We we're sitting on a cosy square. Carpaccio was delicious, Bread was good, the cold one wasn't so special. Main dish pizza en beef slices from the grill. We have visited Italy for two weeks and this was the best food so far.

We find ourselves going back again and again. Luca, the owner is always attentive, the food is wonderful, wine selection is varied and we feel almost at home here. Wonderful experience, great food and good value for money. What else can one want ?

We wanted to eat Porcini while in the Garfagnana area and this is definitely the place. The porcini only started to come out of the ground the last couple of days, so we were fortunate along with many locals to savor them. We had crostini,...More

The kids wanted pizza. So we booked here but what a surprise. Tables were set across the road, outside in the courtyard of the theatre and overlooking the river. Candlelight made it rather beautiful. The children devoured top notch carpaccio, I had the best tomato...More
