Mediocre food, surly and slow service. They then had the cheek to charge 2€ a head cover charge. We ate on a small table in the cafe part, not even in the restaurant. Very poor.

Early evening meal after wandering around Pisa. Restaurant was fairly quiet but was early at 6:30. There seemed to be only one waitress at that time. Food was great, but came to realise after a few days in Pisa that all food we had was...More

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

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.

crowded place with busy terrace. several staff unfriendly and in overload mode. long waiting for just a simple toscany platter, which tasted fine but for sure was not a highlight better avoid the busy streets and try the side streets

We stumbled upon this café while looking for somewhere for lunch. It is very touristy, the kind of place we normally try to avoid, but it was hot, we were hungry, so it was convenient. We were served quickly by an English speaking waitress. My...More
