Wouldn't give the dog at home, the mixed meat main on offer here... Parmesan cheese that didn't taste or smell of cheese, on a tasteless lasagne.dirty water glasses and when we went inside (cold)..Shoved in... More

There location is actually a bit of a plus in my opinion. They're tucked back in a small alley off the main street. But the alley angles towards the tower, so if you're sitting in the right spot you can still have a view. The staff was very friendly and attentive, and spoke passable English. We all had a Calzone.... More

Visited with my wife and we chose to sit in the lovely outdoor setting with a view of the Leaning Tower. Service and the food both very good together with the Vino.

Dropped in here for a bite to eat after visiting the tower. The atmosphere of the restaurant is great. We just tried the pizza here,and it was truly delicious. Service is friendly and priced fair

As it was sunny, we sat outside, with a view of the leaning tower, but there are many tables inside , as the place goes through to another street. Starters of a mixed salad and a dish of white beans served with chopped onions were fresh and tasty, followed by a plate of Penne Bolognese (spaghetti bolognaise is an English... More

We dropped in for a quick lunch here after wandering around the nearby tourist spots. If you sit outside you'll have a view of the tower ahead of you. In this area you have plenty of places to pick from to eat. Considering that you are so close to the tower prices are reasonable. Service was prompt. The staff I... More

We almost missed it, because the terrace of this lovely pizzeria is hidden behind a building. But when you look back towards the town you cannot miss it. We both had a great pizza and a bottle of Vernaccia di San Gimignano, the very tasty white wine we had learned to appreciate on our visit to Tuscany. Once in a... More

Awful Pizza Cheap plastic cheese No tomato Very rude staff when we complained. They said they didn't expect the English to know what mozzarella was . Avoid

Looking for somewhere for a quick lunch after seeing the tower and before catching the Pisamover to the airport. Location was good: quiet, as just off the main thoroughfare, and warm enough to sit outside with a view of the tower. We both had pizza: lots of topping but base a bit thick round the edges. Decent enough food, friendly... More
