Went here last night with my family. Really enjoyed it and we had a great meal.

I called ahead to advise I was vegan and they made up eggless pasta with mushrooms and tomatoes. It was very nice.

We also ordered cooked artichokes, other pasta dishes and wine.

It is a simple family run restaurant with great food.

If you are vegan or have food allergies call ahead.

The restaurant Osteria al Ritrovo del Platano between Castelvecchio Pascoli and Gallicano is well known and very much appreciated as well by locals so that is not really anymore an insider Tip. Amazing grilled meat and great Pasta for example Tagliatelle with Funghi Porcini or the classical for this area Pappardelle al Sugo di Cinghiale White or Red, menas with or without tomatoes. Both ways a real tidbit.

It’s often said that if you eat where the locals eat you will usually not be disappointed. It is absolutely true of Osteria al Rittrovo del Platano. Situated not far from Barga in the province of Lucca, this restaurant gave us one of the best dining experiences we have ever had in Italy.
The food was good honest Italian food with quality local ingredients and amazing flavours, all served up with great personal, friendly family service by Mauro and his lovely daughter.
We went for lunch with Italian friends who live in Barga so they knew about this place. It is a well kept secret because it should be recommended in the Michelin Guide the food was so good!
What was more amazing was that we had the ‘menu del giorno’ (menu of the day) which amazingly included wine All for just 12 euros each.
The wine was actually amazingly good and I wouldn’t have been unhappy if we had paid a separate 20 euros per bottle it was so good.
Far be it from me to tell a restaurant where to set their price but even a modest hike to 15 euros for the would be acceptable in my book and help the restaurant to remain sustainable.
To sum up, top food in a lovely environment with amazing wine and a lovely family friendly atmosphere.
Would we go back - of course!

Delightful restaurant in the same building Giovanni Pascoli one of the greats in Italian literature would visit and converse with his friends under the banana tree, hence the name. The entire menu is YUMMY , we have eat there several times, a highlight for us is the Tiramisu which is creamy, not too sweet or sour and and totally delicious.

Every dish was carefully prepared and imaginatively created. Thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful. Definitely will go back.
