Excellent place with an amazing collection of antipasti and an impressive wine list and local beers. Two small complaints: (a) our pasta was ... "cut in smaller pieces" as if we were older people... 8-) The official explanation was that they thought that only italians like the "long version" ... 8-) (b) our grilled sea-bass was kind of salty (other...

Such a great place to spend the evening in La Spezia! Fantastic food, friendly staff, good prices! We stayed in La Spezia for three days and all of the evenings were spent there. The tastiest grilled salmon ever! Great pizzas! Fantastic wines! 10 stars out of 5!

We had a lovely dinner here in late May 2016. It is perfect for its services, excellent sea food and reasonable prices. I definitely recommend it for a perfect dinner. Try its spaghetti with sea food, grilled calamari and fish of the day and local beers. You won't be regretful.

Stumbled across this restaurant when strolling around the La Spezia marina area. Its not easy to find but well worth the effort. We had one of the best lunches in some time.

Wow! This restaurant was simply amazing. Prices are very good and the food is simply delicious. We asked for Focaccia to go and they gave it to us in a small box. Also, the ingredients that they use are genuine. I highly reccomand the Fritto Misto and the Polletto alla griglia.

The service was exceptional and the attention to detail was very professional. I would most certainly return there again and I thank the owners for making our evening very... More

Had two wonderful meals at Barrabordo last week. Good food, not the normal variety offered by most Italian restaurants. Good selection of starters, paasta and mains and delicious desserts. Portion sizes were good Good wine cellar
