Take less than ten minutes to walk away from the tourists and enter this inviting, family-run restaurant! The hosts were very warm and kind, taking pride in ensuring that their guests enjoy an authentic meal served at the perfect pace. The boar pappardelle and main dish were excellent, as was the wine and tiramisu made with love by the hostess.

If you’re looking for a delicious, simple, non-touristy meal in Pisa, go to Ristorante da Mario, a delightful old trattoria off the beaten path but less than a five-minute walk from the Tower. Lunch was not crowded on a Wednesday, and almost everyone there was a local. Our waitress had been there for 35 years (the first 25 as the chef) and was passionate about the food that she was serving. We started with a delicious appetizer — sliced bread with smokey, melted Scamorza cheese, topped with grilled eggplant and zucchini. When our next courses were taking longer than she wanted them to, our waitress brought us each a healthy slice of bruschetta (toasted bread with olive oil, tomatoes, and fresh basil). We shared Risotto with Taleggio cheese and Veal Scallopine with fresh mushrooms, both of which were fabulous. The house-made Tiramisu couldn’t be skipped and, as full as we were, we both ate every bite. As we were leaving, our waitress answered some questions and shared a little of the history of the building and the restaurant — we were treated like friends and wish we were here longer so we could go again

Called in here during particularly hot spell in Pisa for supper, very friendly welcoming hosts, nicely air conditioned, authentic Tuscan feel to this quaint restaurant. Ordered steaks and fish, from the menu with sides of spinach and chips. All good and enjoyable, steak a bit rare for my liking but eaten by my fellow diners. Service nice and slow by lovely lady owner, would definitely call again. Thank you.

Excellent food. We had a lovely tuscan platter which was quite big. The baccala was really good. For wine the host Mario suggested the house wine and even gave us a taste. We were not disappointed as it was just lovely not to mention the cantuccini which we dipped in the wine. Was a pleasure eating there and chatting to Mario. Will go back.
