Andrea's little osteria in Castelnuovo is a fantastic place for lunch. I have been there several times over the years and the quality of the food and the wine is excellent. Especially his dishes with Porcini are very nice, but also the selection of sausages is brilliant. This day we had the selection of everything which started with a salat... More

Our group of eight friends, scattered around the globe, met in northern Tuscany to rent a villa near Fivizzano. We visited a number of highly rated restaurants in the area, but our meal at Osteria Vecchio Mulino was hands down one of the highlights of our trip. Certainly our day in Catelnuovo di Garfagnana was the best day of our... More

We got this place recommended and it was definitely worth the trip! At first sight, the restaurant looks quite simple, but this place doesn't disappoint. The host Andrea made us feel like home, and it was such a great experience! We got a large plate of mixed cheeses and cold cuts followed by a heavenly union of freshly picked rasberries... More

We arrived late last Thursday night and ate a quick bite here. The host, Andrea, makes you feel at home as he is affable, attentive and knowledgable and we enjoyed a large plate of various cheeses together with a beer and a coffee. He has a wonderful wine collection too. I have no hesitation recommending this restaurant.

A group of us (8) had a gourmet lunch here and had a wonderful time with Andrea. He gave us full attention and the food, cheese and wine he presented was awesome. Then he gave us an insight into cutting and tasting prosciutto as well as cutting the huge (250g) mortedella. What a great day and a outstanding experience.

Stopped in for lunch and had a great authentic Italian experience. We enjoyed a variety of meats and cheeses with a bottle of house wine. Tiny place but it sure is popular! We told the staff to bring us what they recommended and we were very happy with the food they provided. Charming atmosphere!

We all ordered a different small dish, everything was of superb quality and beautifully but simply presented. The wine was great. The decor was fascinating, so many bottles both for show and for sale. A lovely experience.
