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.

I ate a very delicious mortadella panini at this very popular place. Very reasonably priced with fresh ingredients and was made swiftly. They didn't seem to register my request for it to be made without cheese, but when i took It mouthful I realised it...had cheese. However, once I had removed the small qty present and there was no remaining impact on the flavour.More

Wanted to get away from the tourist traps near the Duomo complex and headed here. True to the reviews it was excellent. Had the vegetariano sandwich with a cheese board to follow - loved it. The truffle pate with walnuts and cheese was delicious.

Ordered a sandwich and a coke for lunch while walking back from the Leaning Tower to the city center. Wow - great sandwich! So delicious! It's a tiny hole-in-the-wall type restaurant, with perhaps only 8 or 10 bar stools to sit on and eat your...food along the walls of the restaurant. The Staff were very nice. You can't go wrong here. Super tasty, great prices. Highly recommended. My only complaint is that I wasn't in Pisa long enough to return another day to try a different sandwich!More
