L’altana is a traditional Italian trattoria in Barga. The truffle pasta was amazing, while risotto was good but not to the same standard. The atmosphere is pleasant, and it is recommended when in the area.

A family run restaurant, the food was delicious and we returned for the second night. In the old historic town, it is located next to the gate so it easy to find it. Highly recommended

Delicious homemade dinners made by family in a small restaurant. We ordered way too much food, but we couldn’t stop eating because it was so delicious. It is like experiencing dinner in an Italian home.
