Dined here with a large group which I had booked well in advance. The service is fantastic, very friendly. Food is consistently great and pretty good value for money. The big plus is that it is BYO (wine). The restaurant was extremely busy and we were a bit disappointed that even though we had booked weeks before we were really crammed in like sardines which was a little uncomfortable at times. But still a great time had by all!

We took English relatives to this restaurant and we all thoroughly enjoyed our Italian experience. The food was fresh, tasty and very authentic and the service was faultless. We have since recommended this to our daughter and her husband who also loved it there.

Busy Italian restaurant on the Mount main street. We all enjoyed our meals and the service was attentive.
The pasta is all made on site except the lasagna which is made by a friend in town. The ingredients are fresh and carefully prepared and presented. The selection of wines by glass or bottle are reasonably priced. Try the Otago Pinot Noir if you like red wine.

We visited La Barca just after returning from Tuscany and found the food very comparable. Excellent pasta, especially when paired with a great Italian wine.
