Poor table service. They charge €4 to sit there. Bread was stale. Food very average for Italy. Avoid this place. Overpriced.

Wanted to have a pizza before we left the Country - none here! Is that possible in an Italian restaurant? The staff couldn't really be bothered to serve & tutted at us when we weren't ready to order so we drank our drinks & left...More

Talk about being ripped off , food terrible, 4.50euro for small can of sprite 6.00euro for beer 4.00euro just to sit and eat and the food was lousy. Girl who served us was just as bad as the food. Maybe she had tasted it .

Don’t ask for draught beer if outside or sitting inside as 5€ for tiny glass. Always check menu before you order or you may get a shock. I reckon beer is over £12 a pint. Staff not very helpful. Toilets good and WiFi ok. Maybe...More

Mediocre food, surly and slow service. They then had the cheek to charge 2€ a head cover charge. We ate on a small table in the cafe part, not even in the restaurant. Very poor.

Stopped here for lunch, wish we hadn't. Whilst not that busy, it took an age to get someone's attention, an age to get our hands on a menu, and an age to place our order. To be honest, I wish we had just got up...More

This is what I call a tourist trap that survives and will survive on foot traffic from all the people that visit Pisa . My opinion is that if they concentrated on good quality food and service with a smile they would double the turnover...More

Ordered a coffee and still water. Not too ambitious. After 20 minutes, a sparkling water and a very bland coffee arrived. Not cheaper either. Best part about this is location, right next to great markets and street music.
