Typical food of Carfagnana region... a lot of good food if you try the degustazione menu. Mostly antipasti, cold cuts... not warm disches...Very typical interior a must see if you are coming from abroad.

This is not fine food but a taste of local heritage so if you are looking for a fine food complicated place this is not the one.

If you have small children the owner says you call so they organize some lasagna because the food is more tasting local food and wine for adults.

All the personnel is very helpful and want to give you the best possible experience.

This is a very interesting old atmospheric establishment with one long table. We sat on the end with a lively young French family. The waitress was pleasant and explained the food served on old wooden boards - samples of local grains, meats and three cheeses accompanied with hard bread and a carafe of local red wine. Dessert was a trio of pastries - one enjoyable the others rather dry pastry. Food wasn't to standard of pictures on tripadvisor; perhaps we went on the wrong day.

Having enjoyed this place several years ago, we stopped in after a wild drive over the Passo Radici. No menu, no English--generally not a problem for us, but all we were offered were selections of cheese and cured meats. The baroldo was good, the fresh ricotta was delicious, but the remaining samples were of average merit, the stale bread did not help, and the generic red wine worked but wasn't so memorable. All of this would have been OK if the price hadn't been charged out at almost 40 Euro. Yeah, we neglected to ask the cost in advance, but all of this was definitely missable. Recommend looking elsewhere.

We enjoyed the "tasting" menu at 18 euros which was a feast of local products, starting with bruschetta with various toppings, chicken salad, frittata in pastry, followed by very generous platters of meats then cheese. Or you can just choose one of the platters or salad individually. It's a simple menu. Washed down with a pleasant carafe of red wine. Local bobby came in for a takeaway mortadella sandwich, the meat sliced from an enormous piece taking pride of place. Bottles of fine wines and champagnes line the walls right up to the ceiling. Seating is at long tables so be prepared to share. You can buy products to take home.

A variety of typical local foods, from mushrooms to cheese to meat with a glass of local wine. Delicious! Well worth the stop.
