In Massa? Goto La Tana del Brilli. It's a small restaurant so ensure you reserve. The cooking is great. Expect real Tuscan cooking with some local and interesting ingredients.

One of the best meals of my life, and I've eaten a bunch. Definitely worth finding a way to experience a meal here. It's a small place so reservations are essential for dinner, possibly a few days in advance. Lunch is easier to schedule - go that route if time is scarce.

I tried to book a table here twice. The first time I was asked to come back in ten minutes and found the place closed. The second time I was asked to do the same. This time I returned earlier and was greeted by a young gentleman who laughed and told me that all tables were now reserved. Having wheeled... More

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
