Roberto really looked after us. I started with Carpaccio Di tonno con olio, pomodorini e basilico (tuna with cherry tomatoes basil and oil). I was concerned about it being too much but the tuna was wafer thin and melted in your mouth and when my raviol di ricotta e spinaci al burro e salvia (ravioli in sage butter) came, I... More

Although the menu rarely changes in this beautiful top floor establishment, each dish is really a step above. It may be a little pricier than some, but the quality of the food and the execution is worth it.

We last ate in this restaurant 2years ago and the standard is still very high. Roberto is very proud of his wines so let him advise you what to drink with your meal. Food excellent and service friendly.

Roberto the owner is very friendly and will recommend excellent wines at reasonable prices. Food is very good. You can chose from a set menu but recommend trying from main menu as well.

We had the Risotto, Ragu, Duck and Chicken and really enjoyed all of it. The owner was very friendly and helpful, made recommendations and went out of his way to make sure we were happy and comfortable. A warm, friendly atmosphere!

There are two parts to the restaurant - a basic pizza bar on one side and a fairly upmarket restaurant upstairs on the other. Both are excellent - the pizzas are top quality and the service is very quick. Sat outside it is the perfect spot to see everyone as it has a busy location in the "newer" part of... More

Visited the Alpino bar in Barga on loads of occasions during my stay in the town. In the morning and early afternoon they serve the most wonderful pastries with a range of coffee, they have a bar and an ice cream cart. It's a fab place to meet people as its right in the centre of the town and it's... More

Simple food, well cooked and presented but highlight was meeting and talking to Roberto even with his halting English. His enthusiasm shone through, he kept bringing us little extras higgling the local cuisine, the local cheeses with honey was a delight! He gave us an introduction to a friend of his who has his own vineyard in Montalcino, our next... More

We walked in off the street to dine at Alpino Ristorante (2nd floor). We did not research, read any reviews or book prior reservations but our dining experience turned out wonderful! Very pretty dining room with nice white tablecloths, food was outstanding simple fare with reasonable prices. We visited Barga in October so most of the other diners were local... More

Description
The restaurant is noted for its excellent wine list and wonderful local and Tuscan dishes. Wine is a passion here - the cantina holds delights from both Tuscany (including a good selection of the so-called 'Super-Tuscans'). Great care has been taken in adapting the wine list to match whatever dishes happen to be in season, and you will find recommendations to match each course of your meal.Local funghi (mushrooms) in season, crostini Toscani after an old family recipe and good salami, home-made pasta (tortelli, ravioli, fettucine), gnocchi, zuppa Toscana and a good choice of main dishes. All dishes can be paired with a recommendation from the excellent wine cellar - one that has been growing for over forty years and is constantly changing and being added to. The Restaurant joins the program and events of "Vetrina Toscana a tavola"
