stumbled across this place . Beer very cheap (compared to other bars) get there at about 6.30 pm - 7pm for the Aperativo. help yourself to a free buffet selection while ever you are drinking.

We found this place purely by walking by, and we were not sorry. Very nice ambiance - it is like a small retro museum. Food was good, so was vine. The service could be faster, but we visited the restaurant around 3 p.m., so perhaps they had a "skeleton" crew. Waiters did not speak much of English, so please be... More

... and a very warm welcome. We visited Sootbosco for lunch. It's a delightful place but no pasta (which didn't bother us in the slightest). It's crammed full of atmosphere and the food's great.

A great place to have a nice tea or cappuccino alone or with friends. Great ambiance! Sometimes they exhibit artwork from local artists.

We found this place by accident and really loved it. The price is good and the staff super friendly. What we liked most is the cozy atmosphere and the games. We had beers while playing memory and cards... We will always remember our visit to Sottobosco!

Creative decor with glass topped tables filled with curiostities and artisitic mobiles hanging from the ceiling. Simple homemade food is very tasty.

Went to Pisa for four nights and ended each night with a couple of glasses of Tuscan Chardonnay in this friendly, relaxing bar. No frills, no problem. Staff very welcoming and eager for you to try their latestTuscan wine finds. Didn't eat there but what we saw of the food we would do in the future when we return. Helped... More

We just had coffee but the service was excellent and it was a little oasis away from the touristy side of Pisa.

Came here after reading reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Great setting and atmosphere. We even had a nice Italian style pub meal here, it's not a restaurant so don't expect a full menu and the beer's reasonably priced! We loved this place.
