I was there for lunch with a group. We were learning about local foods and the slow food movement, which really is centered in the town. Our host had us taste a wide variety of local specialties. Not only was it a great meal, it was an education. I have so much more appreciation for eating local and for the... More

If you are in Tuscany make sure you visit Garfagnana and stop at Il Vecchio Mulino for some delicious food and wine. We had the tasting trays of all the high quality, fresh foods of Garfagnana. It was wonderful trying all of the local dishes. The owner Andrea Bertucci and his staff are friendly and you can see their passion... More

A wonderful little place, excellent for a very local experience. You sit there at a common large table together with other guests and get served whatever the place has prepared according to availability and season. Plates start coming to you with plenty samples of local products, oven baked bread and tasty cheeses, mushrooms, cold cuts, grains and so on. There... More

Patricia that owns Villa Bertagni Bed&Breakfast in Castelnuovo recommended us this place. The owner Andrea, and Marco, warmly greeted us who explained the different food options. Finally, we decided to have the degustation menu to have a taste of cheeses, hams and jams, all cured slowly. The food was incredible. I have to highlight the jam made with porcini and... More

Osteria Vecchio Mulino is "old Italy" little tasting of things more than a big meal, wonderful for lunch. They also have a good farmer's market and we ate after visiting that.

Try this place at least once. Not a typical restaurant but rather an [Italian] Tapas type place. Excellent food and wine and a friendly host.

A small but atmospheric locale with a good selection of local produce, specialising in slow food, personally selected by the owner Andrea (a real showman!). The tasting menu is worth the experience but not cheap. Great selection of prestigious wines by the glass. Unfortunately not open for dinner.

After seeing this restaurant in the Lonely Planet we decided to take a road trip from our base in Lucca and try it out. We were not disappointed! The staff and owner were all amazing. It has a great local atmosphere with communal tables. We had the delicious degustation with a bottle of the house red which was so good... More

We were recommended this place from our friend Michele that owns Santa Monica Restaurant in Viareggio. So heading to the Garfagnana just to have lunch at this Osteria, we drove 1.5hrs each way. We were very happy we did! This type of meat cuts, cheese and bruschetta lunch paired with great wines is right up our alley. Everything was of... More

Excellent food, friendly local people, shared dining table experience, eating local foods and wine of good quality. Shall imagine to be busier, in the height of summer but lovely relaxed dining experience, would definitely go again on my next visit!
