Was here in July 2014 and what a great surprise. We have eaten at L'Altana many times and love it but tried here. Niccolo and I think his brother Roberto were fantastic. The truffle pasta was unbelievable and cooked perfectly Al Dente. We also sat on the porch. Other review is correct as it is not big and that is... More

Get a table on the balcony and enjoy their focaccia. You'll see fireflies as you dine and watch the susnet. Most amazing food in Italy!!

Our hotel suggested this restaurant and described it as having excellent food with a local clientele and not touristy. They were right on all accounts. Run by two personable brothers and their sister the food was unquestionably the best in Barga. The service was professional and efficient. Based on the quality of the food the price is very fair value.... More

You can watch a live cooking on the screens in the restaurant. As for the food... We have followed the staff suggestions and have chosen a pasta with fresh mushrooms. The meal was way to salty! And the Tuscany white wine was horrible.

Another great little restaurant in Barga. Doesn't have a terrace so you have to eat inside but the food is fabulous. They have a TV that shows you the kitchen so you feel like you are watching a food network show but they are cooking your meal. Small restaurant so make a reservation.

Then an excellent pasta. Wrapped up dinner with a wonderful Steak with a lot of fresh truffles on top with a Great bottle of wine our server suggested. We consider... More

We had a great meal here in a wonderful atmosphere. They actually have a tv screen so that you can watch your meal being prepared if you so choose. I would strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone interested in great food and great service! Don't miss the pasta made with local chestnut flour...really special! The owner is very attentive.
