Have been going to this restaurant for years. Would really recommend their homemade pasta and the Scallopina Valdostana - its making my mouth water just thinking about it. Would highly recommend.

L’altana is a traditional Italian trattoria in Barga. The truffle pasta was amazing, while risotto was good but not to the same standard. The atmosphere is pleasant, and it is recommended when in the area.

Delicious homemade dinners made by family in a small restaurant. We ordered way too much food, but we couldn’t stop eating because it was so delicious. It is like experiencing dinner in an Italian home.

Our favourite restaurant in Barga. The homemade maccheroni (flat squares i.e. Tuscan style) with truffle sauce is outstanding, as it is with their ragu. The ricotta and spinach ravioli is also superb, as is their polenta (best for me with the ragu, too rich for...More
