A Remarkable Dining Experience at Barbetta Restaurant By Dr. Pola Rosen
If you ever want to enjoy a spectacular lunch or dinner and retreat entirely from the hustle and bustle of the city, dine at Barbetta Restaurant, the oldest single family-owned restaurant in New York City. In the family tradition, Laura Maioglio, a Bryn Mawr and Barnard grad, proudly has chosen to continue her father’s work, carefully preserving traditional Italian dishes with a strong emphasis on nutrition and healthful preparation.
The lush private garden behind the four townhouses that comprise Barbetta is host to songbirds and blooming flowers, a gurgling fountain, and a spectacular wine list. Set in the heart of the theater district, Barbetta is a jewel not to be missed. Having visited once, you will return again and again to Barbetta, truly the quintessential Italian restaurant. #
