Enjoyed a starter of prosecco filled by 2 appetizers. But the steak topped with pecorino and pan seared pork tenderloins made the meal.

We were on holiday at the beginning of August and found this gem, wonderful food, great ambience and you could watch your food being cooked via a live webcam in the kitchen! Top marks.

We have only 10 days in Italy to discover the best restaurants. Scacciaguai did not disappoint! So grateful it was recommended to us. The flavor and quality of the food and the presentation were outstanding! We sat on the balcony, and enjoyed a nice, relaxing meal. The service was excellent as well. We will definitely go back!

We had the good fortune of staying in lovely Barga for a few weeks as our home base during our vacation in Tuscany. We frequented this restaurant a number of times, and it was consistently delicious. The menu has variety and the specials are constantly changing. The owner Ricardo is a great guy with a pleasant, welcoming demeanor. It offers... More
