“Fabulous dining experience with the chef a maestro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2011

Loved this restaurant. It was in country, 4.5 k from our Golden Tulip Galilei hotel on Aurelia Sud. Opens at 8 pm (closed Monday-Tuesday). The large dining room had as its focal attraction a giant wood fire grill. The maestro/chef worked at his prep table in plain sight and then threw the various items on the grill. Meat was the main focal point. We actually had a vegetarian antipasto, which was four kinds of appetizers: a mushroom tart; pumpkin with almonds; a quiche; and squash. All delicious. Skipped (first course and did second course, which is the meat. We had chicken, and a beef that was cut in thin slices, topped with watercress and pomegranate sauce. Delicious. The only suggestion is decrease salt. Everything--bruschetta; mushroom tart; main courses--was over salted. Still tasting the salt in the night. There is an unnecessary bread basket placed on table at start; don't bother. The bruschetta--brushed with garlic, tomato and sprinkled with oregano is fabulous. No credit cards! The foreward to the menu states the restaurant philosophy unequivocally: no coke or fanta; please turn off cell phones; mind the children. In other words, enjoy the dining experience, which is just what a Slow Food place should be about. In summary, terrific show at the grill and great food. The house wine was fine, too.

“Member of the "Slow Food" Community”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2009

We've selected Re di Puglia because it'smember of the "Slow Food" Community and is recommended in the "Osterie d'Italia" guide.

It's a farm house outside Pisa, next to the Pisa/NATO airport. You'll sit on a nice terrace where you can observe how the cooks are preparing your meat (big barbeque). Yes, the arriving aircrafts can be a bit loud - but the food is fore sure one of the better choices in the Tuscany.

The "chef of service" is very friendly and even the menu is in Italian only he'll help you out in case you don't know the language.

The Antipasti were very nice. First they bring you some home-made Ricotta with some grilled bread, then we had an exelent selction of mixed meat (ham) and cheese from the goat plus some mixed crostinies. For pasta we selected some kind of Ravioli filled with Ricotta cheese and some Gnocci with Zuchini. For main course we've shared a perfect Tagliata from horse meat with some grilled potatoes. As a finish we selected a cake of pear in chocolate sauce and a peach cake.

Including water, a glass of red wine and some soft drinks we've paid € 69.00 for two persons.


I can really recommend this place for good food and friendly service.
