The " Osteria dei Cavalieri " (The knight’s tavern) is situated in the historical heart of Pisa, a few steps away from the homonymous square and from the famous Piazza dei Miracoli, in a setting full of alleys where time seems to have stood still.In the Osteria it is still possible to leave the table with a festive feeling, captured not only through a meal but also through the enjoyed experience. A place that unites, in a relaxing and warm atmosphere,the most sincere tuscan dishes and refined, always creatively interpreted gastronomical suggestions.A working meal where you talk and in the meantime taste typical dishes while trying creative and inventive combinations made according to the strongest cooking tradition of Tuscany. A pleasant dinner in which you’ll be captured step by step by flavors and solutions offered by the chef and staff of the Osteria dei Cavalieri.All of this is possible in the historical heart of the city of Pisa, a few steps away from the marvellous Piazza dei Cavalieri, the famous tower and Piazza dei Miracoli. The entrance hall of the restaurant is the base of a tower house of 1200.The tables are framed by a characteristic stone ledge: light is shadowing, becomes misty and intimate, thus favouring conversation. In such an environment it is not difficult to lose oneself in unique wine and gastronomic experience. For sure this will grant the occasional visitor a memory, as is the case with the locals, who return time after time in the certainty of being surprised once again.The dishes and menus of the Osteria are born in a climate of perfect balance between innovation and tradition combined with a remarkable choice from a winecellar rich in discoveries and grand classics.

We went to this restaurant because of a recommendation from our hotel. We made reservations and were thankful we did. This restaurant had a waiting line of locals at 8pm. The food and service were outstanding and we would definitely go back. The menu was a tuscan menu and the server was helpful with English

This is the first TA review I have ever written. The food and atmosphere are fine, a 4 I would say, see other reviews. However, I am at visiting at one of the local universities that has an arrangement with several local restaurants, including this one. One asks for a ricevuto fiscale and they are to bill the university directly.... More

There was a party of 5, and for the most part we really enjoyed the food in this restaurant. The Ragu was a little disappointing but the remaining anti pasta and pasta dishes were very good. Service was excellent as well. We didn't have a huge meal, but we were more than satisfied with the quality of the food. Clean... More

The title says it all - nice friendly welcome (even though we were the first customers of the evening), helpful waitress who translated when my Italian failed and the ragu of wild boar was gorgeous

Great pasta and great wine at great prices. This is a traditional Osteria, but serving 'Michelin' food.

Shear luck: looking for another trattoria, we found this one and had the very best Trippa and carpaccio for starters, salmon, gnocchi and ravioli for mains and lemon parfait with strawberries with caffe. One last table seated us, nice attention to our 3yr old.

One of the best trippa I ever had, spaghetti Bottarga excellent also, very close to the one that I usua eat at SD 26 in New York City.

This place had been recommended to us so we knew it was a walk from the tower, almost back to the river. That said, we avoided the tourist traps and got to see the Piazza Cavalieri, a pretty piazza worthy of a short stop. We had a superb 3 course lunch, which was excellent value. The staff were very friendly... More
