So it was our last night of our trip to Italy. We covered Piemonte, Puglia and were finishing off our trip in Pisa. It's been 12 years since our last trip here (this time sans enfants). We did our obligatory visit to the Tower but mainly stayed near the Via Roma area. After 11 days of eating and drinking our way through the country, we decided to go simple ---couple of pizzas to finish off our journey. Our concierge at the Hotel Bologna (see my separate review) recommended Funicula. Just a short walk across the bridge from Via Roma, this eatery was just was the doctor ordered. It is very non-descript but as you walk in, the atmosphere is lively, convivial and perfect. They serve only pizzas and calzone. Wine list is decent. But the quality of the dough, the wood-burning oven and the toppings were excellent. The prices were super reasonable. Not much English spoken as the patrons were mostly locals and students. Don't go researching....take our word. If you have the yearning for a good simple pizza meal, go no further....Happy travels.

On our first night in Pisa we were looking for somewhere to eat and came across this busy restaurant along the river. Since it was very busy we figured it must be good so popped in, but as we hadn’t booked ahead we were told the earliest free spot was in an hour, so were advised to come back then which we did. The restaurant was still busy, contributing to a great lively atmosphere inside. The menu in Italian consisted almost entirely of various types of Pizza’s along with a few Pasta dishes. We went for a Fish Pizza and a Vegetarian Pizza. Both arrived quite quickly and were absolutely delicious. Very cheesy, and the Vegetarian one in particular was completely covered in copious amounts of topping. We were both left completely stuffed afterwards and somewhat surprised when the bill came in lower than we were expecting – always a bonus! A must visit if you want to try good quality authentic pizza in Pisa.

A very popular place among students so you better reserve a table in advance. Do not despair the place is also a take-away. The pizzas are fine and cheap and the ambiente cosy.

we just went there but be really in an hurry. We got just some pizzas and beers but either if the restaurant was full of people we were serviced in the right time and with the good items. the only negative point to set on evidence was that they do not have draft beer but probably was a momentary gaps.
