Osteria del Porton Rosso information
Don't be put off by the rather dank alley leading to this busy, tip-top osteria, a block north of the river. Inside it is all style, charm and excellent regional cuisine from the land and the nearby sea. Pisan specialities such as fresh ravioli with salted cod and chickpeas happily coexist with Tuscan classics such as grilled fillet steak, and the €10 lunchtime deal is unbeatable value.
From riverside Lungarno Pacinotti look for the incongruous neon-sign-lit doorway, a faux entrance a couple of doors down from the Real McCoy.
