Description: Baretta Bar & Restaurant is a little piece of Italy in Christchurch. From the moment you walk through the door you will feel like you have stepped back to another time and place. From the exquisite interior and moody appearance, to the inviting terracotta paved courtyard - Baretta is our interpretation of a classic Italian trattoria with a Kiwi influence.

“Terrible service!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Worst service I've experienced in this city for a long time. Avoid! Staff seated us and then ignored us completely. And they weren't actually that busy. After 20 minutes of this lack of service we got up and walked out. Appalling.

“Fantastic lunch and really enjoyable dining experience.”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

What a great place. Beautifully decorated, fantastic staff, and delicious food. The meals are very reasonably priced and are delicious. I had a fantastic salmon salad and would highly recommend this to other diners.

“Excellent service and delicious meals”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

We had lunch at Baretta today using a grabone voucher. The atmosphere is pleasant and welcoming. The food was perfectly prepared and promptly served. I had the fish of the day which was salmon and it was very tasty. All 3 of us were very pleased with our meals and we will be back. The wine and food were very reasonably priced.

“Excellent Venue”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Extensive menu good food comprehensive wine list excellent service. Menu well priced. Tasteful decor inside and pleasant outside with heating outside. Required to have a tab from the start but with a side exit apparently some customers must occasionally slip out without paying? Could not fault this place. Something for everyone here. Entertainment very good. Ability to move away to a quieter corner for conversation if required. Very good overall.

“Ticks all the Boxes!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Outstanding place and one of my favourites in Christchurch right now. The service is always without fault, knowledgable and friendly. The food at both the bar and restaurant has always been spot on, of note is the knowledgable wait staff there, what a nice change to have a restaurant in Christchurch where the staff can discuss both the food on the menu and accompanying wines in depth. As a bar it works well, usually good music with a mix of people and a great vibe. Well done and keep up the good work!!
