Dinner in this restaurant was recommended by hotel staff. It was great suggestion. We had meat mix for entree , cabbage soup and two type of pasta and veal for main. We were so full, that couldn't find any space for desert. All dishes were spot on delicious, past was melted in mouth. Same about veal meat.

We drove by the restaurant various times and decided to stop one evening. What a treat! Truly marvelous hosts. They let us in early at 18:30 as they had not officially opened for the evening (19:00). The bread with tomato was fresh and earthy. We had the minestrone and bean soup to star and loved them. I had the duck... More

Famous amongst the locals this place is a must. Need to book to secure a table. Exceptional service from the staff makes you feel at home. Try the filo pastry cheese and truffle cream appetiser. Exceptional. If ordering the beef fillet note price is per 100g. This is a place for the foodies. A gastronomical experience.

We had been recommended to go here and weren't disappointed. Started with the entree of Puff pasty, cheese filling and truffle cream. Spoons were licked! The rest of the menu provided many rich and hearty options, with delicious homemade pasta and the prosciutto wrapped pork being the most succulent pork crackling tasting yummy dish - we definitely overdid our ordering-...

We were 10 from Norway and enjoyed the hospitality, and the food of this dedicated team. They have very good solutions also for people with gluten-related problems. I have enclosed this restaurant in my short list of preferred places!

We were fortunate to be here for the porcini mushroom season. They were served raw with olive oil, baked and fried with corn flour, all outstanding. Seconds were a variety of traditional pastas all with local ingredients. Outstanding selection of local wines wth a very helpful staff to help you select them. If I the area, a must!

We had a party of 26 at this restaurant and having met the chef and his daughter Beatrice who spoke pretty good English we chose a meal that was beyond our wildest expectations! The food just kept coming and each course was as good as the previous one. (we ended up with 8 courses!) I can't praise the chef and... More

Lovely little restaurant in a unusual location on a main road. Its nice to sit outside but quite noisy. We were there for lunch and it was very busy. Food was excellent and service good.

We ate here last night after promising ourselves for years to visit, we didn't have a reservation but the staff quickly found us a table. Our waitress for the evening was Beatrice who was absolutely charming, her English was good and she described the menu to us perfectly. We had the Garfagnana cold meats selection between us for starter and... More
