Could Be Betta

Barchetta may leave you fishing for flavor

Prices seem reasonable, with pastas $14 to $19 — and nothing over $30 — and a short wine list that shines a light on inexpensive Chilean and Argentine bottles, many of which are also under $30. But most starters are $10 to $12, and desserts $8 to $10, so a bill for one, sans wine, drinks, or tip, could top $40. That's not an outrageous amount of money for dinner, but it's an outrageous amount of money for these dinners. Lunch prices are lower, which makes Barchetta a better bet at that time.

While dining here we witnessed dolphins leaping from the water, silhouetted by the sunset like on some hokey picture postcard. Such imagery makes Barchetta a place to seriously consider when you're desirous of scenic cocktails by the bay. If you're desirous of decent budget Italian food, however, it might be wiser to dine across the road at Oggi's.
