The Family prides themselves on friendly service, good food at reasonable prices.
Always a good welcome, some nice options on the "Specials" chalkboard, food lovely, attentive and prompt service. Cannot recommend too highly .
Had a really good meal. Not the largest of menus. Traditional Italian food but no pizzas. Service was very prompt and friendly. Ideally situated for show at the Barbican.
Lovely family feel Italian restaurant in the heart of the Barbican. We selected it for its location but the food was lovely. Simple and fantastic value too. We would go again!
Very good Italian food and excellent service! Carbonara was exceptionally good, surprisingly enough, as many Italian restaurants in London don't actually achieve a simple good carbonara!
Family run bistro. Great food and friendly service. Excellent for pre-Barbican meal
We went for a pre-theatre meal and the service was prompt and friendly. Our food was lovely too.
Great meal and service but on a particularly quiet Tuesday just lacked ambience. I’m sure when busy this would be a great place
We enjoyed an excellent meal before a concert at the Barbican. Prompt service and attentive waiter.
Lovely meal for us and two granddaughters. Great service. We are lucky to have such a lovely place so near.
Excellent evening, as it is on all the occasions we have visited this restaurant.
Excellent family-run restaurant. Tasty, good quality food. Kind, accomodating, low key service in a calm, relaxing atmosphere. It was easy for them to cater for our party of seven.
Lovely place, amazing value for money, food was excellent. Family run, I read that it has been open for 45 years and it certainly feels like not much has changed in that time - Just simple and delicious Italian food. Great service all round and the food was out on the table extremely fast - ideal for a pre-theatre/show meal!
Small family restaurant, excellent staff and good food at a very reasonable price.
Handy for the Barbican. Looks a little basic but service friendly and food good. Good portion sizes. Desserts were unimpressive.
Very comfortable and warm restaurant with lovely service. Good value too. Only a couple of minutes walk from the Barbican, so very convenient. Thank you!
Really great food and great service in a family run Italian.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere - will be visiting again.
It is so lovely to have proper tasty food in a family run Italian restaurant interacting with both the mother, the father and the son. I can thoroughly recommend this place so much better than going to those large chain restaurants were the only value to the people serving is their hourly wage. Try it, you’ll love it. A small run independent restaurant offering daily specials.
Fabulous restaurant, no noisy background music so perfect for conversation. The food was delicious and excellent value.
Excellent service and tasty food!
Great night out. Very friendly staff, and very attentive. Food very good.
Very friendly service, good food and good value for money. Handily placed for the Barbican.
Baracca is a great place for some good quality italian food before a Barbican concert.
Baracca is a wonderful family-run restaurant with excellent food and wine and superb service. We have eaten there frequently since it opened nearly thirty years ago and it has never disappointed.
Quiet spot for a very tasty pre-concert meal. Staff very attentive and friendly.
Very close to the Barbican Centre.
Excellent food, I would recommend to everyone not just my friends! Lovely friendly service - good value for fresh, home cooked proper food. We’ll be back!
Great traditional Italian food, friendly service and open late enough for us to attend after a concert.
Good, friendly venue close to the Barbican Centre. We arrived at 5.30 on a weekday evening and were first customers but it was virtually full by the time we left just after 7. Good service, clear menu and speed of service gave us ample time to eat, chat and leave for a concert.
I've been dining at Barraca for many years and the family running the restaurant have always been very friendly, they provide good service and very tasty food.
good food - friendly service - convenient location - to be recommended
A nice little gem in the centre of London. A nice change from all the chain restaurants.
Good size menu, tasty food and friendly service.
All six of us loved it.
Lovely, friendly family restaurant. Very convenient for Barbican. Efficient service for pre- show dining at ood prices.
Haven't been here for a few years will be back soon.
Very welcoming, good situation and ambience with good, flexible service. Desserts particularly good as were the fries.
Excellent, friendly family-run authentic Italian restaurant. We always eat there when we go to the Barbican (except on weekends as they are closed on weekends)
Everything about the meal was perfect. The feel of the room was really nice and warm, great attentive service, reasonable prices and quality food. We were asked if we were attending the theatre/a show and from then on everything arrived so quickly. Very slick and professional.
I'm already planning my next visit. Probably the best Italian meal I've had in London!
Decent, inexpensive Italian in the City. Great for early evening dining
Good Italian restaurant both in terms of quality of food and service. The place itself is functional
In style but that’s fine given its value and position so close to the Barbican. Good experience overall.
Family run restaurant...vey friendly efficient service. Very good food...I had the best cooked skate in a long while. Will always come back
We met friends here who were going to an event at the Barbican. We booked early supper & were not disappointed with our choice.
Staff were welcoming and happy.
Food was really tasty & enjoyable & service was great.
Nice place to go before theatre!
Warm, friendly and efficient service - and delicious pasta!
