Freshly made pasta and veal scallopini were both very nice. Service friendly and efficient. Atmosphere was a bit lacking.

We ate out for 5 nights at various eateries in Barga, this wins my vote for best. Perhaps it was just a fluke, but I would certainly seek it out on my next visit. Service was great, property was spotless, food was faultless, wine was delicious. Full marks from me, and thank you.

We sat for a while before being approached by a waiter and then one of our drinks didn't arrive however once we all had our drinks they were very much enjoyed in this lovely setting in the piazza.

We went there for lunch because we had a hankering for pizza. Italians do not eat pizza for lunch, so finding a place that served lunch pizzas is not easy. This is not fine dining, nor do they claim to be. Pizzas are 9 euros, which is very fair. They are traditional Italian, so if You're looking for the cheese... More

Both ourselves and another couple left after sitting for 15mins and not having been given a menu let along a drinks order. A busy night yes but very poor service and quite unwelcoming. Disappointed o say the least !

Perfect lunch on balcony overlooking valley. Couldn't have asked for better location. Excellent value, and strawberry risotto as good as I have had.

Family of 5, they were busy but lots of staff. Service was so slow, pizza only average - base hard on all 5 pizza's. Cost was average for a tourist spot.
