Monday night - quiet? Not at all and very glad we arrived at 8 pm because by 8.30 pm no walk-ins were possible. Service was most attentive with patient explanation of dishes due to our lack of understanding of the finer points of an Italian only menu. The food was perfect and the fillet steak was seasoned to perfection and... More

Arrived an hour before opening ..went back at 7.30 staff were all attentive and friendly. Pizzas were great kids loved them . Authentic Italian definitely worth the wait so many people arrived whilst we were there and could see by the familiarity with the staff they were all returning locals . If in the area ensure you should ensure you... More

We have been invited for dinner upon our arrival in the area. We started with mixed starters including fried porcini mushrooms then had a wonderful fiorentina that was totally mouth watering literally! The venue is ok and the service is very attentive although at time chaotic but the experience all in all a very good one!

Visited on first night as part of a tour across Italy. Food fantastic, we had pizzas. Didn't have starters as seen others with them and they were huge! Very well priced drinks and food, both of high quality. The owner was am absolute gentleman and made us very welcome. Would return again.

This place is well known for the quality of its Pizzas and its meat alike. Lately prices have been gone a bit up but quality is still the same.

Also advised to try this for an authentic local Italian by agroturismo la pisana. Absolutely fantastic family run warm welcome. The dishes of the day "use the best ingredients" the chef can buy seasonally....this is how it should be done! Antipasti from the house, followed by home made pasta and seafood and a huge sea bream to share. Bravo....to the... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by our hosts at The Agriturismo La Pisana and they were right to do so. Set on the very outskirts of Pisa in a residential area it is very popular with the locals, the 2 nights we attended we were the only non locals in. Be aware unlike in central Pisa the menu is...

Very friendly owner and attentive staff. Enjoyed a quality meal with everything obviously cooked fresh and loved the panna cotta especially. Buzzy atmosphere and good prices.

And little out of town but worth the trip. From pizza to steak via sea food. Obviously popular with the locals. I had the mixed seafood starter followed by fish. Beware if you go for the T bone steak as its vast, probably, enough for two. Much better than just sitting in the average hotel.
