Description: Il Baretto Wine Bar and Restaurant in London's very happening Marylebone Village is another winner from the stable of restaurateur Arjun Waney, who brought you the stellar Roka, Zuma and La Petite Maison. If you're looking for a super Italian cuisine and would like to avoid both chain restaurants and designer price tags, Il Baretto in Blandford Street is an excellent choice. Located between Marylebone High Street and Baker Street, Il Baretto has a smart wine bar located on the ground floor and a cavernous basement dining room that is a stylish restaurant for group parties and celebrations. Popular with a local crowd, as well as with tourists and shoppers from Bond Street, this restaurant serves up authentic Italian recipes and we love the spaghetti con astice with lobster, sweet chilli and garlic sauce, and the risotto ai carciofi, a creamy artichoke risotto. Pizzas and dishes from the robata grill are winners too.

“Nice food, small portions, high price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014 via mobile

Had a dinner with friend, nice setting a little bit too crowded and noisy.
The dishes were good although a little small, together with the over priced menu the result is slightly disappointing...

“Delicious dining at its finest Italian best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014 via mobile

On a recent dining experience with friends, I found both the food and service at Il Baretto outstanding. The attention to detail was truly exceptional with Italian waiters and waitresses showing they had studied the menu in detail as well as tasting the food putting them in a great position to recommend signature dishes like: sea bass baked in rock salt, mouth wateringly delicious wafer thin pizzas (the best I have tasted) and the lobster and langoustine linguine simply exquisite! When it comes to dining I prefer exceptional food and service in London Il Baretto most definitely lives upto that expectation. I have insisted my friends try this little treasure of a restaurant.

Stumbled across this little gem when staying in central London and can highly recommend it - excellent food, service and ambience - not cheap but you get what you pay for.

“Birthday drinks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

Went to Il Baretto on the recommendation of the staff at the hotel No Ten Manchester street and so glad we did. Had amazing cocktails and the staff were all lovely and looked after us. I was even surprised with free birthday cake which was delicious. Didn't actually stay for a meal but we will definitely go back and try it! Thanks everyone for a wonderful and memorable evening.
