You could easily drive right through Borgo a Mozzano en-route to Barga or the Ponte Della Maddalena but set back from the main road is this little gem. We had the place to ourselves however this might have had something to do with Italy playing Belgium in the Europeans championships! Waiter was extremely helpful and friendly explaining the menu fully... More

Although the name of this restaurant suggest" the slaughterhouse" ( the location being a former meat producing area), we had a wonderful evening of beautiful octopus and additional seafood delicacies as well as a traditional dinner of daily beef/meat specials. We finally procured reservations (which we suggest) so you do not arrive disappointed. Enjoy the ride to arrive at this... More

We enjoyed a very good lunch. The service is very friendly and efficient. The food was very good. Fresh, tasty and very authentic. The atmosphere was nice, and it seems that many locals attend this restaurant.

My friends who live locally (and really do know where the good restaurants are) always bring me here when I visit them. And the place never lets us down. Service is efficient - almost to the point of being brusque - but the general ambience, and the food in particular, are of high quality. It is well worth a stroll... More

We ate here twice during our stay. The first time was part of a large wedding party and secondly as part of a smaller group. The staff were experienced, used to dealing with large and small groups, professional and worked very hard to serve us well on both occasions. The menu, which they happily translated into English for us, was... More

We stayed nearby and as a result we ate here a couple of times. Food was good and was served quickly (for Italy anyway), waiters spoke good English too. I was even accommodated when requesting a caprese salad starter that wasn't on the menu The panna cotta with caramel sauce is a must have from the dessert menu. Great value... More

We ate there twice. Once as part of our big wedding party where they managed to serve 70 of us with delicious food and also in a group of 16. The food was some of the best we had in Tuscany. Delicious Barrata with anchovies, bistecca steak with potatoes and some kind of spinach frittata. The waiting staff were super... More

we ate at this Osteria on two separate occasions and found both the food and welcome excellent. We liked the inclusion of local produce and friendly staff.

Look for a yellow ochre building just above a local car park, at the foot of a wooded valley stretching into the hills. From the terrace with its sun umbrellas and geraniums you can ignore the cars and enjoy the view of the ancient town church, chiming the quarter, and the hills behind. Service is friendly and prompt and the... More
