As Pisa is close to Florence (approx. 1h20 minute bus drive), we decided to book a tour and go there an afternoon. For sure, we could not miss seeing the leaning tower.
This construction that was built over 199 years starting in 1173 is impressive with its tilt that makes you wonder how in the world it is still standing.
So, before the tour that left at 1:30pm, we had to find a restaurant. We ended up at Il Salimbecco, located across the Capelle Medicee.
We sat outside, at the terrace, as the weather was pretty nice.
We started off our lunch with bruschetta e fettunta con extra vergine Toscano or bruschetta with tomato, garlic and olive oil:
This is a very simple dish that was refreshing.
Then, Jodi got the pizza Tartufata that is with mozzarella, truffle, porcini mushrooms and fresh tomatoes:
This was a disappointing pizza, being very soggy and the mushrooms having a weird texture.
On my side, I had fettucine Alfredo that I only saw in this restaurant while in Florence.
This dish was just ok, the sauce being a bit grainy.
So, you can guess that we were not that thrilled about that lunch. I would definitely pass the next time...
