Restaurant Locanda Gavarini in Mocrone is located in the heart of Lunigiana. Given its position, it offers a choice of typical dishes of this territory that goes from the sea to the mountains. The family management ensures knowledge that has been handed down for some time and a choice of raw materials of excellent quality, such as for meat.
Locanda Gavarini’s menu offers a wide choice, whose common thread is adherence to local traditions without disdaining contaminations of modern style.
Among the appetizers of the house we find the excellent Lunigiana cold cuts, the sweet and sour vegetables of own production, the herbal cake and stuffed stew (typical strips of fried leavened dough).
The fresh pastas that make up the first ones are all made by hand: you go from ravioli with gorgonzola and pear to tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms, from testaroli to pesto to tagliolini with prosciutto prague and truffle.
The main course of the house, as of all the tradition of the territory, are the latter. To try the intense taste of this land you can choose between the stewed boar with roasted polenta, the roast pork with porcini mushrooms, the tip of veal in the oven and the pig with chestnuts. But it is the cut of beef to be the true main dish: it is in fact of quality beef Rubia Gallega; this beef is a native breed of Galicia. The rainy and particularly humid climate helps to make the pastures a distinctive, unique and special element. All this leads to an exceptional quality of meat, defined by all the best in the world. Moreover, when it comes to breeding of Rubia Gallega, it is always very small farms, composed of ever more than 5 or 6 cows, always fed corn and barley. It is the only restaurant in the Lunigiana to propose it and it would be a shame not to try it.
As a dessert you can choose between the tiramisu, the fig jam tart or the excellent pear and rosemary pie.
