Had a night in Pisa enroute home from a rural holiday in Tuscany. The selection of pushy pizzerias we'd seen during the afternoon didn't look promising, but on the recommendation of others here we sought this place out. The decor is simple and doesn't look hugely promising, but the owner and his daughter who served us were wonderful hosts (I... More

From the moment we entered the restaurant to the time we left (over two hours later), the owner and his daughters were absolutely delightful hosts. He has a wonderful sense of humor and uses it to make his customers feel at ease, whether or not they speak Italian. (He serves as your waiter and host, but he will also entertain... More

Excellent authentic Italian food at very reasonable prices. Check out the daily specialities. Very welcoming owner with great sense of humor. Menu card includes descriptions in English. The restaurant is only a 5-minute walk away from Pisa tower. We will definitely go back when visiting Pisa again.

Chose to eat here based on other reviews but even with a map this restaurant was easy to miss, it took a second turn down the street to spot it. However the proprietor was quick to spot us and came out to talk to us. Once seated the service was first class with the specials board described in English. The... More

Visited the restaurant twice with friends whilst on a recent trip to Pisa. Danilo the proprietor and his daughter Julia were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Enjoyed the food, dining alfresco with a wonderful atmosphere. Will certainly visit again on our next trip to Italy,
