Voyage through the flavours of Pisa

Vetrina Toscana a Tavola suggests Pisan restaurants that offer traditional dishes made with local products

Tuscany has a rich agricultural tradition with a variety of produce which is native to the region. Alongside the regions best known products are a number of lesser known specialties which are worth discovering. It is with this aim in mind that the Vetrina Toscana a Tavola network was created to promote local dishes made with local products. The restaurants which have joined the network offer traditional menus which rely on Tuscan olive oils and wines, meats and vegetables.

Pisa boasts 79 trattorie, osterie and taverne that are members of the Vetrina Toscana a Tavola. From San Giuliano Terme to Volterra, Montescudaio to San Miniato, these eateries offer gastronomic oases for discovering the true flavours of Tuscany. Each restaurant offers a unique tasting menu, but they all focus on traditional recipes and local wines.

Local classics like pappardelle with wild boar or alla bosciaola reign alongside pork fillet “alle erbette”, cabbage soup, and baccalà with leeks. More specialized dishes are created around local specialties, like duck breast with Lari cherries, San Miniato salumi or Mucco tortelli with a pork ragù.
