“Two Thumbs. Way UP!”
Reviewed 28 August 2011

Great food, helpful staff, cheap beer...what more could you want?

We ordered two platters of meats, cheeses and salad, a plate of the most incredible gorganzola bruchetta ever and a couple of beers...20 euro. Snap!

Go off the beaten track for a tasty snack.
Trust me.

“Best beer and simple food in Pisa”
Reviewed 18 August 2011

There are very few places in Pisa to get a simple evening meal. Orzo Bruno is great for that (mostly panini, salads, soups etc.) The beer is great (5ish on offer), prices good, and staff very helpful (also English speaking if needed). You might well walk past at first thinking it's not so enticing, but step inside and you'll have a really good time.

“Excellent beer”
Reviewed 24 August 2010

The main fact is that they have the best handmade beer in Tuscany.
Montemagno is a rich red ale w/ honey (my choice)
Gorgona (blonde double malt) is still a good one, while Montemagno is somehow too weak
Paninis €4 - 5.5
Dishes €6 - 8
All food from fair trade.

“Very good, but slow beer”
Reviewed 26 July 2010

First, if you are looking for something to eat, although Orzo Bruno does have a limited number of eats, it is probably best experienced solely for the beer, which is excellent. They had five different styles on tap and each was above average. And the beer is downright cheap compared to other establishments in Pisa. What's not to love?

The only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 was the very long time it takes to get a beer. This is strictly due to the pouring style they utilize. Learn how to tap a beer!

Atmosphere was awesome. I wish we would have come back here.

“Good beer, lively pub”
Reviewed 3 November 2009

We always go to Orzo Bruno when we go out for a beer, because it's a microbrewery. The beer is good and the atmosphere is lively. It's always very busy so it might be difficult to find a table. It's worth a try though.
