“Only one open on Monday evening”
Reviewed April 25, 2012

As this was the only one open there was no choice to go here. I know it is predominately a fish restaurant but there was no dish on the menu which didn't have fish, no problem for me but my wife is a vegetarian and found nothing to eat. very disappointing. The waiter produced the wrong wine and promptly decided to spill a large amount onto the table when he poured it. Overall I think the place was overpriced for what we had.

“Excellent seafood restaurant with lovely internal garden”
Reviewed September 10, 2010

I first had the pleasure of dining at La Polveriera in the mid 90s and have remembered it ever since. Then I was the guest of a local theatre artist, treated to the chef's favorite wines and seafood creations, including an exceptional pasta with frutti di mare. More recently, I ate here twice during a business trip to Pontedera, since the experience was so delightful my colleague and I were eager to return. The interior is comfortable and attractively decorated, with brick walls and warm colors, but in warm months nothing compares to the courtyard seating where you can enjoy an exquisite meal under a starry sky. The 2 Euro cover charge includes a glass of the fine house prosecco along with a selection of tasty breads and focaccia. Seafood dishes are the highlight here, including an amazing main dish of cod with crispy pancetta in a Grand Marnier sauce and fillet of turbot all'isolana. Don't miss the chocolate flan, a perfect ending to a delightful meal.
