We had a couple of softdrinks and beers on the terrace of Lo Sfizio and decided to have a Tagliatelle Bolognese and a Ravoila Pomodore. A great choice, good food, reasonable prices.

Stopped here for breakfast with a group of friends while visiting Pisa. We sat at the tables outside which was very pleasant. We each had a coffee and a pastry and had a lovely time. Staff were very friendly and prices were reasonable.
