“Fiorentina & Funghi !!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Far up the hills ontop of Massa, the place serves incredible meats and a fantastic choice of mushrooms . My choice is the Funchi Porcini saltati con aglio e prezzemolo. The little fried mushrooms are also very good. Service is so so and the place old fashioned but ok.

“Disapointed me - la qualità mi ha deluso”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

This was the one place I was looking forward to revisiting since the last few summers, but I will unfortunately never come back. The quality has deteriorated drastically. Although the view is spectacular and the tagliolini con tartufi were still alright, the meat (Bistecca Fiorentina) was not properly selected or cooked.
This was our meat place in the area, but they are not doing it anymore, maybe the cook changed. The signs were obvious: almost empty on a friday night.. To top it off, I and a few other guests were asked to ash our cigarettes or cigares once a certain "favorite" party has arrived, although we were in the smoking area.

Sorry, I never leave reviews, but this really got to me..

“Great Restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

If you have the chance to eat at La Ruota you will not regret it. The food is excellent, the service is friendly and the view over Massa is beautiful! A lovely family run business.
