Description: 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.

My husband (Italian) asked for a recommendation for lunch from a local. We passed quite a few places packed with fellow tourists & almost gave up & joined the masses as the Osteria Dei Cavalieri was further away than described. So glad we didn't. Excellent menu & service. We ordered 3 dishes that were off the menu & we weren't... More

If you enjoy great food and exceptional service, then this restaurant ticks all the boxes. We were given some fabulous recommendations by the waiter, who even went to the extent of showing us what fish we ordered as we did not know the English name for it. The food was all very artistically presented and delicious. Great atmosphere, service and... More

Having noticed we were a bit flustered, or waiter asked if we were in a rush, as if so he'd start telling us about the specials straight away. A great start followed up with great food served without delay. We had the typical Tuscan soup (ribollita), tagliatelle with white truffle and steak with cheese (scamorza) and vegetables, all absolutely delicious.... More

Luckily we made a reservation for a Saturday evening in September as during the evening countless people were disappointed to be turned away. The service, food, wine and atmosphere were top class and we would have returned if we had been staying in Pisa for longer. Highly recommended but make sure you reserve a table.

If you really want to treat yourselves, try Osteria dei Cavalieri. It's not an everyday meal, but a unique journey for your palate. Check out the cool art on the walls too!

We passed this place by chance while visiting Pisa and were delighted to have found it. We were eating quite early at lunch so there was space but it did fill up very quickly. The food was excellent and was undoubtedly the best meal of the holiday.Mains ranged from a rabbit dish to a salmon and gnochetti (very tasty sauce)Deserts... More
