This is an unassuming looking little place looking as if they have used their own house tucked away in a side street that's not even close to the centre. It is, however, well worth a visit if you appreciate well cooked and presentd food and friendly efficient service. Front of house is all done(when we were there) by an older... More

After a visit to the congested area around the "Leaning Tower" it was good to explore this quieter part of town. We had lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The midday menu is very short, but we enjoyed our pasta starters and main courses. The house wine is good. There was not much choice for dessert, but we were told... More

We had a memorable dining experience. We were led to our table by, presumably, the owner, a man of mature years, dressed casually. He has an endearing laid-back attitude. We were offered a (complementary as it turned out) glass of prosecco and an attractive and tasty small piece of bruschetta with a garlic cream cheese and a half a cherry... More

Just made it back to the hotel after one of the worst dining experiences of my life. Restaurant recommended by the hotel. Difficult to find. Service unbelievably slow. Menu extremely difficult to decipher. My wife started with smoked salmon. Luckily she smelt it before she ate it! The main course was some sort of large, tasteless burger.. No seasoning or... More

We passed by this Restaurant one evening and decided to return the next night. Our meal started well with a complimentary aperitif and an amusee Bouche provided. The menu is only in Italian which is not a problem if there is a competent translator available . Sadly this was not the case. This made our food, when it eventually arrived,to... More

We had dinner here yesterday on the recommendation of our hotel. After a long walk across Pisa we were initially disappointed when we located the restaurant due to its " low key" frontage but by the end of the evening we were hoping we could return soon. Exceptional food, served with style. This is one place not to miss if... More

We ate in the evening having checked out a few other restaurants in the area, although it isnt much to look at from outside, there is a wonderful little courtyard at the back of the restaurant and it quickly filled up with locals which we thought was a good sign. Our meal was fantastic, we shared a mezze platter and... More

We were recommended this restaurant, by our hotel, and it was defiantly worth going. The manager was very welcoming, we sat in the back court yard, which was very sweet. The menu was in Italian, so we opted for pizza. The pizza was delicious. This more relaxed restaurant suited us as we had 2 young children ( the manager suggested... More

Nice little restaurant close to the central railway station in Pisa. We walked by twice to make sure it was actually a restaurant, but guests are seated in the cozy backyard. The menu was in Italian only, so a bit of a guess, though, with some help from the host we got a great and tasty meal. Very friendly staff... More
