Restaurants in Altopascio

We enjoyed a very good meal at Osteria La Dispensa, marked on the map. There are quite a few restaurants in Altopascio, considering the size of the town.

Altopascio is a village of Tuscany known for its bread. The ouskirts are mared by some large, commercial bakeries, but the small historic center does have its charm. The battle of Altopascio in 1325 pitted Castruccio Castracani with the Florentines. Castracani won and became duke of Lucca.
