Confirm Your Reservation at Masseria Barbera

Jump to last reply

I know several fodorites have made reservations and eaten at Masseria Barbera without any issues. In late July our hotel made a Sunday lunch reservation for us. Today we arrived at MB around noon and a woman came over to us and said they were completo. We tried to explain we had a reservation for two people at 1 pm. She said they had no reservations for singles only for three families that afternoon. I might add we do not speak Italian and she had minimal English. After much back and forth using sign language and whatever else might help, finally we gave her the name and phone number of our hotel and she called them. She then came back to us and said to return at 1. This entire conversation took the better part of a half hour before it all got cleared up. We returned with a large group at 1 and waited to c what they would do with us. Another woman motioned to us and took us to the only table set for two in between two large tables. They began serving us almost immediately. It was about 90 minutes into our meal that the larger tables sat down. So in the end it all worked out, but could have just as easily gone the other way. My advice is to make sure you or your hotel confirms a day or two in advance.
