We've visited the pasta factory from Familia Martelli so see how handmade pasta is being produced. And we weren't disappointed. We saw almost the whole process how the pasta is being made. And it didn't even cost something. This kind of pasta should always be...More

Stopped by this wonderful little pasta factory in Lari as part of a tour. Only family members work there and they produce pasta the traditional way. Lovely visit.

We have been into making homemade pasta for a long time. It was absolutely fascinating to see how the pasta was first made in the early years....AND is still made the same way today at Martelli's. A family owned and run business with care and...More

We travelled for about an hour from Monteverdi Mattrimino to get to Lari to have a look at the old fashioned way of making pasta only to find that they are closed for the holidays. A fact not mentioned in the Lonely Planet travel guide....More

The Martellis were on vacation, but we were able to buy some of their pasta up at the local store and I will be going back for more! The village is like taking a step back in time. Recommend a visit.

What a discovery and what a great atmosphere! The village of Lari is beautiful, with nice little shops and bars and friendly people. In the middles of the centre, beside the medieval fortress is this small factory that is surely worth a visit. Look around,...More

It was a great little tour to this family own pasta factory. All of them were very friendly, they open their factory to tourists. The pasta is more expensive but you'll know why when you visit the factory. Love it
