Another new restaurant for the Camporgiano area! And another really good one at that! The restaurant is part of a new 'holiday village' that's being developed in a beautiful spot in the hills between Camporgiano and Vitoio. The restaurant is bright and airy, with a large panoramic terrace. The 10 euro weekday lunch menu has all the classic Garfagnana dishes. We tried the zuppa di farro, pasta ragu, roast beef and a fresh fruit and local cheese plate. Everything was truly excellent. There was an impressive wine list but were more than happy with a very good house red. The service was marvellous and the chef even came out to ask if we'd enjoyed our meal. A nice touch, I thought. We plan to return to try the special fish menu which is available on Friday evenings. I'll report back! - Luisa

We first went here a few weeks ago for a birthday lunch. The food was really good and the service was excellent. We recommended it to other friends who have since tried it and agree that it is an exceptional place. We went again for lunch today and thoroughly enjoyed the risotto and cannelloni for our first courses and everyone had the veal Valdostana for mains. Absolutely delicious! Again, the service was excellent and the price, 10 euros per person including wine, was amazing. - Luisa

Great little place recently opened in the main piazza of Camporgiano. Does a 10 euro lunch menu Tues-Sat. We thoroughly enjoyed the pasta course, the veal in mushroom sauce was really tasty and the house red wine was very good. We also ordered a mushroom pizza, cooked in the traditional pizza oven. It was excellent. The service was friendly and the atmosphere most welcoming. We're delighted to have such a nice new place in our area. - Luisa

This elegant restaurant lives up to its brilliant reviews.Exquisite food and wine, beautiful surroundings, excellent service; we couldn't have asked for more. The vin santo reduction with the liver paté was incredible and the tortellini was light and creamy. The pork and the duck for our second course were both complete perfection and the chantilly cream dessert with almond and orange crisps was an utter joy. After an enjoyable discussion with the very charming Fabio, the Lucchesi wine we chose, Altair, was delicious. For a menu so surely heading towards a Michelin star or two, the bill was also most palatable. Around 70 euro for two, including 3 courses, wine and coffee. - Luisa

Had a bad experience at this restaurant recently. Food was OK and waitress service good but when checking the bill we noticed that we had been over-charged by 10 euros. The owner was quite ungracious and without apology just put a 10 euro note on the bar and walked away. We won't be eating there again! - Luisa

This is my favourite restaurant in the area for the quality of its food, the friendliness of the owners and the amazing views from the dining terrace. The menu changes every day but we recently ate a tasty antipasti of crostini with fresh tomatoes and mushrooms (specially put together for my vegetarian guest), farro with mushrooms, home made maccheroni with ragu, and then roasted pork with sauted artichokes and fried potatoes, again home made, not frozen! The dessert was a mixture of bite-size pieces of a nutty tart and a ricotta cake, accompanied by an excellent dessert wine. The wine was a very drinkable house wine. The bill came to just under 25 euros for both of us. Marvellous! Need to point out that it`s not open for dinner on week nights during the winter months. - Luisa
