Whilst visiting the Alpi Appuani looking for the house that was Eric Newby's "Small Place in Italy " we had a pleasant lunch in Il Faro. The Restaurant was large and even on a Wednesday lunch time quite busy. The service was excellent and the tourist menu included local specialities and an excellent local vermentino.

I have been coming to this restaurant for over 10 years and never been disappointed. In the summer months the outdoor seating is very pleasant and on some nights they have live music too. They have a dedicated chargrill kitchen (giant Barbeque!) outside and on view to all the customers and the meat they serve is very good and tasty.... More

nice family restaurant with fireplace in the winter and oper terrace in the summer. good food and wine with predictable prices (I suggest you simply choose either one of the two fixed price menus) and excellent Italian flavor "sapore italiano". be careful with wild boar crossing the roads at night!

Thank SCaboto
