Near the Tower and Good

Even being surrounded by a crush of tourists (its only a couple of blocks from the tower) this little place served a great lunch. Pasta, bread, salad, vino. Great stuff and reasonably priced.

Service was ok, but the pizza was awful, undoubtedly not something you can expect in Italy. And the coke wasn't better (draft and not sparkling). We didn't dare going for desserts...

We last visited Pisa around 2 years ago and while exploring around the Tower, we spotted this little restaurant with a Tripadvisor rating in the window. It was a nice meal (reviewed here also) so when we returned to Pisa, we decided to pop in again for the amazing mushroom pasta. The sign was still in the window however, the... More

I had seafood linguine, a mixed salad and a wine - all were nice, although the seafood was perhaps a little bit crunchy/sandy. And perhaps a little pricey?

We went to peperoncino tonight and had a good time. Sitting outside there is nice and the service was helpful and friendly. I had spaghetti bolognese which was yummy and big, my boyfriend had the seafood menu which was also very good and enormous portions. We enjoyed ourselves and would go again.

Being near the tower I knew we would have tourist traps around, and hoped to have decent food even if overpriced, due to location. We didn't spend much time choosing, good rating here, a free table so we went there. Food was really below average ("risotto", a pretty bad pizza and bad mixed seafood), service was slow and they often... More

We went to pizza the 31st of July and went looking after a nice Italian restaurant. We arrived at IL Peperoncino after a long discussion. Our conclusion is that this is one of the best restaurants that we ever had during our stay in Italy. Also while being in Pisa which is a tourist city, the price is incredible. I... More

Great restaurant down the street, away from the busy crowd. We ate amazing first courses and ordered 3 menus. Excellent quality for a good competitive price. Owners are very friendly and serve you with pleasure

We have been to Pisa many times but have always avoided the area around to tower to eat. Having read the revenues for II Peperoncino we decide to give it a try. We went on the evening of the world cup final and had a great night, great atmosphere with a mix of both young and old! Food was very... More
