Best meal in Italy

We stayed in Barga for one night while driving through Italy, and it turned out to be our best night on the trip. It was November, and it was quiet and cold.

Excellent food though slightly more expensive. Less rustic than most local establishments. House wine is very good indeed. You will not be disappointed.

Scacciaguai is the kind of place we hoped we would find in Italy. The restaurant itself is just a great place to spend an evening. The food is outstanding. The staff are pleasant and they know their wines, pairings etc. very well. We went back their more than once during our visit to Barga.

We visited with our 10month old daughter, they were very accommodating and happy to make an off menu meal for her. The food was outstanding. Decor much better inside than the outside would suggest!

My friend had a truffle steak that he really enjoyed and I loved the truffle pasta. Staff was extremely friendly and even gave us complimentary limoncello as we hung out in the bar area waiting for friends. Highly recommend this place!

We were only looking for a light lunch when we stumbled across Scacciaguai, but after being welcomed in by the owner and shown the menu it didn't take much to keep us there for a couple of hours. The wine was delicious, the prawn risotto was amongst the best I've had and the service was second to none. Towards the... More

Ricardo and owner of the restaurant advised us on dinner choices- we were not dissatisfied. In fact this restaurant exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed the truffled fresh pasta, and the chestnut pasta.The recommended red wine and filet steak with truffles was exceptional as were the Rosemary pot potatoes and roasted onions. Don't miss the incredibly delicious chocolate soufflé. Extremely reasonable... More
