Amici! Trade in Thornbury’s trams for the cobblestones of Italy at Joanie’s Baretto.
Years ago, when we opened Umberto Espresso Bar, we wanted to bring you the best authentic Italian food, but I don’t just want a full belly - I want wine! I want to dance! I want to kick up my heels!
I saw that Melbourne needed a place that celebrated the best of Italia - a negroni after work, a prosecco before dinner, or a fine grappa or digestivo to end the night.
That, amici, is why we opened Joanie’s Baretto. I want to show you the other Italia, which is more than just eating. We enjoy all the things that make life great - vino, antipasto, musica!
Come to the bar before dinner and start the night in style, or come late and stay even later.
Join us, and become part of the family.
Un abbraccio, Joanie x
“Start the second evening at Joanie’s Baretto. Here you can experience a perfect Italian atmosphere and join in on a great tradition: Aperitivo.
Aperitivo is an Italian tradition where you – when you finish a day of work – go celebrate with a drink and cicchetti – small bites. And since you’ve been “working” your way around Melbourne, it’s the perfect excuse for you to join in on the fun.”
