Having been here many times, their lunchtime menu 'workers menu' is without doubt one of the best. If the fish pasta is on the menu for lunch, it's s must.

Word of mouth from the local villagers led us to Barchetto. They knew what they were talking about. It's a fabulous setting and the service was very attentive, helpful and efficient. We only looked at the seafood options and were very pleased with our meals. The entree with 6 different tastings was absolutely delicious.

This is a difficult place to find but well worth it when you succeed. Using Fornoli on SS12 north of Lucca as your starting point, cross the bridge into town, turn left on SRT 445 and head toward Fornaci di Barga. As you enter Fornaci di Barga turn left and cross the river and then turn right onto SP 20. Several hundred yards north on SP 20, on your right is a gravel road leading down to the restaurant. Watch for restaurant signs. I told you it was difficult to find.

Once there sit back and relax. This is a true Italian restaurant with hand written menus, house wine better than most North American expensive wine lists and service which makes you wonder who taught them how to be so good.

The food is superb but best of all, the ambience and atmosphere makes the trip to Italy and the search for this restaurant worth the effort. The three course lunch with soup and a light desert for my wife cost 20 Euros ($33.00 CND). Oh, that price included the bottle of wine.

Do yourself a favor if in the Lucca area and visit this place, you won't be sorry.

not so easy to find, when you go there the first time. From Fornaci drive towards Lucca. Cross the bridge over the Serchio (the one facing the Manhattan bar), then drive perhaps a 100 meters direction Castelnuovo, and you'll see the sign going down towards the river: Il Barchetto. The place is full of local customers, families, couples, friends. Difficult to spot a foreigner. The dishes are beautiful to look at, delicious to eat, and abundant. Prices are very attractive. They have pizza, meat, fish, antipasti, primi, verdure, desserts! There were four of us, and we tried several dishes, each one better than the other! Service is friendly and efficient. The house wine good. There is also a pranzo di lavoro for 10 EUR at lunch time; and when the weather is nice, splendid seating outside near the pond. I am told you need to book on weekends. RECOMMENDED!
