About the neighbourhood
There are a lot of restaurants offering traditional Tuscan kitchen, we love to go to Buti but everywhere they are; please read our suggestions and addresses in our information book at home. San Giovanni is at the center also of typical and famous localities for the “mercatini” that's open markets of antique like Bientina, Vicopisano, Cascina, Lucca etc. To visit the environs has been preferable to use a car but there are also the public transports especially for Pisa or Pontedera.
