Next to the hermitage and below Calomini lies the restaurant. It also has rooms. Limited menu but lovely food and always fresh.

“Surrounded by nature and friendliness”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2012

At the Antica Trattoria di Calomini one can find a unique place of quietness and beauty. The views are marvelous, the rooms and the surrounding are nicely done and the restaurant is one of the best we tried in Italy! We had a wonderful time and will definitely come back. This place is also nice for smaller groups up to 10-14 persons.

“If you find it, you are in for a treat!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2010

Driving on an unmarked road toward the Cave of the Wind, You will find another unmarked road to the Hermitage in the Rocks (dug out of the mountain by monks in the 8th century). If you take this tiny winding road, up, up, up, you will find L'antica Trattoria dell'Eremita. It is set in complete isolation with a splendid view of the Garfagnana area.

The trattoria is run by a local family with good, simple local dishes from the area, that focus on Beef and Trout. Highlights include a hearty, warming Minestra di Farro, or the site specific Spaghetti of the monks, a spaghetti with spicy trout meat balls.

Meals are ridiculously reasonable, with firsts and seconds costing only euro 5.50 each, and come with free, deliciously fresh water served in a ceramic monks pitcher.

This is a discovery that you will be glad you made when you are exploring an area that is still undiscovered by the touristic crowds.
