Going to Aristo and meeting Aristo are a must if you are in Barga. He's down-to-earth and no-nonsense, and he wants you to enjoy what he gives you, whether it's a cafe or a meal. We sat down for a coffee with some friends but...More

Ok so we fancied going here after reading some good reviews. The owner makes the place, he really does. Nice, friendly but I think his lack of English or my lack of Italian?? We ordered the selection of cold meats and cheese for our starters...More

A glass of red for €1.50! Peroni on tap for €4. Nice meats and cheeses. Great setting. And what a character the owner is!

As you can see in the pictures this is a typical place, not fancy at all, plastic plates etc, so it compensates in atmosphere and quality of food and kind service.

Positives: Good quality food and wine generally. Flamboyant owner is an interesting presence. Popular with multilingual tourists. Negatives: Food served in ghastly landfill-destined plastic plates and with plastic cutlery (made worse by being quite out of sync with the local culinary culture) - I was...More

We stumbled upon da Aristo when discovering the beautiful hilltop town of Barga. We enjoyed our platter of local meats and cheeses while sipping on chestnut beer in this lovely piazza while being serenaded by a local musician. We were served by a delightful young...More

If you haven't had a change to experience Da Aristo, drop everything and do it. Do it now! We love this place. It's an unassuming little place that exudes small town Italy. Having ancestral ties to Barga, we feel those ties strongly here watching the...More

Some might call it a “hole in the wall” but we decided that “hidden treasure” was a better description. This tiny bar is tucked away within the original city walls of Barga and a must-stop on Sunday evening when the local musicians are playing. We...More
