Barbatella Brings Delectable Italian Delights



Barbatella Spirited Italian Trattoria
recently opened at the corner of  Naples’ Third Street  South and 13th  Avenue South, offering a bounty of foods in a trio of welcome settings.

Enjoy lunch or dinner in the sunlit open courtyard—perfect for people watching; have a pizza, salad, grilled steak or fish  in the cozy brick-lined  trattoria, or get comfy in the spacious new bar that also overlooks Third Street. Where else can you choose from three wonderful and quite different dining settings?

 The food is light, healthy and full of flavor— like its nearby big sister, Chef Fabrizio and Ingrid Aielli and Lily Montes’ highly regarded Sea Salt. I enjoyed orecchiette with sausage, roasted Berkshire pork, half Long Island duck, lamb chops, fried calamari and several thin crust pizzas baked in the authentic wood-fired oven. There are 100 wines by the glass, and over a dozen freshly made creamy desserts from the gelato counter.  Come to Barbatella for a rewarding taste treat in a casual setting.
