Unfortunately no tour
Jun 2021 • Family
Tour was not offered. We had a long way only for this visiting. There was no indication for the closed visiting tours on the website. I looked it up right on the day of visiting. “Official reason” was a machine which had been broken. My advise is to call them in advance, thats what I missed.

Buonasera. E' buona usanza anticipare, la visita presso di noi , con una e-mail. Se avesse scritto Le avremmo risposto che siamo, attualmente, chiusi per ferie annuali. Il nostro non è un negozio, ma un pastificio dove produciamo pasta; quindi come tutte le aziende facciamo le ferie e la manutenzione degli impianti. Bastava che venisse in via de Pastifici, 3 avrebbe potuto constatare di persona. Ben volentieri facciamo vedere, gratuitamente, la lavorazione. Cordialmente. Dino Martelli

Homemade pasta
Jul 2019 • Family
Good guided tour (15-20 min.) around this family run pasta factory. Explaining how pasta is made and showing a few machines in action. The products can be purchased next door.
I would call it a “must do” in Lari. Enjoy!

very interesting experience with pasta making
Jun 2019 • Friends
It was an interesting view of pasta making with explanations on the different kinds of wheat flour. They use semolina which is healthier than white flour as Semolina is coarse not fine. semolina is made from a rougher variety of wheat, which is why it has a yellow colour. ... White flour, on the other hand, is rich in simple carbs without fiber and protein. We saw different machines used and held and tasted pasta. It was a quick tour given by a Marteli family member. They did not serve meals or drinks.

This is a must if you are in Lari
Jun 2019 • Friends
I emailed Luca and arranged a visit to the factory. It is small and family run and although it does not take long to go round this is a must if you are in Lari. Luca was really nice and his English is good.

Visitor Friendly Family Pasta Factory in Medieval Village
Sep 2018 • Couples
Martelli Pasta Factory is Tucscany at its best. Its a small factory owned, operated, and staffed by very friendly family members in a compact setup of equipment, raw materials, and packaging. Out of this little factory comes some of the best pasta in the world. We consume a lot of pasta and Martelli is at the top of our list so we made the factory our first stop on a private car tour of Tuscany. I mention this because we were the only people at the factory but no matter, they gave us a thorough private and personal tour. We happened to be there on the one day a week they stop production and clean/maintain the equipment. Again it didn't matter as it was easy to see everything, even the "in production" pasta hanging on racks. A bonus here was the village of Lari, a small medieval walled village with a castle. The central square had a couple of quaint untouristy shops and a cafe with outside tables. Even if you are not into pasta I think this is a must stop for Tuscany visitors. We carried home several bags of pasta.

Pasta factory tour
Jun 2018 • Friends
What a an amazing, unexpected treat to visit Lucca and this family owned pasta factory. He was more than happy to give us a tour of the small factory including tastes of the pasta coming off the line. Pasta can not be purchased at the factory, but there are a few shops in Lari that sell it, as well as a few restaurants that use it on their menu. Wonderful and fun experience. Took maybe 15 minutes.

What a great place. A working pasta factory right in the middle of a medieval fortified town. Guided by a very friendly Luca. Give him notice of intended walking tour via email.

Martelli's made us very welcome
Jun 2018 • Family
We didn't know what expect on our trip to Lari however, it turned out to be one of the highlights of our holiday in Tuscany. We ventured to the pasta factory and enquired about a tour. We have a six year old boy. Lucca made us more than welcome and explained and showed us how they made their very special pasta. Luckily they were making spaghetti so we enjoyed a special treat! After this we had a wonderful lunch in the restaurant in the main square. Be sure to buy some pasta from the shop to take home and remember your visit for every meal.
