We found this restaurant by chance as we were seeking out another mentioned in our Lonely Planet. We sat outside and they made room for us even though we didn't have a booking. The view isn't great, (sat on a small road) but at least you get some hustle and bustle of Italian life. Our waiter was faultless. Good English,... More

Went here at 9pm on a Saturday evening after being unable to get seated on Peperosa Pisa. Managed to get the last table. Service excellent and friendly, good wine choice. We each had a pasta as a starter then a main of pork and beef. The dishes are unique eg the pork was coated in cofee but they were both... More

This is certainly a restaurant worth seeking out; the food is high quality and beautifully prepared and presented, the staff very friendly and helpful - we had not booked and they went to some effort to fit us in. The decor is great and ambience conducive to a good evening. The dishes offered are a little unusual, the good ones... More

Once again, while in PIsa we dined here a few times. As per our other reviews over the last two years we were not disappointed (apart from the night a private party had booked the restaurant)! The menu is excellent and changes with the seasons, One of our all time favourites for a special, relaxed evening out.Will be back on... More

We have dinner here rather often and finally decided to write this review. Osteria Bernardo has consistently grown since it opened a few years ago. Food is always good and interesting, the menu changes frequently so that you can return and sample different things. Wine list good with a number of options from Tuscany and Pisa region. What makes this... More

We went here on the recommendation of the hotel where we were staying, & were not disappointed. The food was beautifully cooked & presented. The service was friendly but not intrusive. A thoroughly enjoyable evening to conclude our holiday in Italy.

Our hotel actually recommended us a restaurant just around the corner from Osteria Bernando but it was closed at lunch time so I used the “near me now” function on Trip Advisor to land here and I’m glad we did. The service was excellent, as was the décor and the food was the best we had during our trip from... More

This is the best place we ate in Pisa. A nice change from pizza, my husband had the fish of the day and I tried pasta with truffles. Both meals were exceptional and the service was excellent. The restaurant is decorated with local art and had a good selection of local food and wine.

On recommendation from our hotel we ate here on the 5 th night of our Pisa stay. This is by far the best food,and service that we have had from all the restaurants here. Food quality is amazing. Staff are really friendly. They speak English and have a translated menu. We felt very welcome. We would come back again.

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel but looking on the website of Tripadvisor was for me the decision to visit this restaurant. And it was really excellent, hard to find but from the Station through the main street over the bridge and the 3rd or 4th street right and then further then the first restaurants because around the corner...
