Lari is small but well worth a visit particularly if you are there at the time of the cherry festival in June. In any case, if you go, you should eat at this restaurant. The lady wot does is charming, and the food is delicious and very reasonable. This time my wife and I shared an oven-baked cheese with fig... More

Very good restaurant, the food was very good and local. The only thing I didn't like, the lady serving could be nicer, sometimes was a bit rude, but everything else was OK.

30m from the factory. We ate 2 different pastas, one of them with truffles (the real deal, not truffel oil). Higher pricerange but worth it. Since we came here especially for the pasta this is an exellent choice

We came here for dinner and had an outstanding experience in service and quality of food. Ingredients and attention to detail was top notch, price is okay if a little above the average. Will go again.

We went there a few months ago, we were six and all satisfied with this restaurant. The location is great and not to noisy. We can see a part of the castle and enjoy the Italian life at night,for instance the children used to playing with their neighbors and the Italian families talking together. I ordered one of the local... More

(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
