Tucked away in a back street, you are unlikely to find this unless recommended. Busy with tourists, very friendly service. Good family-style home cooking. A few minutes from the the rail station.

A wonderful experience from start to finish! The restaurant is run by a welcoming charming couple, the place is modestly decorated but cosy, comfortable and peaceful. It was so good to be able to hold a conversation without having to compete with any kind of music! The restaurant is suitable for all ages and can be also booked for parties.... More

After travelling all day from Germany we arrived in Pisa in time to walk to the Leaning Tower at sunset and then look for a restuarant near Hotel La Pace by the train station. The concierge recommended Lo Schiaccianoci for good Tuscan home cooked food. It did not disappoint! The House white and red wines were admirable. We had carpace... More

Sometimes, when you are traveling for work, you need a safe place, where to eat genuine food, at a reasonable price, in a simple ambiance, with nice people serving you. This is exactly how I feel with regard to the "Sciaccianoci". A safe place, where I ate genuine and simple food (like my mother would cook it!), an extraordinary antipasto,... More

I stumbled upon this restaurant purely on the recommendation of the receptionist at my hotel and it was a real find. Lovely food, generous portions and the staff were incredibly friendly (even showing me where the nearest cashpoint was when I embarrassingly discovered that I only had a €10 note on me). Important point: this place only takes cash!

The best place I have ever eat in! Giovanni and his wife are very familiar people. You can choose fish or meat and the result will be a dream! Starters are extremely delicious and very traditional dessert are always available! Simply the Best!

Went with 5 people for an evening meal that was recommended by NH Cavaliere. We asked for some sweet wine like a Moscatel and received a very dry white wine that I did not drink. The rest of the group finished the bottle and poured sprite in it. We had mixed salads and pasta dishes with no deserts. The food... More

The restaurant suggested by the friends from La Pace hotel is very close to the hotel. Simple atmosphere, simple but abundant and very tasty dishes at affordable prices, great host Mr. Giovanni, even if not wordy but very attentive and complaisant. Nice pasta al cinghiale, great bolognese and all other things are very good.

Many locals use this restaurant, whose propriator has lived in Florida & therefore has an excellent command of English, mixed with a wry sense of humour. Both food & wine are excellent value. We dined here every night for 7 days. It's popular, so it's best to get there early - 7pm.
