We were practically bullied by the staff which was sad as it was the last day of an otherwise lovely holiday eating great food and meeting lovely people. Staff laughed and talked about my friend after she requested politely if we could get served (we had been waiting some time). Our waitress was very surley when she took our order... More

We ordered pasta. When I saw them tipping it out of a ready made packet from a microwave - I didn't have very high expectations!! It was revolting - totally tasteless. I had 2 bites and I'm afraid left the rest. Really don't waste your time!

Exactly what you want for what it is, chance walk in off the street, no fuss, salads and pizzas orders and all were lovely. Service was attentive but not in your face. Would happily eat here again.

The plates and glasses were dirty, as was the restroom. The pizza was dry and the crust flavorless. The sodas were overpriced. The wait staff was inattentive. Had we did our due diligence and read reviews before choosing this place we obviously would have been better off. Don't make the same mistake we did. Oh, and Pisa in general is... More

Tried penne salmone and my girlfriend had penne all'arrabbiata. Pasta seemed dry and old. The arrabbiata had a hint of fish taste. The salmone had no visible fish. Left feeling hungry

Food is bad!!!!! Worst meal I had in Italy! The servers' attitude and attention to their customers was even worse than the food. It took forever to get them to take our order and it wasn't even that busy. Then when the food came, they only brought my and my son's dinners, not my wife's. We waited 10 min, then... More

This place has a great location and good service, let down by some really substandard food and beer taps clearly in need of a clean.

While walking towards Pisa train station we found this restaurant (prices seemed reasonable), so sat down(family of 4) and ordered lunch ~11:50 am. The table was not setup - no knives/forks/napkins. At 12:20 pm when inquired about our order, the waitress said 'coming soon' - but nothing happened. A french family sitting next to our table, who were there before... More

First night in Pisa and had to have a Pasta dish. I had Tagliatelle Bolgnese and my wife had Farfalle Salmon. Recommended, down from the Garibaldi square in the old town.

9 pm, Tuesday night. Not terribly crowded. Lovely spot in Pisa. Seems promising. My husband and I order two icecreams and fruit for dinner. 9 euros each - expensive, but hey, we're on the main street in Pisa, not far from the tower. So then we sit and observe the waiters go off and have a long smoke, families sit... More
