“Lovely food, lovely restaurant, lovely staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

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 wine, water and espresso our bill for two was only €49. If you are in Spoleto for a few days we recommend that you try this restaurant.

“Simply Delizioso!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

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 the music festival. My husband and I loved the strangozzi Spoletina, the wonderful beef with arugula and oil, the bruschetta with newly pressed, and so delicious, olive oil. We will go back for a third time before we leave this beautiful city. Reasonable prices for the quality and service. My only criticism is the too bright lighting. Make sure you go!

“Don't miss it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

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 mouth. But our dessert...oh my god...chocolate tortellini. It was scrumptious, soft runny centre. Delicious. Great value and attentive waiter. Will definitely be returning, don't miss an opportunity to experience delicious food.

“A Hidden Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

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 the tortellini was also excellent. The owner waited our table and was most enjoyable. This is Italian dining at its best: unpretentious, fresh, flavorful and simply remarkable. Don't miss this hidden gem. The cost of the meal scarcely reflected its quality -- a great value as well as a great meal.

“Good food, great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

This really nice local restaurant is rather hidden behind some building works. The food is really good - fresh cooked vegetables, light delicious pasta....and really good value for money.
We had lunch there, but it would be equally good for dinner.
