We had several dinners here, the food is fantastic and fresh, the cuisine is mainly fish but they also offer some land options. I suggest you speak with Piero or he's son the patrons of this classic fish restaurant they will suggest you what to order. The restaurant was once a docked boat were the name comes from.

Too expensive for this middle quality. Not fresh! To much garlic. Sepia like plastic. And tripadvisor become also only 1 point! No more!

I've been to La Barca 3 times and, judging by the overall experience it is a very good restaurant. There were several dishes that surprised me with their perfection, for example the best chocolate mousse I've eaten in my entire life. Gnocchi with baby squids and tomato sauce, see bass and fish tartare are also worth mentioning. But the third... More

We had a great dinner based on very traditional Tuscan seafood dishes. Excellent quality. We had Caciucco (seafood soup), paccheri con triglie (seafood maccheroni), and a delicious dessert. The only thing we did not appreciate was the fact that the pasta was probably not homemade. For the rest, five stars.

We have a home in Tuscany for 8 years - and have visited Forte Dei Marmi on many occasions - somehow we have missed this place until now. It was our last day before flying home. I "googled" - "best Venetian steaks" in F-D-M; and found this place and booked a table . What a find. The restaurant is sort... More

Family run business. 47 years. They take pride in their service, quality of food ,and treating you like family. Season is almost over and they are still busy but tells you a lot.

This is one of the favourite restaurants by locals during off season. This place has been around since 1902 and they certainly know what they are doing. Penne Imperialle is the pasta dish to try here, you've never had anything like this. Risotto di Mare is also great.

Why has this restaurant got good reviews - because it's GOOD!!! The staff are attentive - but not in that interfering way they just discretely observe and move to assist you at the appropriate point. Food, well I had seafood and it was up with the best - others had meat which looked equally good and judging by plates (which... More
