Had a very special evening here. The host is very welcoming and understands how to make his customers deel comfortable. Has the artichoc salade and tuna, which were amazing. Very nice mix of flavours and textures. Had the chestnut mousse for dessert, nicely prepared but not for me. Nice offer of dessert wine on the house. Excellent place, highly recommended.

After the reviews I expected something special, but that wasn't the case. The server who I presumed was the owner was very good and attentive but tenfold let it down. I had prawn gratin but this was nice prawns with some almonds on the top. My wife had what looked like lovely grilled beef but?it was really tough. Might have... More

The food was beautifully presented and tasted as good. I highly recommend the lamb and the chocolate flan and my husband had the beef and said it was cooked to perfection. Great service too! If we come back to Pisa we will be back.

This restaurant is awesome. I ate here for 4 nights at the start of my visit to Tuscany and again on my last night. The tastes were delicious; the wine list was superb; and the staff and location and ambiance was superb.

This was a lovely meal - the best we had during our 10 night Tuscany trip. The restaurant was recommended in our LP guide and our receptionist was happy to book us a table. We ate at a little table on the decked area outside - just round the corner from a pretty square so very quiet. Service was great... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by the receptionist at our hotel, who said it was the one she herself liked best. We could see why. It is unpretentious. We were the only foreigners there. The menu was imaginative, with meat, fish and vegetarian options. The wine list was good and the service was charming, simple, straightforward and effective.

Absolutely fantastic meal with welcoming hosts and top quality food! This was amongst the best meals we had in Italy and is highly recommended. Try the goats cheese and pecorino starter - delicious! Thank you to our waiter for making us feel so welcome. We will recommend!!

As far as I understand, this restaurant is only open at night, but the Sunday is also open for lunch. And in fact we tried it on a Sunday. The menu is evidently the result of a refined gastronomic research: there are some unusual dishes and ingredients. Here are our choices: as starters, artichoke salad with flakes of grana cheese...
