After walking 28km from Sarzana on the via Francigena, we stumbled on Il Fatty at lunch time. Owner made us most welcome, explained the menu & recommended the tripe & bread soup. Delicious & filling. Two slices of the owners mothers berry cheesecake with coffee topped off a perfect meal. Fresh delicious food, lovingly prepared & served with a smile - perfect

Tuscan food made good. It's been a while since i left a restaurant so satisfied. Owner very welcoming and chatted when he had time. Highly recommended.

Yes, the specialty is lampredotto, and it's tripe, which hasn't really been one of my favorites, but Alessandro is a real magician. Terrific sandwich, get the two sauces and ask for it pretty juicy - bagnato. Wow, you can't get a better version of tripe, and it's only 3.50, so if you don't like it...there are plenty of other choices for backup! And it's a clean, pretty restaurant you'll enjoy.

The food was great and reasonably priced, and the service was excellent. They also speak english and were happy to translate the menu items for us, which was a very nice bonus.

This rather nice, spacious ‘sandwich’ bar in the pedestrianised centre of Massa (with indoor and outdoor seating) offers an awful lot more choice than mere panini. We were en route home from Florence and knowing hubby enjoys good tripe I thought we should make a slight detour from the autostrada to check it out. It was an excellent decision. While many take the panini option, we decided to have a ribolito (more than acceptable) followed by excellent tripe for hubby and a splendid tuna salad for myself. With bread, a bottle of wine, water and coffee it came to circa €35 – most acceptable. Service is cheery and prompt. Food allergies and intolerances are noted and respected – thank you! Both Italian and English are spoken and finding a parking space close by is not difficult.
Consider!
