We stopped over in Massa Marittima for lunch and ate here. The food was excellent - we had some pasta (Pici) with a pesto-y sauce and the pig shin (stinco). Both were excellent and really delicious as well as very reasonably priced. In case you visit this town I recommend to eat here.

The restaurant is very small, but the atmosphere is really amazing. Reservation for dinner is needed. The dishes are peculiar, and everything we had was simply impressively tasty. As a dessert, I had cantucci and vin santo: the best I have ever had. Definitely a place worth trying.

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
