Il Triti was recommended to us by the owners of our hotel Villa Bertagni, which is not far away from Castelnuovo. We had to drive up and down the road to figure out the closest place to park which was the free lot near the supermarket. It's not right in the heart of the old town of Castelnuovo but we went for a walk through town after dinner that was short and sweet. After a short walk from the car we were seated immediately as at most places in Italy. Throughout the dinner there were family and friends of the owner/waiter/cook(?) coming in and sitting at a large table to eat and chat, which made the restaurant feel very cozy and homey. My wife ranked the food as tied for the best she had in Italy over two weeks. She ordered the minestrone which she called the best soup she's ever tasted and a tagliollini with ragu, and I ordered gnocchi with a Gorgonzola sauce followed by fried lamb chops with roasted potatoes. All fantastic. If you're in Castelnuovo and you can't get someone's mother to cook you dinner in one of the towns of the Garfagnana (or even if you can!) then this is some of the best food you'll find.
