Despite the two strong recommendations, it has taken us 2 years to try this relatively new restaurant in the centre of Barga. We were not disappointed. We sat on the small terrace at the back of the restaurant. There is another on the street. The cottage cheese and spinach appetizer, warm foccacia and sparkling aperitif were lovely. A light calametti and polpe soup (special of the day) was delightful. Miaile with pear, cheese and a balsamic sauce was perfect. Capelletti of mozzarella in a pancetta and cheese sauce was also very special. A pinot from Collio and two coffees rounded off a delightful meal, which for 53 Euros was also excellent value for money. - Tim

Six of us ate, four adults and two children. Adults all had various delicious pasta dishes followed by steaks, veal and mixed grill. Mario served the biggest fillet steaks I have ever seen for only 8 euros. Kids also had steaks with side orders of fries and salad. All this was washed down with two bottles of house red and two bottles of water. Some of us finished off with perfect creme caramel and the kids devoured icecream with hot chocolate! For the two of us who could not make our minds up, Mario suggested we let chef Franco create something special and he did not disappoint with a medley of desserts being produced. Last but by no means least came the limoncello, ice cold from the freezer to aid digestion of our feast. The bill came to 130 euros and was well worth every cent. The atmosphere is relaxed in this family run business which is in our opinion a Garfagnana gem. Nora and Niall, N. Ireland - Nora

This osteria was recommended to us by our holiday hosts and at first sight of an enormous TV screen, I wondered if it would be an experience best forgotten. However, much to the delight of myself, husband and two sons, we were treated to an unforgettable experience. Our meal consisted of very tasty, spit roasted chickens, roasted vegetables and for dessert, freshly picked mountain blueberries. I was so excited and touched when Lorenzo announced with pride that the latter were available. Where in England would one be offered these and for less than £3 a huge portion? No it is not a swanky, sophisticated, over priced restaurant where the elite meet to eat and talk about nothing. This place was alive with real people, having real conversations, enjoying real food - the atmosphere of which one wishes one could bottle for use on cold, winter days. Our hosts were warm and friendly and the bill at the end came to less than £40 for all of us. We would most certainly return. - W bloo

How many times have we passed this place and not stopped. Well, we did today and it was a pleasant surprise. Very agreeable dining room and warm welcome. Tortellini with ragu were delicious (a bit salty if I am being very critical). Pork fillet in 4 cheeses was delicious. Sformato verdure lovely, roast potatoes a bit soggy. House wine quite drinkable. 45 eruos for two all up - Tim

Twelve of us all ordering pizza at once stretched the four-pizza oven, but then authentic pizza doesn`t come in batches of 12. And it was authentic as ever. Worth going out of your way for, and we don`t have to, whoohoo! Still not venturing back to the house white but the pinot was lovely. - Tim

We were surprised by how few other diners there were for supper mid-week in August. Not at all like the previous year. Credit crunch? Nevertheless, the food and service were up to the normal good standard and we enjoyed a very pleasant meal outside. Tortelli ragu and pappardelle chingiale were brilliant starters, as was `fritto misto` for the secondo. House wine (white) light and crisp. - Tim
