on the SS63 practically at the intersection with the short-cut for Codiponte through Gassano. Great for pranzo… Euro 15 gives you wine, primo, secondo & caffe’. The menu has many choices & variety. Lots of locals come to the restaurant, from construction workers to business men. Different clientele for dinner. Noted for an antipasto of various salami & savory pies. There is also a small hotel in the complex too.

Albergo Ristorante da Remo… via Cesare Battisti, 57 – Monzone – Telephone: 0585-97933 – Website: www.hotelristdaremo.it…
there is a white stucco building with a porch on the right after an IP gas station. The food is quite good. Dreadful pink ambiance. And, too many lights on at dinner. My favourite dish is gnocchi di formaggio… or, cheese gnocchi… made like mini soufflés. Scrumptious. The restaurant is also known for its antipasto. Open for both lunch & dinner.
Albergo Ristorante della Posta… via Provinciale, 15 Equi Terme – Telephone: 0585-97937…
good Lunigiana food… il tagliata di manzo & rucola… or, sliced steak with arugula… tops on the list. A lovely woman runs the restaurant by the name of Carmen. Use my name!
Al Vecchio Tino… via Piave, 1 Monti dei Bianchi – Telephone: 0585-97733 – Website: www.alvacchiotino.com…
some people swear by this restaurant and others not. It is an agriturismo with a restaurant. Panoramic views of the Apuane Mountains and the Lunigiana.  Open for lunch & dinner.
Albergo Ristorante Pasquino… Piazza Giuseppe Mazzini, 22 Aulla – Telephone: 0187-420509…
an excellent restaurant with a simple yet stylishly modern ambiance. Noted for their panagacci… or, a flat bread cooked in terra-cotta dishes heated on an open fire. The bread is served with a creamy white cheese & various salamis. Yum-yum. The rest of the menu is top flight too.
