There’s a beautiful restaurant on West 46th Street in New York City that you may not know about, but Barbetta has been serving hungry and happy customers since 1906. Today, it’s the oldest family-owned restaurant in New York City and it’s still going strong. This elegant Italian restaurant was founded by Sebastian Maioglio well over 100 years ago and it’s still owned and operated by his descendants.

The focus at Barbetta is cuisine from Piemonte, Italy’s northwestern-most region, so the dishes served there are indeed Italian, but include a noticeable Swiss and French twist. The decor inside includes antiques from this region as well, most notably the beautiful, 18th-century Piemontese chandelier in the main dining room that was once owned by royalty. A meal at Barbetta is a classy experience from beginning to end, and you’ll remember your meal at this establishment for the rest of your life. Read on to learn more.

Barbetta is a restaurant that you should not miss when you are in New York City. If you’re in town to see a show in the Theatre District, it’s the perfect place to start your night. It’s also great to know that you’re patronizing a restaurant that has been in the same family for more than 100 years – many thanks to the Maioglio family for keeping such a good thing going for more than a century – and beyond.
