“delish and well priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

we were stumbling around post tower and pre flight looking for something and came across this little gem!
Starter and main plus a bottle of chianti (which was delish) with cover charge and bread for 50E.
I had an mind blowing mushroom entree which i can not remember the name of and polenta ragu. Super tasty and i liked they had some more interesting/traditional dishes! meatballs where definitely a stand out and while the matriciana was a bit bland for my tastes, the pasta was spot on.

“not so kind and the prices are not clear”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

Please beware of this restaurant. The waitress treated us quite rudely when she understood that we were travelling on a budget and trying not to spend too much. The portions were pretty poor, the pesto was clearly industrial and they asked us to pay 7.50 euros for a small portion of industrialized pasta with industrialized pesto. Moreover, at the end of the lunch they asked us to pay two euros more for "a tax" and for the bread. Please, be aware of this place, the management is unclear and the food is not at all good. Nearby, moving farther away from corso italia there are alternatives where you can have much better food for the same price or less and where the service is nice.

Gentile Signore,
mi spiace che lei abbia avuto l'impressione di essere stato trattato male,ma solitamente questo non avviene nel nostro ristorante,quindi penso che lei abbia frainteso l'atteggiamento della cameriera,che conosco bene e non fa queste differenze.
Lei,come tutti quelli che non vogliono pagare,lei dice con un badget limitato,invece di andare in un bar,o in una paninoteca,vuole andare ugualmente in un ristorante,per poi lamentarsi, inventando tutte storie.Proprio nelle traverse vicino a noi ci sono i locali che lei consiglia,quindi deve averci mangiato e deve averli trovati buoni,peccato che non abbiano cucina e nemmeno il contratto del gas,perchè non ne hanno bisogno,in quanto riscaldano al microonde i piatti precotti congelati che servono agli ignari Clienti,che,non capendo niente di cibo e di mangiare italiano, si permettono pure di dire che quelle porcherie sono buone,perfino più buone dei piatti freschi fatti da noi e li consigliano come lei ad altri.
Per finire un consiglio: uno come lei è meglio che va in questo tipo di locali,lì sta a suo agio.

“A real gem.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

My friend and I were spending a day in Pisa and looking for a place to have lunch when we happened upon this great little restaurant. Our host whose name I'm afraid I did not get was very helpful with translations of menus which are very varied. The food we ordered was fresh and delicious and we ordered house wine which was also lovely and very good value. Desserts were also good and homemade. We came away from our experience very happy and contented. Hope to go back someday for another good meal.

“Decent food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

Found this place by chance. The food was decent, and decent value for money. The letdown for me is the service. Compared to other places in Pisa I went to, I found the service a little abrupt and brash, not as welcoming.

“Lovely Fresh Food, Great Service & Good Value for Money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

This was a wonderful little restaurant with lovely food with fresh, local ingredients. Very cheap on price, 2 starters, 2 mains beer & wine for ~45 euros. The host was very friendly, spoke perfect English and chose very nice wine! Location is also good, would recommend!
