I can't say enough about Barbetta in NYC, just steps from Times Square. It is hidden jewel in the heart of a crazy busy city. We booked the entire restaurant for a buy-out just 6 days out and the restaurant absolutely delivered - 150%. The...More

This place was a special gem to find. The owner was walking inside as we were looking at the menu and invited us inside to see how beautiful it was, with no pressure to stay. They led us into the garden which was beautiful, and...More

Barbetta has a beautiful patio/outdoor dining space. We went for lunch on a weekday. The food is good, but it was mostly lovely for the ambience. It's unusual to be able to sit outside in a setting like that in midtown.

We had dinner here before a broadway show. They had a preset menu which had lots of wonderful options. If you ordered the whole preset it was much cheaper than ala carte. I had the lump crab and beet salad with the crepe brûlée. So...More

A beautiful setting. The restaurant is in a former townhouse from the early 1900s. Beside the main room, there is a beautiful outdoor garden as well. Traditional Northern Italian food, excellently prepared. Not cheap - but worth it.

Once a great place, now a sad remnant of itself. Needs everything, fretting up, new kitchen staff, etc. A real systemic problem, not just an off night. Sad to see.

I have been to Barbetta many times over many years and continue to love it. The food is out of this world good, the wines are fabulous and the portion sizes are perfect (not too big or small, just right!). The service is great and...More

I knew it wasn't going to go well when our drinks, a martini and a Manhattan, arrived cool and not bracingly cold. And stingy Barbetta leaves out the cherry in the Manhattan. Saves them five cents, I guess. With our reservation at 6 p.m., Barbetta...More

Great atmosphere with a really good theater menu. Had a great meal with exceptional service. The building and restuarant were very elegant.

It is a very nice restaurant so I wouldn't go too casual-no jeans/t shirts. It's always nice to show respect for yourselves and the venue by looking good.
