We had the pasta and a sandwich. Pasta was beautiful and clearly homemade.

The piani sandwich was good and made for a decent lunch.

Thank Lorna O

I went there by chance. The area around Piazza della Sala was crowded as usual. We have been able to find a table outside (last one) at La Battilarda. We were lucky. I have appreciated the fact that the waiter was suggesting to reduce our order since they serve generous portions. We took a Tagliere of cold cuts with the classic bruschette (chicken-liver pate', etc..) together with two gorgeous glasses of red Bolgheri wine. So simple and so good. Each goods served was really tasting great. The hand cutted ham (prosciutto) was a really divine, same for the porchetta (roasted pork) as well as the other cuts and the pecorino cheese. The bread also was really the tuscan one you should serve with them. I am born and raised in tuscany however it was a long time I was so delighted by such a simple meal. By talking with them I have learned (and it makes sense) that their staff has a "background" in a famous butcher's shop of the area. So, if you are looking for a quick meal to enjoy with a glass of wine in Pistoia, don't look any further.

The food at this place was amazing. It was simple, zesty and soooo delicious. Big, satisfying portions. I had a cherry tomatoes and rucola salad, plus the pork cooked on rosemary and black olives, plus the penne al ragu of boar meat, along with a half liter of Tuscan red wine, all for EUR 21.00. It is a quaint, little restaurant, with a few tables inside and out, right on Via del Lastrone, a pedestrian street closed to traffic. It has a charming ambience, and service was nice and friendly. I loved everything about this place.
