We had lunch there and it was good. Dino was really nice with us and gave us some tip. I had spaghetti with clams , delicious. Location isn't great but food and people are good.

I had a dinner in the reastaurant and I was quite satisfied with it: the appetizers were very delicious, as well as the first course. The draught wine is good. Anyway, the prices are a bit high for a "trattoria", it is not a restaurant in the very sense of this word (plastic tables and chairs, noisy and messy like... More

45mn waiting to take order Then 20mn waiting for the water (wine never showed up except on the bill at the end) Lousy live music... A perfect candidate for "nightmare in a kitchen" Too bad cos some in the kitchen can cook well, some pasta and fish dishes were good. Unless they change attitude they will close in some years......

Nino is such a gracious restaurant host. We had an excellent lunch of pasta and salad, then returned the same day for mussels, vegetables and the amazing tuna carpaccio. Highly recommended. Don't worry about the exterior appearance...the meal is worth the short trip away from the town center.

We had dinner at La Baracca twice during our stay in La Maddalena. From outside the restaurant does not look promising.... the food is instead excellent. They serve all local specialities, pasta, fish and meat. Do not miss the "Degustazione di pesce" it is delicious. Service can be slow if the restaurant is full. We have been told that the... More

Amazing experience, simple tasty and delicious food. I went there with my husband during our honey moon and the owner, Mr. Nino, was extremely friendly and provided us with excellent food recommendations. We liked the restaurant so much that we decided to return a second time during our short stay in Maddalena. A truly culinary experience, highly recommendable.

The 4 of us headed to this restaurant on the recommendation of a local, working at the Memorial Giuseppe Garibaldi and we were not disappointed! The owner, Nino, presented the fresh catch of the day when we recieved our menus. We selected 1 fish from his platter, charged by the KG. and it was large enough for 2 entrees, and... More

Sometimes I admit that I go inside a place for its look, but in this place I have to say that I gave a try to follow the reviews and enter into the Baracca. I ate lunch incredibly well! The waiters are very very very polite (which is a miracle in the island!!) I specially have to name Laura! She... More

Considering the fact that at Maddalena everthing is costy, this well signposted restaurant offers fair prices for good quality and friendly staff. Simple pasta dishes and fresh meat and sometimes porchetto suckling pig on the menu, but no island specialties. No scenic view, which is a pity for a restaurant at Maddalena! No English spoken
