Pictures of this restaurant (1)Cantine Bernadini, Lucca -
Once we had found the unobtrusive entrance, we were wowed by the decor and atmosphere. The staff were very attentive and knew their products really well. The carciofi e ricotta tortelli in ragu di anatra e brunoise di verdure were very delicate, though a little on the tepid side. Petali di baccala su crema di cavolo fiore was delicious. Anatra in sesame crust was quite fine, but the whole onion in its skin, though very tasty, was a bit odd. Baccala con pomodoro e porri was perfectly cooked. A Luchese wine for 8 Euros rounded it off nicely. 63 Euros complete for two. - Tim

This relatively new establishment inside the walls of Lucca is a big find - in two ways - it is tucked away off all the main streets and it is a treasure. Opened in May 2008 by one of the Bernadini family, Massimo, the vaults below the Palazzo used to be a night club. Now they are a beautifully restored temple to fine food, wine and olive oil from the region. - Admin

Pictures of this restaurant (2)Verdeluna, Barga -
After years of travelling away from Barga for good food, recently, the centre of town has been transformed and Verdeluna is certainly part of that transformation. Everything was wonderfully cooked - polpette di sarde beautifully subtle, warm seafood salad with a Caesar sauce packed with flavours, seafood and vegetariana lasagna were so refined and delicate (the vegetarian the biggest hit), and then scaloppine di pollo and swordfish steak in a divine emulsion of olive oil, lemon and oregano. There was pudding included in the set 24 euros but we resisted. The white wine also included was light and crisp. Be ready for the small dining room, but it is tastefully done and very welcoming. Definitely will be a favourite for the future. Booking ahead is a must. They only open mid-week if you book; so turning up on spec is high risk. - Tim

Had the menu turistico today - two courses, vegetable, wine, water and coffee for 10 Euros a head. Brilliant. Hard to know how they manage to make a profit. Fusilli al chingiale was near perfect. Pork fillet delicious; Polpette also delicious. Understandably the place was teeming with people - workers, travellers, locals, etc. Now I understand why they provide so much parking! Service very efficient. Nice airy dining room. Wine (white firmo) was OK, but for what it was very drinkable. Overall great Value. - Tim

Forced to eat here by the November shut down for holidays of many other local establishments, we were very pleasantly surprised. The service was very welcoming. The dining room very pleasant and the food excellent. The cook, Camilla Gianotti, is also the mural artist. The house wine from cantine mini of Montecarlo was very good. - Tim

Many of my friends class this as one of their favourite restaurants. I don`t understand as I have tried it five times and each time I have found it worse than the last Inedible steak once. Dried out melanzane complete with burned toothpicks another time. I shall not return - TinTuscany
