Inspired by the unique delicatessens in the Lower East Side of New York City, Gary, the co-owner of Bretta & Co. on Ropewalks’ Heathfield Street, decided to bring his experiences along to share with the people of Liverpool. Run along with his sister – whose name is actually Bretta – he has managed to turn his dream into a reality. The duo are committed to sourcing local and organic produce whenever possible, with many ingredients coming straight from the farmer’s market. Open daily, Bretta & Co. is found conveniently by Liverpool Central in the city centre.
Overall the visit was extremely disappointing and fell far short of expectations based their website marketing. One of the 2 main courses we had was badly cooked. Despite most other eateries in the area bursting with customers, this one was virtually empty. This could be down to the uncaring attitude of the waiter who was more interested in his mobile than serving customers. Because of his obvious indifference to us , we left without dessert and coffee.
Shame that when we arrived at 3pm on saturday that it was empty, so lacked atmosphere. The events blackboard was out of date,and I believe (I didnt go in) that the deli didnt have much in. However, I had the fish and chips which were delicious but I would rather have had on a conventional plate, not a cold piece of slate. Wine was lovely. Didnt realise that when we booked we couldnt have starters as there arent any on the lunch menu, would have come for the evening menu instead. Enjoyable, but needs some tweaking.
Amazing food, lovely atmosphere! Staff were so friendly and welcoming, even chatted to the chef! Reasonable prices and great wine! Outstanding experience, loved every minute and can't wait to visit again!
Bretta & Co. is more than a gourmet restaurant – it’s a delicatessen, food store and wine shop all in one. Featuring amazing breakfasts, delicious sandwiches, afternoon tea, and freshly made desserts alongside an ample selection of craft beers and hand-selected wines, you could say Bretta & Co.’s got the whole bistro thing down pat. You can find this labour of love down Heathfield Street, just off Bold Street, in the heart of Liverpool’s Ropewalks, open from 8:30 am until 11:30 pm for your wine-drinking pleasure.
Starting off your day with a hearty gourmet breakfast at Bretta & Co. in Liverpool’s Ropewalks is never a bad idea. Take a world tour with breakfast items like the San Francisco (avocado on rye toast), the London (smoked salmon or smoked mackerel with scrambled eggs and toast) or the Florence (eggs florentine with spinach and ham). Come in during the afternoon or evening and experience the bistro’s hearty mains: free-range pork belly, aubergine curry and pan roasted lamb rump, to name just a few. We recommend the charter pie, stuffed with free range chicken, ham, leek and a cream sauce, slow-baked to perfection. Nourish yourself with a gourmet meal at this city centre bistro – book ahead!
