From past comments, found this restaurant over rated! Food is good but not exceptional. In comparison to other restaurants in the town, we found it expensive.

Il locale e stato fondato nel 1979 dove era aperto solo come bar, ma nel 1986 i coniugi Dini decisero di passare alla ristorazione mantenendo anche il bar, da li un grande successo gastronomico. Il locale si trova a Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, sotto l'Antico Oratorio di S. Antonio, un'antica Chiesa dell'400, sara possibile pranzare rimanendo sospesi nel passato. Il Ristorante "Il Baretto" gestito dai coniugi Dini, offre la possibilita, in estate, di cenare a lume di candela, sotto un glicine centenario, allietati dalla musica del piano-bar, per assaporare i piatti di una cucina tipica e genuina
