to accommodate them. Even going so far as to split an entree between mother and daughter at the last minute. I had a Syrah with my salad (arugula, artichoke hearts and goat cheese) and the spinach and ravioli pasta with arugula pesto -- gorgeous! I don't know if I'll ever go back to basil pesto! My friends had pasta alfredo which was also absolutely delicious. We were in and out in plenty of time. We got a cab immediately outside the restaurant -- it is in a great location for hailing a cab, by the way. My friend said they returned the following night because it provided the calm and soothing/cozy atmosphere that she liked after a busy day. I'll be back.

Both food and wine were excellent, even a simple panino with cheese and truffle cream, toasted, was very good.Space is a little tight , adds to the ambiance, though.

Some dishes better than others -- all OK but some a bit underseasoned. Love the half-size portions! Prices very reasonable. Staff very pleasant. Will continue to go there.
