A nice Italian restaurant serving good standard dishes together with pizzas. I had the bruschetta but as usual disappointed by the local basil. However, the ravioli verde was fabulous as was the lemon sorbet. A good value bottle of local white wine and the bill for a three course meal, albeit vegetarian, was very reasonable. Recommend it.

Had a very good meal here. The steak I ordered was cooked to perfection despite the non - English speaking waitress struggling to ask how I wanted it done. The prices were reasonable for Punta del Este, all I would say in criticism is that it's a bit naughty charging for the bread which is brought out as an appetiser... More

This restaurant never in 15 years failed me. Great pizza and pasta. Good prices and nice service. Ideal as a family option or a relaxed diner with friends.

If you are looking for a restaurant in your vacations at Punta del Este, this restaurant offers a great menu. I enjoyed a very well done artichoke lasagna, which was great. They also offers a good variety of wines. If you. Wish to try a local one, go for a tannat reserve of bodega Garzon. The price is Moderate to... More

This seems to be a restaurant where you go to be seen rather than to eat. The service was sloppy, the tuna impossible to eat and the restaurant extremely noisy. Don't go there.

Excellent menu, delicious well-prepared food, excellent service, wonderful live music. I only have good things to say about this restaurant, as it has maintained its excellent quality over the years. It's definitely the best place to eat within Punta's peninsula.

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
