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.

Great as always
We booked online. That was fine. While i appreciate they may be suffering from 'lock down. There were only two people upstairs catering for an almost full restaurant both inside and outside. The music, while pleasant was too loud and not necessary. For the price charged, the cutlery was very substandard, paper napkins and no tablecloths. Compare this with 2 Veneti, Steca, or, La Famiglia which are no more expensive and which we frequent regularly. We would not recommend this restaurant.
Food was amazing but the customer service needs to be improved, split Prosecco on the table and on my friend with no apologises and just left the spillage there. Had to get another waiter to cover the spill with a napkin.
very good food, service rather slow but with covid etc... possibly understandable, expensive. good food but overpriced a little
Our experience was beyond dreadful at Il Baretto. The staff were rude, stuck up, and appalling. We were the only people in the restaurant and had to call the staff over to ask for our wine and cutlery. Our reservation was at 12 and they informed us the kitchen wasn’t ready for 30 minutes. Our pasta came out undercooked. Total and complete joke. And the worst part was how the management handled it. I can hands down say I will never eat at this place again.
It was not the first time I've been to Il Baretto and it will not be the last. Knowledgeable and attentive staff. Food was great. Can certainly recommend the salt baked sea bass. nice ambience. Good to see it busy on a saturday night.
Very slow service and food quality has dropped from earlier. Not good value anymore.
Lost its buzz - everything poor, service surly, slow & rude.
Wonderful italian. The buratta is exceptional and the vitello tonnato is divine. Always fabulous good and a delight!
Excellent service and food, exquisite buratta with truffle followed by sea bass 1st shown to me boned then saw how brilliantly unboned by staff. Tiramisu sweet-dish superb as usual.
Nice Restuarant. Good not up to normal standard unfortunately
We had a fantastic dinner as always and it’s great to see all
the Covid protocol being so strict. We felt totally safe to enjoy our delicious dinner . Huge space between tables and a terrific atmosphere. Well done .,
My risotto was extremely salty, the tuna mayo in the Vitelli tonnato tasted mostly of mayo. Tables around us were very loud and we were in the basement, didn’t feel like fine dining. I like this place better at lunch time
Rude arrogant short staffed
Excellent food and service. Classic Italian food done very well, and a very extensive wine list with some good value wines as well as some tempting if expensive ones!
There were very few diners for a Sunday night. The food was average compared to the usually better standard. The 40 ponds off helped but still pricey.
Food great...staff friendly....service good...just a shame about the COVID screens
Great food, and pleasant service (we all had tuna steak and salad), however, no source of carbs meant additional order of potatoes - total price for one course thus quite high (£25) - hence value rating. However, I have used before and will use again particularly for business.
Clean and good service.
the restaurant was amazing and very busy
the food was good
the service was a bit slow
excellent and tasty menu
Amazing food and exceptional service! I will definitely be returning very soon. Everything was just so perfect!
Under the current circumstances the standard was good but not upto pre virus standards.
Prices increased,VAT reduced by 15% not passed on and menu & wine prices not updated on website.I don’t recall service being 13.5%,which it now is.
Whilst we all appreciate the difficulties of the nature of the business and the wish to recover losses,this is not the only restaurant in Marylebone who are taking advantage to do so.
How are their loyal local customers going to react after the Eat Out scheme,that will be telling.
After around 9:00pm Marylebone becomes a Ghost Town Monday to Wednesday
Let us hope that Restauranteurs like Il Barretto come up with a plan,otherwise they will all suffer together with us.
Very disappointed with the food . We have been coming for years and the food did not taste as delicious as previous visits . The truffle risotto had no taste of truffle . This view has been shared by many of my friends
The food is good (especially the tiramisu!), but overpriced. There were some flies inside the establishment (the doors and windows were open because of covid), and the ambiance/music was disappointing. No special gestures were made despite my partner and I going for our anniversary dinner.
