The dining room at Verdeluna is intimate, particularly midweek in December. We were the only diners and our host had opened the restaurant just for us. Rather than making us feel intimidated by this, we felt extremely welcome. The food was excellent, with a strong emphasis on seafood, which was bursting with sea flavours. My cozze (mussel) starter was tasty, but a little overcooked. My wife's sardine fishballs were excellent. We followed with the most sublime seafood pasta I have ever tasted: slightly spicy and coked to perfection. Mains were fish again, baked bream for me, swordfish steak for my wife. Once again, the fish was perfect. Mains were served with quite salty and only just warm french fries. The wine included in dinner was fine and our creme brulee was served with a dessert wine which complimented the dish perfectly. This is a quite unusual dining experience and great for a special occasion. Given the quality of food and the level of personal service we reckoned Verdeluna offered good value for money if you are looking for a 'full' four course meal as there is (understandably) no option to pick and choose a la carte.

Second visit confirmed the previous experience, though this time there were three other diners sharing the small dining room with us. The set price menu price had increased (again) to €28 - a sign of popularity perhaps or the rise in global food prices. Everything was delicious. The service gracious and attentive. This time we did try the ice cream and chestnut purée and it was divine.

After years of travelling away from Barga for good food, recently, the centre of town has been transformed and Verdeluna is certainly part of that transformation. Everything was wonderfully cooked - polpette di sarde beautifully subtle, warm seafood salad with a Caesar sauce packed with flavours, seafood and vegetariana lasagna were so refined and delicate (the vegetarian the biggest hit), and then scaloppine di pollo and swordfish steak in a divine emulsion of olive oil, lemon and oregano. There was pudding included in the set 24 euros but we resisted. The white wine also included was light and crisp. Be ready for the small dining room, but it is tastefully done and very welcoming. Definitely will be a favourite for the future. Booking ahead is a must. They only open mid-week if you book; so turning up on spec is high risk.
