The food and atmosphere here was delicious. I would have given five stars, but the attitude of the staff was bordering on terrible. We felt she went out of her way to be rude and as unhelpful as possible. Thankfully the food made the visit worth it. Not sure I would return though.

We only had a day in Pisa after our few days in Florence and Siena. We found La Taverna di Emma. Small restaurant and very crowded during lunch. But we only had to wait for 5 mins. All dishes were awesome! Love their pasta and beef with porcini! Definitely the best meal we had in Italy! Please don't mind that... More

The food is good, the restaurant not very big, reservation highly recommended. The menu is only available in italian but translation in english provided by the waitress. Starters are mostly 12 EUR, main dishes 15 EUR. Extensive wine list.

We tried to get in at 8 o'clock by queuing outside (it opens at 8). It was too full even for just the 2 of us. Booked to go back the next night. The food was excellent, as was the wine. The staff were a bit short-handed - everyone arrives at 8 so they can't really spread out the ordering/cooking... More

What a place, best food we've had all week. The food is the same as the restaurant, no-nonsense but exquisite quality at a good price. No English menus but one of the waiters speaks good English and is happy to take her time to explain it all in true Italian fashion.

We dined here last night on recommendation of the receptionist at the local hotel Rosso De Serra. This was the best meal we had whilst in Tuscany, friendly service, the waitress even went through the whole menu in English for us. We had Ravioli to share and the Ribeye for mains, both amazing! We loved the little touch of complimentary... More

It is in a relatively obscure corner of Pisa but very close to the Tower. There were a number of very interesting versions of ravioli and service were very good. It was very busy even on a Monday evening so make sure to make a reservation.

Small restaurant a short walk from the leaning 0tower. The opposite way from the tourist restaurants. Fabulous food based on Tuscan cusine. Took their time but kept us happy with a starter to die for. Menu only in Italian but a good tanslation by a waitress who spoke excellent English

This place came highly recommended by Alessia at 4Rooms B&B and after checking out the reviews on Trip Advisor we thought we would give it a try for dinner on a Saturday night. It isn't located in the more touristy pedestrianised area of the centre and on first impression from outside we were a bit unsure. There was no website... More
