Very nice food. Every day is a different menu based on fresh fish catch of the day. Therefore the is no actual menu but the waiter gives the daily choices. Its quite small so its good to make reservation especially friday and saturday in the summer.

I wish it'd happen more frequently to realize that we've visited that new place ... for the twentieth time.

Tirreno 231 is one of those places on a mission: great raw ingredients are used to paint geometric starters, pastas, main courses with seafood, fruit, fish.

Weren't they so good, you could frame them, as long you're willing - we are - to trust a different esthetic for the time of a dinner.

Tirrena is a sleepy, old-fashioned coastal town, yet our coincidental discovery of 231 made our stop-over there more than worthwhile. We had already tried steamed mussels in Brussels, US East and West coasts, the Hague, Palermo, Barcelona and a whole variety of other places taking pride in their seafood; yet none of them came close to the taste and freshness of Tirreno 231’s little bucket full of them. This was a true feast and we have enjoyed every piece of it. Fried calamari and shrimps platter that followed was equally outstanding.
When we met the chef (and the owner), we knew all this was not by accident – a chef to have cooked for long years in New York, Rio de Janeiro, Brussels and other cities around the world and to have come back to enjoy his hometown. His lovely (Irish) wife is a further bonus for English speakers struggling with the Italian names of ingredients.
Thank you both, for a seafood feast dinner to be remembered for years to come…

We went to this restaurant based on the previous reviews, and found it to be a very enjoyable dining experience. Ordered the stuffed focaccia, as much mentioned by previous reviews, which were delightfully fresh and tasty, followed by the tuna steak which was exceptionally tasty fresh and perfectly cooked, as was the scampi e pistachio chitarra enjoyed by my wife. The wine selection is unpretentious & easy to select as displayed by type and price. Desserts were delicious cream custard with strawberries and sorbert, very good value, nice relaxed atmosphere, perfect 1st night to our stay in Pisa, worth travelling to enjoy truly fresh fish dishes by a chef who is obviously skilled with cooking fish.
