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 !

La Barcaccia, run by brother and sister from Umbria (she cooks), was a recommendation from a local. It's hidden away in a little piazza where cats like to hang out. Very quite, nice outdoor seating, but most of all FANTASTIC food. The Strangozzi Spoletina (the local eggless pasta with spicy tomato sauce) was the best we had in Umbria. Rolando... More

This restaurant is off the "main thoroughfares" in Spoleto but it is well worth seeking it out. It is on one side of a very quiet, quite small square which is currently undertaking some renovation building work but this in no way detracted from our dining experience. We ate dinner on their terrace and enjoyed antipasti, pasta and dessert, with... More

While visiting Spoleto for several weeks, we have found lots of great restaurants. La Barcaccia riates as one of our top finds. We also almost missed it because of its set back location and some current construction. What makes this place special, along with the food, is the great setting and delightful server/owner. The rooms are decorated with posters from... More

We found the restaurant hidden away behind the clock tower in Piazza Del Mercato. Don't be put off by the building works, can't believe they are still going on. The food was delicious, we had tortellini with truffles and cream, una per due, one dish for two. We both had fillet steak and it was truly delicious, melt in the... More

We almost missed this restaurant but saw a sign leading up to a piazza that was under construction. What a lucky break that we followed the sign and overlooked the very temporary construction work in the piazza. At La Barcaccia we were treated to one of the best meals I have ever had. I highly recommend the penne norcina, but... More
