Several people recommended this restaurant in Lari, a small medieval town. We had a great dinner with our family of 5. They serve Martelli pasta which is made in Lari. (You can purchase the pasta at the local store in town. We brought some home with us!) The bruschetta was unique and amazing. We also had the pasta with spicy... More

Lari is a lovely little village to visit. It's woth having a look at Martelli, a family business that still makes pasta as it should be made. After our visit we asked, where we could eat their pasta and were directed to this reastaurant. I thoroughly enjoyed my dish, it was a pasta with asparagus and cheese. The tiramisu was... More

This is a really cozy place with great personal and attentive service. Try the Veal Carpaccio with black truffle for a starter. Peak insiden the wine cellar for a whiff of days long gone.

We arrived at the restaurant 10 minutes past 2. When we asked for a table the woman told us that the kitchen was closed 10 minutes ago. The way she said it was very unfriendly. When I asked here to use the toilet she told us that we can ask at the bar around the corner. As I am pregnant... More

Not interested in serving us. After 12 days in the vicinity staying at the Cevoili Country Resort this was the only unwelcoming experience.

This restaurant is a little gem of its kind. Located in Lari, it has a nice terrace and an interesting dining room where you can enjoy the typical Tuscan tradition food. We had a mix of crostini, bruschette and some truffles based starters and we found them excellent. Same for the pasta and desserts. Plus: excellent location and friendly service

We had a nice time here. The pasta with truffles is extremely good. Of the four nights we ate in the area, this was the most expensive and not the best. I think there are other restaurants which are better. The service could have been more attentive. When we arrived at 8pm we were the only ones there, but it... More
