“Nice food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

We went there with all our grown-up children and had a nice evening there.. The staff is very polite and efficient.. The food is good and tastty but do not expect highly gastro-like food. You are in the country far away in the hills of Tuscany and the food is good local food. The price is all-right a little on the high side. Sadly enough the restaurant had no view overlooking the valley.

“Delicious food, a tavern with an elegant touch.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

The owner and the cook certainly know what they are doing. The three of us stopped there last night while returning from a hike. We were welcomed even if we looked rough (not dressed for a restaurant). We sat outside for a drink, in the last bit of the 8 pm sun. We had our dinner inside, in the beautifully restored ground floor room, the walls showing neatly the bare stones (pietra a vista). We had a three course meal (with housewine) for 85 EUR. We ate fish (trout), pasta, and meat (tagliata) and dessets (an excellent crostata all'arancia). Everything was delicious. The portions perhaps a bit limited, especially considering there was no accompanying vegetables (contorno) to go with the main course. Very nice presentation of the dishes, and very welcoming service.

“HIGHLY RECCOMENDED”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

The owner has a fabulous knowledge of wine and a great selection, the food is delicious and all our freidns and guests who have been have LOVED iT, both for the "working day " menu and the A La Carte. The excellent lunch Menu for around €10, excluding wine has a very good selection to choose from you also find an a la carte dining which is best appreciated in the evening. Highly recommended are the Tagliatta of Beef with Grilled vegetables. All the game dishes are exceptional. The owner has an impressive list and knowledge of wines which are well priced. Cost of a la carte meal is approximately Euro 25, plus wine. Great for families, and freinds Closed on Tuesdays. It has a limited car park. Email pier.bonini65@gmail.com, Mobile # 329 98 50261

“Good food bad service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

It was a set lunch we had and it was exellent , however the aervice was very cold and without any happy faces serving. The owner could do with more effort with new customers and not only with regulors, and a smile !!!!! The waitress when asked for a coke , it sounded like she drop it from the ceiling.

“Fantastic food of Garfagnana”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

We went for lunch to Bonini after recommendation from our host. This place serves seriously good food, even though from the main road it looks like a pretty average bar. Don't get fooled and join locals for a great lunch or dinner. Homemade, fresh, delicious food. Service was fantastic too. We tried carpaccio and carne crudo (steak tartare) as entrees, fantastically fresh meat, meltingy soft, seasoned so well. Next we had maccheroni with ragu (in this region maccheroni is different pasta as otherwise known, it is maltagliati, or English rag pasta), and ravioli filled with polenta and cheese with wild boar ragu. Both were absolutely amazing. And for dessert we had the best tiramisu ever, homemade, not too much biscuit, dotted with chocolate coated coffee beans, it was a dream. Coffee amazing too. Definitely recommended.
