Been going there for more than 30 years. Feels like home. It doesn't get any more Italian and it doesn't get any better. Unpretentious, everything top quality and from meat to scampi, from pasta to whatever you like, you won't be disappointed. Its always been great. Don't miss out on Scroppino after dinner and get yourself a room in the... More

We had lunch here. Wild boar sauce over pasta, wild mushrooms over pasta, grilled vegetables and a bottle of the local wine. They provide focaccia and two other breads to start and all were delicious. The boar sauce was very good but about three bones I wasn't expecting until I bit them. Watch our teeth. Mushroom pasta needed something. Grilled... More

We, 4 adults and 4 kids/teens chose La Nina for our last evening in Capannori, and this was the best dining experience during our vacation week in Tuscany. We were sitting in a beautiful garden with green surroundings. Both pasta, risotto and main courses were all very tasty. Although the menu was in Italian, the waiters were very patient in... More

It was a happy surprise to arrive at La Nina. Under the pergola, we ate scrumptious food and enjoyed the pretty surroundings. Our waiter was absolutely charming, which put our party at ease. The food was delectable, good to the last bite.

Our guide suggested we eat at this restaurant after visiting the fortress in Montecarlo. It was incredible and by far the best meal we've had in Italy, and we've been here two weeks. We ordered steak, tortelli, stuffed zucchini flowers, grilled vegetables, two different kinds of risotto, rabbit and a range of delicious desserts. Every dish was delicious. The meal... More

Some twelve years ago we fairly regularly stayed at Villa La Nina and dined at Restaurant La Nina while looking for a property in the Montecarlo (Tuscana) area. We did not find the property but we did find La Nina and have returned several times in the intervening years. Most recently June 2015. A delightful return to Classic Tuscan Cuisine... More
