La Barca: "Mostly a miss" Barca - CLOSED Tip by Tijavi
Barca - CLOSED, Rome: 2 reviews and 2 photos
In a city as big as Rome, restaurants are a hit and miss affair. This one is mostly a miss - but not quite totally. My spaghetti with clams and mussels was not bad, it was not fabulous either. For mains, I ordered Sardinian roasted suckling pig and I was given a horrible part - somewhere near the bony leg - and the waiter tried to sugarcoat it by telling he'd given the best part; well, it wasn't my first time to have suckling pig, or pork for that matter! The mimosa - a dessert of cake with fresh berries, was like the pasta, mediocre.
The waiter was very chatty and very friendly, but he seemed too aggressive in recommending dishes. I like to take my time to ask questions especially if it's my first time in a restaurant. This is not fastfood!
