12 years ago, Il Melograno Restaurant introduced the neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen to delicious, fresh, real Northern Italian food.
8 years ago, we opened Il Baretto to give our friends and neighbors a simple space to find great wine and aperitivo.
But as we say in Italy: La vita continua!
In this spirit is Il Baretto To Go, delivering a bit of Italy right to your door.
With Il Baretto To Go we begin as always with homemade bread and pasta made daily right here in our expanded kitchen. We then use the very best fresh ingredients to create made to order sauces as well as the very best quality meats and cheeses for our sandwiches. For lighter fare we feature our famous garden-fresh salads with grains as well as a variety of vegan, gluten free and whole wheat options.
But that’s not all. Il Baretto To Go is the first restaurant in the neighborhood to make the original Roman pizza cooked “Alla Pala” using real Italian ingredients, Neapolitan tomatoes, Italian unbleached flour and the best products from local markets.
We prepare traditional Italian gelato with only natural ingredients including fresh fruit and whole milk. We also feature homemade desserts to give you a real family meal.
As always, we thank you for your long time support and we will continue offering the same quality you have always expected.
