The restaurant has incredible setting. The staff is amasingly professional and curteous. Every singe dish on the menu is prepared to perfect 10. No misses. This is a place for those who love perfection. We went there every night for ten days. Will miss this place until next time.

This restaurant must be one of the oldest in the area and has a great atmosphere with lots of antique furnishings. The menu is different from other local restaurants, with dishes I've never seen anywhere else. We ordered something for my daughter by mistake and they replaced it free of charge, even though we'd actually eaten the dish for her... More

We were two times in La Barca last week and it was both times a great experience. Raw seafood as a starter was nicely fresh and tasty, the fish was grilled perfect way, the grilled vegetables were the hidden jewel however - slightly marinated, al dente - wow. Take a table at the garden place - fresh air and lots... More

If you're looking for a place for dinner in Forte, go to La Barca, you'll never regret it. Food, service, atmosphere - all in place. Order sea food soup (zuppo di mare) it's not a soup as one would expect, but rather a big portion of seafood stew, spicy and savory, fresh from the sea. The staff is incredibly friendly... More

Typical restaurant that will rip you off tourists. Overpriced food for low quality. Some of the waiters speak english. The others will just look at you as if you were some sort of alien trying to steal their food.

With a family of foodies with voracious appetites all Being happily sated. The fish was fresh and delicious as was the wines that were modestly priced. The pasta too was cooked... More

This is an old restaurant, typical tourist spot with live music (with an old musician with a keyboard) in the background. The staffs were friendly and food were not bad. We ordered 2 first courses, which were ok, but our 1 kg. steak florentina wasn't as tender as we hope it would be.
