Strong four star restaurant. We find fish baked in salt keeps it moist but this is not commonly offered. Had it here and it was great. Also found starters and desserts very good. They get busy so reserve before you go.

Traveling to Pisa for the first time, we just found this restaurant by accident. Seafood is excellent and very well prepared - not overcooked, not raw and just enough to still taste the freshness of the seafood. We brought our three kids with an 8...More

This restaurant is just over the bridge in South Pisa but well worth the walk from the duomo. It has a good atmosphere and friendly service. We had the fish ravioli and the tuna and both were excellent.
