We went here based on Trip Advisor reviews and location. It was wonderful. We have had many meals in Italy. This is one of the best. We had all courses and all were superb. Whatever you try we believe you will not be disappointed. The...More

Used previous Trip Advisor reviews to find this. Glad we did. We sat in the little square and were served by a lovely Italian girl who was studying Law at Pisa University. The food was excellent and there was a good choice. We ate early...More

After a disastrous dinner the previous evening in Pisa, our dining experiences were remedied by a wonderful evening with an outside table at this bistro. The square itself was full of life, the steaks were unbelievable value and well cooked, and accompanied by a great...More

Somebody told me that there weren't good places to have dinner in Pisa. Absolutely wrong! Here you are an excellent one with very reasonable price and best service. Congratulations!

On a recent stop over we decided to eat at Il Bistrot. Upon arrival we thought the atmosphere was really nice and homely. The restaurant seats about 24 and it was nearly full. We sat down and ordered drinks obviously my wife ordered an Aperol...More

We stopped here for a rest during a leisurely amble through the streets on a warm spring Sunday. 3 hours later we had enjoyed homemade pasta, pizza and delicious desserts. We were made to feel very welcome, not rushed at all and thoroughly enjoyed relaxing...More

A nice find. Great for just a drink and something light or a great lunch or evening meal. Not standard fair of pizza and basic pasta like too many others, rather the menu is refreshingly different (try the gnocchi with vongole and the braised pork...More

The food was delicious, the service was great and the list of wines impressive. They also had 4-5 red wines by the glass (and probably similar number of whites), for those who'd rather taste more variations instead of getting a bottle. The bill can easily...More

We ate here twice and were delighted with the service and the food. The atmosphere is welcoming and relaxed. On both nights the restaurant was busy with local people dining. The pork fillet with gorgonzola sauce was a big hit with my husband. The decor...More

The bistro of my dreams is the little tiny restaurant; it’s the cute shop where you can go for a coffee or a glass of wine. It’s a place where you can eat the traditional Italian dish, sip a good wine and meet your people. It’s a place where you can chat while eating spaghetti, while learning secrets, sipping a “brunello”, or a grappa while listening to music or reading a book. Where love gets done and undone. And coffee. Where you’re early and it gets late. Here you are in my home. You are my guests and friends among friends. Here is my piano and my guitar, my books, my music; here’s the best recipe my mom gave me, and some biscotti and my grandpa’s Vinsanto wine.
