Ristorante Piazzangelio

One of our favourite restaurants in the area was Cappuccetto Rosso. We were not happy when they told us they were closing. They assured us they would reopen in a new location.

The new restaurant has opened in the historical centre of Barga. It is called Ristorante Piazzangelio, named after the Piazza where it is located.

The interior is elegant and inviting. (Valentina’s photo)

Lovely Valentina looked after us just as well as she did at the previous restaurant.

The food is excellent. We ordered shared plates of prosciutto and mozzarella with a delicious mint sauce.

The fish of the day was Branzino, Sea Bass. They had an enormous one, big enough for our party of 5.

Our desserts were great.

This was the winner.

We wish Valentina and Alfonso and the team the very best for their new venture.

Here is a photo of the official opening. Barga is lucky to have them.

San Cassiano walking path

On Saturday the Alta Via dei Pastori was opened. The walking path takes you from San Cassiano to Monte Prato Fiorito.

The mayor officially opened the path.

Aldo Lanini from Pegaso Trekking was the initiator and the one who brought together a group of people to organise the project.

San Cassiano di Controni was once the most populated of the Bagni di Lucca villages. It is the largest in area with several hamlets.

The information board tells the story.

This is a wonderful initiative. There are dozens of old mule trails between the villages of Bagni di Lucca. It is the perfect way to see this gorgeous area. I’m sure this new path will be put to good use.

Thank you Agostino for being there and taking the photos to share.
