My wife and I chose to retreat from Venice, Florence and Rome, finding ourselves staying near Barga. We spent the day touring the area and happens upon this lovely wine bar. We sampled several cheeses, meats and some local wine. We chatted with the owner, Andrea who was incredibly friendly and even shared some of his pizza with us :)... More

Called in here for lunch on the first day of a week's holiday staying up the road in a lovely converted water mill in Filicaia. The place is well worth a visit, no English spoken or written menus but you easily get by with some pointing and pigeon italian!! We had what would probably best be called the tasting menu,... More

Me and my two friends had a wonderful early evening at this enoteca. We deeply regretted that we had to leave the place. We were served excellent wine with delicious small side-dishes and tasty cheese. Perfect for an apertivo, even better to stay on longer.

Went to this place for lunch and feel like this is not the cleanest place in Italy. Too much flies on the not completely covered food made us wonder what the hygiene is like in this place. The food itself was pretty good, but seeing flies on the food you eat from is not the best advertisement for a place.

We stopped by as we walked through the streets of Garfagnana. Fantastic deli/wine bar. The platters were massive, with a huge range of meat and cheese, and served with some lush fresh bread. The local wine was delicious! Definitely worth a visit!

After reading the great reviews, we took our 3 children (8 to 12 years) for an evening meal and although they didn't like all of the samples included in the 4 courses each with many different samples, we all left thoroughly stuffed. We were worred that it was only going to be cold meats but the first course was a... More

This isn't really a typical Italian restaurant were you can order pizza or pasta. It's more a shop which sells local ingredients and wines. In the middle of the shop there's a big table where guests can enjoy a tasting of local meat, cheese, vegetables, bread and cakes. It's not expensive and worth the try. The owner is very friendly...

A perfect way to try Garfanga's local dishes.. served as tastes.. Andre's mother and sister both made items that are part of the experience, in a setting that would be difficult to replicate.
