Booked this on the strength of trip advisor reviews. The staff were great and the restaurant itself nicely decorated. I had one nice glass of Chianti and ordered the shellfish soup that wasn't soup. It was mussels and clams in the shells in wine and garlic, and the toast it came with was quite burnt. I ordered seafood risotto for... More

Honestly what dragged me there had been the # of reviews addressed to the place, and the place overall lived up to that expectation. Strategically located by Arno river, the personnel was hospitable and polite. I ordered a fish based starter and a main course, both delicious though the portions were a bit small. Fair price. Recommended.

fabulous vibe, wonderful service - the 'main man' is a joy - a host with care and the warmest smile, the serving staff friendly and anxious to please, the pasta marvellous - the nero ravioli stuffed with seabass and nutmeg sublime, the mixed grill a feast, the seafood soup splendid - crayfish and razor clams (cannolicchi) a revelation. Top Tuscan... More

i saw their seafood menu online and was quite interested in it. However, when i went down, they had already changed the menu (the new menu wasnt quite as enticing as the old one). I settled for a shellfish soup and the grilled tuna with almonds and basil. Both lived up to their expectations. the shellfish soup wasnt what i... More

We had really high hopes of having a nice meal to start our holiday, however I cannot even class the food as mediocre... We started with the scallops, which was very bland.. Followed by by pasta with calamari & what was described to us to be fish eggs.. It was inedible. The pasta my boyfriend had, which was with wild... More

Great food, great staff, great atmosphere. A bonus for us was that the menu was also in English, even though the restaurant appeared to be filled with local people. Would definitely recommend. We arrived at about 7.45 and were lucky to get a a table as within 1/2 hour restaurant was full to the brim. I think all other tables... More

If you are looking for the real Italian cuisine and not the cheap to make but expensive to buy tourist bistros then this is the place for you. Whilst the decor might seem a little dated the quality of the food and service soon makes you forget. The enclosed dining area has an air tight entrance which ensures you can... More

Had a fantastic time in Pisa at this restaurant. The food was great and service was great. One of the best places to eat in Pisa. Will go back when in Tuscany.

Having checked out a few restaurants mid afternoon decided to check TA and like a previous reviewer were concerned to get to San Paolo early as we hadn't booked. The staff were a little stunned as we... More

Me and my boyfriend picked out this restaurant for our last night in piza after a week of touring Italy and we weren't disappointed with our choice. The restaurant staff kindly squeezed us in as we hadn't booked, I'm so glad they did! We had planned to go for 4 courses in true italian style but the waiter advised us... More
