Inspired by the chic mid-century yacht culture of Southern Italy and the fresh flavours of the Pacific Northwest, we bring sun-drenched coastal flavours to Calgary.

Our dishes reimagine quintessentially Mediterranean fare with locally sourced West Coast ingredients. From zesty aperitifs, fresh crisp sides, bright mains and unashamedly indulgent desserts, each item on our menu will refresh your senses and transport you to a sunny boat deck on the Amalfi Coast.

    Not sure if it is because I am at Barbarella all the time, but the staff went out of their way to accommodate my unreasonable demands. Made a reservation at 5:00 for two people but instead showed up with four. They were also 20 minutes late because Google Earth sent them to the wrong address. The Barbarella team found us a table that fit all four of us comfortably and no pressure to leave. I will be back again very soon...probably before the end of the week ;)

    It was hard to find a place open on mondays. I've never been here. The menu looked amazing, and it did not disappoint. So many places do italian, and it's all fuddy-duddy Tuscan / classico/traditional Nona food (which is fine, but it is done to death). This is modern, non pretentious, well priced, covetable dishes. We chose a seat on the patio and it wasn't too loud. I was so delighted with all our food choices. I also love the design / colour of the space. The servers and staff were genuinely friendly and caring. And it was very classy how they marked my dad's birthday :)

    Great place. Really enjoyed my dining experience there. I was alone and sat at the bar, made some friends and enjoyed a lovely pizza and and a delicious endive salad. The atmosphere was terrific. I would go again in a heartbeat.

    My wife and I needed a place for dinner before a theatre event. Having been to Barbarella only during the lunch hour, it made sense for us to try it out in the evening. We were not disappointed. Unfortunately, we just missed happy hour by 15 minutes, however, we enjoyed a lovely bottle of wine at the server’s recommendation, and simply had a dinner of shared plates from the appetizer and small plates list. These were all cooked to perfection and the delightful attending staff were friendly, interesting to talk to, and attentive. I highly recommend Barbarella for an early dinner and from having dined there a handful of times now can say that a visit there will not only be delightful, but memorable. A big shout out to Sophie (“Sopie” ha ha) who helped us have a terrific time.

    I took a client to Barbarella for lunch. The waiter was very attentive taking our drink order soon after being seated. We both ordered our entree’s and had time to discuss business matters. The food was served, it was warm (we were on the patio) and very tasty. Our drinks were replenished and additional toast ordered and received. Overall our food was very good as was the service.

    Everything, but the noise level, was perfect. We were on the upper level so it was quieter so it was fabulous. The food was brilliant and the serving staff were amazing. We will definitely come back. The deserts were absolutely delicious

    Has gone down since opening in terms of service and food. Also credit card required for reservations yet patio “first come first served”which is frustrating to those who have a credit card secured reservation. Better value elsewhere downtown for the prices here.
    BarbarellaResponded 5 days ago
    Hi Char, Sorry to hear that you were unhappy with the food and service. Would you be so kind as to reach out to us directly and provide a bit more insight into your experience. We can be reached via email at info@barbarellabar.ca As Calgary weather can fluctuate so much in a day, we do not reserve our patio to ensure that we have the space to accommodate all reservations should the weather turn on us. With how large our patio is, we feel this is the best business model for us. -Barbarella Bar
