The Authentic Slow Food Gargagnana Lunch

4 of us had the "degustazione" menu for lunch at Vechhio Mulino today. Lovely bruschette with powerfully tasting toppings - funghi, smoked trout, truffle, and pesto; a plate of selected local cold meats; another with local cheeses and mamellate; and a delicious farro salad. Then a slice of one of... read more

Stunning tasting session for the adults. Kids were harder to please but they put up with us oldies treating ourselves. Will go again for this understated resto-deli. You WILL buy something from the alimentare and I hope it tastes as good back home as it does here. Tasting session = taste sensation.

We own a house in this area and we were really looking forward to trying out this restaurant. I cannot say how disappointed I am not to be writing a really enthusiastic review. First of all, the good stuff. Vecchio Mulino is a wonderfully charming restaurant, which draws you in from quite a busy street corner. The staff are all... More

This place is magical. If you'd come in Tuscany you've to go to eat at Vecchio Mulino. The meal is gorgeous, the owner so professional and the waitress very nice. Their products have a very high quality and come from every part of Italy. We tried the tasting menu. It started with a savory pie and some hulled wheat and... More

A visit to Andrea Bertucci's restaurant, Vecchio Mulino, is a must! He doesn't serve pizza or pasta, but he'll pamper you with the most delicious local specialties and fantastic local wines. The service is warm and welcoming and the restaurant is stuffed with wine, oils, herbs and meat hanging from the ceiling. It doesn't get any more authentic than that!... More

This is a wonderful place to go and taste all the wonders of the Garfagnana. Andrea the owner is very welcoming and friendly. We had the tasting platter and it was a great experience. Be ready to stay awhile!
