The service was really pleasant and good. Food was excellent! The menu was in italian and there was not that much where to choose from, but everything we ate.. meat with mushrooms, tagliatella with mushrooms, panna cotta and creme brule were perfect! It was a small restairant with nice atmosphere. Highly recommend this place.

Went here, as the place we were recommended was closed and a vegetarian menu was advertised here.. Took this as an omen, and were glad we did. Fantastic food (rare for me to say as a vegetarian) and very friendly service. Rolando and Rossario were perfect hosts - friendly and generous - only sorry we couldn't converse more in Italian...

Came across this place accidentally while exploring Pisa with my girlfriend, the smell enticed us to enter as we passed. The layout and atmosphere made for an immediate welcoming and romantic feeling. The way the wine is displayed, and an open fire. The service was incredibly friendly, which again added to this feeling. I had the meat 3 course meal,... More

Great lunch menu! Don't go there for a quick lunch, take your time for a delicious 3 course menu (local, fish or vegetarian). Really friendly host and the meat prepared next to your table in the fireplace.

Very nice place somewhere in Pisa...))) I did not know that is has any Tripadviser`s awards.. We were just walking the streets with my friend and found it in one of the lanes....I like most of all that nobody spoke English there... I guess the man who serve us was the owner of this place, he spoke only Italian. It... More
