Arsella restaurant is located in an old stilt hous building over a sand beach. You look at the seaside while eating. Food is what yu would expect. Traditional, yet excellent. We had a special starter, with all kind of shellfish, clams and seafood. As it was a lunch, we had just a dish of pasta each. Spaghetti with vongole veraci... More

We walked past a number of restaurants on the sea front if the Pisa Marina and decided upon this as there were a few people in there and we were hungry and thirsty. The waiter wanted a decision of what we wanted almost immediately and seemed rather hurried to get our order in, so we di not really have much... More

With friends and kids, it has been a pleasure to eat there. Second time we try the food there in less than a month and really like it. Style is fisherman house on the sea. Food is of course around sea food + pasta/risotto. All we tried was very good and fresh. You can have the kids going playing on... More

My wife and I had a magnificent lunch here a few days ago overlooking a turbulent sea, the dramatic setting added to the occasion. We have had many excellent meals at L'Arsella, normallywith better weather in spring or autumn. We always try to fit in a visit whenever we fly into Pisa Airport nearby. The restaurant is on the seafront... More

A good fish restaurant in Marina di Pisa, nothing fancy but really solid when it comes to food. It has a nice view over the sea if you get the seats!

My partner and I dined her on a recommendation from friends and we were not disappointed .The food was very good and very romantic as we watched the sun going down across the sea.

I love their pasta vongole! This is a relaxed place with very good traditional food. Perfect for a day when you don't want to sit outside. One of my favourite all-year-round restaurants in Marina di Pisa.

I had the antipasto platter which was a divided platter full of fresh seafood: mussels, sea snails, octopus, shrimp, sardines. I nearly filled up on just this, it was so tasty. For my main I shared a grilled fish platter with family. This item is not on the menu - the fried fish platter is. Just ask for it grilled.... More

We had high hopes for a lovely restaurant by the sea but as soon as we were met by the miserable and rude waitress we knew not to expect anything but the worst. We had spaghetti vongole which had hardly any clams in it (my English mother makes a better meal than that.) Loads of food was unavailable on the... More

Tip: reserve a sea-view table, order antipastissimo. It'll be great. L'Arsella is my favourite restaurant in Marina di Pisa. It's an old restaurant, and food is also kind of old-style. The place and the people are relaxed and genuine. Antipastissimo is a nice surprise... and the other dishes are also good. Pasta allo scoglio is delicious.

Thank Claudia R
