This is a small restaurant just off the Piazza dei Cavlieri, with a nice atmosphere, great food and wine, and friendly service. Six of us headed here for a meal on our first evening in Pisa and we went for the full three-course (four in some cases!) works. The food was great - lovely, fresh, rustic Tuscan specialities. The spaghetti... More

We enjoyed our lunch at La Sosta. I wouldn't call it a great meal, but it was certainly very good. My wife had fish, while I had a pasta with a traditional meat sauce of the region. Our servers helped my wife (who steers clear of milk products) make her selections, and they were attentive and efficient.

I chose La Sosta for my 71st birthday dinner. Very atmospheric cosy restaurant with friendly and efficient staff. Excellent food from an imaginative menu. Watch the patron scale the floor to high ceiling wine racks to retrieve customers' selections. Extensive wine list to match. I was delighted with our experience.

We were recommended this restaurant by our AirBnB host Matteo and we were not disappointed! The ambience was perfect; very cosy and friendly. The staff were very accommodating even though we didn't have a reservation. 2 starters, 2 mains and a bottle of chianti came to €72. These guys are great so you must pay them a visit!

The food was well presented and excellent.The venue is well decorated. However, the service was rushed giving us the impression that we were occupying a table which they wanted to give to someone else and were glad when we left!

Stopped for quick lunch. Nice (indoor) setting with air con, really welcoming service, delicious food - good steak and really fresh sea food. Washed down with a good chianti Classico (a bargain at 20 euros).

We were in search of gluten free food and came across this great little restaurant. They were readily able to nominate a range of great gf option which I've come to believe is a marker of a good restaurant these days.
