We visited this restaurant today before we got on our plane to return to London after 3 weeks in the most amazing country for food and wine. And this was one of the best places to finish off our tour, Four of us, (14 & 16 yr old as well) visited the restaurant at 12. We didn't finish breakfast in San Vincenzo until 9.30 so we didn't feel we were really hungry but we wanted to have a nice experience to finish our holiday.

We were given English Menus but just asked for the Main course of the steak and asked for the waiter advice on the best steak for 4 on the day, he gave us the advice and said the 1.4 steak would be perfect for the four of us, we also ordered rocket and Parmesan to be served with it. We were given a plate of fantastic local ham and bread which looked like enough for about 8 people but it was gone in no time!

The steak was unbelievable and came with roast potatoes, also complimentary was a small chocolate hazelnut mouse to finish the meal,

The waiter and the service was excellent and it was only 5 minutes from the car return in Pisa Airport.

Highly recommend this restaurant

Same franchise got a store close to the tower where the waiter Mario directed us to the "Main" restaurant. He promised us good meat and he didn't lie.... good steak house, service friendly and correct and the mix grill was really good... the location seems strange, between train and highway, but they did good with the restaurant site and it actually not bothered us much... good address

We were here by coincidence while travelling not far away, with the family (three people): rather interestingly, we did phone to make sure the place was open and we were told more or less that yes, there was still a table, as long as we were quick (we got to the place within 15 minutes), and we were no more than three (!): amazingly, the place was almost empty when we got in, but it was fully packed when we left (we could not spot a single empty seat): this alone would be enough to assess this establishment. What is more important, before we get to the food, was that the service was still perfect, despite the large number of customers: the waiters came at the exact times, keeping a very attentive look at the customers, we were very well impressed indeed. Also, the outside does not make justice to this place: the inside is welcoming, with a lot of wood around which makes you feel warm, and with a good view outside.
Food: the place has a very interesting menu, specialized in local recipes, plus some international dishes, and some vegetarian options. Being a local myself, I did appreciate their attempt at using products from local producers (like cheese produced locally). They make a point of using products from the local "San Rossore" park (which includes some farms etc: worth noticing: the same people run a small shop located in Piazza Vittorio Emanuelein central Pisa, very close to the main railwway station, which sells products from the park, like pasta, cheese, jam, honey, mushrooms: the shop is worth checking out, if you happen to stop in central Pisa).
We tried some roasted pork leg with roasted potatoes (excellently done and very tasty), and an Angus hamburger (huge, very good value for momey!) still with roasted potatoes, followed by rather good cakes (I took a truly lovely Banoffee Pie, others had an excellent Tiramisu and a cheesecake), drinking a glass of house wine (which is a commendable red, worth trying). The bill came to a total of 66 euros, which felt really cheap for what we had, and for the attention given to customers, food, ingredients used.

The lady running it was on her own, but was amazing. Spoke perfect Italian, English, German to all the customers. Ran around like crazy keeping everyone happy and the food was absolute perfect.

Fresh plates of local produce, really tasty and excellent value especially so close to such a big tourist attraction. She was also great with our 5yr old, which considering how busy she was, was brilliant.
