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

My wife and I ate at Scacciaguai last week for about the fifth time over the last three years, we go there every time we stay in the area. 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

For Barga, it is one of the high-end restaurants. Comparing to the few other restaurants we tried there, it looks a bit more posh and refined. So, be prepared to paid a bit more. But, it is worth it. The food and the wine that was recommended to us were excellent. The staff was friendly and helpful. The concept of... More

I must disagree with previous reviews most strongly.My wife and I visited the restaurant following the glowing reviews.We ordered Florentine steak between us and when it came it was so tough that one could not cut through it with a knife far less chew it. We complained to the manager and despite not paying for the steak it ruined our... More

The hotel recommended this restaurant so was a little sceptic at first but willing to give it a try. It isn't easy to find but was I glad I did. After the family with the screaming kid moved on and more adults came in the restaurant took on a very nice atmosphere. The food was incredible and to paraphrase some... More

Four of us had a great meal, including Florentine steak and a fish dish. You can watch your food being prepared on a TV screen. The chocolate desserts were fabulous!

So my title says it all. I had the BEST steak of my life at Scacciaguai. It was so good. I got the filet wrapped in lard. It was sooo good. (Did I already say that?) Go get one! In addition to the great steak, we had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. The staff was very friendly, and the... More

You get the best of both worlds here, atmosphere and fine food! I love to decor and feel of this place, and the food is done with flair and so good! Try the ravioli, it is hand made and so delicious. This is a great place to get a meal in a unique atmosphere.

We stay at the Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco Resort & Spa and just wanted to grab some nice food on our last night in Italy. I read some recommendations for restaurants in Barga before we went there. After a short hike through town we stopped at... More
