We were recommend this restaurant by the hotel and were very lucky to reserve a table. It was full and we were the only non Italians in the restaurant. Both myself and my husband had pasta and thoroughly enjoyed it. Note :Italian dishes including bacon pieces in Italy tend to be more salty than the UK version of Italian food.

I went around one year ago and I still remember as one of the best restaurants in Pisa. It is important to book.

Came across this restaurant as we left the tower. Decor looked great and it was full in the lunchtime so always a good sign. The menu is in Italian and whilst I appreciate that we could have tried with the language the English speaking waitress went out of her way to be as unhelpful as possible. The ordering process was...

It looks discouraging. Grotty street, grubby exterior. But we decided to trust the good reviews. And what a meal. Until near the end, we were the only non-Italians in a place which is just a few steps away from tourist central. The zucchini flowers, pasta, wine and coffee were all totally enjoyable. The wine turned out to be 8 years... More

Went in here for lunch. It's only a couple of blocks from the leaning tower and the rest of the campo Dei Miracoli. It's not like most of the tourist places right around the campo, which are good for a glass of wine while enjoying the sites Nothing wrong with those places, but if you walk the two blocks to...

Visited withy granddaughter for an evening meal. She is allergic to peanuts and is vegetarian. The staff were so friendly and helpful. We had 3 cheeses to start and although a meat restaurant they had a cheese ravioli. The desserts were amazing. My granddaughter said it the best meal she had had Thanks for a wonderful meal.

The food and atmosphere here was delicious. I would have given five stars, but the attitude of the staff was bordering on terrible. We felt she went out of her way to be rude and as unhelpful as possible. Thankfully the food made the visit worth it. Not sure I would return though.

We only had a day in Pisa after our few days in Florence and Siena. We found La Taverna di Emma. Small restaurant and very crowded during lunch. But we only had to wait for 5 mins. All dishes were awesome! Love their pasta and beef with porcini! Definitely the best meal we had in Italy! Please don't mind that... More
