Great place for seafood with a cool, old school feel. The food was very fresh and tasty, the service polite and professional. They are affiliated with Ristorante da Clara in Lido de Camaiore. In comparison we liked the food at Da Clara a bit better, also the portions were more generous prisces lower - but overall this is still a... More

The place is a safe choice. It's not trendy, it's not innovative, it's not post... anything. It's just a place where you get a really good traditional seafood, good wine and good, friendly service. At reasonable prices. If this is what you want, go there. In at least the last thirty years you would not have been disappointed.

Lovely friendly atmosphere , welcomed with a glass of prosecco and nibbles before we ordered our meal. My ravioli was delicious and my partners fish soup contained a whole sea of fish! Main fish course of sea bass was excellent. Managed to share a dessert of ricotta with apricot sauce. They also served us sweet biscuits to end a perfect... More

Unable to find a table elsewhere we popped up in this restaurant and were stunned by the atmosphere as well as food and service! A lot of offers starting with prosecco and finishing with biscuits for dessert. A great menu and zucchini flan with truffles is a treat!

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
