Superb!

Recommended by the lady who runs the B and B we are staying in, we have returned here serveral times. This is truly a great place to eat with fresh ingredients expertly prepared, a vast selection of fine wines and friendly service well able to cope with English speaking customers.

We were sent to Ristorante Galileo by our hotel clerk otherwise we would have never even went to that part of the City. Graffiti filled walls line the dark alley we went down to get to this place. The tourist menu was expensive and limited. Ordering off the fixed tourist menu was alacarte so it was even more expensive. The... More

The restaurant is fairly spacious and well laid out with tables outside and in air conditioned comfort. Again the menu is limited with most dishes of beef . No lamb . The wines served are of good quality and the food is good . However it does seem slightly more pricey than other places but the owner Marco makes up... More

We had only ont night in Pisa during our travel in Italy. To not just wander around the streets, we asked our hotel host to suggest a place for us. Ristorante Galileo was her favorite, thus she recommended us to go there. When entering the room, we got a really good vibe that we wouldn't be disappointed. The food was... More

In the middle of the day I had nice full dinner with drink and dessert included, and all that just for 10 euros. I was kind of full-lunch-deal. But even without the deal all prices I would call cheap for the restaurant atmosphere, hospitality, and perfect quality of food.

Husband was working in Pisa and said he frequently went to this restaurant. We joined him twice while visiting and totally agree with him. Staff very attentive and food is amazing!

Everything was perfect! Very nice staff and the food was delicious! This must be the restaurant we were looking for during our stay. Owners that like to cook, serve and own a restaurant. If i could I would bring Galileo to Sweden!!!

We last went to this restaurant three years ago and were very happy to return. We arrived at 1230 - whilst some of the staff and related family were still having lunch and we were in a bit of an un-Italian rush as we had to get back to the airport at 1415 to return to UK. It was a... More

The ristorante is a calm and nicely decorated place. They serve an amazing lobster pasta at a very reasonnable price, together with very fine wines, as they have a large choice of mainly chianti wines from their cellars. Try the sangervasio riserva : a good choice, for 15€ only !

I had a fillet steak cooked to perfection. My partner had Seabass which she said was delicious. We had dessert each and 2 bottle of Chianti. Total bill - 95 euros. Very good deal and a great experience. Hope to return to Pisa one day and will definitely visit this restaurant again.
