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 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!

Been to restauant 20+ times in past. Took friends to show off the restaurant. They jammed the four of us into into a table for 2... very uncomfortable and tight while other 2 persons sat at tables for 4 persons. Food was extremely salted. Very disappointed what we were used to in previous dozens of visits. In past has been excellent.

Food is tasty and while some of it was excellent, some dishes were average. Brusque service and expensive for what it is, even for Marylebone.

Was a favourite of mine. Vitello Milanese was over breaded and overfried...tough to eat. Very hard to hear conversation. Were forgotten in a corner for 20 mins.
Pity...had some super dinners there..this wasnt one of them.

This is a very good 'family style" Italian restaurant. A little pricey for what it does but better value than some around and about it! The thew salt beef carpaccio is excellent as is the fried squids & courgettes,

The baked sea bass, the halibut, beef fillet, spatchcock baby chicken (off the bone), grilled lamb chops and air dried sirloin with mushrooms are all superb enjoyed on repeated visits.

the ice cream and sorbets finish the meal well.

There is a good wine selection and the wine waiter helpful and non patronising!

well worth a visit and we will be back!

While the service was good all three of our party thought the food was massively overpriced for what it was. We won’t be going back and wouldn’t recommend it when there are so many other great and fairly priced restaurants to choose from in Marylebone.

The food was very overpriced and the quality mediocre. The soup was appalling. When the waiter asked us if everything was fine and we tried to say we were not satisfied, he did not resound -either deliberately or because he could not speak English.

Food and ambience was fantastic. Unfortunately, the waiters let down the experience by not coming over and asking if we would like to order drinks or food, I had to ask the waiter after waiting 25 minutes of sitting there with our menus closed.

Amazing pizza!! Who would have thought Scamorza cheese and mustard greens go hand-in-hand!! Il Baretto did and it was out of this world!
Their inverted cheese cake was divine.
Thank you for your warm welcome and service.

The downstairs dining room was too loud for our table of three to even speak to each other without really shouting. The woman in charge was very friendly and apologetic when we complained but could not offer us an alternative place to sit so we just ate and left. We were so close to walking out but it was a Saturday evening and were concerned about where else we would find a restaurant with a free table.
The food was disappointing lacking any true Italian flavours, a real shame as we had read good reviews and were looking forward to some authentic Italian food. We also felt the food was overpriced.
The place was busy but mostly with large groups who were also having to shout to be heard, the noise level was almost painful.

In all an unpleasant experience we will not repeat.

I have been many times before to Il Bereto (bookings under different names), however this time was very disappointing. Within seconds of sitting down we were asked what we wanted to order, a theme which repeatedly occurred. Mains came out as we were still eating our starters and the table was cleared so that we didn’t actually have time to finish these starters. Literally within seconds of finishing the mains they were cleared and the desert menus were given to us. Throughout the evening everything felt extremely rushed, almost as if they wanted us out as soon as possible. Very disappointed given that we come here quickly regularly.

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!

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.

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
