Our hotel recommended this place on our arrival and so we decided to try it. Busy, and somewhat noisy, but very good food. The salami plate was excellent. We both had the sliced steak with raddiccio and peccorino cheese, and while the grilled radicchio was not quite to my taste, the steak was excellent! Although only served very rare! Highly... More

This restaurant was recommended by the staff at our hotel and although a little difficult to find, tucked away in a market square off the main street, it was worth the visit. We enjoyed our meal and would visit again.

Ate a couple of times here over the years, quite good but unfortunately the bistecca fiorentina was always given to us without the fillet. Apart from that, the upper room of the restaurant is nice.

After a recommendation from a friend we decided to give this restaurant a try. We were not disappointed. The restaurant was a little difficult to find but with the aid of google maps we succeeded in finding it. The restaurant is tucked away in a small market type square not far away from the river and main bridge, which you... More

My partner and I stumbled upon Il Campano as we walked around the old town in Pisa trying to find a place to eat. It was our last night in Italy and they made it memorable. We ordered two appetizers (grilled octopus over arugula with walnut pesto, pici with wild boar sauce) and shared a main dish (porcini mushroom with... More

I come to Pisa often for work and everytime I come to this restaurant I never get disappointed by the quality of the food. La Fiorentina or filetto di manzo are excellent.

Would definitely recommend excellent food and very friendly attentive staff. Cod pasta was exquisite and I wanted to come back the next day.

We found this restaurant based on reviews on the internet and were so glad! It was our best meal in one week in Tuscany! The grilled octopus salad was to die for as was the seafood salad. Everything else we had was also fantastic and the service was also very good. Definitely try to eat here if in Pisa!

We walked 15 minutes from Pisa's tower but it was worthy. The grilled octopus salad was very good. Highly recommend the T-bone. Good meat but even better cooking point. The waiteress very friendly and effective. Only minus is the temperature of the red wine: a bit warm. On and all it is a place to recommend to a friend.

We had an indoor table upstairs in a windowless room. The service was effective but cool, without a lot of discussion or recommendation. The starters were well presented and tasty, a little large given the main course we chose but good. The main course was the steak, a speciality of the region. A large t-bone on a bed of rocket...

Restaurant where you can find the original old plates of this lovely region, from the old recipe strait on your table. Of course the famous Fiorentina steak is the queen of the restaurant. With a wine list of around 200 wine labels from all round the Tuscany area, where you can find as well someone of the Italian's most famous.
