So hospitable

Great food and reasonably priced wine list (all really good quality). Superb host/owner showing the same high level of attention to all customers. Really worth a visit and I recommend taking his advice on the daily 'specials'

We found this place thanks to TripAdvisor. Great food (check the pork al funghi, awesome dish!), the wine was good. The deserts were awesome too: ask for the homemade Tiramisú, It was the best Tiramisú I ever had). The owner is great too, as soon as he learnt we were from Spain he nicely tried to talked to us in... More

My family and I took a break here for lunch after visiting the Leaning Tower. It's not too far from the tourist area, but far enough that it's not too crowded. The waiter was very friendly and explained everything to us nicely. The dishes were great, especially the seafood pasta! The atmosphere was also very nice. Great little place, highly... More

All the food was incredible and the servers spoke very good English, best food I've had in any touristic area of Italy! Also trust ur server on wine recommendations, the wine we had was... More

My teenage son and I visited Pisa on Christmas morning and stopped by here for lunch on the way back to the train station. There were many other places open on Christmas day but we were glad we came here. The owner is the nicest, friendliest host. He explained the ingredients in each item to make sure we know what...

Found this charming restaurant on a day trip to Pisa. It is right on the street that is filled with restaurants making it hard to chose a restaurant. This restaurant is about a 5 minute walk from the tower. It is a family owned restaurant with the father and daughter taking care of customers and the mother in the kitchen... More

The owner is by far the friendliest host we have met on our day trip to Pisa. Between the four of us we had the chianti risotto, seafood spaghetti, sausage and porcini mushroom pizza and a pollo salad. The food was fresh and cooked to perfection! The desserts (tiramisu and pannacotta) were both amazing too! This place is underrated and... More
