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!
Very good service and the food was amazing! The atmosphere was just right. My friend and I were running the Surrey Half Marathon the next day and had the lasagna - which just hit the spot! :-)
Excellent local restaurant. This was our first visit - we chose the restaurant for a birthday treat. Although it was not cheap, everything was reasonably priced for the quality of the food and drink. Friendly, efficient service.
The food was full of flavour - thoroughly recommend the risotto; the service was efficient and friendly, the wine and beer - do try the 4 punto beer - helped to make the dinner first class
Excellent food service and wines and really friendly for adults and children. Highly recommended. Really interesting menu and all freshly cooked. A good choice of smaller mains, Rapido or larger mains all very good quality
Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff. Authentic cuisine with Scicilian specialities. Perfect place for a quick simple inexpensive meal or for something a bit more special with an excellent choice of wine or craft beers. Highly recommended.
Great local family friendly restaurant. Lovely italian food and good service. Have been here several times and never been disappointed. A variety of meat and fish and pasta dishes. No pizzas except on Wednesday nights.
Excellent service, meal and all around great staff. Very authentic and loved the slightly eclectic vibe and decor with hand painted plates and many other fun items. All the staff were upbeat and extremely helpful.
Visited on the Saturday night; the restaurant was very busy. The atmosphere was great, lovely decor. Food was very tasty and the wine selection was great. Friendly and attentive staff. Will be definitely visiting again!
Loved it. Would definitely go again. Steak was melt in your mouth. Lovely little place so didn't feel crowded. Was lovely little touches like the chef walking past and asking if everything was all ok.
This is a great informal Restaurant with all the genuine Italian charm and friendliness you would take for granted in Italy. The food is terrific home cooking with an eclectic and interesting selection of Wines.
Brilliant restaurant, Best in Godalming by miles. Friendly staff and great food at a decent price. What more could you want? Daniele and his team make sure you have a perfect meal every time.
Wonderful and unusual Sicilian food, very different to the run-of-the-mill Italian. Lovely staff and reasonable pricing. Pear sorbet is heavenly. A big favourite of ours when it was La Luna - even better now.
lovely restaurant, relaxed atmosphere. Faultless and delicious food, with excellent and friendly service. You feel like you're sat, on holiday soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying the food and the company. Family friendly too.
Very nice and relaxing Italian restaurant with a great menu and specials. Great for couples and for larger groups as well. Highly recommend that you give it a try. You will not be disappointed.
Fantastic atmosphere! We had the Rapido lunch menu. The food is such good quality and so reasonable. Would definitely recommend it to anybody who wants to try somewhere independent rather than the usual chains!
Very relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. Lunchtime menu was more than adequate; would definitely recommend the Calamari and the Proseco was sublime, as good as some champagnes I have had, light and very drinkable, good choice for a birthday lunch.
Excellent food and very pleasant staff. The main course was particularly good ie bream and steak. Maybe could do with having a few more wines in the £20-25 region as only saw one. I will definitely revisit though :) Thanks
Great food and service-best Sicilian restaurant outside Sicily!!! Highly reccommend this place. We have had a table of 10 and 2 the past two times we have visited and both times fantastico! :-)
Fabulous! Get on their mailing list for their Wine Flight dinner specials held once a month. Daniele and his team are just wonderful - service is amazing and the wine's not bad either!
Very friendly Sicilian restaurant - great choice on the menu and specials of the day. Pasta is amazing and also great range of lovely starters. Nice relaxed atmosphere and really helpful friendly staff
