Locanda Gavarini: History
Founded in 1909 as an inn with a license to sell groceries, Gavarini was a meeting point between locals and casual travellers who found this place along their journey. In 1948 grandmother Teresa, who worked as a cook, decided to focus on the inn and on a cuisine that offered the best of the best. In 1988, the following generation listened to the requests of the time and decided to welcome customers in a deeper way, giving them the possibility to stay overnight, thanks to 5 beautifully renovated rooms, located in front of restaurant garden. In 2003 the restoration of another wing of the building was finally completed. On ground floor there is a wine cellar for tastings as well as some rooms reserved for special occasions. On the upper floors there are 5 double bedrooms and 4 mini apartments. Today, Locanda Gavarini is the perfect place where to enjoy your evenings and relax, leaving behind your everyday life and celebrating your special occasions in grand style.
Locanda Gavarini: The Restaurant
The cuisine of Locanda Gavarini is renowned for its authenticity and for bringing to the table the typical dishes of Lunigiana, prepared daily with fresh, genuine and homemade products. Every day you can enjoy special menus based on meat, porcini mushrooms, typical cheese, homemade desserts and many other traditional specialities. The ancient and simple recipes, which are handed down within the family, offer those genuine and fresh flavours that still enrich our tables today. You can also find a wide selection of wines to accompany your dishes. Locanda Gavarini is also the ideal place for dinners and business lunches and makes customised menus to suit every need.
Locanda Gavarini: Ceremonies and Events
Attention to every detail, great loyalty to tradition but also strong innovation skills: these are the qualities that makes the service at Locanda Gavarini different; it suits every type of event, from small receptions to large business conventions.
Thanks to the two large and welcoming rooms and to different private rooms, as well as a private park and a charming natural setting (ideal for photo shoots), Locanda Gavarini is the ideal destination for receptions and banquets of all kinds (weddings, first communions, baptisms, golden weddings, graduation parties, birthdays, etc.). It can comfortably host up to 300 table seats. During spring and summer, the same capacity applies to the outdoor space, with charming and well-equipped green areas.
To guarantee quality and freshness, the selection, purchase, cooking and table service are managed by the internal staff, thus avoiding catering or external services.
