To enjoy a good lunch or dinner without falling into a tourist trap you are better off to move away from the lovely Piazza dei Miracoli. When walking along the river close by you will find the Piazza Chiara Gambacorti, a buzzling and pleasant square, slightly off the tourist path. Here you will find Il Bistrot, an authentic Italian restaurant without trickeries. Their great
service and attention make it worthwhile to trust their food recommendations. Try their original pasta dishes with different sauces, or the fresh fish combined with a local wine, such as the Chianti Colline Pisane. By the way, do not cut the spaghetti! That is seen as quite a inelegant gesture in Tuscany. And to finish off, try their tiramisu, which is indeed spectacular.
