This elegant restaurant and bar puts a vibrant twist on the classic Italian trattoria.

Dine inside the stylish restaurant, or head to the beautiful terracotta courtyard and relax under the fairy light canopy. As the sun sets, their moody Veto Bar comes alive, attracting Christchurch diners who are hungry for a great cocktail and bite to eat.

Inspired by traditional Italian recipes, Baretta’s menu focuses on artisan ingredients, simple cooking methods and stunning flavours. Choose from small plates and sharing dishes, like the antipasto platter or the jalapeno cheese fondue, before moving onto their exquisite pizza, pasta, salad and classic mains.

With a superb wine list, warm hospitality and live music (including guest DJs later in the evening), Baretta promises a stylish dining experience in the heart of Christchurch.

Loved the decor, the waiter (from Canada) was fabulous, the food great and ... we were not rushed out the door. Oh and the First Table was all calculated when we went to pay so the evening was seamless.

Had a great time. It was the perfect way to catch up with friends with an early meal and then moving out to the courtyard for drinks. We will be back :)

Group of us went on a sunday evening. Very prompt service and seated within seconds of walking in. The fish of day was gurnard and came with plenty of mussels, prawns, squids. Yummy dish!
My friends tried pork belly and artichoke salad...so good.
The ambience was relax on a Sunday evening.
Definitely be back to try other dishes.

We had a wonderful evening at Barretta. The staff were warm, caring, and helpful. The food was amazing and beautifully presented. The menu isn’t huge, but they do a fantastic job and have all the bases covered. We all left saying it was a great restaurant and we definitely want to come back again.

We enjoyed our evening at Baretta, the food was enjoyable, very fresh and nicely put together, and the service was really friendly and attentive.

We both ordered the fish of the day, which was a piece of crumbed snapper and a piece of crumbed salmon, with a nice sauce. It was accompanied by beetroot chips and a nice beetroot tart with microgreens on top. We added a side of fries to share.
We both enjoyed our meals, the highlights being the lovely fresh snapper and the crispy fries.

Our desserts were creme brulee and chocolate pudding. The creme brulee was really nice, it was the better of the two desserts, with the chocolate pudding needing a bit more sauce, but still tasty.

We felt well looked after all night, and the restaurant setting is beautiful. I highly recommend Baretta for a night out

Beef Wellington was delicious and I can thoroughly recommend the Chocolate Pudding. Very pleasant décor throughout the restaurant with attentive service from the wait staff. Appreciative of the fact that the restaurant and bar are quite separate.

Great food, really helped to have pre-ordered. Made mistake of ordering a couple of cocktails as pre-dinner drinks when we got there. One came with the food the other quite a while after, and the place was mostly empty at that time with heaps of staff around. Apparently a Bloody Mary has a lot of ingredients, maybe they had to grow the tomatoes? Food was fabulous, amazing ! Would go again.

Let me just say Wow Wow and Wow again. Everything was spot on from the warm welcome, to the service and the interaction we had with the waitress. Then we get to the food portion size is huge, Chicken tenders to start out of this world. Main course must have is the Beef wellington, the jus is of top quality and packed with flavour and the wellington itself the best I have had. Thanks very much for a great meal.
