Lovely restaurant with the best gazpacho I ever had! Nice wine selection. Welcoming service. Located in a great corner of Barga.

We have rented a house in the mountains less than 10 km from Barga. We visited Barga for an evening walk and then decided to stay for dinner. But the two first places we went were to our surprise closed even according to the signs on the doors was supposed to be open. We walked just a few minutes and found this place in a small, but cozy square. A few people sat at the nicely set tables. We decided to try it. Totally worth it. It seemed as a simple card. Not that many dishes to choose between, but Oh my it was good. I went for a spaghetti dish as prime and then sirloin as second. My wife had the cold tomato soup. For desert chocolate in different interpretations. The sizes of the dishes are not large, not small, but just right. It’s not the cheapest place you can find, but it is worth a visit. We were 4 adults, 3 dishes each plus water, coffee and a few glasses of wine: EUR 205. Good well prepared food. Good service. You get the food at the same time. Good atmosphere to sit and enjoy the food slowly and with nice wines. However I don’t think this restaurant or menu is for smaller children. It is for a bit more mature audience.

Small but excellent menu, exqisitely cooked, prepared and presented. Good wine list. These people are truly professionals and you can tell the difference. Try the Fassona tartare if you like raw beef, or the rainbow trout if you don’t. Wonderful

We went to Barga on a sunny winter Sunday & happened on the Locanda di Mezzo by chance for lunch... from the outside it's quite unpretentious.

We were shown to a smallish room behind the bar with a high ceiling & colourful decor on the stone walls. There was a half level at the back with a few raised tables.

The chefs here are clearly quite passionate about flavour.

To start we had

1) smoked trout, potato foam & chestnut
2) scallop, asparagus & sour cream

Mains were

1) Slow cooked pigeon, beet, grated horseradish, apple
2) Pan cooked quail, leek, potato

Desserts were

1) Vanilla cream, marinated rhubarb, iced tomato (DELICIOUS)
2) Tiramisu, pumpkin, caramelised caper

Starters were €8, mains €15 & desserts €6.

All in all, heavenly.
