“La Barca; please up grade your kitchen”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

La Barca, old fashioned restaurant, the looks say dining in a luxery atmosphere, but when a waiter comes to you in jeans and an-other in a black suit, there is something missing. Menu of the day / 6 courses menu excl. wine. Starters are made of local ingredient’s, fish etc. but a remark has to be made to it; olive oil is overwhelming dishes, olive oil shall give an extra ’’taste’’ to the dish that’s why olive oil mend to be, when used on a dish. One starter tasted like a mix of tomato and fish out of the can, mixed with fresh cooked squid, very poor. Secondary dish was delicious, good penne and taste. Bravo. The main; good slow cooked fish, not spectacular. The desert; ice with berries is at no risk, but the crème Brule heated up in the microwave without no crisp top is an insult to your guest. La Barca can do better I think if I looked back to the taste of the penne. Staff shall be more on the background even if there are friends of them dining. On the scale 1 to 10, La Barca is a 7-.

“Meal over rated soup”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

The fish soup was a joke. Too clean all the shell fish required at least 40 minutes work. by then the soup was cold. At 20.00 Euro it was over priced. Very nice atmosphere and the staff excellent.

“Good Cuisine of Food Fish”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

The traditional restaurant La Barca is located on pleasant sea town Forte dei Marmi in the province of Lucca. In an environment elegant and welcoming, we have tasted the nice food of fish and excellent wine. The service was reasonable and the price a little expensive. But it is a good option to taste a fine cuisine and have pleasure taking a great wine. I recomend it.
