All dishes with mushrooms are delicious, hand made pasta (tagliatelle) too. Be careful with a large portions :) And local Cima red wine for perfect dinner.

Food was amazingly good. Very good prices. Huge servings and very tasty authentic italian food. We met an proffesional soccer umpire who had a great time sharing his anecdotes with us. Worth every penny. Try the carbonara

Funghi, Fiorentina and black truffles are always amazingly good and very cheap. Difficult to find up in the secluded mountains above Massa but really worth the trip !

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...

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.
