We had a nice, but not memorable dinner here. The ravioli was a little underdone, the pork fillet was flavoursome, and the fried squid was good. We also tried the salad with almonds, which was tasty, but warmed up kidney beans with a little onion!...More

Food was fine, but not really special. Service could be better; staff with a friendly face would improve the business.

This restaurant is set in a small square where there are about five or six other cafes and eateries. As the night progressed the square filled with local families and tourists creating a lovely atmosphere. We ordered grilled prawns plus cheese and ham for starters....More

Used previous Trip Advisor reviews to find this. Glad we did. We sat in the little square and were served by a lovely Italian girl who was studying Law at Pisa University. The food was excellent and there was a good choice. We ate early...More

The bistro of my dreams is the little tiny restaurant; it’s the cute shop where you can go for a coffee or a glass of wine. It’s a place where you can eat the traditional Italian dish, sip a good wine and meet your people. It’s a place where you can chat while eating spaghetti, while learning secrets, sipping a “brunello”, or a grappa while listening to music or reading a book. Where love gets done and undone. And coffee. Where you’re early and it gets late. Here you are in my home. You are my guests and friends among friends. Here is my piano and my guitar, my books, my music; here’s the best recipe my mom gave me, and some biscotti and my grandpa’s Vinsanto wine.
