Il Bistrot


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

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.

We also found this restaurant on our last night in Pisa, shame as it is excellent. The food, ambience and service ( thank you Josephine) was the highlight of our stay.

Even though it was really busy, we were served perfectly. Enrico was the man that even made someone he knows fix sigarettes for me. The food and wine were delicious and not pricy. We ate and drunk a lot with two for €70! I recommend!

Sorry, I don't know either. Maybe you could email them and ask (I believe their email address is on their website)
