Fodor's Review

This charming white-wall restaurant, a few steps from Piazza dei Cavalieri, is reason enough to come to Pisa. They can do it all here—serve up exquisitely grilled fish dishes, please vegetarians, and prepare tagliata (thin slivers of rare beef) for meat lovers. Three set menus, from the sea, garden, and earth, are available, or you can order à la carte. For dinner there's an early seating (around 7:30) and a later one (around 9); opt for the later one if you

want time to linger over your meal.

Much Better Than the Leaning Tower

A super place. Go !!!! We went for lunch and everything was excellent. A wide cross section of folks; regulars, some tourists, children, oldsters etc; The place has no pretensions and is a very confortable place to eat. We started with two wonderful dishes; grilled vegetables (simple but done to perfection) and a cheese (pecorino) ravioli with beans which was super. The next course was clams (heaven) and the other, grilled calamari. I still can

taste it a week later. A superb large rocket and parmesan salad was shared. Desserts of semifreddo and a pear tart along with coffee were the perfect finishing touches on a truly delightful meal. All this was washed down with some of the house red wine. It was a true bargain at 47 euros. If you are in Pisa eat here. Next time we are back we will surely return.
