Very tasty burgers, big portions, good service (girls on roller slides) nice American atmosphere. Sometimes overfull but never had to wait for our orders yet. Cupcakes...hmm better try some other dessert nearby.

What a great restaurant, we were at the end of our holiday and looking for something nice, tasty and fun. The food was unreal, my family had fajitas, burgers, southern fried chicken and some beer, all the food was unbelievably tasty. It was also great fun for the kids, girls flying around on roller skates and a real cool atmosphere.... More

This was the third time we visited this restaurant, and initially we really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. This time service was really terrible. We were amongst the first people in the restaurant, and ordered after 5 minutes.My boyfriend ordered a burger, I ordered Eggs benedict. We ordered from the brunch menu. We wait and wait. Maybe they forgot... More

I am very sorry for your negative experience for brunch. there must have been some problems because usually our brunch is really appreciated. I also ask you to excuse the bad service and for the long wait and I thank you for writing to us what happened in the diner of Pontedera. We forwarded your complaint to the manager and... More

We had there a Sunday brunch but it was really heavy, greasy and extremely expensive. The place is nice and the waitresses very kind but I don't think I will suggest this restaurant to anyone...

Interior in 1950s diner style, all kinds of artifacts from USA (license plates, football team symbols, etc.). Waitresses are serving your food on roller skates (or at least take you to your table ). Very good burgers, onion rings were good (but too few), Cesar's salad and the Mexican wrap was not our taste... But definitely worth a visit and... More

On our way to Amedei Chocolates, we stopped for a quick lunch. The hamburgers and fries were good. The service was quick. The atmosphere is pretty much 1950's American Diner complete with a roller skating waitress!

It is really funny and the service is super fast even when is crowded. Food quality is good and the menu is wide. Very good attention to vegetarians and gluten free. Worth a try.

Great atmosphere & service however the food is ok at best. The best value is the burger meal. Make sure you call & reservea table especially on weekends

The place is very nice, original furniture, clean, fubby staff, VERY rich and varied menu and the food is consistently good. Place very funny and original, it is like stepping back in the american 50s. The donuts and the pancakes are a nice variant that makes you think to the Simpsons and to the Americans TV series. The price is... More

Sono cuoco Americano e sono venuto al questo ristorante 2 volte. L'idea è carina ed i decorazioni autentici e servizio buono. Il cibo però non è tutto bene, con un menù così grande è quasi impossibile fare tutto per bene, poi l'ingredienti giusti non si trova sempre qui in Italia, così e difficile fare il cibo completamente genuino. Avevo provato... More
