At La Sosta there are about 25 seats. Its furniture is made of solid walnut wood. The atmosphere at La Sosta is cozy and warm. Wines are preserved in a very excellent way, in an at sight cellar that due to its beauty can leave you breathless.La Sosta’s menu is thought up and reinvented every month depending on the quality of the fresh ingredients that are available and for this reason you can always taste different dishes and discover the tastes and flavors of the season you are in. We offer both a traditional cooking of the most typical dishes based on products of the land and a traditional cuisine based on fish of high quality, and never bred and if possible home-grown. The offer is enriched with a refined proposal of meats and cheeses.The staff of the restaurant La Sosta offers its guests an important Wine List which selects and contains the best Italian and foreign labels, with particular attention to the traditional red wines of Tuscany and Piedmont, references of the Italian regional excellence and a careful and sophisticated selection of French wines.

This has a modern atmosphere, service is good and efficient. We both chose seafood ravioli, which was excellent and came with lots of extra seafood garnishes and a tasty sauce. We were asked if we would eat this together so I had my appetizer after, and that was fine. My appetizer was gratin of eggplant with pecorino cheese and smoked... More

Like its older sister--Osteria dei Cavalieri--across via Frediani, La Sosta is a lovely place to eat. This newish restaurant is just steps from the beautiful Piazza dei Cavalieri and charming pedestrian Borgo Stretto (stop there first at an outdoor cafe for an apertivo or glass of wine and plate of free snacks), and a short stroll from Piazza dei Miracoli....

We went here as my partner is gluten intolerant and it didn't disappoint. Gluten free spaghetti for her and some incredible ravioli for me all washed down with a lovely bottle of house white. It was full of locals on a Monday night, not too expensive and the service was excellent. Highly recommended

We were looking for somewhere for lunch after walking to the leaning tower. We were advised by a nice young lady in the Tourist office near the station to look in the Via San Frediano. Some of the restaurants were closed on Saturday lunch time but this was open and looked busy. it was an excellent choice. We had an... More

We poked into a luxury hotel in Pisa for a restaurant suggestion from a man at the front desk, who sent us to another restaurant -- but this one, a sister restaurant across the quiet street, attracted us with its relative informality. It was nearly empty -- one of other table was occupied, usually a warning sign -- but we... More

Quite astonishing meal. This place has been well reviewed by TA reviewers and by Rough Guide but the lunch we had exceeded our wildest expectations. Suggest try the home made guinea fowl ravioli and follow this with the semifreddo di crema al croccante di pistacci di bronte. This dolce simply dissolved in our mouths!

Like many people we stayed one night in pisa before flying home. We couldn't get onto our first choice restaurant, but if you end up here, you won't be disappointed. The mixed grill looked unfeasibly enormous. We had a fresh fish dish and ravioli, both great. Good bye Italia, hope to see you soon!

We actually found by accident La Sosta dei Cavalieri as it didn't work out with the restaurant we selected. Convinced by the front-door and the menu, we entered being a bit worried that it might be too late. We got very well welcomed and were already delighted with the setting, sober but nice and relaxing. I opted for the menu... More

We went here specifically because they said they could cater for a gluten free diet and we were not disappointed. Whilst the menu was not specifically gluten free, the staff were knowledgeable and happy to adapt a dish if possible. Great wine cellar too
