We discovered this cosy restaurant on July 12th by chance. It is nestled in the heart of the town, it proposes an original menù with traditional recipes, high quality ingredients and Slow Food products. As an example, you may taste the Testaroli from Pontremoli or excellent home made noodle with local mold cheese from small scale producers. We appreciated very... More

We had a great pasta lunch here and decided to return for an evening meal a few nights later. The service for lunch had been super friendly but a little less so for the dinner. The food was good but we've had better on the trip.

This lovely, tiny restaurant serves excellent (slow) food, with emphasis on local ingredients. The kind of places where you are just feeling great. Lovely service & good value for money too.

We picked this place purely based on the location and its charm. Very inventive and delicious slow-food; highly recommended! We sat at one of the tiny tables outside, located in a tiny but beautiful alley - felt like a scene from a movie. Locals strolled by - even one guy (hunter) with his rifle, hound dog and a pheasant stuffed... More

We were passing through Massa Marittima and I knew from my Osteria Slow Food guide La Tana dei Brilli was recommended.So we were delighted to walk into a small alley off the main square and discover this tiny place.It has to be true that it's the smallest osteria in the guide,they propably can only manage 16 customers at a time.We...

Lovely slow cooked main dishes with a true tuscan feel. Very small place and no one speaks english so be prepared! They only take cash too.

Nice tiny restaurant in the heart of the city! Thus not on the main square were you find many tourist fellows but just a few more steps in a narrow cozy path. Indications for Slow Food dishes and good value for money.

When you arrive in Massa Marittima you immediately go back in time as you walk into Piazza Garibaldi, described in the Rough Guide as an exquisite example of Tuscan town planning, with the thirteenth century duomo set on broad steps at a dramatically oblique angle to the square. While probably accurate such words do little to convey the timeless feeling... More

This is a great place where to appreciate amazing food made with local ingredients, the King of Slow Food. Cozy location, lovely service, try their I BANDI extra virgin olive oil on bread, amazing. If you can eat in the narrow outside alley where the entrance is, the temperature is great in a sunny day.
