Description: Dal 1976 tutte le sere vanno in scena la cura e l’attenzione per la buona cucina tesa a riscoprire una lista dei mangiari legati alla tradizione culinaria toscana, medievale e rinascimentale, basata sulla semplicità e sulla bontà degli ingredienti.Proporre delle specialità gastronomiche, legate alla cultura popolare del cibo, in un antico teatro della Commedia dell’Arte, inevitabilmente non può che produrre un connubio tra questi due mondi. La Lista dei Mangiari è così popolata da personaggi del Teatro dei Guitti o da personaggi e miti della nostra cultura popolare -Arlecchino, Beccofino, Pulcinella, Colombina, Burlamacca...- attori di una costante ricerca dello stare bene a tavola.Nella caratteristica piazzetta del borgo medievale di Montecatini Alto, si trova uno storico edificio usato nel passato come “stanzone delle commedie”, poi Teatro stabile dell’Accademia dei Risorti, infine cinematografo. Il locale vanta questa location unica e suggestiva in cui cibo, arte, musica e teatro si esprimono in un armonioso equilibrio.

“Fabulous food with excellent service and ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2011

We enjoyed an outdoor lunch at Le Maschere so much that we made a special trip several nights later to have dinner indoors. The waiter/owner was very engaging (in English) and helpful - describing their original Tuscan dishes and making excellent suggestions. One of our group was gluten intolerant and the restaurant offered a number of gluten free options that could be adapted from the menu. The food was excellent, the waiter was extremely nice and the historic theatre ambiance was both unique and enjoyable. We were very pleased with the waiter's suggestions and I would recommend asking for his recommendations. Overall, our entire group was very pleased with the food and the restaurant was one of the highlights of our stay in Tuscany.
