Reviews for Barbetta Restaurant


It's expensive, fogey-ish, and as formal as an audience with the pope. But it's also a vanishing breed of old, elegant, and refined Italian restaurants from before the age of babbo.

Private party – We recently gave a party in Barbetta's private rooms. The reception and dinner were perfectly organized, the food was delicious and the service friendly and flawless. We visited other places but the deciding factor in selecting Barbetta was the incredible ambiance of its private rooms. These are the original rooms of Barbetta's townhouses dating from 1874 and it's amazing that they preserve all of their original wood paneling, fireplaces and period furnishings (we discovered that the owner is an art historian). It's a truly patrician setting - not like entertaining in a public place, but in the grand home we all wished we had. Very highly recommended!

Dessert – If you are a desert lover like me, head to Barbetta. I had heard about their dessert waggons featuring 16 different desserts nightly ! late one night together with other foodies we dropped in just for desserts. There cannot be sweeter way to end an evening.

Exquisite Dining Experience – Barbetta has to be the most beautiful restaurant in New York! It's like

being in a European palazzo. The elegant yet tasty food matches the

surroundings, as does the stylish service. A must visit.

Most Elegant New York city Restaurant! – One of the most romantic exeperiences of my life. My boyfriend took me here on my one year aniversary and he could not pick a better restaurant. Food was amazing, decor was absolutely stunning, and service was outstanding. I go out to eat quite a lot and this is one of the best Italian restaurants in the city period! Thanks Barbetta for a night to remember.

The stately doyen of Manhattan Italian restaurants. – The Scene
Barbetta is a graceful and commodious dining space, with twinkling chandeliers, pale rose walls, a soaring ceiling and generously spaced tables. A magnificent outdoor dining garden is open in clement weather. Although it may seem like a formal Old World place, it has a young attitude: You can get decked out and go there for a romantic special occasion, or just drop in casually attired for a bowl of pasta.

The Food
The restaurant specializes in the cooking of Italy's Piedmont region, with special historic dishes going back to the restaurant's early 20th-century opening. Nice light starters include the grilled sweet peppers with anchovy sauce and stuffed zucchini. Thick, restorative minestrone is another good bet. A house favorite, pollo al babj, is a pounded, peppered and deliciously seared split chicken. Service at Barbetta is vigilant and caring, but if you need to catch a show, make it known when you sit down.
