Superb and well worth a visit

As many have already said, ignore the area and the outside and you will be rewarded with great service and superb food at a ridiculously reasonable price. A must visit if you are staying in Pisa.

This is a wee gem if you are eating out in Pisa . It's a wee bit of the main streets but well worth visiting . The food is first class reasonably priced and the owners go well out of their way to insure you enjoy your meal ... We picked this up on trip advisor and agree with all... More

Stopped by here during my few hours before my next train. While Pisa seems fairly lame to other more exquisite locations in Italy (seriously, the leaning tower and other attractions around it takes like 5 mins, there are tons of people, and well, there are far more interesting locations in Italy than Pisa), this restaurant was refreshingly local, close the...

We stayed in a hotel near the train station and this restaurant is close by. Like some other reviewers, we were a bit apprehensive as the surrounding area isn't great and it feels as though the restaurant is up a bit of a back street. But, we ate here on our first night in Italy and enjoyed it so much... More

Was apprehensive at first as the area immediately outside the restaurant is not that great. But when the food arrived my mind was put to rest and the cuttlefish ink risotto is truely the best risotto we have had. Thanks for a great meal we will be recommending to friends and will be back if we revisit Pisa.

It is really nice place and happy old man and lady took care of us, both were nice and friendly. It feels like you're guest in their home. We ordered pasta and taste really good. Not typical tourist restaurant. Recommended.

Wonderful, wonderful small restaurant that was a couple of blocks from where we were staying. The owner welcomed us himself and made sure that we were all comfortable at our table. He spent some time talking about his experiences and actually chose the wine to match up with our food selections. Our experience was so wonderful we went back again... More

Great food ( the skewered prawns in chive sauce is a must try, squid ink risotto and Livornese style fish were cooked to perfection too !) at a reasonable price. Nice atmosphere. Lovely owners who were attentive. It's a hidden gem near Pisa Centrale. Would highly recommend it !!!
