Inside the town walls, this is a wonderful restaurant on a small square. We were walking around the town and stumbled on L'Osteria as we were looking for a place for lunch and were very glad we did. Wonderful pasta and meats. And very reasonable prices.

Great food, attentive staff and located in quiet part of Tuscany town of Barga. Great choice of beers and wine. Seems to be one of the most popular restaurants in Barga old town area and even in late September was busy after 19:30

We hadn't booked anywhere for a Friday night and ended up here. Cute place with good service but the food was a let down. Can do much better in Barga- pasta didn't appear to be home made which we have come to expect locally.

Situated in old Barga, this restaurant comes alive in the evening. If you want to go somewhere where the food is good and there is always sociable company, this is the place. Usually full of visitors in the high summer months, so reservations are recommended. Great place for special events such as Bel Canto and, for me, Epifania (January 5th)... More

Good Italian cooking especially the porchini mushrooms which were in season. Good service and great value. Used by locals which is always a good sign.

3 of us ordered various dishes, all were delicious. Sat outside and enjoyed the evening, a bit cold but that was our choice. There were no sad faces, our meals, deserts and wine were perfect. The service was faultless we were taken care of perfectly. Well done.

I have eaten at l'Osteria several times whilst visiting Barga over the past 10 years. I have never been disappointed. The food is simple but delicious, using seasonal local products. My favorite is the antipasti comprising peccorino cheese, walnuts and honey. Staff are friendly and attentive. Priced are reasonable for the quality of ingredients used.

Authentic Italian cuisine in a small square in the old town, we sat in the covered outside area and had the very best of lunches, 2 courses each plus a bottle of the local wine 39 euros. The ravioli with butter and sage, absolutely yummy. But checking out other diners plates it all looks fantastic. Would definitely recommend

We went to L'osteria as all other places in Barga were packed and enjoyed our meals. Cold cuts and cheeses were good, beef fillets with porcini mushrooms were nicely prepared with no excessive olive oil use - an advantage for those watching their waistlines. You won't find something sophisticated here but all the ingredients are fresh and dishes are cooked... More
