“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

Our family of six adults stayed in Montemagno for 10 days at the end of June, and we visited this restaurant three times. On each occasion we were welcomed with a glass of prosecco each and a good basket of bread for the table.
The mixed antipasta was huge - enough for at least 3 people. Antipasta and pasta dishes were all cooked freshly and were all very tasty. There was a good selection of main courses. The service was usually swift and friendly, and the prices were very reasonable.
Well worth a visit if you are in the area or travelling from Lucca to Camaoire.

“A true hidden gem, hard to find but REALLY worth it! Best ever food in Toscana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2011

Take care when you let your GPS guide you... The restaurant is NOT in Camaiore (where there is a street with same name) but in Montemagno at some 6 to 8 kms away.

To go there you have to follow a small mountain road from Viereggio but belive me (I've been there twice already) it is ABSOLUTELY worth the trip, even if you have to rent a car just to go there.

Restaurant belongs to 2 brothers, 1 taking care of guests and the other one in kitchen. The only negative point, for people that don't understand a bit of Italian is the lack of menu - they explain you what they have as fresh food every day. They welcomes you with a free glass of prosecco (the italian champain).

The best way to do is to order a degustation of starters to share between the party (at 2 we had once 7 dishes and the other one 8!) which are all from very good to simply fabulous. Then we ordered some main dishes with side dishes (in Italy you always have to order the 'contorni' separately) to share.

We let the owner recommend s a ery good wine to go with the meal and he serves us a (really) great red wine from Toscana... at 10 € a bottle! (Yes, you read well TEN EURO)

After a good coffee (my favorite is "expresso doppio machiato") the owner offred us a grappa made by himself.

For all (2 persons, prosecco glass, 13 shared dishes in total, coffee, grappa, 2 bottles of wine and 2 bottles of water) we had to pay... 71.60 € - less than 36 € per personn. This was more a gift than a bill (and last year we paid even 2 euro less for a similar experience).

Restaurant is full of locals every days (closed on tuesday), very few foreigners (you have to find the place). Outside of sumer season, outside of week-end, there is easyly 40 to 60 customers. It is highly recommended to reserve a table (and you have to arrive before 10PM, preferably around 9PM)

I'm going in Italy since around 38 years and I've never had such a fantastic meal for that price. I'm going now twice a year for work in Viareggio and strongly intend to go there at least once every time.
