An outpost of Italian charm in the centre of Godalming, Barbaracca offer up an authentic insight into the cuisine of the bel paese, particularly the cuisine of Sicily. You can find them on Wharf Street in the town centre, and when you make your arrival, you’ll be met by a huge menu of Italian favourites and daily specials: we recommend heading straight to the home-cooked Sicilian dishes, which are very much the house specialities. Book a table at Barbaracca and take a trip to Wharf Street, just off the High Street, and bring your biggest appetite with you.

Serving something up Sicilian style might mean something altogether more sinister to most people, but in the deep dark depths of Surrey, they know a little better. Barbaracca on Wharf Street in the town centre of Godalming is an Italian restaurant that specialises in the cuisine of Sicily, the football at the end of the Italian boot, and home to some of the finest food that the nation has to offer. Expect French, Arab and Spanish influences, as well as plenty of seafood and citrus – when you dine at Barbaracca, you’re for as authentic a Sicilian experience as you can have without ending up with a horse’s head in your bed.
The menu that they offer down on Wharf Street in Godalming town centre is so filled with Italian classics that we struggle to fit it all in. Barbaracca offer chicceti, small sharing plates, and platters of Sicilian antipasti to start with, and then back them up with a huge range of mains and ever-changing daily specials, chosen based on the freshest market vegetables available. We’d plump for the hake fillet with lemon and caper sauce, served up with a side of rainbow chard. Bellissimo!
We've been coming to this restaurant for years, both in its previous guise of La Luna and now as Barbaracca, and have never been disappointed. Great food and service.
We were big fans of its forerunner La Luna. Barbaracca provides the same great food and service in a more informal atmosphere. Highly recommended for lunchtime and evening.
Excellent friendly service and excellent food with a Sicilian theme. I would thoroughly recommend Barbaracca to others whether for lunchtime or evening. I will be going again!
Great restaurant, great food, really interesting wine list. Staff are always friendly and welcoming. Oddly the Quandoo system cancelled our reservation but we rang the restaurant and they reserved us a table with no issues. Highly recommend the restaurant. One of our firm favourites in Godalming Guildford area and has been for many years.
We hadnt been to this restuarant since it changed from La Luna (which I liked, but my partner didnt) We thought the 'new' restuarant was great, it has Lovely atmosphere, very friendly staff and good food (Loved the courgette starter). My partner thought it was so much better than La Luna, I think we will be going back when we are in Godalming again.
A very friendly place with wonderful food, that's all tone needs to know. But add to this the lovely atmosphere, even early in the evening, attentive staff and the willingness to share recipes, and you really can't go wrong. I took my family there for supper and we had a wonderful evening.
We decided to visit for a special birthday treat with friends. We always experience great food and service at Barbaracca - we'll be booking again soon!
Best meal out we've had in ages! The service was professional and attentive without being over the top. Food delicious and a reasonably priced. 3 courses with a good wine and coffees under £100. We were happy to give a big tip. Would definately go again and recommend to friends and family.
Family friendly with good children's menu. Not sure the burrata was as good as last time -had it twice before but this was more like ordinary mozzarella... The menu probably could do with being changed or a few 'specials added (if there were any no-one mentioned this). However made to feel welcome and the atmosphere is good so will no doubt return
Great lunch with the kids. They were looked after with well sized portions (not too big or small). Really enjoy Barbaracca when ever I've been.
It was our first visit to Barbaracca, we had a great time. Lovely restaurant, helpful and friendly staff and excellent food. Will definitely come again.
Barbaracca is a wonderful Italian restaurant with really good dishes and professional and friendly staff. I am sure I'll be back sooner than later :)
Absolutely superb meal. The food was delicious and fairly priced sand the staff were perfectly attentive. Extremely authentic food and atmosphere. The best chips I've had in the UK (don't judge, had actual Sicilian food as well!). 10/10 would 100% recommend to singles, dates, couples and families.
Fantastic supper. We both had the goats cheese mousse to start, followed by a fish special and the stuffed chicken for mains. Just managed to share a delicious tiramisu which was worth the calories. All was yummy and efficiently served by the friendly staff. Highly recommend.
Very good experience. The staff were very welcoming. The restaurant has a homely atmosphere. Potato and spinach croquettes to start, very nice but the dipping sauce was a little bland to my palette. Lamb for main, pink as advertised, delicious accompaniments. Tiramisu for dessert, excellent. Overall, a great evening, looking forward to our next visit.
We arrived for our dinner reservation and were greeted immediately by the welcoming and friendly staff. The atmosphere was warm and relaxed. We were served some fabulous food made from fresh local produce which tasted great. The waiting staff were friendly and efficient. Would certainly recommend for a relaxed great tasting evening meal.
We had a great meal everybody at our table agreed to return, food was excellent and staff friendly and accommodating. It wasn't crowded but i expect all the chain restaurants give discounts, if that is the case they are missing splendid food.
We went on a Saturday night and had such a lovely experience: great staff and delicious food (had rib eye steak and the mussel casserole). The place has a nice vibe, easy going with a good buzz. Definitely going back.
Loved the food, the new deco is fun, happy and creates vibrant atmosphere. The service is excellent, friendly and refreshing to see that waiters know their wines and food. Would definitely go back again and highly recommend to others!
Excellent food and service. Very friendly staff and really enjoyable environment. They serve outstanding Mediterranean food - i enjoyed everything from zucchini for starter to something (I do not remember the name) for desert. Really outstanding in service
