The much loved IL BARETTO restaurant is located in the dining area of the Paddo Inn. Enter through the front doors and head down the stairs to be taken into a world of delicious traditional Italian dishes and flavours.


IL BARETTO offers its iconic unpretentious, relaxed charm that the restaurant is known for as well as menu favourites like deep fried baby calamari, homemade lasagna and veal meatballs. Wines cater to a neighbourhood Italian vibe and of course, there’s also Aperol spritzes and a blood orange negronis.


Our front bar that you know and love continues to operate as is, run by Solotel, with the addition of a bar menu curated by the IL BARETTO team.
