We were staying at the inn at Badia a Coltibuono nearby and the staff recommended Papposileno. It's in a former church so lots of atmosphere tucked into a corner of the tiny town of Cavriglia. Our meal started with two huge "crostone" which are an oversize version of bruschetta. Each one took up a whole dinner plate. The first was pumpkin and melted pecorino cheese. The second was indescribably delicious--black cabbage and some local white beans seasoned with olive oil. These two dishes sound simple and they are made with honest, straightforward ingredients but they were unforgettable. For seconds one of us had the maltagliati (odd shaped fresh pasta) with a fresh tomato sauce and the other two shared a veal T-bone steak with shredded lettuce and tomatoes. The portions are large so don't over order. For example the two crostone were more than enough for three. Our waiter spoke good English and gave us recommendations for wineries to visit in the area. No prices on the menu but about par for the area.

Heading our way back home after a day of sightseeing Pisa, we were looking for a restaurant.
We entered Cavriglia and found Papposileno, which initially seemed to be closed. However we were welcomed by a very friendly, well-English speaking waiter and got a table.
Then the surprise started with the quite unique menu and the excellent service and advise given.
The food was excellent and the portions very generous.
The restaurant has a very excentric ambiance, warm and a nice combination of "old & new".
Defenitively one to remember!

This restaurant was recommended to us and we dined there on our last night in Cavriglia. The ambience is just amazing so was the waiter with his local knowledge of wine and food. We immensely enjoyed both.

The food and the wine is excellent at papposileno. Marco will be happy to advise you on what wine to have with your food. The menu is simple but very good, but don't expect any fast food. This is freshly cooked and the service can sometimes be a little slow, but worth the wait
