dining at La Taverna di Emma was a very nice experience which I will remember for quite a long time! Booking is highly recommended since this is a very famous restaurant. I visited Pisa in December and though it was raining quite heavily the place was filled quite quickly. After we sat, we were served the menus, home made bread... More

In this place we had just the starters: five huge plates of typically Tuscan beef, cold cuts and cheeses wisely arranged with other typical Italian foods. The starters are more than one course, and at the end we were so satiated that we decided to go just for the dessert.

Just a few metres away from Piazza del duommo and the leaning tower, this is the best and most Italian restaurant we've been to. Bread, wine and pasta are home made and we spent as few as 34Eur for a superb meal for two. Definitely recommended if you want to taste the real Italian flavour!

Tripadvisor alerted us to this restaurant. It is close to the Field of Miracles, but unless you know where it is, you likely wouldn't find it. The extensive menu is in Italian, but one of the waitresses is quite fluent in English and walks you through it. Shortly after ordering, a paper bag full of several varieties of bread arrives;...

This restaurant was full of local people, which is always a very good indication of how good a restaurant is in a tourist city. There was no menu outside and everyone inside seemed to have lots of plates and bottles of wine, so being budget travellers our stomachs just dropped, assuming that this place was going to be really expensive....

Really love restaurant used by locals as much as tourists. Very busy but easy to understand why. Proper home cooked meals. Not fancy (check out that weird brick ceiling) but clean and comfortable and fabulous food which is what matters. Very reasonably priced. Good cheap wine. The homemade bread is fabulous especially the poppy seed one. We had booked as... More
