A charming restaurant in a residential area, so off the main tourist beat. it appeared to be very popular with locals and, having eaten, it was easy to understand why. great for a casual meal or a more formal occasion.

Restaurant Galileo is an elegant dining room with attractive table coverings, fresh flowers, paintings and prominent wooden wine storage containers. The food was terrific with outstanding focaccia to begin and complimentary dessert wine served with Tuscan cookies to finish. As travellers, we particularly enjoyed seeing local families come to dine and greet the owner's family, plus the owner sit outside... More

What a nice surprise to find this lovely restaurant on the stylish Via San Martino open on a Sunday evening. Our hotel recommended this spot as "not touristy," and they were right. Actually, very little English was spoken, though we managed to communicate very well with our charming waiter. He recommended a Monsanto chianti classico riserva which was delicious! As... More

We had 15 days from Pisa to Rome taking in the sites and the cuisine. Nowhere surpassed the overall meal we had at this establishment. It was clean fresh flavours, good service, nice setting, loved by the local foodies. Would go back tomorrow for Wild Forrest Pork - WOW.

We had an amazing meal in this restaurant, it had been recommended to us by our accommodation hostess. What a find. The food, atmosphere, staff... we could not find fault. We met Marco, who could not have been more welcoming or pleasant, and he was great fun too, our 10 year old son fell in love with him (two peas... More

This restaurant was recommended by the receptionist of our hotel. The place looks a bit posh but it is in fact quite welcoming and friendly. The staff was discreet but helpful at the same time. The food was classic and good.

Galileo was recommended by the folks at the hotel we stayed in (Alessandro della Spina, subject of another review) for authentic local food. We were not disappointed. Opted for the 4 course tasting menu (a glass of wine included) and had a truly enjoyable meal at a very reasonable price (55 Euro for two including the additional carafe of house... More

We had a great dinner here. Best focaccia i've ever tried in Italy. Seafood pasta was excellent, everything seemed very fresh. Friendly staff :)

Enjoyed a fantastic dinner here last night, selecting a fixed priced menu that included a glass of wine, leek flan with cheese sauce, ravioli with meat sauce and filet of beef with salad and roasted potatoes culminated with biscotti and sweet dessert wine for 25 euros apiece. The servings were very generous; more than we could eat in fact, and... More
