The 64-year-old Portuguese takes over from coach Johnson Smith, who was in charge on interim basis after the exit of Maxwell Konadu, earlier in the season.
Barretto becomes the third coach of the Porcupine Warriors this season.
Kotoko announced the deal on Friday morning on their various social media platforms.
