In the province of Massa Carrara, the Vetrina Toscana trattorias, inns and taverns and the little shops subscribing to the network, offer typical local dishes and products that are too good to miss.
From the Lunigiana mountains to the sea, there are numerous places where you can discover the local flavours. Each restaurant has a different tasting menu but they all offer local wines and traditional dishes.
They range from typical local dishes like testaroli pasta with pesto sauce or vegetable pie to imaginative new interpretations of ancient flavours like lardo di Colonnata (a type of cured meat) with raisins and wafers of black bread. Then there are homemade tortelli, fried pasta, roast leg of lamb and dried cod: a real food and wine journey through the flavours of Massa and Carrara.
