Excellent service from the staff at Baretta last night. The staff were very attentive at all times. We had a 4 year old with us who was very well looked after. Lovely atmosphere and surroundings. Keep up the good work guys - we shall definitely be back! Cheers Adrienne

The food was well portioned and well cooked. However, the waitress who was serving us was not attentive. The other tables were getting pretty much kind attention but the lady who waited on our table was not as quite interested in serving, in a timely basis by checking what the person has taken.
In total, I would like to go back for the food but it would be great to have better service.

Our dinner at Baretta was just lovely. There was a nice ambience even though it was a quiet Wed night. Our waitress was delightful and the food simple but delicious.

The atmosphere was nice and cozy, with lovely interior architecture. We tried the 5-course degustation menu which was really delicious. It's a nice tasting menu if you want to try a few dishes in one seating. The fish of the day was good too, though it was spicier than expected and had more calamari and prawns than fish. Regardless it was very nice.

The food was lovely, a particular highlight for me was the pulled pork croquettes and the cardamom creme brulee. It was a nice relaxing dinner and the staff were friendly.

Great experience at Baretta! Delicious starters which are good for sharing, loved the Fried Ravioli and Arancini, both delicious! Pizza's were great too, big size and staff were friendly and allowed you to take home any leftovers. Even had room for dessert which was great! Would recommend the cheesecake! Will definitely be coming back!

This visit was smooth and totally enjoyable from start to finish.
Our waiter (Courtney) was efficient, friendly and helpful, appropriately attentive and professional in every way.

The food was superb, I had Snapper with a very generous plate of deliciously cooked seasonal vegetables my friend had chicken pizza which was apparently also delicious.

The cocktails were superb also.

All in all a very satisfying preliminary to a theatre evening. I will be going back.

The food was delicious and the service efficient and friendly. The main menu seems somewhat limited but with the "daily specials" this provides more variety and we were happy.

Baretta is in an old bank building that has been modernised and has interesting features to look at while you wait for the food to arrive.
The service was excellent and the food high quality and tasted really great too.
The only little niggle was we ordered pasta as an entree but it came with the mains but that was minor in the scheme of things. Thanks Baretta we will be back.
