We are pleased to have come upon this intimate restaurant (thanks to Viamichelin). Outstanding food and an impressive winelist where we were able to find an old gem. Ettore, the proprietor is as pleasant as they come.

Pisa is a great place to eat. It's all too easy to get a poor meal and pay a lot for it in Florence. This restaurant is among the very best. The spaghetti with rabbit and asparagus sauce was the most wonderful, glorious pasta this...More

We came here because of the central location (steps away from the town square and the Arno), the good reviews on TripAdvisor, and the menu which looked appealing. Also, this place has been mentioned by the Micheline Guide for 10 years straight. To sum it...More

The " Osteria dei Cavalieri " (The knight’s tavern) is situated in the historical heart of Pisa, a few steps away from the homonymous square and from the famous Piazza dei Miracoli, in a setting full of alleys where time seems to have stood still.In the Osteria it is still possible to leave the table with a festive feeling, captured not only through a meal but also through the enjoyed experience. A place that unites, in a relaxing and warm atmosphere,the most sincere tuscan dishes and refined, always creatively interpreted gastronomical suggestions.A working meal where you talk and in the meantime taste typical dishes while trying creative and inventive combinations made according to the strongest cooking tradition of Tuscany. A pleasant dinner in which you’ll be captured step by step by flavors and solutions offered by the chef and staff of the Osteria dei Cavalieri.All of this is possible in the historical heart of the city of Pisa, a few steps away from the marvellous Piazza dei Cavalieri, the famous tower and Piazza dei Miracoli. The entrance hall of the restaurant is the base of a tower house of 1200.The tables are framed by a characteristic stone ledge: light is shadowing, becomes misty and intimate, thus favouring conversation. In such an environment it is not difficult to lose oneself in unique wine and gastronomic experience. For sure this will grant the occasional visitor a memory, as is the case with the locals, who return time after time in the certainty of being surprised once again.The dishes and menus of the Osteria are born in a climate of perfect balance between innovation and tradition combined with a remarkable choice from a winecellar rich in discoveries and grand classics.
