We ordered the Baretto lasagna and it was AMAZING! It is a must dish at this restaurant. The service was great! Our waiter was very attentive and helped us quite a bit with our choices. Since we had a discount of 20% because of a newspaper card (El País), the price was very reasonable. Without any discount, it can be... More

I went on my last night hoping to have great Italian food. I ate Mediterranean bruschetta, seafood pasta (yeah, always risky), drank a glass of white wine and had some water. I paid over 30€ (almost 34 US$), which to me is a lot but I'm willing to pay for excellence. This was far from it. The pasta just didn't... More

We used to go to Il Baretto for several years. Nice environment, very good pasta, friendly service. It happened to be that new owners have changed this into a "just another restaurant for tourists" wihtout the italian charm that they used to have. Food is just fine. Service is dedicated but with the lack of professionalism typical of having newer... More

Went here for dinner as it was close to our hotel. The food was average, I ordered spaghetti bolognese, my partner the chicken. Service was fine and there's a nice garden area to sit out if it's warm enough. Generally I'd say the evening was average and not especially memorable other than for the 95 pesos per person cubiertos that... More

We had an amazing dinner at Il Baretto last Monday; excellent italian food and even better service. The atmosphere very warm and friendly, and everything was perfect! The price was quite high, but not much difference with most fine restaurants in Punta del Este, so we were very glad to have choosen this place. I highly reccomend this place, but... More

I can't say enough good things about Il Baretto. We were greeted warmly and seated promptly. The gnocchi was fluffy pillows of deliciousness with a fresh tomato based sauce. The ravioli stuffed with lamb was great. Molten chocolate cake was sublime ( just one with 2 spoons). Special praise goes to our server who was an absolute delight.

We were in Punta del Este for a few days and went to Il Baretto for dinner one night and we had an amazing meal; it was so good that we went back again before we left Punta del Este.
