Choosing somewhere to eat in Italy is always going to be a difficult task, but the L’Ostellino is the Number One restaurant in Pisa, according to trusted source Trip Advisor, so it could be a good place for you to start! This small, cosy yet unpretentious bistro is perfect for light lunches and quick stops, with paninis galore and more wines than you could possibly wish to choose from! Their selection of cheeses and meats is extensive and you can guarantee you’ll be making more than one visit here while you’re in Pisa.
For a buster-size gourmet panino (sandwich) wrapped in crunchy waxed paper, this miniscule deli and panineria (sandwich shop) with just a handful of tables delivers. Take your pick from dozens of different combos written by hand on the blackboard (lardo di colonnata with figs or cave-aged pecorino with honey and walnuts are sweet favourites), await construction, then hit the green lawns of Piazza dei Miracoli to picnic with the crowds.
