Ancient pasta & local cheese

For the best in Villafranca di Lunigiana, go to Piazza di Sopra. Located at a really nice square with a beautiful terrace. There's enough choice on the menu, makes it difficult to choose. The starters (a mix of local tastes) was perfect. The main courses could use a bit of decoration. Top choice!

A lovely, top level family restaurant managed by Laura, a smiling and kind young women who is also serving, and her mother who is an outstanding chef. Traditional local cousine of Lunigiana, the amazing area in the north of Tuscany so close and influenced by Liguria (Cinque Terre) and Appennino Mountains. The location is stunning, right on an incredible ancient... More

Friendly and perfect service, great Italian food, great historical location. Don't forget to try fresh ravioli prepared with local ingredients. Everything was just perfect.

While on travelling, I am used to select Hotels and Restaurants based on the positive references and credits by TripAdvisor. I have to say that this restaurant fully deserves an excellent comment. Good food, warm environment, friendly staff, reasonable prices. I would recommend the restaurant to all my Scottish friends and, in particular, I suggest "Gli Intensi Ricordi di Lunigiana"... More

You don't just happen to see this place while driving. It is located in an ancient piazza called Fileto near Villafranca, Italy. Recommended by people that own the place we stayed at, they got us in on a busy Sunday. The appetizer we ordered was probably the best I ever had and was made from simple fresh ingredients. Our pasta... More

We have dined at 'Sopra' several times, and we are always delighted by the excellent food, the beautiful surroundings, and the lovely, warm welcome from Tiziana Falorni and her daughters Laura and Chiara. Yesterday they surpassed themselves, providing a wonderful feast that culminated in a 'sorpresa' for dessert, which they resolutely refused to describe, but which turned out to be... More

Very good food in this family restaurant run by mother (the real "soul" of the kitchen) and two daughters (one doing great desserts and the other helping servicing the tables and quite charmy). Also very nice location in the beautiful square in Filetto, an amazing old village...a must see in Lunigiana.

Had our dinner in the small courtyard adjecent to the restaurant. The family prepared an excellent meal that we enjoyed fully. A reference for local traditional cuisine in a pleasant, calm setting. Personalised service is added as an extra bonus.
