Could not fault the service and the host was very nice. The food was OK but not really restaurant quality.

An amazing dining experience! Despite being situated inside part of a big complex which was a castle, this is a really tiny restaurant, seating only about 12 diners - it's like having been invited to dinner at the kitchen table. Although it's like an extension of home cooking, the food is terrific and innovative. We started with two variations of... More

We had possibly the best pasta of our trip here, a simple but absolutely delicious fresh tagliatelle with meat sauce. I can't understand the other reviews about being ripped off, we felt as though we had underpaid as we paid €10 each for a plate of pasta, lots of wine and a large bottle of water. The owner was very... More

From tagliatelle through to the panna cotta by way of pork chop, sausage and stuffed courgette it was all delicious. The nicest surprise being the sprouts yes... More

Wonderful little street restaurant! We discovered this gem while on holiday, and kept coming back almost every day for at least one meal. The chef (Massimo) offers a daily menu where you can choose a starter, a main course and a condiment. The menu changes every day, so there is always something new to try out. The pasta is home...

I ate at this restaurant because it looked inviting and the girl outside said the food was very very good (she must have been the daughter). I agree with whitekiss about the place, which is ok however the wife who cooks is very sour, the owner is pleasant enough but when I came to pay the bill I was charged... More

Tucked away in the Italian Alps, this small restaurant fits right in with the town of Castiglione de Garfagnana. Not on many tourest maps, this place feels untouched with a slow pace of life. Grab some great food and enjoy the ambiance at this tiny little place. You will find yourself the only non-Italian around surrounded by friendly locals. The... More
