Simply excellent!

I guess it deserves the first place in Barga; I have not eaten in any other restaurant in this town but I can't imagine they could have food of a similar quality.

The service was very good, the waiter knew English and had an English menu. We ordered meat dishes, pasta and roast potatoes. The amount of food was small compared to the cost. The meat and pasta was delicious. The roast potatoes were below average, refried .... The room we ate was very small and uninteresting.

Good choice of wine, the dishes are served in a interesting modern manner - the owner has his best foot on running this business. You will have a pleasant evening going there.

Fabulous food - local truffle pasta was just delicious but outside seating very limited and child facilities not great.

Just visited this small, well-hidden but highly commendable place. Being part of a group, our host pre-ordered a multi-course for dinner. Impeccable quality and taste of the food, we were taken through the delights of the Tuscan kitchen. Paste, meat and cheese in their best presentation. A great treat.

As Barga goes into semi hibernation for the winter it is good to know that there are still some restaurants serving excellent food throughout the winter. As well as their excellent menu available at lunchtime and for dinner, Scacciaguai has introduced a pranzo veloce of two courses including wine/water/coffee for only €13! (Tuesday to Friday) The quality and service are... More

We stayed at Acchiappasogni B&B (which happens to be located above Scacciaguai) for a week, and had lunch / dinner at the restaurant 3 or 4 times. Overall, the food was very satisfying, good portions and value for money. Do not expect anything too creative - Scacciaguai serves traditional Tuscan fare, and they do it well. The menu is not...
