This is an ideal venue for lunching and dining, whether as a couple or part of a larger group; also ideal for special occasions and events. The lunch menu during the week is fantastic value for money; superb food including water, wine and coffee - all for 10euros! The location is easily accessible and with ample parking. The restaurant itself... More

Lunch at Il Bugno - 10 Euros for 2 courses, wine, water and coffee would be sufficient but the "floor show" of staff and other diners is not to be missed. Unfortunately this year (2016) it seems to be closed Mondays and Tuesdays.

The very best of local food served by enthusiastic and welcoming staff. Each time we visit this part of Italy, we make point of including a number of visits to Il Bugno. This restuarant cannot be beaten for quality, service and value for money. A large dining area lends itself more to family get-togethers rather than intimate candlelit dinners. Kids... More

Brilliant food served by fantastic cheerful staff who always remember their clients. A great value lunch including coffee and wine is only 10 euros. This is a brilliant place to hold a party or a large event as the place is huge. So it is not suitable for intimate dining but much more appropriate for a big party or large... More

We had the 10€ lunch here today and to say we were disappointed is an understatement! We are fortunate enough to live in Barga and occasionally like to "treat" ourselves to a 'workman's lunch' which are on offer at many of the restaurants in the area. Maybe we arrived on a bad day? ... our primi piatti of penne with... More

Don't go to this restaurant for a romantic lunch or dinner. This is a noisy, friendly, lovely Garfagnese restaurant where locals go for excellent food at an extremely reasonable price. Family run and just great fun.

I went to this restaurant back in August 2014 when I was on holiday with my girlfriend and her family. Her family have been going to Il Bugno their whole life when they visit Italy and I can see why. The front of house staff are extremely nice and very welcoming. Since it is run by a family it is... More

We had a number of lunches and dinners at Il Bugno last week. It's a big place, at the Northern end of Fornaci village, with a large car park. It's very busy at lunch times because of the set-price workers' lunches, it's a bit quitter during the evenings. It's very friendly; the waiting-on staff are great, if sometimes a bit... More
