Pictures of this restaurant (2)Verdeluna, Barga -
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. - Tim

Had the menu turistico today - two courses, vegetable, wine, water and coffee for 10 Euros a head. Brilliant. Hard to know how they manage to make a profit. Fusilli al chingiale was near perfect. Pork fillet delicious; Polpette also delicious. Understandably the place was teeming with people - workers, travellers, locals, etc. Now I understand why they provide so much parking! Service very efficient. Nice airy dining room. Wine (white firmo) was OK, but for what it was very drinkable. Overall great Value. - Tim

Forced to eat here by the November shut down for holidays of many other local establishments, we were very pleasantly surprised. The service was very welcoming. The dining room very pleasant and the food excellent. The cook, Camilla Gianotti, is also the mural artist. The house wine from cantine mini of Montecarlo was very good. - Tim

In the summer, eating out on the balcony is very pleasant. Hardly a view, but in the open. But that was then; and now it is Autumn. Inside the atmosphere is a bit dreary somehow. I cannot quite put my finger on it. But cloth napkins was a plus, something I appreciate. The fritto misto was lovely, as were the tortelli with ragu. House wine (bianco firmo) is very nice (€4 a half litre). But three dishes between two, plus wine, water and coffee was €33, which felt a bit steep. - Tim

Our second visit and again we were delighted. Warm welcome, really nice dining room (we were inside this time because Autumn is arriving). Good table setting. Fish lasagne was delightful; as was Sushi to start. Steak with pistachio crust on rocket was novel but delicious. Pork fillet with pear and cheese sauce was also delicious. The only negative, our choice because we like to go local, was the white wine from Gallicano. Probably best avoided… 58 Euros including coffee. Really good value. - Tim

Not one of the more famous names, and a bit off the tourist trail, but the best ice cream by a country mile. The cioccolata was just brilliant. Other flavours also amazing. - Tim
