Description: We mainly offer our guests a typical maritime cuisine, combining tradition and innovation, but never altering our first choice and extremely fresh ingredients. Our main concern is to offer an excellent selection of local meat and cheese paired with a rich wine list (more than 700 varieties) mostly composed by organic, biodynamic, naturally made wines with no chemicals. Not to mention the spirits and liqueurs menu (more than 250 varieties) and a pictured dessert menu daily offering a choice of 15 desserts or more, all beautifully served by the art of food presentation. The availability of the room is about 45-50 people in one room fully accessible to wheelchair users. In summer places increase to about 65 because you can dine outdoors in the beautiful square in front of the room (square of the Ancient Maritime Republics baptized by the municipality at the request of Beppe) lit by torches and candles.

It is two years since I was last here and am really happy that I returned. I think that the cooking is even better. Had some beautiful sea bass and several local dishes. A few new wines on the list. Well worth the walk to find it again.
For the people who have trouble finding this restaurant - go to the Hotel Bologna, cross the road, turn left under a vaulted entry and walk on, the Marinare is just up there on the right. In the summer they have extra seating outside in the square.

This is a restaurant hidden in the maze of streets somewhere between the metro station and the river but it is definitely worth hunting down. It doesn't look like much from the outside but it's charming and cosy when you enter. The owners greeted us on arrival. They took our coats as soon as we arrived and showed us to our seats. They were lovely and welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. The food was good too so all in all, it was a really nice evening.

We found this place by accident. From the outside it looked like a bog standard restaurant. But it was surprisingly special. The food and wine was generally very good. The staff were very friendly and professional. They also had an impressive collection of whisky from all over the world. The atmosphere was warm and buzzing. We had a lovely evening here.

This place is off the beaten path, it is basically down an alley. There is a big red neon arrow on the outside of the building pointing to the door. Once inside you are greeted warmly. The owners are right there to take your coats and seat you. Once inside the room there are 16 tables, I think we counted 64 chairs. The first time we went in, there were only two other tables occupied and we thought we might have made a bad choice. Within the hour it was packed. We did not have a reservation so we felt lucky to get in. The menu has something for everyone. I told the waiter I had celiac and he guided me through the menu like he had clearly done this many times before. We ordered a fantastic bottle of wine and were brought bread, (gluten free for me) and I also got breadsticks which was a nice surprise. The first time we visited we started with the pumpkin shrimp soup. It was steaming hot and amazing. We each got different entrees and were all happy with our choice. The desert menu is a must. While we were there we saw some terrific presentations. One bottle of champagne was brought to the table in a big ice bucket on a trolley with a big silver knife. The waiter cut off the top with one big swing. It was impressive. Also, someone got a beautiful cut of beef that was sliced at the table. Our flight was canceled home and we “had” to stay an extra night in Pisa so we decided to eat here again. It was just as incredible as the first time. My husband actually got two deserts, one to eat the next day. We brought our 12 year old and she was perfectly happy. There were children here every time we came, there is a children’s menu for age 10 and under. It is a very small restaurant so this is not a place for kids if they have trouble sitting still. This would be a great place to go as a small group or for a romantic night out. Make a reservation to be safe. 050 20506

Stunning food and service - very very friendly. We ate there twice on our honeymoon in October 2009 and thoroughly enjoyed the wine and the amazing array of Scotch Whisky
