Completely ignored by the owner and his waiting staff we had to left the table.The place is sad (food choice) and cold. Pizza on the food pass seemed to be a joke! Happy to leave the place as just next to this disaventured place we've found the best pizza ever. I understand that it is the oldest pizzeria in town... More

We had a margarita & marinara pizza here today - the pizza was brilliant, fresh & hot! The service was abrupt & average - food is on the slow side so be prepared to wait. 2-4 seats inside otherwise the rest is outdoors with smokers and hawkers who are constantly trying to sell you stuff. Visit for the food but... More

They made maybe the best pizza I have ever tasted in Italy. It really was the traditional italian pizza that we were expecting. Make yourself a favour and go there right now if you are in Pisa.

This is a very basic place, do not expect too much from it in terms of service or environment. Quite narrow inside, you may find some free table outside which is shared with the sandwich service. The pizza is not very thin as it is cooked in trays not directly on the owen floor. It is tasty, maybe even too... More

It's more a kinda like takeaway pizzeria, the favorite one of University students and teachers as well. I've been taking this pizza since I was a child and I think that it's really one of the most characteristics local goods. The pizza is quite thick and is cooked in fry- pan in a wood oven. I can't say that it's... More

Our friends in Pisa brought us here for traditional Tuscan cuisine, so traditional and old school, that our other Italian dining companions had not seen some of the dishes before. Definitely try their house-made and very special torte cecina which is a chick pea flatbread cooked in a huge cast iron pan inside the wood fired oven. Crispy and lacy... More

We dined here with a couple of friends from the UK, because we wanted them to taste what we though/hoped would be a real Italian pizza. It turned out to be a great disappointment. Two of our pizzas were burnt on the borders (all black like coal); we had roasted potatoes: a little, sad dish and… burnt as well! The... More

We had calzone x 2, spaghetti al ragu and lasagne with a drink each - all eaten and thoroughly enjoyed - its authentic, it's pleasant, it's easy and it's delicious - nothing more needed for my family! Loved it and will go back for lunch again!

We ate here for lunch on a daytrip to Pisa. So very glad we did! It's a great place for Cecina and Focaccia - mostly locals, so brush up on your basic Italian, didn't cater much to the tourist crowd, but so very worth it!
