Super Tuscan Service and Food!

We had a completely enjoyable dinner in this tiny town in Tuscany. We sat outside in a romantic setting and ate the most amazing dishes. Complimentary prosecco preceded a wonderful tasting tray of charcuterie. We added a first course of spaghetti (perfectly done) with swordfish, radish, and... read more

Complimentary prosecco preceded a wonderful tasting tray of charcuterie. We added a first course of spaghetti (perfectly done) with swordfish, radish, and pistachios. Nearly full, we plowed on with a beef filet with truffles and... More

It was all ok, nothing more, nothing less. As in most restaurants in Italy it was easy to arrange my food to be gluten free changing the pasta and one of the sauces. Watching the chefs at work in the kitchen actually decreased our appetite as it looked like the cooking was done without any pleasure or passion - that's... More

We were in the Garfagnana region of Tuscany for about nine days and one of our visits was Barga. We had locals tell us about Scacciaguai and that we definitely had to go. First, it was a little difficult to find. There were initial signs to the restaurant once you enter the village, but then they disappear. We ended up... More

We had a little trouble finding the place, but were happy we persisted. The staff were very friendly and did an excellent job. Of course, we were there right at opening (7:30 pm) and the place was not crowded yet since we prefer to dine earlier than most Italians. We both had two courses that were excellent. They also have... More

When in Barga make sure you dine here. A very quaint restaurant where you can watch the chefs prepare your food from a TV screen in the dining area..homemade pasta is delicious.

When dined here because of the Trip Advisor rating and comments on the "friendliness" of the staff, as well as good service. Unfortunately, our experience did not match the reviews. The service was fair at best, and the server was unfriendly, to say the least. The food was good, but nothing specially.
