Good choice of wine

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...

Greeted with a glass of prosecco, I had the truffle pasta, which was fantastic and my husband had turkey in a brown gravy, which sounds strange but he kept asking me if I was certain it wasn't veal--it too was delicious. Another odd but delicious dish was prawns over mashed potatoes that we shared. Service was good, food memorable and... More

Great front of house owner and we always eat his recommendation and wine choice. Truffle pasta to start and truffle fillet for main, both utterly lovely. They will never push a... More
