We had a lovely meal here, definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. I had wonderful fresh pasta with the nicest pesto I've tasted. The staff were really friendly and the atmosphere was great.

This place knows how to treat tourists nicely! In between all the tourist traps this restaurant sets itself apart by the service they provide with a smile, good quality food for fair prices!

We wanted to try this well recommended diner, despite rush hour at hand. Due to this, service took some time but was well worth the wait - all foods were tasty, ingredients of high quality. We had a lovely pizza, fried sea foods and caprese salad, rigotta pasta. Price level a bit on higher end compared to general italian level,... More

We wanted a special meal for our last night in Italy. This fit the bill, with a lovely starter of mixed bruschetta, followed by mains of pasta specials, gnocchi and carbonara. The puddings were as good a previously mentioned, drinks were lovely light reds, sparkling wines and the best aperol of the holiday. The owner was very friendly and gave... More

It is a typical tourist restaurant,near the tower.The staff was nice and they speak English.Food was alright,we had a pizza and a spaghetti with seafood(it was a daily offer).Unfortunately there was a piece of long black hair in the pasta...that pretty much ruined the experience.

We are here on our last night in Pisa and for us, it was one of the best meals we had whilst in Italy. We had the antipasta to start which was nice, hubby had a pizza and I had a chorizo tomato dish which was really tasty. The owner seems to dart about like a mad man trying to... More

We went for trad italian food at the Il Peperoncino and didn't go wrong. The restaurant itself consists of a few tables on the street and doesn't impress a lot initially, but once you're seated its fine. The lasagna was good, although the portion was a bit on the small side. The spaghetti All'amatriciana was also nice and well balanced,... More
