Came here for a "carb dinner" the night before the NYC Half Marathon in March 2018. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!!! First the location and decor. Barbetta claims of fame is to be the oldest Italian restaurant in NYC and in reality it looks like it has never been remodeled since it opened its doors at the beginning of the last century, the clientele is also ancient and I have nothing against elderly people but even joked with my wife that the average age of customers was easily over 80 years old and it felt we were having dinner in a nursing home. The food was OK, nothing stellar but overpriced. The wine list was mediocre to say the least and VERY overpriced. I will certainly never come back nor recommend to friends. There are many other better and more affordable options.
