Just to set the scene, I had some 36 hours in Pisa and ate twice at Beny's, it really was that good. Dinner: I was welcomed with a glass of bubbly, and had the menu explained in detail. I settled for a first course of cuttlefish, calamari, beans, asparagus, artichoke and bottarga. It was delicious with all the ingredients both... More

On the recommendation of our airbnb host we arrived at this small restaurant in the back streets of Pisa. It proved to be everything you want for a restaurant experience. Run only by a team of two; a charming gentleman looking after the guests and his wife preparing the food this place epitomised family run. We shared the restaurant with... More

Used TripAdvisors 4.5 plus with more than 100 reviews to guide us to Beny's (not Beni) just a few hundred metres from our apartment. It did not disappoint. Pheasant pene followed by duck (just duck not accompaniment) my wife had prawns and sea bass both great.

Our Airbnb host recommended this place and it was a real hidden gem. To avoid confusion, the place is actually called Beny and not Beni as listed here. The owner was charming and his wine recommendations spot on. And the food absolutely delicious. Would highly recommend the seafood options which were delicious.

One of the best meals we have ever had in our lives. Extremely courteous and friendly owner/staff, even when our son broke a glass bottle on the floor. They refused to let me help clean it. Impeccable wine choices. Our menu consisted of beef tartare, pasta with egg yolk in a white truffle sauce, rack of lamb, and a wonderful... More

I have been to this restaurant for a business dinner with several other colleagues. You often cannot expect that much from pre-organized dinners even if the restaurant is of good quality. This was different. I appreciated the quality of each of the plates served and of the wine ! Food was all good but in particular the eggplant flan and... More

We decided to visit this restaurant on the basis of the tripadvisor hyperbole. I don't have the requisite experience to be able to corroborate the claim that this is the "best restaurant in the world", but it certainly was one of the best meals I've had in a very long time. It was a quiet evening and the small, cosy... More

We entered the restaurant at 7,30pm without a reservation. We were welcomed and shown to a table for two and asked if we would like to have an aperitif on the house. The menu was a gourmet's delight and having chosen our meals, my wife and I settled back to soak in the wonderful atmosphere of the small but atmospheric... More

We started with the appetizer that consisted of a pumpkin mouse with melted pecorino cheese sauce and truffles. It was delicate in texture with explosive flavors that went well together. Then we had a pasta dish called maltagliate that literally means cut badly. It is pieces of flat pasta of diverse shapes and size. This pasta was accompanied with a... More

Just a note of warning. We three middle aged and respectable English tourists attempted to eat at this restaurant on the strong recommendation of our hotel (Royal Victoria). Upon presenting ourselves at the empty restaurant at 7.40pm we were curtly told it was fully booked. Baffled at this we went next door and ate at another restaurant-which was good. However... More
