This restaurant is special in so many ways. First, the decoration is like nothing you've seen before. It's like something you'd see in a palace. The service is unique too. The waiter was very happy and characterful. He always started a conversation with anybody even though they spoke different languages. Finally, the food was very special. It tasted ok, but... More

3 of us ate here en route to the airport. Lots of choice on the menu served by a characterful gentleman. Very friendly & managed a conversation despite his lack of English & our lack of Italian. About 40 Euros for one main course & wine/beer. Plenty of locals dining as well as tourists

This excellent restaurent is located near the Pisa train station We were a group of 8 persons and had a wonderful dinner with outstanding service. The food was the best we had during our 3 day Pisa visit. I highly recommend reserving a table in advance as the place is very popular, especially if you are more than 2 people.

Had a lovely lunch here. Nice people and very tasty simple Italian food. Don't come here if you are after western version of Italian food. It's a place where locals come to eat as well. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting good value, tasty meals from friendly people- the older gentleman who served us was lovely.

Had lunch here on the recommendation of a friend who visited it a number of years ago and nearly everything was the same, great food, healthy portions reasonably priced both food and wine, friendly service. The only change was that when my friend and his wife were here they didn't take plastic and the owner trusted them to nip down... More

We visited this place based on TripAdvisor reviews but were disappointed. Some reviews mentioned 'home cooking' but I still would have expected something a little better than even I could have knocked together at home. The fish with asparagus was extremely bland and the kids pasta carbonara was nothing special. (Their aunt cooks a much nicer one apparently). We were... More

Having just got off the Glasgow/Pisa flight we were famished. Not wanting to go for something busy and commercial, Google led us here and we were so glad. Very traditional home cooked and fresh Italian fare. Air conditioned and with a very friendly and attentive host. I always like it when you see locals having lunch and that was the... More

Talk to the owner, Giovanni! He'll see you right! A great variety of local dishes, reasonably priced, and the beat gnocchi in Pisa!

My husband and I spent a couple of nights in Pisa on our way home from our Tuscan trip. Our hotel recommended this restaurant. What a wonderful eating experience. The staff especially the elderly gentleman serving us. He was a perfect host. His service and humour made our evening. The food was just amazing. We have been going to Tuscany... More
