Cosy local venue

Sunday lunch on a wet day. We were Well received and looked after. Local food, a bit small on the proportions, but hot pastas and grilled main courses. The skewered mets taste disappointing.

We found the restaurant La Barcaccia this summer, during our visit to Spoleto. The ambience was most pleasant in this owner run restaurant. The staff were friendly and attentive and as lovers of Italian cuisine we found the food to be delicious. As we got to know the owner, following several visits, we were fed by suggestions from the kitchen,... More

We got two recommendations for restaurants in Spoleto, La Barcaccia was one of them. The location is fantastic, just behind the fountain in the central piazza. However the view is limited to the smaller hidden piazza, which is quiet, and not much happens there. The owner sat with us and we had a very nice chat. Follow is recommendation for... More

I have eaten here countless times now, it is by far the most enjoyable meal to be had in Spoleto. It is traditional and often rustic food, very fresh and delicious. The wine list is exceptional too. The service and host (Rolando) is very enthusiastic about making sure everybody has a great meal in his place and he is a... More

Our host cheerfully greeted us and led us to a well-positioned table where we enjoyed the artwork surrounding us. Our chosen entrees were well-prepared and cheerfully delivered. Dessert was a treat after hiking all day in this beautiful hill town. I highly recommend a visit to this restaurant.

If you enjoy Spoleto festival, typical food and great host, you will love this pearl. Hidden just behind the fountain, great service by the very approachable and honest Luciano. All coming from his suggestions, he can definitely satisfy your demands. Great bruschette, fried zucchini flowers and tagliata. Dessert could be better, just because the typical creescionda had run out

Whenever we find ourselves in Spoleto across lunch time this is nearly alwys the restaurant we head to. It is simple, friendly and we've always found the quality of food to be excellent. The only reason I've gone for 4 stars instead of 5 is that I've only eaten a simple pasta lunch and not yet tried a full range... More

La Barcaccia is our "home away from home." It,s menu offers what Umbria does best: uncomplicated dishes of seasonal ingredients, thoughtfully-prepared and always delicious. Rinaldo is a charming and generous host. His sister and sister-in-law in the kitchen, and their waitress Christina, are warm and delightful people. There is no English spoken here, and our Italian is terrible, if well-meaning.... More

We had lunch in the Barcaccia, the owner recommended the day's special, baccala, salted cod, and it was great, the best such fish dish I ever had. And not even expensive !
