As usual this charming little restaurant doesn’t disappoint! I’ve been coming here often since it opened and have never left disappointed. The staff are lovely. The food is fantastic and the chef Camilla deserves all the plaudits.

A must visit place when in Barga. Barga has many god restaurants however this remains our favourite. The food is to die for - great pasta dishes and pork. A real traditional Italian restaurant.

Reached by a steep climb up narrow curving roads, which little Fiat 500's also tackle. Good service. nice Italian meal. Closed about 11pm. Go back down the same main pathway as an alternative darkly-lit route is very steep and slippy.
