Best meal of our entire Italian trip!

We haven't yet been to Venice, but of the places we ate in Naples, Rome and Florence, this was by far the best! The beef was tender, cooked perfectly, and incredibly flavorful. The pasta dishes melted in our mouths. Service was great! This is one of those memorable experiences that we will... read more

We had the fixed price lunch (bargain at 13euros a head) which comprised a generous caprese salad, cous cous with roasted vegetables, grilled sausage with roast potatoes and a glass of wine. Our children had simple pasta dishes. Very friendly and efficient staff.

Another place we visited at the hotel's suggestion. I think everyone in there were tourists except for the servers who did happen to speak good English. I ordered the ravioli as a primi dish and the portion was so big I couldn't touch the fish entree that I ordered. The fish (Cod/white fish) of which I had a small bite... More

The day we were in town, it was a national holiday, so most things were shut, and there were lots of locals looking for food. So we were happy to get a table. The waiter spoke good English & was helpful. The whole meal. took 2 hours as they were very busy, but we were in no rush, so no... More

On one of our many trips to Barga we stopped in for dinner on the recommendation of our hotel. It had a great atmosphere, and the food was very good.

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.

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 food was simply delicious, and the staff really helpful. However, if you want to go there during weekend you'd better make a reservation.

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.
