Tirrena is a sleepy, old-fashioned coastal town, yet our coincidental discovery of 231 made our stop-over there more than worthwhile. We had already tried steamed mussels in Brussels, US East and West coasts, the Hague, Palermo, Barcelona and a whole variety of other places taking pride in their seafood; yet none of them came close to the taste and freshness of Tirreno 231’s little bucket full of them. This was a true feast and we have enjoyed every piece of it. Fried calamari and shrimps platter that followed was equally outstanding.
When we met the chef (and the owner), we knew all this was not by accident – a chef to have cooked for long years in New York, Rio de Janeiro, Brussels and other cities around the world and to have come back to enjoy his hometown. His lovely (Irish) wife is a further bonus for English speakers struggling with the Italian names of ingredients.
Thank you both, for a seafood feast dinner to be remembered for years to come…

We went to this restaurant based on the previous reviews, and found it to be a very enjoyable dining experience. Ordered the stuffed focaccia, as much mentioned by previous reviews, which were delightfully fresh and tasty, followed by the tuna steak which was exceptionally tasty fresh and perfectly cooked, as was the scampi e pistachio chitarra enjoyed by my wife. The wine selection is unpretentious & easy to select as displayed by type and price. Desserts were delicious cream custard with strawberries and sorbert, very good value, nice relaxed atmosphere, perfect 1st night to our stay in Pisa, worth travelling to enjoy truly fresh fish dishes by a chef who is obviously skilled with cooking fish.

Tirrenia is not a very sophisticated place and most restaurants offer the same food.
This reataurant is an exception, as it offers nice food and good wines in an modern atmosphere at very reasonable prices.
The service is friendly but not very efficient.
All in all , a nice place to go when in Tirrenia.

I went in this restaurant with my husband. The athmosphere is quiet and relaxing. They only serve fish (very fresh fish, I would say) stuffed in a very simple way. No fat, no extra flavour, only a good taste of fish (which from my point of view is excellent). Overall, all the courses were very good and light.
