Off the beaten track quite close to the train station, seems to be popular with the locals. Had mixed starters - with at twist, not the usual cold cuts. Friendly and welcoming staff. Did not have their bistecca Fiorentine, but it looked amazing! Recommended!

We went for lunch in late September 2014 after visiting the Leaning Tower. It was a little bit of a walk from the Leaning Tower of Pisa, but it was definitely worth it! We were early so there were very few diners at the restaurant at the time. My partner tried the "catch of the day" and was very delighted... More

We wanted something special during our trip to Pisa and so choose the San Paolo, located on a side street not too far from our hotel. The service and décor were both quite good, and both of us enjoyed our meal. I had the seabass and my wife the fritti misti. We paid a bit more than we expected, but... More

A the previous review has stated the food is top notch however the service is pretty poor. The waiters are friendly and helpful however they just leave it too long in-between seeing if you are ready to order, ready for more wine etc. This place would be so much better with a little more attention to detail.

Great food, but staff did not manage to serve. Everything took a long time, waiters wandered around without any purpose and we wondered if maybe they were high..

Glad we went slightly off the beaten track to San Paolo. The little restaurant was worth looking for. The staff were friendly and the meal was delicious, homemade and the portions were excellent. Although it was quiet the evening that we were there, there was still a nice atmosphere.
