What a lovely hidden gem of a restaurant and hands down the best authentic Italian cuisine I have ever had. We spotted this restaurant prior to arriving and having wandered around the leaning tower we thought as it was just around the corner we'd see if they could fit us in. It was full however we were told to return... More

A nice place with simple yet good food. Service was excellent. For the endless staff, nice cosy atmosphere. Good wine, good wine again, good desert wine and good grappa =) great night there! Not sure I should post this comment though, I love to keep this place secret!

The service here was one of the worst that we experienced in Italy all week. The waitress was quite rude and not really interested in welcoming customers. Irrespective of the food, I'd definitely not recommend this place as food is at the center of Italian culture and no point going to a place which does not value customers!

We had a great meal here, complimentary prosecco to start with then hand made pasta dishes. Very good Italian home style cooking. Good variety of breads. Small restaurant definitely for the locals.

This was a restaurant recommended by our hotel and was just a block away from the tower. We were welcomed with a glass of Prosecco and a variety of great breads. Both of us enjoyed the most amazing pasta I've ever tasted. I had ravioli . It was delicious beyond description. We had no room for dessert but the owner... More

This unassuming and intimate restaurant on the outskirts of central Pisa accommodates just a few tables and is not surprisingly always fully booked. The food is authentic tuscan cuisine with fresh ingredients. Try the meat dishes.

This restaurant is a hidden gem! It isn't far from the tower and the square of miracles but it down a street that doesn't have much else on it, so it would be easy to miss. If you want to go to a restaurant where it isn't tourist central, the food is incredible and authentic and the wine just as... More

I'm usually skeptic with restaurant so close to touristic attraction And this restaurant is 3 min walk from the Pisa tower, in front of the main parking area . Well, After parking I was looking for a place to have lunch with family before visiting the tower etc... The restaurant was full but the waiter, very kindly, found a place... More

Very nice staff and a welcome drink The pasta was delicious, a lot of choice of amazing wine in a small bottle which is often enough for two persons. The deserts were surprising and fantastic Better book in advance as the place is small
