Whe we are over in italy for the summer we visit at least once a week. The set menu on a weekend is fantastic and good value for money. The animal walk through the woods is good for the kids, the La Bomba music / Caffè correcto routine still puts a smile on our faces after 5 years, and a stroll along the river after lunch is always a welcome bonus. Make sure you book in advance though at weekekends.

What was on the menu wasn't in fact what was available, but that didn't matter since what was available was really good, starting with a delicious tomato and paste bruschetta, I then had best lasagne ever, described as pasta al forno, with excellent house red wine, all followed with sitting by a river and lake just over the road.
We've come here before, always good.

We are staying near Barga and were recommended this place, and told to ignore its placement on TA. Reviews are good but not numerically high. So we went.

It's a quiet rural place about 10 minutes off the main road. Open areas all round the restaurant lead you from the car park to the bar. It's a lovely setting.

The menu is based in the chef and maitre d' s heads rather than on paper, and we think is altered according to their preference/whim! We started with wonderful bruschetta. Primo was home made grilled polenta with cheese or mushrooms, or fantastic ravioli. Had the lot shared round the table. The mains were a selection of grilled meats and veg. Washed down with house red- not anything amazing but went well with the strong grilled food flavours.

Friendly staff and beautifully cooked freshly made food in a nice setting, all at about €25 a head. What's not to love?

This is an amazing find in old Tuscany. Hidden in the country in a lovely setting enter the gardens and the smell of the wood burning ovens welcome you into the restaurant.
The food seemed to be an all inclusive with wines, and too many courses to mention at 25Euros each person.
Not to be missed is the La Bomba....a coffee drink, when delivered to your table the owner plays music. Everyone gets up to dance!

This is a great little restaurant & seems to be loved by the locals too, which is always a good sign. We've been a few times now sometimes just one or two people and sometimes a big group of 10 or so. In a big group you just order their large plates for groups which include Lamb, beef, rabbit, turkey and Italian sausages. All served with fires. Can't go wrong and wash it all down with some nice Italian wine as they have a good selection too. Love the place and you can walk around the area after. All in all really nice place, nice owners and staff and the food is tasty.
