The sandwich menu is huge, you will have difficulties to make up your mind, so much choice! Very good quality, local products and very good prices (6/7€ for a very good quality sandwich) Get your sandwich and a beer, go and sit down in the...lovely square just in front of l’Ostellino, and enjoy la dolce vitaMore

The sandwiches are really good and the people are very friendly and warm. There's a park nearby and if you don't feel like eating in front of the store they give the food to you to go eat on a bench, it's a nice atmosphere....I gave it only 4 because they are extremely hyped up, so my expectations were the same, but although it's really good it's not the best sandwich I ever had.More

What everyone else said!! Fantastic food, best quality ingredients, friendly and welcoming service. Had 2 great sandwiches with some great chianti in the Italian sun. What could be better, you must try if you're in Pisa

A really nice place to eat a delicious “panino”. All the ingredients have a singular flavor. The guys are very friendly and polite. There you can also find good beers. I totally recommend it.

Incredible service where they recommended two wonderful sandwiches accompanied by a delicious wine. Hard to choose which sandwich was the best.

Best Tuscan Street food. Try Tuscan raw sausage. It is the best. All the rest is also great. Very friendly staff. Yummy. Take also Chianti together along with the meat.

Yummy sandwiches and friendly service. Very busy and popular! We did have to queue outside but it was worth the wait! Highly recommend! They detail the recipe outside for you to choose.

Came here for salumi and was not disappointed. Ordered a maxi board, which came with interesting yummy meats such as wild boar mortadella and raw sausage. As an American, the raw sausage was intimidating but delicious and can confirm I am feeling just fine. We...also tried a sandwich (#5). Everything was so good, bread was fresh as well. You can either eat in their small counter inside or outside. The guys here are hilarious and nice. Great little lunch spot to check out!More

AMAZING panini, lovely cheeses and super helpful staff, that speak English. This place gives you the authentic italian vibe, in between all the touristic restaurants in Pisa downtown.
