Il Baretto Wine Bar and Restaurant
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 Maccheroni with black truffle. Pizzas and dishes from the robata grill are winners too.
FREE ICE CREAM for all kiddies, the good & the naughty little ones!

The food, service, atmosphere was great.
The seats are quite close to each other so It could be quite loud depending on who you are seated next to
Lovely venue and atmosphere with a wide selection catering for all sorts of taste and occasion. Big portions.
Great service and very welcoming. Food very good. We had a great time.
They forgot to put our order through. So we waited an hour before our food was out. They gave us dessert for free to make up for the poor service which was a nice gesture. They kind of made it up for us with that touch
Very good service and the food is tasty 👌🏼
Il Baretto is a warm, hip and friendly Italian restaurant, serving sensation food with impeccable service.
Try their Macaroni w black truffle, it's ridiculously good! They always feature white truffle in season too.
The noise level is low, so it's a great place for a romantic dinner and the managers and staff are warm and quite cool as well.
My fave in London.
Fantastic overall experience and would definitely go back as well as recommend it to my friends. The food was excellent and enjoyed each dish. The food and the restaurant is very authentic Italian and the manager spoke to us in Italian quite frequently which was a nice touch even though my Italian is quite limited. :-) Looking forward to going back soon!
Delightful venue, staff very attentive and food very good. A good idea to book as clearly this gets busy in the evening however the lunch period was easier to get a table. Price was reasonable, wine more expensive than I would have expected
So disappointing. We were expecting a lovely, romantic experience but we were sat in between terribly loud customers and the acoustics are terrible. We were shouting across the table at one another to communicate. Dinner was just okay, at best, and was very expensive for what we had. The wine we chose was the most enjoyable part of the evening. Service was just adequate. Definitely won’t go back or recommend.
Met a friend for lunch in the week, sat upstairs, very attentive service, good choice of food and a set menu if preferred. Very enjoyable and would definitely go back again,
The service was inattentive. We had to ask for more wine from your bottle . We wanted salad a main course for lunch and where not told what we had ordered was a side . They did bring another portion but that was not the point but I have also now another criteria by which I judge Resturants and that is how they manage deliveroo people and this restaurant was totally unacceptable!!! Will never go there again
Perfect Place and you get served the real Italien Food. Always again!
Noisy table right next to the kitchen.
Always good, lunch time offer is great value, food and service excellent.
didn't like the food service was not to write home about ,
It’s a nice experience. Good service, nice food.
The first impression from the street view was disappointing, having spotted the two large TV screens with sport.
The staff were friendly, and did give us a table downstairs. The food sounded delicious from the menu but the reality was that it was very poor when comparing it to the cost. Party member had minestrone soup, which he said tasted like boiled water with a few bits of vegetable floating around. The aubergine starter was nice, as was one of the salads, as a starter.
The main courses where hugely disappointing: the dover sole went cold by the time it was filleted and the side orders arrived. The shredded sirloin was grizzle and fat, and the filet of beef was tough and overcooked. One can only assume that the usual chef wasn't in that evening, as our experience did not match any of the reviews that we had read.
They were however, very sweet in giving my friend a surprise Birthday platter with a candle, chocolate piping and a 3-4 little cookies on on the plate.
The wine we chose was smooth and they did have an extensive wine list.
I researched restaurants in the area for many hours, and was left feeling bad that the Birthday treat for my friend was not a treat at all. The expense and disappointment were great; the experience was not one I wish to repeat.
Not please that at all
FABULOUS!! We had a wonderful experience while on holiday in London. Quite a last minute booking, but we were treated like well known regulars. Highly recommend!
Best Italian in town
You arrive as stranger but you leave as new member of family!
We had great dinner.
Generally, I love the food at Il Baretto however last night I had a very disappointing experience.
I booked the first week of January to spend Valentines evening there as it is one of my favourite restaurants in London. Upon arrival we were sat upstairs by the huge television which was showing the football.
I asked if I could sit downstairs but were told there were no available seats. I then asked if we could turn off the TV as it was flashing quite brightly and was really very distracting but were told that someone wanted to watch the game. After the first game we asked a second time if it could be switched off but someone was still watching. Looking around the restaurant it seemed that all other diners were with partners and not watching the match.
Once I went downstairs to the toilet I discovered a number of free tables which I was really disappointed by especially as I had booked close to six weeks in advance.
As always, the lobster pasta was delicious but if I wanted to watch the football, I would have gone to the pub.
Very nice - nothing special
Food and service very good but we were sitting next to very loud customers which honestly spoilt our evening
Always great. I eat there more than at any other restaurant in London and they have never failed on the food.
Excellent food! Great service.
Never experienced such a rude hostess ever who instead of apologising for my food arriving after 45 minutes (inspite of 4 reminders) shouts back at me stating that cant I see that shes busy ! I mean..Hullo !!
I saw her at a distance shrugging and shouting at the other table too..!!
I mean WOW !! Il Baretto !! Keep it up !!
Spoiled our mood for the evening.
As always great food , friendly service .
Great food, good service but quite a bit of a background noise
Just a lovely catch up with friends with good food, wine and pleasant service
Very mediocre. River Cafe price, zizzi food. Would have been better off at Zizzi. Pretentious overpriced Marylebone joint with not much to enjoy.
Great food, great wine, great service. Always a great experience. Best beef carpaccio and the truffle macarroni WOW... getting hungry just thinking about it.
I've eaten at Il Baretto several times and never had anything less than great food and a lovely time. The Lasagna is excellent!
Music was appalling. Value of food was poor. Wine was very expensive
We had expected the restaurant to server proper Italian foods, but we were really disappointed. We ordered some salad, antipasti, pasta and pizza. Apparently the food was pre cooked and probably only heated before serving. Taste was not awful, but definitely not worth paying GBP20 per plate. It's also disappointing that big TV screen and dance music didn't match the atmosphere of the restaurant in Marylebone.
At first the music was so loud it was unnerving. It was lowered without a request thankfully. The pasta (cacio e pepe and chingale ragu ) was outstanding; perfect al dente!!!!
Amazing seasonal white truffle menu! We loved how dishes we expected to be heavy ended up being light and impeccably well balanced. Looking forward to going again soon!
Took my girlfriend here for dinner, the ambiance was amazing, the wine list was extensive and good; food was incredible
Had sea bass was bad I think it was off
Food was good being near the toilets not so good just a
