Baratta's as worth a visit tothe South side. Parking can be tight so get there early (during lunch). Prices are reasonable,but hte atmosphere is lacking. Serivce can be hit or miss, but it seems everyone in the place knows each other! Try the chicken sandwhich, it is garlicy and good. They are also good at catering if you have a party coming up.

Great service, lousy food. Really very disappointing. Italian specialties were mediocre, bland and
poorly prepared, particularly the homemade raviloi that was too large, doughy, and tasteless. We drive
thru Des Moines regularly and always stop for dinner; not at Bratta's again, though.

My wife and our families first went to Baratta's for our wedding reception and every year we make it our place to go for our anniversary.Our two young children even love the food there. I've been to every Italian restaurant in town and no one compares to Baratta's.The wait staff are quick,personable and attentive.The chef's cook the best steak DeBurgo in town and I have lots of other favorites there such as their delicious seafood Genovese,calamari linguini, and their succulent pizza.If you're looking for great,normally expensive food for inexpensive price and people who honestly care that their customers are both satisfied and that they'll return then Baratta's is just what you're looking for!

Great food, Great Service, Incredible Deal. This cozy trattoria is one of the city's best kept secrets with filling meals, warm ambiance, & service with a smile. Baratta's is sure to quickly become one of your favorites. No matter where you are in town, it is definitely worth the drive.

Message from Baratta's

When you come to Barattas, you really are home. In fact, the Baratta family once lived in the rooms where diners now gather for meals and special occasions. The family began their journey in the Des Moines food scene when they opened a small grocery store in the front of their home. Specializing in Italian foods and ingredients, the Baratta name became synonymous with traditional Italian recipes. In 1993, the family sold the store and home to three local Lincoln High School alums, Joe Gatto and Curt and Lisa Kruger. Today, Joe and Lisa are continuing to maintain the charm of the original shop by serving classic Italian recipes daily, including lasagna al forno, steak deburgo, and cannolis. Through the years, a wide variety of flavors have been added, to include American cuisine as well. Barattas has been a Des Moines staple for over 50 years and is always welcoming new guests to the table. With multiple locations now open, catering available, and take-out options, there are several ways to enjoy our menu. From celebrating anniversaries and birthdays to fueling kids up before football games and dances, Barattas is a tradition that keeps getting better.
