Lunch at Numeroundici in Pisa, Italy

Numeroundici restaurant Pisa

Numeroundici located at Via S. Martino, 47, 56125 Pisa PI in Italy

September 7, 2018:   We had the best lunch here in Pisa, Italy!  Sometimes, the best spots really are those that you stumble upon in small cities.  We came across this unassuming cafeteria-style restaurant called Numeroundici when the one that we originally wanted to go to wasn’t open (thanks Google Maps :/). We were hungry from our four-hour train ride and this place was open for lunch.

The staff at Numeroundici provided us with an English menu from which we ordered.  After ordering, we selected a table to sit at and when the food was ready, we retrieved it from the counter.  The balance of the meal was paid at the very end of the meal when we finished.  There was a counter with jugs for water, water glasses, napkins, utensils, side plates, olive oil, salt and pepper, and other condiments.  It was a very cozy place for a casual lunch.

We ordered two mains and two sides and two drinks as well as bread.  The Italian tripe was something we wanted to try last night at Augusto but it was only available on Saturdays, so this opportunity turned out to be perfect.

The Italian Tripe (the first time I’ve had it) came in a huge portion (all of the dishes were ample) and was so tender and smooth.  It was seasoned with chili oil but didn’t taste spicy to me at all.  It was even better than all the tripe I’ve had during dim sum at Chinese restaurants!  This was such an amazing comfort food dish!

OMG this was the best

Risotto with Peppers

The Risotto with Peppers was great.  The risotto was al dente and the saffron sauce that came with it was perfect.  A generous sprinkle of freshly ground cheese really made the risotto taste even better.

The Chicory (we have loved this ever since having it on the second night at Sant’Andrea‘s) was great — this one tasted a bit bitter actually while the Zucchini was chopped up and soft to eat.  These were perfect vegetable sides!

The bread here was so good as well and really soft yet firm.  It was my ideal texture of bread.  Because it was so soft and dense, it went so well with not only the authentic olive oil and balsamic vinegar dip, but also the flavourful tripe as well.

This was a perfectly balanced meal that surprised me so much.  It was such a great comfort food and delicious meal! 😀  (The prices were super fair too.)

BEST MEAL EVER!

This restaurant is 100% self service so you can serve yourself the (free) water, cutlery, place mat, olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and also clean up after yourself too.
