I'm surprised by all the poor reviews for this place. Service for us was prompt and friendly. We had a pizza and lasagna, the lasagna was disappointing as it was mainly pasta and lacked meat. Pizza, whilst not the tastiest I've had in Italy, it...More

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.

We stopped here on the way back from the Leaning Tower. The staff were very friendly, pizza wasn't the best we've had in Italy, but was still pretty good. The location is excellent, a €2.50 cover charge per person seems a little steep.

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.

The only thing is Bar/restaurant do well is a bottle of water. The food is tasteless and difficult to swallow. The pasta was hardly cooked. Not to dwell too much on the overwhelming negatives but the staff were in a world of their own. Great...More
