Our hotel (La Pace) recommended this restaurant to us as a nearby establishment within walking distance from the hotel. It is near the main train station. Bottom line, the food was local cuisine and outstanding. We were a party of 5 adults and each ordered something different: veal with mushrooms, veal with a lemon sauce, risotto, pasta with white clam... More

After reading the reviews and realising it was quite close to our hotel, we came here on our first night in Pisa. The food was beautifully cooked, the house wine was really good and excellent value for money. We returned on our last night in Pisa.

May have been in the same evening as David D below. Witnessed either the same situation or, what I thought at the time, the owner refusing a tip. Either way it was a very nice gesture. Regarding the food - best I had all week. Great pasta and fish, well cooked and good portion sizes. Total bill for 2 €48.... More

Lovely staff. Really rustic. Simple but tasty food. Good lager. Good portion size. Lots of choice on the menu. Lots of Italians not too many tourists.

What a surprise it was eating at Lo Schiaccianoci! As a family of 7 we received a welcome as if we were close family friends, our waiter was very friendly and patient with our 5 children (who actually behaved fairly well), he took special care of us and was fast with our drinks and bread while we decided on our...

My husband ordered a glass of wine and I didn't. The owner brought me some anyways and said nobody should drink alone and "salut!" We entered as customers and... More
