“Dont believe the Lonely Planet or Michellin reviews”
Reviewed May 5, 2010

The staff were friendly and helpful but unfortunately were badly let down by their kitchen. The portions were small and not at all of the standard promised by the reviews in Lonely Planet and Michellin badges in the windows. On complaining of the poor quality of the Mixed Fish, i.e. no fish! and addition of plastic wrap!! the staff could only say that this was because it was a different regions cuisine! Stay away!

“Good Food - Hilarious english menu”
Reviewed November 19, 2009

My wife and I stayed in Pisa for three nights and the Porton Rosso was our first meal as the Osteria de Cavalieri was full at 7.45! I have to say I don't often write reviews but the meal we had that night was delicious. The steak with rosemary and parmesan was out of this world. The english menu set the scene with what I can only assume was a Babelfish translation. We needed to ask for the italian menu to make sure what we were getting! but everything seemed such fun after that.

I was very dissapointed when we did squeeze into the Cavalieri the food wasn't a patch on Porton and the Vecchio Teatro which I whole heartedly recommend for the adventurous - and empty stomach'd!
