I rarely find a perfect place, this was one to me. I loved it, and for sure will be back again. The only problem would be parking, I was luck to stay in a hotel in walking distance. Parking: Not easy, since in downtown Ambience: Excellent, warm and clean, they also have a nice outdoor area for summer time. Suitable... More

2 hours waiting between the starter was served and the main course! My wife got the starter and the main course at the same time. Before we were served the main course, the waiter asked us whether we wanted dessert... The food is ok but nothing special. They have a real timing issue in their kitchen.

Tucked away down a back street in Pontedera, this was a real gem.I ate a beautifully light crepe with prawns and artichoke cream with a side dish of grilled vegetables.Delicious and different. There was a tasting menu that looked good value so I wish I had been hungrier when I visited. Would recommend booking at weekends.

The waiter produced the wrong wine and promptly decided... More

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... More
