We were in search of gluten free food and came across this great little restaurant. They were readily able to nominate a range of great gf option which I've come to believe is a marker of a good restaurant these days. The food was superb- even the gf pasta was truly delicious - big flat ribbons with clams, squid and... More

At the recommendation of my hotel, in response to finding a good fish restaurant, I went here. The restaurant is well-located in a street off one of the important plazas in Pisa, with several other restaurants nearby. The decor is subtle and well-done, without the kitsch of many places that scream they sell fish. I wanted to start with a... More

These people know how to cook. We had our best wild boar ever! Congratulations to the chef. Their choice of red wine to go with it was also excellent. A memorable evening.

We were a party of 8 persons on an evening meal out after a business meeting. The host was very nice and friendly and accommodated us as a group very nicely. The food was superb, freshly cooked and plentiful, the whole atmosphere of the restaurant was excellent.

The "Menu di Terra" ("Land Food" tasting menu) was particularly good, and at 35 EUR it is very reasonably priced compared to separately ordering the 4 courses.

Loved everything that we ate: the fried dough with finely sliced local ham; lightly battered fish, flying squid and vegetables; pasta with squid and artichokes; calvados torte with sauce; and the creamy pistachio ice cream with sauce. However, the service was really slow -- beyond the delay that it takes to prepare fresh food. Nobody checked back with us to... More
