Fairly expensive compared to the meals we have had elsewhere, but still worth it if you like something a bit different. Italian cuisine with a bit of twist and you can watch the chef on a plasma screen preparing your meal. Friendly service and I would go for the specials as the waiter takes his time to explain them in very precise english. The chocolate souffle desert and the semi fredo were to die for. Our meal came to around 65 euros for two people, for three courses including wine and water. So a little more than we have been paying but still well worth it.

Our second visit and again we were delighted. Warm welcome, really nice dining room (we were inside this time because Autumn is arriving). Good table setting. Fish lasagne was delightful; as was Sushi to start. Steak with pistachio crust on rocket was novel but delicious. Pork fillet with pear and cheese sauce was also delicious. The only negative, our choice because we like to go local, was the white wine from Gallicano. Probably best avoided… 58 Euros including coffee. Really good value.

Despite the two strong recommendations, it has taken us 2 years to try this relatively new restaurant in the centre of Barga. We were not disappointed. We sat on the small terrace at the back of the restaurant. There is another on the street. The cottage cheese and spinach appetizer, warm foccacia and sparkling aperitif were lovely. A light calametti and polpe soup (special of the day) was delightful. Miaile with pear, cheese and a balsamic sauce was perfect. Capelletti of mozzarella in a pancetta and cheese sauce was also very special. A pinot from Collio and two coffees rounded off a delightful meal, which for 53 Euros was also excellent value for money.
