Such a warm, family run restaurant. The food was very good--loved the lasagna and the antipasto platters. Good house wine as well.

This is a very good family run restaurant. Donetto and his wife runs the restaurant with his wife in the kitchen and him and the front of house. The service was excellent and the food was fantastic. Will definitely visit again! GREAT!!!

I am writing this review on the experience of our family as a whole. I was not feeling well, so unfortunately did not eat, but the service here was great and they were genuinely concerned about me. The rest of the family enjoyed a lovely meal, my husband raved about the pasta and enjoyed his wine immensely. Both of my... More

Decided to visit Peperoncino after viewing the comments on TripAdvisor and was not let down. The owner of the place was an excellent host and described the dishes available in detail...the food was delicious, we had pasta and home made wine and it was amazing. Will definitely go back again if Im in Pisa.

Bottom line is that the place is good, the meals were enjoyable, but the place appears overrated, and I recommend sticking to the day specials: let me add that I am a local, and I would indeed recommend this as a possible pretty decent restaurant for tourists in search of a place close to the Leaning Tower: it tastes and...

Had the peperoncino pizza and lasagne for main - the best Italian meal we had so far - everything was cooked perfectly! if we could have managed dessert we... More

Had a night in Pisa enroute home from a rural holiday in Tuscany. The selection of pushy pizzerias we'd seen during the afternoon didn't look promising, but on the recommendation of others here we sought this place out. The decor is simple and doesn't look hugely promising, but the owner and his daughter who served us were wonderful hosts (I... More

From the moment we entered the restaurant to the time we left (over two hours later), the owner and his daughters were absolutely delightful hosts. He has a wonderful sense of humor and uses it to make his customers feel at ease, whether or not they speak Italian. (He serves as your waiter and host, but he will also entertain... More
