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!
Fantastic meal, great service and really reasonable. Such a lovely atmosphere too. Perfect for a lunch time catch up. Will definitely book for an evening meal soon to test out the full menu.
Traditional Italian restaurant with amazing food and amazing service. We couldn't recommend enough and will definitely be returning. The children absolutely loved the fact that they could make their own Ice-cream sundae too!
Went with a friend and enjoyed a mid week meal. Great restaurant and really good service and topped off with a lovely atmosphere. Will definitely go again to try more on the menu!
The staff were so friendly and attentive. The small menu had an abundance of delicious authentic options. Great atmosphere with quirky touches like a map of Sicily and wine crates decorating pillars. Will definitely go for a return visit.
Excellent service, beautiful food and cheaper than we thought it would be. Will definitely be back. The staff are very friendly and there are plenty of vegetarian options, which makes a change.
it was such a lovely dinner . This was our second visit at the restaurant and again it did not disappoint me and my family great fresh food and lovely staffs !
Full on a Tuesday night so we are not the only ones who think that this culinary link with Sicily is really good. Children friendly. Make it your next stop in Godalming.
Great food, wine, service and atmosphere. I had the mozzarella starter (a special), the lamb for my main and the chocolate cheesecake for desert, sharing a bottle of voignier. All were excellent.
We had a really lovely evening here. Great food, lovely ambience and decor and super friendly staff. We aren't local but we'll definitely be coming back to godalming for dinner here!
The food was wonderful. The service was friendly, but not too in your face. The atmosphere was lovely and relaxed. And it was all for a very reasonable price. Highly recommend.
It was very nice and had fantastic starter and main course, both utterly fantastic. Service was impeccable as always. Highly recommend and is a popular restaurant so reservation is strongly recommended.
I thought it was good value for money, very friendly service and the sea bass that two of us had was delicious , my other friend thought the pasta was stodgy and that she hadn't chosen well.
Fabulous food, friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere made this a thoroughly enjoyable dining experience This is definitely our restaurant of choice in Godalming and we would heartily recommend it.
Fantastic food, very friendly and attentive staff would definitely recommend and we will be back. Good selection of food and drinks and we were all happy with what we ordered.
We often come here as locals. It's good, honest thoughtful cooking. Service and prices are just as they should be. Sourcing is quality. Don't be afraid to ask for wine advice. You'll be glad you did.
Good service, friendly staff, lovely atmosphere. Food was of good quality and the wine was excellent. I would certainly return to this restaurant. A great place for a date night or to dine with friends.
This is a very friendly restaurant with a very accessible menu. The food is of good quality and the wine list is acceptable. This restaurant used to be much 'posher' but is now very informal.
Really friendly staff and great food. We will definitely come back here again for authentic Italian food. Only reason for giving 5 rather than 6 is that pizza was not on the Saturday night menu.
A rather informal setting with good ambience and excellent food which combines traditional Sicilian dishes with local flavours and produce. The wine list is extensive with wines being sourced across Italy. I would highly recommend.
The staff were fantastic, really friendly and helpful. The service was prompt and the food was amazing! Really tasty! Will definitely be visiting again when I'm in the area.
